My husband and I booked an Executive Suite (RM# 1609) at the San Luis Resort Hotel in Galveston, Texas on April, 10, 2014; we checked in around noon. We were excited in celebrating our anniversary. What should have been an excellent getaway was a horrible nightmare. We found what appeared to be moldy stains on the sheets and the coverlet... More

We planned a wedding for 75 people with most of our guest coming from out of town. We had a rooming list that was given 2 months prior to check in with detailed information and went over it the day before the general check in to make double sure no problems would arise, but that did not happen. From my... More

My husband and I stayed at the San Luis last week in Galveston and were very happy with our entire experience.

My wife and I had great stay at the San Luis during our three day visit to Galveston.
