“Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Excellent stay! Love the valet parking!
Rooms are always quiet. I liked the pool area. It is a very nice place to bring family or to just stay by yourself.

Need to get room service more attentive to making sure they deliver right ordet to right room. Need to get room service to check trays for all items.
Would be nice if there were more sound insulation between rooms--conversations and TV from next room was bothersome.
But, overall, it is a pleasant place to stay. Staff very willing to take care of mistakes.

I loved the hotel. The rooms were a big small to accommodate my two friends and I. I was expecting queen size beds. I also understand that it is a historic hotel and larger beds would not fit. The shower curtain is awful. It made taking a shower very difficult. Please consider replacement of the shower curtain with one that has magnets to keep it from wrapping around a person during a shower.

The hotel is very nice but our favorite part of our stay was the great omellettes that Jerry made us for the breakfast buffet. He was very friendly and cheerful and made great omellettes.

It was a good location and the service was great. The elevators had to be wiped down after the guest used them often. The mirrors in the elevator should always be cleaned. Some guest do not demonstrate their best behavior when it comes to manners.

Despite a mix-up in our accomodations, our stay was great. I called both the main reservation line and the front desk to see they had any 2 bed suites before I placed my reservation. I was told by both that the king, 2-room suite had two beds. I was contacted by a manager about an hour before our arrival to see if we needed any reservations & I found that the room did not have 2 beds She was able to give us 2 rooms for the same price and even had a bottle of wine & a cheese/fruit plate in our room along with an apology note for the inconvenience.

The spa and spa staff were wonderful. The beds & hotel accomodations were great. We did not dine onsite, but the concierge was extremely helpful in recommending other restaurants and activities. Being an old hotel, the lack of a service elevator made the stairs faster, since it was often used by hotel staff.

We had not been to Galveston, which has had a tough recovery from hurricane Ike. From what we have heard, it appears that things are starting to come to life and businesses are begining to build back up. Lots of new construction. It is kind of a "Redneck Riviera", but the Hotel Galvez made it a much more upscale experience.
