I booked this hotel because of the pool, only to find out upon our arrival that it is closed for remodeling. We were told the night we checked in the pool would be open by the next day. 24 hours later it is still closed. Staff gave us a free night after my husband complained, but I would NOT have... More

Disappointed best describes us. We hadn't stayed at the Galvez for a number of years following our move to Florida. We missed the wonderful restaurant that used to be off the lobby, we missed the warm greetings of the staff which we used to get, we felt our cramped room/bath (city view) was terribly overpriced.

Very nice rooms and friendly staff. Good food at the restaurant. attended a meeting at this hotel for four days. Parking is across the street in a secured garage. There is a spa on property which i did not use due to time. This is a historic hotel updated to todays standards and very nice.

Rooms were clean with a nice view. Heated pool outside. Nice bar. Great customer service. Noon check out. However, it was pricey and there wasn't even a complimentary breakfast the following day.

Loved Malcolm at check-in and through out our stay. Hotel was nice, close to everything. The breakfast buffet was good and the service was great! Our problem was the room never got cold, too much noise from the neighbors. We did not get as much rest as we would have liked to for our week-end get away to relax. We... More

Hotel and service were lovely. Dinner service by Miguel was excellent, however food quality was only medium, especially for the price. Breakfast food quality was a little better.
