Hotel Galvez is, without a doubt, one of the best options for lodging in Galveston.
The hotel has a rich history which give the entire property a lot of character. The lobby and comon areas evoke feelings of grandeur and of an era long gone.
The rooms are fine. Not great, not bad, just fine. The come with the standard amenities one would expect from a 3-4 star hotel.
Is the hotel haunted? That's for you to decide. I've stayed at the Galvez three times and only experienced weird occurrences one of those times. All the lights in my room kept turn on by themselves throughout the night. Was it electrical? Was it something else? One of the coworkers traveling with me did have an encounter that was more supernatural in nature when her bed sheets were pulled in the middle of the night.
