My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Galvez for two nights after a cruise. It is a beautiful hotel. The hotel had lovely holiday decorations. We arrived early, and were called when our room was ready. We stayed in a beautiful corner room with a gulf view. The first evening we had dinner in the restaurant downstairs. I enjoyed an amazing massage at the spa. Michelle was a wonderful therapist. The relaxation room there really adds to the entire experience. Later that evening We enjoyed talking to the bartender Ben. The manager on duty, Shane, was also so friendly. We really felt so welcomed at this hotel. Although it was too cold to use the pool, we would love to return someday.

Room Tip: We booked through Galveston.com and got a great rate!

I stayed in this hotel for one night for the Hustle Santa Galveston. The imposing facade caught my eye while driving around. I heard this is the oldest hotel, so forget about revolving or automatic doors. When it gets very crowded and there is no door attendant, you have to deal with your luggages and making sure to hold that door for the person behind you or in front of you. There's only two elevators. There is self-parking which is across the stree( right side) when you're facing the ocean. It is safe and you use your key to get access. A pianist and a full bar provides good company as well. The room seems smaller though. This is a Wyndham hotel but I didn't get that Wyndham experience :/. The best part of my stay is the Sunday brunch. Great selections and free champagne.

Room Tip: Request for a room far from the elevator. This is a pet friendly hotel btw.

Wonderful hotel, the decor is just like being transported back in time. Great location on the sea front, some restaurants within walking distance which is a plus. Coupe of very minor drawbacks, parking is in a multi-storey lot across the road. It is the hotels lot and room key accessible but you do have to cross the road. Other minor one is the bathrooms. Being such an old hotel, they are pretty small and basic compared to how wonderful the rest of the hotel is, but neither are that bigger deal overall when considering all the other great aspects.

We are thrilled that you had a "just magical" stay at Hotel Galvez & Spa. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the hotel and the location. Please note that guests also have the option of valet parking rather than self-parking in the lot across the street. We hope to see you again soon.

Beautiful lobby and great curb appeal. Pool area looks nice. Overnight front desk not the most friendly. It's a great location in the Gulf and a block from the Pleasure Pier.

When renovations are done this will be the place to be. Right now it's only great if you leave your room from 8am to 8pm while they're using jackhammers and drills to keep you alert. I spent 4 days in Houston and 4 days here expecting my houston portion would be fast paced and my Galvez portion would be relaxing. It was the opposite. Royal Sonesta in Houston (which was also under construction) insulated guests from the disruptions. At the Galvez it's front and center.

Try to get a high floor with Gulf view... Maybe that'll help a little.

Please accept our sincere apologies regarding the noise from the construction on our rear entrance. The good news is that we are done with the jackhammers and work is underway to improve the restaurant entrance located on Bernardo de Galvez Avenue. While we still encourage hotel guests to use our grand entrance on the beachfront, this rear entrance is convenient for our Galvez Bar & Grill customers who opt to self park in the adjacent lot.
