“Great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The hotel had a great location directly across the street from the beach! Great hotel accommodations however the bathroom was extremely small. Overall we enjoyed our stay and the amenties the hotel provides. We would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Pick an ocean view room.

Stayed at Hotel Galvez in July 2013. Yes, the rooms are smaller than average, but the layout and angles of our room enabled our family of 4 (which included 2 toddlers) to manage comfortably. The room had a king bed and two windows showing views of the water. The hotel is beautiful and every staff member smiled and exchanged pleasantries. Check out the outdoor pool and hot tub. Even had dinner at the on-site restaurant; the prices are reasonable, the food was tasty, and the kids loved Ms. Nannette.

This hotel is clean and beautifully decorated yet embraces families. We never felt out of place.

Free parking is behind the hotel. The beach area directly across from the hotel isn't the best (that area had tons of seaweed), but the pool and hot tub more than make up for the poor beach conditions.

Room Tip: Room 200 is a corner room, away from the elevators, and has two windows.

We decided to escape for four days to get a bit of R&R. I purchased a great internet rate on a city facing room. Upon arrival I did not like the room I was assigned and asked the staff if there was anything a little bigger. The hotel promptly put us in a much nicer room - facing the ocean! The staff were all pleasant, helpful and polite. The food and drinks were great, service was great. Especially the restaurant staff, hotel trainees from the Philippines who had the biggest smiles! We did a couples massage at the Spa - which was heavenly!! Thank you Genesis! Everything about our stay was perfect! I highly recommend the Galvez.

Room Tip: We had a room near the elevator - but never heard a sound. The plus about this was that we were rig...

Stayed there over 4th of July. Rooms are small but comfortable. You dont go to Galveston for the room anyway. Very cool lobby, good breakfast. Plenty of offsite parking or valet. Beautiful lawns in front of hotel, walking distance ot many attractions. Would stay here again.
