We stayed at the Galvez at both ends of our Caribbean cruise. It sits on the seawall and has fantastic views of the water from about half of its rooms. Even the back side has great views of the town. The price was quite reasonable for the quality and service. It is obvious that the management and staff pay attention... More

Stayed at Hotel Galvez for the first time for a conference, and it was one of the best hotels I've stayed in. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the facilities were beautiful. I would definitely consider returning with my family.

It is possible to be helpful without being gracious, but not the other way around. We found both at the Hotel Galvez recently. First, let me say that I am a difficult customer. I have acute insomnia and a Zero tolerance of "white noise", such as roads, machines, HVAC, etc. The front desk was very helpful in finding the room... More

A weekend stay at the Hotel Galvez was a wonderful experience. We decided on the hotel based on its unique history. We were glad we did. The hotel is beautiful. Our room (332) was quite spacious and had a nice Gulf view. The service was excellent: I left my wallet in the lobby and the staff quickly found it and... More

Stay away from elevators. Inquire about potential high school cheerleader convention. Be accused of smoking in a non smoking room. Get so insulted, check out. What a memorable 55 birthday. I mean they happen all the time. GREAT SPA - stay some place else.

Just stopped in to walk around the historic hotel. Beautiful inside and out. Gorgeous pool area. Be sure to go down to the Hall of History. Great information about the hotel, island and characters in the 1900's. We joined a tour led by an elderly employee who gave added color with his oral history. Well worth a half hour.

The difference between a super bowl winning NFL team and one that is looking for a new coach is attention to detail. This place knows attention to detail! Minor point, but they know how to do poached eggs properly for the eggs benedict. Room service was fast! The people have such a wonderful attitude! Genuine smiles! In particular, Bobby at... More
