My wife and I are from NC - and had never been to Galveston. The #1 TA rating is spot on. The sea wall area is cool, but way too packed and very limited beaches - so we were very thankful that the Galvestonian is on the east beach where its much quieter and the beaches are more like we're used to from NC.
The room was well decorated, the porches large enough for spending time soaking up the amazing view of the gulf and dozens of ships always anchored out there.
The staff (particularly Dolores) were perhaps the best part. They called before our trip to offer us free umbrellas & chairs every day we were there. They called on our last day to tell us that we could check out as late as we wanted to in the afternoon. And after we told them it was our babymoon during my wife's first trimester, they gave us a super cute gift package for our new baby on the way out. We had never hugged hotel staff before, and wish we could have done even more for these sweet people...
Cheers to you, Galvestonian staff!
