Looking for airport hotels in Galveston, TX? While there’s a public airport on the island, the commercial airport serving the Galveston area is the Houston Intercontinental Airport. Thanks to the number of people with cruises departing from the Port of Galveston, there are transportation services between the Houston Airport and the Gulf Coast’s historic resort town. So if it's business that brings you to Galveston (you lucky duck!), be sure to make time for a stroll through the Strand Historic District or grab a drink along the Galveston Seawall before returning to your airport accommodations.
