The hotel was beautiful and the food was very good. Close to a nice beach area. They allowed us to bring our dog which was great. The room was a little small. Will go back again in the future.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Recently stayed at the hotel for a family wedding. The rooms were nice, but interestingly, the 3 king bed rooms I booked (all at the same special price) were all quite different. One was a corner room and quite large. The second was a little larger than standard (two windows) and the third was tiny. I'm sure that the age of the hotel has a lot to do with it. I'm not sure how to ensure you get one of the bigger rooms unless you ask for a corner.
The lobby is nice with a beautiful view of the Gulf. There is a decent beach across the street. The restaurant was a little expensive but the food was quite good. The wedding reception food was excellent but the size of the "ballroom" is pretty small. On the top floor, there are several small suites and a common area which worked very well for the family and wedding party to meet up between events. All-in-all, a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room--try to stay away from the elevators.

Thank you for your comments on your stay at Hotel Galvez & Spa. Well, as you mentioned some historic hotels have some challenges when compared to new construction. If you can imagine, when the hotel opened in 1911 it had 275 rooms and now it has 224. Guests can always request a corner room and our staff will do their best to accommodate. We hope that our historic ambiance made up for the issues that you mentioned. Thanks again and we hope that you stay with us again.

The Hotel Galvez is an old-style Texas hotel with the proper amenities and contemporary accessories. I really enjoyed the museum that explained the history of Galveston. Many of Galveston's watering holes and shops are within walking distance of the hotel. The beach is great and nearby.

Thank you for the kind review on your stay at Hotel Galvez & Spa. And, thank you for mentioning the Hall of History. We added that exhibit as part of our centennial and it's been a great hit. Please stay with us again soon.
