Eh, Houston traffic is really only bad during the week. We live in the suburbs north of houston (right by Bush airport) and are just driving in that morning. It takes about 90 mins, so even with traffic, leave 2-3 hours and you shouldn't have a problem. It's Houston, not Los Angeles (where we used to live and there was traffic 24/7.) Just my two cents.

Can I ask who you booked with?

Is there shuttle service from the airport to the Hotel Galvez? If you don't hire a town car or rent a car, what other ways are there to get to the Galveston area? Are there Super Shuttle vans waiting at the airport to take you there?

We also rented one way from Enterprise. Threre was not a shuttle to the port. We had to call a cab. The driver was super slow to increase our rate. Be aware. We knew the way and he definitely took the long way.
