Moody Gardens Hotel Spa & Convention Center
Ranked #1 of 51 Hotels in Galveston
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 January 2012

I went to Moody Gardens for a business conference and stayed in the hotel as well. The business accommodations were excellent - conference rooms were spacious, food provided was excellent. As for the hotel, no complaints there either. The rooms were slightly dated, but everything was in working order and room had excellent amenities (robes, toiletries, Keurig coffee machine). I didn't get out on the grounds much, but it would definitely be a place I would recommend to families with the aquarium, rainforest, science expo and Schlitterbahn next door.

A very nice resort close but not right on the gulf. An aquarium on the grounds & waterpark next door make it a family destination. A convention was here and the one bar was understaffed to handle the large crowd. Resort is very spread out so a lot of walking.

I have quite a history with this hotel having put on company Christmas parties there for several years in a row. The corporate sales staff is wonderful to work with (especially Kim Connor). My son and his new wife chose Moody Gardens for their wedding ceremony and their reception. It was a small affair with only 30 guests, but we were treated beautifully and were given first class accomodations for extremely reasonable rates and the rate included late check-out for every wedding guest, since the wedding was a daytime wedding and everyone left afterward. So, none of the rooms were vacated until 3pm or later. The hotel was very cooperative with us on that front.

But, the spa.....aaahhhh. Honestly, as a certified spa junkie, I have to say this spa is in my top two in the world. Their relaxation room...well...I would check in there and stay rather than their normal hotel rooms. If you make it to the Gardens...don't miss the spa here.

After having stayed at this hotel no less than 10 times over the past few years, this time I ended up in a jacuzzi suite. I didn't even know they existed. But, I certainly enjoyed relaxing in my private jacuzzi before bed...alone. Even alone it was very nice! The bride and groom had a suite on the 9th floor which was perfect for getting ready before the ceremony..and for pictures. Really nice.

Room Tip: ask for a jacuzzi suite!

We got a living social deal (2 night room, 2 day unlimited attraction tickets for Moody Gardens) so we went for the weekend. It was a little hard to find at first, we ended up in front of the convention center, then the ballroom, but we made it after just a bit. The front desk was pretty nice (with one exception) and the bellhops were very nice. There were plenty of elevators, we never had to wait for one. It was a comfortable room, 2 queens, fridge, kerug coffee maker, regular stuff. We did not have a microwave, but there was a public one in the laundry area that we could use. The hot water and the water pressure were really good, just be careful with little ones. Room service staff was very nice, but the food was average for price. We thought the fruit plate was a good deal, though! Lots of variety and sorbet. Location is great, you just walk to the pyramids and then back to the room when you want. All in all, a very nice weekend vacation.

Hotel is very nice. Staff is very friendly and polite. The pool is beautiful Rooms have a small frig and a microwave. The towels are wonderful big lucious oversized white cotton. Rooms have two nice robes and the bed was very comfortable. We also had a Keurig coffeepot in the room with the Keurig Kcups. Very Nice. We were in room 403 and it had a balcony overlooking the pool with table and two chairs. We had breakfast on the balcony in January. Galveston is looking great. the water park at Moody looked wonderful but we did not get to try it out in January. Hotel is 3/4 mile from beach so we drove to beach and had a wonderful walk.

We spent our 33rd wedding anniversary at the hotel while attending the Festival of Lights. The Hotel and the Terrace Restaurant were wonderful. We got the package with the Festival of Lights and had a great time walking and looking at all the lights, listening to the music and sounds of Christmas and the roasting of Smores around an open fire pit was a great end to a wonderful evening. When I requested a room with a roll-in shower they did not hesitate to make sure that I was accommodated. We plan on going back to the hotel again this Spring and Summer to enjoy the pyramids and many activities in Galveston.
