Beautiful hotel, and the service is world class! Most outgoing and friendly staff we have encountered (anywhere). Room was comfortable, lobby and grounds spectacular. We usually just have brunch here (a separate review), but needed a place that was pet friendly. As long as your pet is small, it's a great place to stay (I couldn't stay when I had... More

Beautiful historic hotel right across the street from the seawall. Really enjoyed the hotel and its location. Double room with semi view had a nice side view of the ocean. Pool, hot tub, swim up bar, and gym were great.

We were looking forward to a great mom’s getaway weekend. We booked a room for about $450 a night. Although this hotel is beautiful, with great landscaping and wonderful pool area we experienced bad customer service from the beginning. At check-in we asked for a different room as our view consisted of a bad part of Galveston neighborhood and there... More

Please accept our sincere apologies regarding the issues that you mentioned during your stay. It does appear that you booked a city view room versus a Gulf view room which would explain the rate increase but we are glad that a manager was able to make that room change. And, we appreciate you bringing the other service issues to our... More

We never received the breakfast and could not get ahold of anyone at food services to assist. The hotel did comp us $50, but for as much money as we paid to stay... More

Yes this is an old hotel that has gone thru some renovations since I was last here 4 yrs ago. Yes the elevators are old and slow. Yes the King room is smallish. But the charm and friendliness of the staff are worth everything. We just returned from a very crowded Easter weekend crowd in Galveston and the Galvez was... More
