A great get away

Pros: This location was wonderful. It was away from all the noise of the seawall and traffic. Seemed almost secluded which was very nice for our weekend.
I just received a message saying the room I wanted was not available? Odd, that we were already home when it was received. We loved the Galvestonian and would stay there again. Everything was clean in the rooms and they had everything we needed. I would suggest that they do put clothes hooks up behind the bathroom doors and our cold water when shut off would sometimes come on again. Our garbage door was stuck in the open position but we managed. We did have to call maintenance to fix two TV's that were stuck in some code or position. We could not have have faster service. What a nice man he was. The view from our room on the third floor was great and we were able to sit out and enjoy listening to the wind and waves. It was a much needed get away for us. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
