Great facility for a conference. There were some issues. First, my cell phone battery. Despite turning everything off on my phone to keep the phone from searching, it would burn through a battery by lunch. Wifi wasn't that great either. However, the conference facility was nice. Staff was friendly. Room was nice and had a good view. Food was very... More

Very nice hotel with many amenities. We chose the hotel because of its accommodation of cruisers. They provide for long term parking while on a cruise along with transportation to and from the port. We utilized the valet parking so when we call for port pickup we also give them our valet tag number and they have the car ready... More

My wife and I stayed two nights while attending my 50th HS Class Reunion. The negotiated rate for the event was very good considering the rates for other less desirable properties in the area. The hotel staff was very friendly, helpful, and efficient. Check-in was very easy and our room was impeccable. The facilities provided for our reunion events were... More

During my stay, I saw everything from families going to the beach to black tie galas and that seems to sum up the property well. It provides a comfortable, but upscale, backdrop to whatever brings you to the island. The rooms were well appointed and spacious. The staff was friendly and professional. Special thanks to the bar staff who went... More

The rooms are very nice. They are modern decorated clean rooms. I really love that it is so centrally located to all the entertainment in Galveston and right next door to Moody Gardens. You won't be disappointed. Staff is great.

I stayed 2 nights on a business trip. Service was great , especially the breakfast and lunch staff at the "cafe in the park". They were friendly, efficient and the staffing level was great for our group. The 6:30 a.m. start time for room service and the cafe was a bit late for us- we had to rush through breakfast.... More

We had a conference here and it was a great place for families. The water park is within walking distance but the pool and grounds are enough to keep most kids happy. The conference area was very good for a smaller conference with separate meeting rooms for breakouts.
