We stayed at The Galvez in late September. First of all, I love the hotel and we go there often for weekend getaways. The staff is wonderful and very accommodating and they are a great part of the reason we keep going back. The ambiance of the hotel is wonderful. It is a Wyndham Historic Hotel. They have refurbished all of the rooms, the pool area and the Spa and it looks great. We stayed in a room with a partial gulf view and we know they are smaller due to the hotel's age. No problem with that. But, with all the money they have spent you would think they would have changed out all the carpeting in the rooms. Our carpet was shabby...no other way to say it. It looked dirty and was worn. I expect more from them for the price we pay to stay there on the weekends. Other than that, I have nothing but good things to say about the hotel and, of course, this will not keep us from going back either!

The hotel is beautiful but we will be back because of the staff! Everyone chatted with us and made us feel so welcomed. Also, we got to stay in the ghost bride room 501. Didn't even reserve it, it was available when we checked in. What a nice birthday surprise! If you get a chance, stay in this room - nice view of the water and pleasure pier.
