Slated to open this year, Galveston’s Hotel Lucine brings a new airiness to the streetscape of the Texas island. In the oldest midcentury modern-designed building in the city and one of the last two of its kind still standing, the property showcases architecture that is rare to the area, says Keath Jacoby, hotel co-founder and head of marketing and branding.
It will have 61 guest rooms, three food and beverage components (The Fancy restaurant, The Den, and a rooftop bar), a central courtyard and pool, and private beach access.
Focusing on smaller group meetings and retreats, it will offer a 575-square-foot private space, The Lanai, for groups of 15-20, alongside additional space to rent at the rooftop bar and near the pool area. The private beach across the street from the hotel offers guests outdoor wellness activities like yoga on the beach.
“We’re just really excited to bring something different to the island,” Jacoby says.
