“Not too crowded even in peak time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Michael, the front desk person, addressed us by name every time he saw us and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. It felt upscale in that regard. We chose this hotel because it a pet area that is fenced in and lets you little ones play. We also spent most of our time at the beach, but ended up really liking the pool and bar at the pool, so we hung out there pretty often as well. Nice clean rooms and the staff was always accessible for anything extra you needed. There were no hidden fees or hassles. I travel for work (lots) and this made it a quiet nice place to hang out. Only thing that could have made it better is if the hotel had designed some rooms to open up to the pool area directly and that the pet area was available on the ground floor. You had to take an elevator down to that. But these are little things after all. Thanks you so much Michael if you read this. You were the best!

Room Tip: Request first floor rooms as the stairwells got warm during the day. Pool side of the hotel was much...

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights and I'm so glad we did. It didn't have any pictures here so a bit hesitant on staying but when viewing the reviews, took a chance. I did submit my own pictures after the stay.

The room:
This place is new. I loved that fact. It was very clean. Cold ac. Fully equipped kitchen and I didn't find anything amiss. No oven but that was ok by me.
Did get the extra pillows and towels that was requested. Although they were feather instead of foam.
Bedding was super clean and comfortable.
All in all, Room was comfortable and spacious. Lots of lights.

Pool was fantastic and is in the middle of and shared by the Marriott courtyard. Bar and food by the pool, eat and drink at the bar or they will come up to you and deliver at your table or even at the pool. Clean bathrooms next to shower by the pool. Extra towels ready for use and a bin for the used ones.
One feature that really stuck out was the handicap accessible pool lift.

Staff was ok. Check in was a bit cold. Overnight was trying to be somewhat personable. Day front desk was very nice and helped with directions. Didn't encounter cleaning staff much but they smiled when passing by.

One of the newest hotel/suites in Galveston, beautiful decor, super clean rooms, beautiful pool! The kitchenette was impressive and well stocked, pool was beautiful, room was immaculate with TONS of cabinets.. Very impressed with the quality of the room, loved the location, quiet and away from the hustle & bustle of the Strand.. Loved our trip and fell in love with Galveston! See ya next summer Galveston!

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor facing the sea wall, however this hotel is located behind the Courtyard...

We stayed there on may 23, when we checked in we had some of the best customer service I have ever received. The girl at the front desk was super sweet and tried to do everything she could to help us, I believe she was the manager. she gave us some great suggestions on where to eat and where to visit. I loved the room we had, we had an amazing view of the pool which is gorgeous. It has an beautiful waterfall and was warm to. The pool bar added a nice touch to everything. the only thing that could have been better was how long we stayed we didn't want to leave!

Room Tip: the two bedroom suite is my favorite nice kitchen and the one we stayed in had a great view of the p...

The rooms were immaculate and the pool with it's cabanas and poolside cafe were the perfect place to spend the entire day! We went to the beach only once because the of the seaweed. Plus, our kids preferred the pool with its stone waterfall and good music playing in the background.

What a great hotel. The service was excellent which care given to the details. The rooms were spotless and well stocked. The pool area was very nice. There was a full service bar for drinks and a waitress walking around to service your every need food or drinks. The employees made sure during the day that the restrooms were stocked and clean, pool towel rack stayed full.Employees made sure you were well taken care of

However, we saw a roach in our room. The room was slightly smaller than expected, but nice and well equipped. The pool that is shared with the Courtyard is fun for the kids and there is a bar next to it for the adults. The breakfast is the same as all other Towneplace Suites: sparse. Bring your own food or eat in the Courtyard.

The property is far down the west end of Seawall Blvd, so don't expect to be within walking distance of the Pleasure Pier.
