The Hotel Galvez and its staff were like stepping into a bygone era of elegance and luxury at reasonable prices. Galveston island has so many things to do, but the simple joy of hanging around the hotel was the most relaxing part of our trip. The Hotel Galvez is high on my want to return to places.

Our stay at the Galvez was wonderful. Beds comfortable and slept well. During day, excursions all over Galveston were fun and memorable.

The Hotel was beautiful and the staff very courteous and helpful. Loved sitting by the pool with all of the twists and turns in the landscaping. Great ocean view, but no balconies! Would definitely return to this spot!

This hotel was amazing! The service was impeccable, the location is right across from the beach, and it is very clean and fancy. Our only complaint was the size of the rooms. The pictures make them look much better. We stayed in the room with two queen beds. They were so close to the walls you could barely walk around them, and the room just felt cramped. Other than that, the hotel was perfect.

The rooms were teeny tiny, barely room to turn around- certainly not large enough for a family of four. For the price I would stay at the San Luis- the rooms are just larger and the the a/c seems to work better.
We ordered food at by the pool and it was fair- many times it was just cold and you could tell it had been sitting for a while.
The location to the pier is the only upside.
