Beautiful view of the Gulf. Charming historic hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Valet parking not necessary and ridiculously expensive. Will stay here again. The room was sized right and steam shower was a dream. Trash was left in the room behind the bedside table but housekeeping staff promptly removed it. Beds comfortable.

Fresh seafood, prime rib,endless supplies of fresh fruit with never empty mimosas. Includes many lunch items, as well as, breakfast items. After filling up on the prime rib, peeled & eat shrimp, lox & bagels and... More

I stayed here for a conference in February this year. I have to stay that it is a beautiful old hotel, which is very impressive from the outside and overlooks the Gulf! My bedroom was on the second floor and whilst it was not that spacious, it was modern, quiet and comfortable. The staff were great during the time that... More

This is a beautiful hotel with lots of character and class. We enjoyed every minute we spent there. The rooms are small, but that is to be expected for a hotel this age. It had everything we needed! The pictures do not do it justice, this place is amazing. Pool side was stunning, and the pool/hot tub were very inviting.... More

I stayed at the Galvez for about 3 weeks in June, 2014 on business. The hotel is well maintained, beautiful decor, and the staff were quite helpful. The food in the restaurant is expensive, but is tasty, and the waitstaff were all working very hard to keep everyone satisfied. The rooms themselves are small, but this is a very old... More

While the actual rooms are nothing special, this hotel certainly is. Everything about this place exudes charm and service. The staff is friendly and they all have so much personality (Big shout out to Lisa the bartender). The hotel and the lobby are historic and beautiful with old charm and grace but blended with updates like the gorgeous newer swimming... More

We had NO ROOM SERVICE this past weekend! We arrived on Friday afternoon; we asked for the room to be cleaned on Saturday -- my husband told housekeeping in the hallway to make sure the room was cleaned and to place fresh towels in the bathroom. Got back to the room at 1:00 a.m. only to find that they had... More

We stayed here 3 nights before our cruise as part of our honeymoon. We stayed on the haunted 5th floor...lets say no more about that. In our room was a complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolate strawberrys. We very much appreciated this. Clean room, friendly staff and lovely pool area. Will definately be back in the near future.

I wondered why while booking a reservation it was so hard to find a room that properly accommodates a family of three (two adults and a toddler), and while the only room that fit the bill was one that offered "two double beds." Two double beds is weird. How on earth do you situate yourselves with that type of bedding... More
