I agree with Luanne, but I'd also suggest that you go to the hotel's website rather than booking through Galveston.com. There can be some changes that aren't noted on Galveston.com (cruise parking, non-smoking, shuttles, etc.).
Have a wonderful cruise!

It was part of our package, so not something we arranged ourselves, but when we sailed out of Galveston we stayed at a beautiful place. I'm pretty sure it was a Wyndham....the Galvez, I think it was. I'm sure it isn't cheap, but if you can spring for it, it was one of the nicer places we've stayed at before a cruise.
