I am so happy to hear we were able to get the reservations straightened out and a complimentary upgrade as well! Booking directly with hotel is always nicer because you're speaking to someone on property. I apologize for the bumpy start but I'm happy we were able to turn it around. Thank you so much for staying with us and please come back soon!

We had the pleasure to have Ja'Markis Nwadiei greet us at our dining table. It was my cousin's birthday and he made celebrating her day extra special. He was so attentive and professional. He is truly an asset to this company.

We stayed here for a convention held next door at the Galveston Conventon center. All the staff members were very courteous, and our room was comfortable. We did not eat at the restaurant since we ate at the convention however we did go to the bar and the drinks were good!

There was a ball of chewed up gum on our dressing table. The gum had hair stuck on it. Presumably, this was the fault of the housekeeping staff.

We travelled to the cruise terminal in the hotel's complimentary shuttle. We made the reservation the previous day, when we arrived, and had no problem with organising. The service we received was excellent, efficient and the staff were very helpful.
