I am quite satisfy with the stay at the Hotel Galvez. The close distance to walk the seawall is a great addition.

So sad. Have stayed there several times but will not return. For $400/nt we received children and adults slamming doors, running down halls till one in the morning and a broken air conditioner and a broken toilet. Had to call security three times due to noise issues by famiies in the cheaper rooms. Doors are completely hollow so all noise travels. Walls are thin and having a huge ugly oyster shell painting hanging on the wall that lookslike E.T. Ruins the ambience of what used to be gracious rooms. The newly redecorated lobby and restaurant looks like Luby's cafeteria. Galvez has gone to the dogs.

I'm very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at the hotel. During the summer months, the hotel is very popular for families and we ask that all our guests be considerate. We are glad that you called security and we hope that they were helpful. While you may not appreciate the new decor in the restaurant, we are pleased with the new ambiance and menu and we have gotten positive feedback. We hope that you will give us another try during a quieter time of year.
