Harbor House Hotel and Marina

Only one hotel in Galveston overlooks the island’s working port and that is Harbor House Hotel and Marina at Pier 21. Harbor House sits on the site of an early Galveston Steamship Terminal and provides a unique vantage point for watching the activity of a working port. Harbor House is the preferred hotel cruise ship passengers seeking pre- and post- cruise excursions on the island. In addition, this hotel is within walking distance to a wide array of attractions and nearby shops and restaurants. Nine boat slips, located adjacent to the hotel, welcome guests to sail in for a stay and enjoy all the Pier 21 and the nearby Strand District has to offer.


The 42-room hotel completed a $1.7 million renovation in February 2014 giving rooms a bold new look and stunning appointments. The hotel’s guest rooms now offer an industrial motif, balanced with organic warmth created by all new lighting, flooring, furniture, bedding and bathrooms.

Harbor House Hotel and Marina, located at Pier 21, offers cruise guests the option to leave their cars during their cruise at the hotel parking lot for a cost of $12/night. Harbor House is walking distance to the cruise ship terminal.
