The hotel is in a great location as it is on the sea wall. Hotel is lovely however our room was tiny! I mean very small. The bed was comfortable, great pillows and a clean room. Staff was friendly. I don't think it was good value for what it cost.

My reservation was at The Tremont, which I was told is the "sister property" to the Hotel Galvez. However, when I arrived at The Tremont, I was told they were out of rooms and could not honor my reservation. So I was sent a good distance over to the Hotel Galvez. Neither the staff at The Tremont nor at the... More

The experience begins when you drive up and see the amazing architecture of this historic hotel that separates this from anything else on the oceanfront. You are not disappointed when you enter and see that the interior is just as grand as the exterior. Well maintained and luxurious for a hotel over 100 years old! We had a "limited view"... More

Very nice. We had 2 rooms. Both were very clean and comfortable. Great pool. Grandkids, kids and grandparents all had a great stay. The staff was very polite and attentive to our needs. Location was close to most activities and within walking distance to food and the pleasure pier. We added an additional night our stay. We will be back.... More

I would return to the hotel to eat. The cost of the room is quite expensive for the service I received from the shuttle and the poor info received about the shuttle from the valet. My 69-year-old girlfriend and I were left out to swelter in the Galveston sun waiting for the shuttle to arrive. At 10:05, the valet told... More

We had an amazing time at the Gálvez. The rooms are very clean and well maintained...they even provide a regular blow dryer not the tiny travel ones.

Stayed here as a child, again often as a young adult and again just for business. It's been great through the years and the current management is doing a. Fine job. The rooms on the end facing the ocean are very nice.
