The room was very small not much room to move around at all. For the price I paid definitely thought it would be better. Last year stayed at Hilton and it was a lot better and cheaper.

We are sorry that you were disappointed in your stay. Due to the historic nature of the hotel, room size may be smaller when compared to modern construction. We hope you'll consider our sister hotel, The Tremont House, on your next visit.

We loved our stay at the Hotel Galvez. Although our family barely fit in the tiny room, they had an amazing pool area and was conveniently located across from the beach. We spent hours at both. There is shopping within walking distance. We will stay there again but maybe not as a family vacation.

If you enjoy great hotels, this is one. Great service and very clean. The area was still suffering from (after many years) from hurricane Ike. If you enjoy great wildlife in the coastal wetlands, make this hotel your base.

Thank you for staying at Hotel Galvez. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel. As you mentioned, Hurricane Ike struck Galveston in 2008 and we feel that the island has made a strong recovery. One of the more positive things is the new Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier which is located just four blocks away from...

This was a wonderful place to stay. If I had anything to say it would be about the size of the room. It was a bit small but the service more than made up for that. The spa is awesome!! I had the tropical trio and my husband had the massage. It's worth it!

My wife and I celebrated an anniversary in July with my first visit to Galveston. The Hotel Galvez has charming accommodations in a convenient location.

Just spent two wonderful days at the Galvez. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Our room was the perfect size for two adults and one Jack Russell. We loved the pool and cocktails. The best part of the trip was our tour and history overview of hotel and Galveston from Bobby. He was so passionate about the stories and...
