“Family Wedding Weekend”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend celebrating a family wedding. The reception venue was at Hotel Galvez so it only made sense to stay at the hotel. I was an attendant in the wedding and was very impressed in the attention that was not only given to the wedding party but to all of the guests staying in the hotel. We have a very large family and the amenities were fantastic as all members had numerous options on where they could relax and visit. The restaurant was extremely accommodating every morning as a group of 16+ were able to enjoy breakfast together each morning. As an attendant in the wedding party I had planned ahead and scheduled an appointment with the Spa for makeup application. The Spa staff were experienced and professional. My makeup looked wonderful! Thank you to Hotel Galvez for a fabulous weekend to celebrate a family wedding.

We stayed at the Galvez Hotel in Galveston and had a short but pleasant stay with our 6 month old baby.

We experienced a couple of details though. There was a blood like stain on one of the beds comforters and the omelet chef wasn't happy when we asked him to cook a runny omelet a little further

I wish I could find fault with my stay, but alas I cannot. Staff is always friendly, helpful and courteous. Rooms clean and comfy. Restaurant is also a hidden little gem.

Wonderful property. I always like staying here. Thanks.

The hotel was great and the staff was very friendly! The pool area was congested when we went a couple of times, but we still had fun!

Recommend this hotel. The front desk worked hard to make sure we had two connecting rooms for a family of five. The beds were great, the rooms the right size and the employees did everything to make us feel welcome and cared for. The public space is great and the concierge had enough spook in the ghost sightings to keep the kids alert but not freaked. The hotel is a five minute walk to the new Pleasure Pier which was good late afternoon/evening family time one day. The beach across the road has chairs and umbrella hire (its Galveston so the water and sand are more brown than blue and white but the kids didn't care), and then the pool area back at the hotel is just great with excellent service. Breakfast buffet was good with food kept fresh and in room dining was on time and hot. Will stay again.

excellent experience. Highly recommend for those that remember what hotels were once like. Rooms are somewhat small but adequate for two people.
