Just stayed at galaxy for the second time, the first was when it had first opened a little over 2 years ago. A lot has changed since then. When I say the most important hotel, it rivals the venetian for importance, but is kind of a central hub for all of the other hotels/casinos.
They have their own bus system that connects from the piers and the airport and a number of other buses that take you to other casinos and hotels, Taipa etc. No other hotels offer that much bus service and a lot of their buses have free wifi. If you were to stay at the Sheraton, they charge you for wifi in your rooms while not only does the Galaxy offer it to all of their guests for free but on their buses.
The room this time around wasn't as nice as the first time, no balcony but a lovely bathroom and comfortable bed area. They offer a free mini bar which is a first for me. Free drinks and beer, chips and noodles. That was refreshing.
The lobby itself is huge and has a nice diamond show every 30 mins or so. A lot of money, work and detail went into the making of this hotel which is ever expanding. 2 other hotels share the property: hotel okura and the banyan tree. They connect in the lobby and have dark, quiet lobbies so it you want to get away from some of the craziness, maybe try those hotels. I do recommend this hotel but I've also found the City of Dreams hotels nice too so maybe check them out also. Stay away from Sheraton. Probably the worst hotel in Macau and a waste of money.
