It would be a good idea to fill the holes as some of them may allow moisture to go all the way through the stone. You could also seal it with Prosoco Deep Sheen. It is a breathable solvenated acrylic and I have seen it hold up pretty well in showers before. I generally recommend polishing followed by impregnators though.

Hi Partners,
I am looking at a vertical Travertine shower wall that has that "old world" look with many holes and a honed/ satin finish (not really shiny).  It looks like the majority of travertine that is out of the box.  The house has travertine floors (different tile than the shower vertical walls) everywhere and the finish very shiny and I even saw unused floor tiles and they had a coating on them that actually looked like "liquid plastic" . 
My question is, does anyone know of a topical sealer that I can use on a vertical travertine shower wall that would be easy to use and have a shiny appearance?  Of course, I would thoroughly clean the walls prior to applying the sealer. 


Thank You,
