The hotel has done some improvements since the last time I stay. The rooms are nice (no more musty smells) but the bathrooms still needs updating. The toilets are extremely low to the floor. The showers needs to be redone. For the price you pay you hope everything would be top notch. Went down to the bar and ordered drinks....

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Galvez much more than the weather while we were in Galveston over the New Years weekend. The weather kept us in the hotel more than we would have liked but appreciated the amenities the hotel had to offer due to the uncooperative weather - the onsite restaurants, the spa, room service (2x) and the...

Great place to stay, just a little disappointed in the bathroom area. Should not see mold in the caulking areas of the shower/bath. It should be replaced when you can no longer clean it. At this price point should not see this at all next to or in the shower/tub. Otherwise the rest of the room and staff were excellent.

This was our first stay at the Gálvez, but it won't be our last. While our room was small, it was very comfortable. The bed was wonderful, and the room featured complimentary bottled water, good coffee, and free wi-fi. Every staff member we met was especially courteous and helpful. It was a great experience, and next time we're going to...

Reviewed 6 January 2015

Wonderful old hotel, nicely redone. However, it comes across as somewhat bland. The restaurant feels like an upgraded coffee shop and the bar has little character. They need to open some of the space they use for banquets and special events as restaurant space. Staff was professional, polite and efficient. Housekeeping was overwhelmed and also ran out of bath towels....

My stay at Hotel Galvez was commemorative because I went to a New Years Eve party over there. After the party, I went upstairs to my room to crash. Almost everybody from the party stayed at this resort. It's a perfect place to stay when you are to drunk to drive. The front desk clerks were friendly and helpful. I...
