5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Stayed one night pre-cruise in late October; can't comment on price as it was booked through the cruise line. To address some issues in other reviews: we had a room with two double beds (2 adults, 4 yr old). While queen sized would have been nice, the beds were sufficient and there was plenty of extra room. I think there was actually more space than usual between the beds and tv, for example. Bathroom was adequate in size, and nicely styled. Our room overlooked the hotel front and Gulf, and we had the added bonus of watching a wedding take place. Very nice pool, beautiful grounds and lobby. Also, the room was clean and modern. Wifi worked well, staff was outstanding. We didn't have a car, so I can't comment on valet parking, but others I talked to were satisfied with it. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Oh, one more thing about the wedding: The wedding party was booked on our floor and I was expecting a loud night. While others have complained about hearing outside noises, either the wedding party was extremely subdued, or the sound levels were fine.

We loved our stay at the Galvez. All the romance of an old hotel with nice amenities, friendly service, location convenient to everything you come to Galveston for. We figured out fast we didn't need valet service and even though the room was small it was spotless and quiet. Highly recommend!
