Hi: If you're talking about the pier in Galveston, Texas (about 50 miles south of Houston), on the night before our recent cruise, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Galveston On-The-Beach. Every room has a view of the coastline (the busy seawall highway is in front but it's not noisy). The staff was wonderful, and they provide free transportation to the cruise port; just let them know you'd like a ride to the port when you check in.

We took a Galveston-based limo service from the airport to the Galveston hotel. We felt the cost per person was a bit high for all the waiting around we had to do; and were informed at the airport that you can get a taxi for less (if your party has three people or more). We would opt for a taxi to Galveston next time.

On the night of returning from the cruise, we stayed at a Holiday Inn Express Intercontinental near the the IAH airport. No hot water! No adjustment to our bill. We were not impressed.

Thanks for your reply. But it is the port of Houston we will be sailing out of. This is where NCL has their port. Since it is fairly new, its hard to find anything on the web. But did find some info, to stay in Clearlake, which is suppose to be close to the pier.
Thanks again

The closet town to the Houston port is La Porte (small TX town). Do a hotel search and see what you come up with. Clearlake is a nice area.
