My family and I stayed at the Hotel Galvez, for two nights, in December 2014. We had a total of four rooms, all located on the second floor. While the hotel was lovely architecturally, had a gracious lobby, attractive swimming pool area and an attentive and courteous staff,the guest rooms left much to be desired. All four of the rooms...

At the entry of the property you are transplanted into splendor. Revel in the history and grand taste. The rooms utilized space well considering the original construction period. The Sunday Brunch is something that is not to be missed. What a great time of year to play in Dickens on the Strand. Awesome time. Romance, Fun, and Food.

This past Thanksgiving (2014) we decided to hold our family retreat at the Galvez in Galveston. We've stayed at the Galvez before, but it was some time ago. We found to have undergone considerable upgrades and the experience to be very rewarding. The Thanksgiving buffet was outstanding. We were seated promptly at our scheduled time, the selection of food was... More

We stayed at the Hotel Galvez recently and were very disappointed. The rooms weren't all that special, the staff lacked customer service skills and the price was ridiculous for what you got. We won't return.

We had something in mind for this Thanksgiving since we didn't have any kids or families at home. A romantic get-away to historic Galveston. Not cooking was my husband's idea of a gift for me. My thanks to him was to book a room at the beautiful and classic Hotel Galvez. The elegance of the place is without parallel. Timeless... More

This is the primo hotel on Galveston Island. Others pose to be but can't touch the Galvez for style and history. The hotel has a patina that can not be duplicated with flash or bling. Most importantly, it is evident that everyone that works here loves their job. Even if you can't stay here for the night, have a drink... More

The Galvez Hotel & Spa is the Queen on the Texas Gulf Coast. It has a rich history of people who have graced its different venues and suites, and for good reason. Built the same year as the Titanic, this classic structure has endured the test of time from hurricanes to fires to economic woes, and still has a beauty... More
