A very different kind of hotel for Galveston, the Harbor House is built on a pier and overlooks the harbor instead of a beach. This hotel has an excellent location, near the Strand District and next to a few restaurants and museums that have taken over the neighboring piers. The architecture and exterior design are different as well. Rooms are large and well appointed in a contemporary style without a lot of clutter. Bleached wood floors, Berber carpets, and exposed wood and steel superstructure give it a feel unlike other hotels. There are nine marina slips should you come with your boat. All rooms come with fridge, microwave, and free Wi-Fi. Guests here have signing privileges at the nearby sister property on the Strand, the Tremont House.
