We were treated like royalty throughout our entire staying. There is such a difference between staying at a hotel and vacationing at a LUXURY RESORT. Given the opportunity, one really MUST INDULGE, even if only occasionally. The facility and the staff were exceptional on all levels. I am looking forward to our next visit already. I hated to leave.

Stayed one night in a basic room, nothing fancy. Had to ask for another blanket - the extra set in the closet was dirty, including the bag it was in. One of the pillowcases on the bed was dirty. Shower curtain liner was stained (not sure, looked a little like hair dye?). I suppose I could have kept calling down... More

Stayed in the Roosevelt Suite with 7 children comfortably. They made the room available to us early. Parking was really easy and close to the beach. If you like historic hotels you should have no problem paying WAY to much for a room on Galveston. I myself was mostly just concerned with keeping my children off of everything, NOT a... More

Thank you for staying at Hotel Galvez during your large family trip which included seven children. You may also consider our sister hotel, Harbor House Hotel & Marina at Pier 21. The rooms are large and the hotel offers a complimentary Continental breakfast. While it doesn't offer a pool onsite, you have access to the Galvez pool and are within... More

Beautiful Historic Hotel. Husband and I came to relax and celebrate our 35 years of wedded bliss. We own a business and to get away for a week is hard. Jenny Reo the hostess at the Galvez dining room made us feel like family and Lauren Conrad the guest services es manager made sure our full gulf view room was... More

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
