I got married in Galveston in March, and my husband and I booked a suite at this property for our wedding weekend. We liked that it was a small hotel compared to most on the Island. The room was beautiful and spacious, with modern, comfortable furniture and a great view of the harbor. It had a separate bedroom and even had a small dining area in the living room. Since we had a lot to do over the weekend, we didn't get a chance to take advantage of the complimentary appetizer or dessert at the restaurants nearby. We agree with some of the other reviews about the very odd light switches - they were difficult to figure out which switch worked with which lights! The continental breakfast left a lot to be desired as well - it was really disappointing. Parking was adequate and fairly secure as well, and we liked having the option of using amenities at their partner properties, where we had family staying.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and thought that it was an excellent value for the amenities and service. We would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants to be close to many local restaurant, the water and within walking distance to The Strand district.
