    Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention Center
    Galveston, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1773 reviewsTripAdvisor (1773)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention Center is an excellent choice if you're looking to turn a boring business trip into a quick family getaway. The first thing you'll notice about this complex in Galveston (roughly 51 miles southeast of Houston) is its Egyptian-inspired architecture. Yes, several of its buildings look like the Great Pyramids of Giza, but rather than crawling with mummies, they contain a rainforest, a 3D movie theater and an aquarium. The property also features its own convention center, and the 24-hour business center makes it easy to get work done, no matter the hour. Meanwhile, the kiddos will be kept busy at the water park (located next door) or with activities scheduled through the Kid's Crew. Recent guests say that great customer service isn't lost in the large property; most found hotel staff to be helpful and friendly. And at the end of the day, you can all sit down to a family dinner at Shearn's Seafood and Prime Steaks or Café in the Park, but be warned that they're all pricey. Recent guests say that the spacious accommodations are perfect for larger groups; those who stayed in one of the suites appreciated the Jacuzzi tub and the views from the private balcony.

    The San Luis Resort, Spa & Conference Center
    Galveston, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3048 reviewsTripAdvisor (3048)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Vying for attention with nearby Moody Gardens, The San Luis Resort, Spa & Conference Center in Galveston boasts twice as much meeting space as its primary competitor, as well as a variety of on-site amenities. Sure, it may not neighbor a water park, but The San Luis does cater to the kiddos with a waterslide and a plunge pool (and to adults with a swim-up bar). The property also houses a full-service spa, just in case lounging poolside doesn't quite get you to your R&R quota. Younger travelers will also love Blake's Bistro, but if older visitors prefer a more elegant atmosphere, there are serveral other on-site restaurants to choose from. Yet despite all of its offerings, recent guests expressed mixed feelings about The San Luis: Some praise the guest rooms for their comfortable beds and contemporary decor, while others complain about disorganized customer service staff.

    Hotel Galvez & Spa, A Wyndham Grand Hotel
    Galveston, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 4538 reviewsTripAdvisor (4538)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    This historic hotel in central Galveston (52 miles southeast of Houston) celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2001, yet it's hardly showing its age. Though they are fairly small, Hotel Galvez's guest rooms all feature contemporary luxuries like iPod docking stations and complimentary in-room Wi-Fi. And on-site amenities – like the spa and the heated outdoor pool (which the Hotel Galvez shares with its sister Wyndham property, The Tremont House) – are as modern as they come. Recent guests were impressed by the Galvez Bar & Grill, which serves traditional southern Texas food with ingredients like cilantro and roasted corn. And the restaurant's Sunday Champagne brunch is a hit. But according to previous travelers, the real star of the hotel is the staff, who provide friendly and accommodating Southern hospitality. Some visitors, though, do warn to drive or opt for a cab because the area around the hotel can get sketchy after dark. And for those who are Wyndham Rewards members, you can earn and redeem rewards points during your stay thanks to the property's Wyndham affiliation.

    La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa
    Montgomery, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 1488 reviewsTripAdvisor (1488)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Situated in Montgomery, Texas along Lake Conroe, La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa is a huge hit with families for one reason: It has a water park. Kids can easily spend hours riding the slides and splashing around in the Aqua Park, and when they tire of that, they can practice their short game at the putt-putt course or build sandcastles on the beach. Guests who are a little older can swim laps in the heated infinity pool, relax at the spa or take to the more challenging fairways of the 18-hole golf course instead. Later on, regroup and enjoy a family dinner at one of six restaurants before retiring to your spacious suite or villa. Though they rave about La Torretta's on-site amenities, some guests feel that the resort's standards are starting to slip, citing disorganized customer service staff and less-than-spotless rooms as issues. Visitors also gripe about the location: This resort sits just about 55 miles north of Houston, and many say there's not a whole lot to do in this part of Texas.

    The Tremont House, A Wyndham Grand Hotel
    Galveston, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2500 reviewsTripAdvisor (2500)
    Free WiFi

    According to its website, this central Galveston hotel "blends elements of timeless charm, sophistication and comfort." Guests seem to agree, saying that The Tremont House's modernized decor meshes well with the building's original Edwardian architecture. Recent visitors appreciated The Tremont House's boutique vibe, saying that although room sizes can run small, the high ceilings make up for it. Many attribute the Old World charm to the hotel's facilites, which include a relaxed piano bar and the casual Tremont Café, which serves up steaming plates of American fare. Homey touches – like Wolfgang Puck coffee and Numi tea in the guest rooms –also earn praise. However, if you're looking to truly kick back and relax, you'll have to leave the premises: The Tremont House does advertise a pool and a full-service spa, but those are located at the hotel's sister property, Hotel Galvez & Spa. However, both properties accept and offer Wyndham Rewards points thanks to their affiliation with the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand.
