My husband & I are celebrating our 40th Anniversary. We've stayed in many places in Galveston but never here. Didn't know exactly what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. Not as fancy as their sister property The San Luis but absolutely we are happy to be here.
Had a quick check in. When they learned it was our anniversary, they gave us a coupon for a free breakfast buffet our 1st morning at their restaurant The Jetty. It was ver good. They also gave us coupons for 3 local restaurants that are part of The Landry's chain. We went out to eat dinner on our 1st night and came back to a beautiful tray in our room of cut fruit, 3 kinds of cubed cheese and a chilled bottle of champagne. So pleasantly surprised!
Our room is very nice.. We have a fantastic view of the Gulf of Mexico from our private balcony. We also had a great nights sleep on a very comfy bed! Easy access to beach across from the hotel.
This seems to be an older hotel, but remodeled very nicely. It does have outdoor access to your room but it really was not a problem at all.
Please be aware you do need to request a room on floors 6-8 for a great gulf view. Lower might have no view even though every room has a balcony and faces the gulf. Very pleasant pool area with separate children's pool area. No Spa. Our room overlooks pool. Nice & Pretty~
Every employee we pass has greeted us with a smile.
So far, we have no complaint.
A/C works great too.
