The hotel is real nice... Probably the top 2-3 hotels in Galveston. It is not on the beach (about a mile from it) but it is right there next to Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, The Aquarium, which is this Aquarium,is one of the best in the entire south. They have now the "Festival of Lights".. with over 1 million Christmas lights, but it is due to end soon, as the holiday season is nearly over. The Moody gardens has the largest Imax screen in Texas, but really, they need to change their movies selection more often. The hotel has very comfortable beds, nice pillows, and is very clean. I am not an easy sleeper in a new place but this was nice bed and comfortable.. I slept late both nights..As mentioned, the "Discovery Pyramid" which has a very interesting display of sound, music, and how sound waves works, and a "Happy Feet" 6 minute film for $12 for adults that is severely outdated.. had the same video for years... need to change. They have the Rainforest Pyramid, which is a constant temperature all year round with monkeys, anacondas, exotic birds, including at least a dozen McCaws.. all beautiful...worth the trip there to see it. Sorry.. I was telling you about the main attractions on campus... not the hotel.. but really they are related, because this is where the fun is. It is not cheap going to the different pyramids if you have a family especially, but for $320 (not cheap) you can purchase a membership for the entire family for a year (up to 5) then.. everything is included. River Otters.. All the IMAX movies, butterflies, Aquarium, discovery pyramid, no extra charge for an entire year. Back to the hotel. They have a nice pool.. but even though it is heated.. it is outside, so you have to deal with the elements in the winter. All the staff are nice, professional.. Just what you'd expect from a nice hotel. All in all, if you want to do activities in the Moody Gardens area, and you like nice service and comfort.. This is your place. If you like the beach within walking distance... With the same class.. Maybe the San Luis Resort or Hotel Galvez might be more to the liking.. There is a lot to do in this area... And they do have a day pass and a 2 day pass for everything... I give this place a 5 star.
