You need to go see Ms. Lisa at the bar. She will make your visit enjoyable with her happiness she bestows upon everyone. The rooms are nice with a lot of history in the building itself. The hotel is also conveniently located directly across from a jetty if you're looking to do little fishing.

Our family spent a few days at the coast and enjoyed it immensely. The staff is wonderful and the hotel is inviting. If you are staying with your family, consider a larger room - this is a historic hotel so the rooms are a bit smaller than today's newer hotels. Location is awesome!

We enjoyed our stay at the Galvez...the feel is classic and classy...especially in the lobby for music and a nightcap! The service was helpful and professional. Our only disappointment was the swim up bar...short on wait staff and bartenders seemed rushed and the drinks were not up to par.

Hotel staff were great, they were all friendly and gave great service. Poll was awesome with the swim up bar and all the room service food we had was excellent. Only downside keeping getting 5 stars was the room size. It was very small and there were no drawers for clothes, only the closet. Other than that, we really enjoyed... More

Nanette is certainly a great asset to Hotel Galvez. She is a great waitress, efficient and friendly. Nanette made our stay most memorable. The hospitaliy is what places this hotel above the rest. Pools, restaurant, piano bar, were truly enjoyable. The Sunday brunch was so amazing. Again we asked to be seated in Nanette's area. She as always treated attentively... More

Beautiful hotel built in 1911. Lots of charm with great pool area. Lobby furniture in center of the lobby doesn't seem to go with the hotels overall ambience. Great place for families/couples!
