Default hotel with covered parking in Galveston?

We may drive to our next Voyager cruise, but have a new vehicle and want to leave it in covered parking. I was told my a fellow cruiser last month that Moody Gardens has underground, covered parking and a shuttle to the port, but Moody Gardens web site is showing no rooms available for my dates. Does anyone know of another hotel that offers free covered parking for cruise guests?

Default Covered parking...

Have you checked the Galvez Hotel? Seems I remember someone saying they offered covered parking. Also check www.galveston.com and see if covered parking is noted for any of the lodging they list.

You may try the San Luis Resort they have a parking garage. This hotel is on the pricy side. http://www.sanluisresort.com. I don’t know if they do cruise transfers.

Also try La Quinta Inn & Suites Galveston 8710 Seawall Blvd Galveston, TX 77554. I know they have a shuttle from there to the pier and back. You can park under the building but it is tight.

Finally the Port of Galveston has some covered parking http://www.portofgalveston.com/cruiseinformation/parking.shtml

Default Hotel Galvez

We did stay at the Galvez in Jan 07 for our Princess Cruise and
at that time they included free cruise parking in a covered
parking garage.

Smile The Tremont

If you stay at the Tremont, you get to park at the Galvez. The Tremont is in the strand area and very nice!

The thing about covered parking at hotels is that it is usually for guest currently staying there. Usually, you have to move your vehicle to a specific lot for cruise parking when you check out to catch your ship. So just because a hotel has covered parking, that does not automatically mean you can leave your under cover unless you make special arrangements.

Tremont & The Galvez have covered parking for the cruisers...We have used it and so have many of our friends. I think all they have is covered parking

Last resort Im sure, but EZCruise will put a cover over your car for an extra $10.
