Galveston: 100-room Best Western Plus underwayGalveston: 100-room Best Western Plus underwayhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=19382015-01-22T08:14:00Z2015-01-20T00:00:00Z

GALVESTON - Crews have begun foundation work on what will be a five-story 100-room Best Western Plus at 8502 Seawall Blvd. on a parcel previously occupied by Reef Resort Apartments.

The Reef Resort Apartments, dating back to the 1970s, had been badly damaged by Hurricane Ike, which struck in 2008.

The Gandhi family, who is behind the hotel, initially considered renovating the 36-unit complex, but decided that would not be cost effective. The building was demolished nearly five years ago.

The Gandhi family already owns La Quinta Inn & Suites, 8710 Seawall; Holiday Inn Express, 8628 Seawall; and Econo Lodge 3924 Ave.
