This is a newly renovated (and I think re-branded) hotel in Galveston. We went down to the Island on a spur of the moment overnight trip. The property has some really interesting design colors and shapes. Our fridge looked like an orange carry-on piece of luggage!
The hotel is clean. The staff was friendly. My only complaint was that we booked a king room and when we got to our room it was two queens. A quick trip back to the desk solved that but I had booked on-line about 4 hours before we showed up and they were not full. Not sure what happened but the desk cleared it up quickly.
The hotel is in a good location relative to the main Galveston attractions. It is a short walk to Pleasure Pier and about a 10 minute car ride to the Strand. Moody Gardens is a bit farther away but nothing in Galveston is that far away from anything else.
The room was a nice size, the bed was comfy and the AC worked well (although a little noisy.) We'll go back. Galveston lacks 3-4 star hotels and this one qualifies in that range.
