I got married at the Hotel Galvez back in August 2016, my Catering Manager was Gina she was very easy going and good to work with. I myself work in the hospitality industry coming from Hilton/Marriott hotels so I know how service standards should be. I did like that fact that Gina worked with me on some of my concerns...

Decided to go to Galveston for Thanksgiving week. There were 4 of us and a small dog. Overall a good trip however there were a few hitches. 1). I had requested a room away from the elevator as I am a light sleeper but to my surprise, they put me directly in front of the elevator. Second room was next...

We appreciate the insight on your recent stay at Hotel Galvez. We apologize for the inconvenience of our pet policy and it is important to us to also be considerate of other guests which is why we do not allow pets in the pubic areas. Thankfully, as you mentioned there are several pet-friendly patios in Galveston. Thank you for choosing...

We spent several days around Thanksgiving here. The service was outstanding- the whole operation was run like a well oiled machine! The hotel itself is gorgeous and the Thanksgiving Day buffet was excellent. We will definitely be back.

My family recently visited the property the week of Thanksgiving and we could not have been more pleased. The hotel itself is just beautiful, old craftmanship with some modern elements and very well maintained. The pool was heated and gorgeous to relax by or swim in at night. All of the staff was friendly and the food at the restaurant...

Grand old hotel. Having the doormen open the doors at the entrance just made it more unique. We enjoyed spending time in the lobby/bar playing cards. Be sure to visit their history hall in the basement.

The covered, multistory car park is across the street. We had dinner in the restaurant which was also very good. The ambience of the lobby reflects the 'old world' nature of the property. It is...

Great hotel! The hotel looks as new as the day is was built in 1911. We love staying a historic hotels such as this. Great place to stay before a cruise since you can park at the hotel and take the free shuttle to the ships. We saved $90 on the parking at the ships alone.
