Wonderful weekend

The people at the front desk could not be nicer! Cindy checked us in, gave us tons of information and remembered us throughout the weekend. The rooms were beautiful, very clean and well-cared for, with an amazing view! We were on the 4th floor and that was plenty high enough to watch the waves and see the pool from our private balcony. Breakfast was coffee, tea and orange juice with danish, fruit (oranges, bananas. and apples), and some ridiculously good donut holes! I hear breakfast choices and availability changes from time to time. The Galvestonian is very close to the end of Galveston Island, but we enjoyed the privacy and easy walk to the beach (no seawall or road to cross). The only downside is there is not a lot else within walking distance.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

We really enjoyed dinner at Fisherman's Wharf. We were there during a very busy travel time (Memorial Day weekend) and found it easier to get to restaurants at the Port than further up Seawall Blvd. Get up for sunrise - the beauty is worth the lost sleep!

Great resort for relaxing getaway

The Galvestonian offers well-equipped ocean view condos in a resort that provides many amenities. The pool and hot tub are large. There is a spacious deck, with many lounge chairs and tables. The grounds are lovely and include picnic tables, barbecue equipment, and even a fire pit. There are on-site basketball and tennis courts. The beach is great--flat, clean, and wide. Best of all, it is far away from the sea wall crowds and the entertainment piers. It is a wonderful place for walking and enjoying views of the water and seabirds.

Birthday weekend

My expierence has been excellent! This was actually my second time staying here. The location is the best if you don't want to stay on the main drag of all the hotels and madness at the other end of the beach! Here it's peaceful, calm, clean and relaxing! You won't find that at the other end of Galveston beach. The hotel itself is right on the beach! Its actually not a hotel but luxury condos, which I love! The place is beautiful and updated!A great place for friends, family, couple getaways! Fully stocked kitchen (cups,silverware,pots.ect) beautiful pool and beach chairs and umbrella to rent. Barbecue areas to grill with family. Lounge areas outside. Galveston is great but do know you won't find a crystal blue waters. It's a bit of muddy type of beach, still great though!
