HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 March 2017 via mobile

Inside is just as impressive and well cared for. The hostess met us at the station, checked us in...

Tried to use gift certificates that we won at an auction...twice in October on a Thursday(but denied because nights that worked for us were not available(of course only dates we could use gift certificates could not include Friday/Saturday, special events or Holidays and that REALLY limits the use). At the time (October twice attempted) the 'customer service' person failed to...

We did...

We have an awesome one night stay here. Everyone that works here was very helpful. Parking was across the street. Location was ideal. Power was out for a few hours, and back-up generator was on but it wasn't a big deal since there's so much to see of Galveston.

This wonderful, historic hotel was a great place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I enjoyed seeing the collection of old photos and memorabilia in the basement -- it was quite fascinating. The staff were all very friendly and polite. Will definitely stay there again!

I had outstanding service when shopping for a swimsuit today. The staff in the gift shop were so pleasant and welcoming. Amy was especially helpful and patient in searching for colors, sizes, and styles. Great experience!!

My husband and I needed a diversion and we decided that we wanted a seaside experience. Galveston is a reasonable jaunt from North Texas and we decided to stay at the Galvez for its history and proximity to the beach. Back in the day, my parents stayed at this venerable hotel from time to time. We were very pleased with...
