We visited Galveston for the second time in August of 2012 and decided to try this hotel. While the architecture is stunning, we missed some amenities from more modern hotels. The rooms are very small with little room for storage. We could barely walk around our bed. The bathroom had very little water pressure and the walls were very thin.... More

We recently stayed(Aug 18 to 20) at Hotel Galvez for my husbands birthday. The decor of the hotel is absolutely beautiful. At times I felt like I was inside of the Titanic. You should know that the rooms are quite small, as this hotel is over a hundred years old. You would be wasting your time if you spent your... More

The hotel was very charming and the staff was very supportive. My only complaint was that the person who took the reservation did not properly represent the amenities included in the price. Fortunately the front desk was able to make adjustments.

One of the best preserved classic resort hotels in existence. It has survived economic hard times, hurricanes and just gets better. Ask for a tour by Robert and he will tell you passionately about his decades of experience with the hotel owners, guests, and evolution of this fine establishment. Ideal if you are taking a cruise as they or their... More

We had a great experience, the hotel and facilities are beautiful. The rooms are on the small side, but who goes to the beach to spend much time (other than sleeping) in the hotel room? Great staff, convenience to beach access, affordable, a gem in Galveston. Don't skip visiting the museum and let your children explore the hotel's history, they... More
