I booked the hotel via their website with a great non refundable deal. Our room was selected at check in. We arrived early and were given a King.
It is a great location for being near the Museum and Galleria areas, but the hotel is directly off the freeway so be prepared for the sound of traffic. There isn't really any areas you can walk to near the hotel, everything from dining to attractions will need to be driven to but with the ease of the freeway it is not really a problem getting around.
The staff was great. They were very helpful with directions to different areas, offered their free shuttle and made daily trips to the Galleria.
Our room was a little dated but very clean. They had left a note that renovations are in progress and that they would be as quiet as possible. We really were not disturbed by the noise, but I would not have booked if I had known they were under construction. My daughter and I did not want to use the pool with the men on the roof, so we drove to Galveston and braved the spring breakers. There was security in the parking lot which we liked when we returned in the evenings or later at night.
We would book again if we were going to travel to the Museum or Galleria area.
