5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Stayed at the Galvez for the third time. Yes, rooms may be smaller than new hotels; however, the ambience and atmosphere are much more pleasant and inviting than modern boxes. All staff were polite, responsive, and helpful. The only shortcomings were drinks. Those served at the pool were lacking. Also, the new furniture in the lobby lacks the traditional style we are accustomed to finding at the Galvez. But, we will return.

Stayed July 2014, traveled with family

This hotel is a must at least once! I roamed the hotel just taking in the history.
Room was very large, clean, and comfortable.
Very helpful and friendly staff.
With that being said - very pricey. Including meals and drinks.
