Summer vacation season is beginning to wind down, but things are still hopping at the Galvez. Lots of families and children, and noise. The hallways are loud, but the rooms are relatively quiet. Galvez is a very classy hotel, with lots of history and charm.

We stayed at the Hotel Galvez for two nights for a quick weekend getaway based on a prior great stay. That being said, based on this most recent stay, I don’t think we would come back. It was definitely not a 4* experience. CONS: Repetitive Lack of Towels at Pool, Rude Management, Cobwebs in Room, Bed Short Sheeted, No Clothing... More

My wife and I came down from Houston after we were lucky to have someone take our kids. Hotel and pool did not disappoint. Room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Pool was a great and the drinks at the bar flowed freely. My wife also headed to the spa while I went fishing. I think she chose poorly, but she... More

Beautiful hotel inside and out. Great location. Walking distance to the Pleasure Pier is about 5 minutes and Murdochs is a 2 minute walk. Very easy to drive to the port for the cruise ships. Staff at the resort is very professional and accommodating. We parked in the garage and were given a key to go in and out until... More

Great food, great view, great ambience! The staff at Hotel Galvez is phenomenal. Miguel always provides first class service and possesses a warm and friendly demeanor. The wonderful view of the pool and the ocean are icing on the cake.

Historic character of hotel is awesome! Wonderful hotel with friendly staff, beautiful lobby, outstanding bar with live music in evening, and oasis pool area. Rooms were more than adequate and clean! We had a full gulf view that was so nice! Don't let other reviewers mislead you into thinking the rooms are too small. More than adequate based on the... More

The Hotel Galvez is a beautiful, historic hotel with lovely architecture and a storied history. I went with high expectations, because of that history and many of their claims. But I was very disappointed. It' isn't a bad hotel, but it isn't a great one, either. Quite frankly, I've seen better organization and more dedicated staff in mid-tier hotels. For... More

We had gotten a good price to stay on a Sunday night so we booked it even though we were just passing through the area. What a beautiful hotel! Such a piece of history. Walking into the lobby brings you back in time. We stayed on the spa floor with a oceanfront room. Rooms are on the small side. Bathroom... More
