We celebrated our Anniversary with a quick Galveston getaway. The Galvez was beautifully located on the Seawall, in close proximity to good restaurants and attractions. The Hotel Shuttle took us back and forth to The Strand. Driving around the Island was effortless. The staff was welcoming and accommodating. The rooms are smaller than modern day rooms as this hotel was... More

The hotel is really grand and as much due to its historical look and architecture. Allthough old the rooms are nice and clean, the bed gave me 3 good night of sleep. You should really cater yourself to an evening visit to the pool and jacuzzi and well as the swim-up bar, can't beat that. Good location and convenient and... More

The hotel has been restored beautifully. We enjoyed the pool and riding the complimentary bikes. This was my second visit this summer.

When we checked in recently, and for the first time ever in any hotel we have ever stayed in, we were advised that we could not bring unopened bottles of wine into our hotel room. We were informed that it was a violation of the TABC regulations. SO, I called the TABC and they have no such regulation that would... More

We had a one night stay here, and very much enjoyed it. The hotel is well maintained, and the bed was comfy. If you're a toiletries geek, they have a great assortment. The saltwater pool is clean and very pretty. We enjoyed having breakfast in their beautiful restaurant. We're definitely keeping this place on our "go to" list. Couple of... More

Overall we had a really good time at the Galvez. From a historical stand point, the hotel is amazing. We walked through the " museum" and saw all the old pictures and articles. The service was great and the food was even better. I didn't swim, due to fishing all day, but the pool looked refreshing. The view from our... More
