This was our first stay at this wonderful hotel. My nine year old thought she was in a castle! The lobby is awesome, the service is wonderful. We had breakfast in the cafe every day. Both my 15 year old and 9 year old loved the pool which was also wonderful. My husband and I enjoyed a drink at the... More

I visited Galveston for the first time last week and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the city. The Galvez was pretty booked so the only room I could get was a regular room with an ocean view. The hotel itself is quite lovely. Very impressive upon drive up and the staff was very friendly. But, I paid... More

The room was great but the cost of food at the grill.I thought was to pricey for me. It seems you could have some type of breakfast area that was a reasonable priced venue

Excellent hotel, but it's gettting a bit rough around the edges. Compared to historic properties such as The Brown, Grand Hotel, etc the Gálvez is a bit rough around the edges cosmetically.

Had one night here on a tour of Texas. Great service, room very large and the best bed I've ever slept in. Valet charge for car was reasonable and check in very easy indeed Great location, just far enough out to be quiet and not far to walk to be in. Very palatial surroundings and price was very reasonable. Will... More

This is our 2nd stay at the Hotel Galvez. We were pleased to see that the hotel has been thoroughly renovated since our 1st visit. We had a beautifully appointed corner room on the 5th floor with a fantastic ocean view on two sides. I have severe back problems, but slept comfortably on the plush King-size bed. As part of...

Here celebrating our friends marriage. Great friends and family. The staff here is out of this world. Ask for room 802. It's the best. BTW the valet guys are hardworking guys. We will never stay anywhere in Galveston but here.

I enjoyed the hotel very much. The King room is a bit small. However I liked that the room had a vanity area outside of the bathroom. The plumbing wasn't the best as the water stood in the tub while taking showers and took a little while to drain after the water was turned off. The staff were very friendly.... More
