Reviewed yesterday NEW

Got a 6th floor room overlooking the pyramids. Fantastic view. Clean and spacious king size room with couch in sitting area. Service was great. Gymnastics meet was right downstairs so extremely convenient. Price is lower for off-season in February. Since most of the resort activities was closed for the season, it seems that they wouldn't charge the resort fee though....

We had lunch at the Cafe in the Park. The food was fantastic. My sandwich was yummy and the chips were delicious. I ate the entire plate full. Better yet was our server Beth. She was absolutely wonderful. Her friendliness and attention to detail was excellent. She exemplifies the kind of service I love. I'll be back!

My wife, myself and two children ages 3 and 6 stayed here 3 days before our cruise on February 12th. Loved the resort, very beautiful. Nice pool area, cafe restaurant and staff. This is the off season and a lot of activities were not available. The kids club, outdoor bar area, aquarium pyramid (renovations) and schlitterbahn, next door, were all...

Booked using hotels.com with 2 separate reservations, one room for my family and the other room for my parents. Both rooms with bayou views, in each reservation, we specified a preference for joining rooms and higher floor if possible. After a long day of travel from YVR to IAH and another 2 hr drive to Galveston from IAH, we finally...

I would definitely stay here again. The facility was nice and so were the rooms. All of the staff I had interactions with were very helpful, considerate, and always smiling. Denise at the lobby bar was awesome and took great care of us so be sure to keep a look out for her!

Very nicely appointed room with a lovey view of Christmas lights. Decorated inside and out for Christmas. Light display fantastic. Ice sculpture exhibit a bit pricey. Excellent accommodations for a midweek getaway, not crowded.close to restaurants. Delicious breakfast on the hotel patio.

I don't normally write reviews, but this one deserves it. Not everywhere is PERFECT and this is no exception. My spouse and I stayed for an anniversary getaway. Upon arrival the hotel clerk was warm and friendly. I noticed that the valet parking was $20/day, and when I asked the clerk she said it was included in our price. That...

This is a nice place and the employees are very helpful. Would just love it if they had offered free coffee and tea in the morning. The single cup room coffee maker does not work for me and the Starbucks in the hotel is way too crowded in the morning to get a large coffee to go. Only one microwave...
