We didn't stay at the hotel but we did enjoy the Christmas buffet. It was a huge spread of breakfast items, salads, carved roasts, seafood, side dishes and desserts. I don't know if the regular Sunday buffet is anything close to this but it was a fabulous meal and surprisingly good for buffet food. Everyone in our group enjoyed the meal and the mimosas and we only left because we could not put one more morsel of food in our mouths (not even one thin mint!) The staff was friendly and helpful and we can't wait to go back during the year--maybe even to stay a few nights!

Thank you for the glowing review on our Christmas Day Brunch. And, yes our standard Sunday Brunch is just as impressive. Sunday Brunch at Hotel Galvez has made Open Table's Top 100 Brunches in the U.S. list and Southern Living Magazine's top ten brunches in Texas. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

We stayed at the sister property (Tremont) which I wrote a review on and only visited the Galvez to drop of our car before boarding our cruise, but all it takes is one short impression to know what this hotel is. As you drive towards it along the seawall road, it's sits majestically back from the road with beautifully manicured drives. As you enter, your drawn into a bygone era of opulence with a soaring ceiling, tall pillars, a piano playing and the wafting smells of mouthwatering Sunday brunch being enjoyed by a great many people.
We only sampled their service with valet and ship transfers but it was on a par with the Tremont House and I'd expect the rest of the experience would be in keeping with what we were able to see and experience in our two short trips here.
This place wasn't available when we booked but if we return to Galveston on our way to a future cruise, we'll be sure to book a night here.

We spent one night at the Galvez prior to leaving on a cruise. This is an old, classic hotel with a large lobby and an open area that has reception, the bar and the restaurant all together. Our room was not large and not modern by any means. The hotel opened over 100 years ago but our room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had a great view of the beach and the ocean. The staff was very friendly and helpful.. Certainly when I return to Galveston I will stay at t
