The Hotel Galvez is a wonderful place to stay when in Galveston. The staff is friendly. The rooms are beautiful. The beds are very comfortable. The views of the gulf are awesome. My only regret is there are no balconies in the rooms but there are plenty of lovely areas to sit outside to enjoy the sea breeze.

Worst stay we ever had, the room was small and old, the bathroom appeared to be fallen apart and was very unattractive for the top of the line location

My husband and I spent 3 nights for our anniversary at the Galvez. This was our first visit to the hotel and had read about the small rooms from other reviews. Yes, room was small but it turned out fine. It was very comfortable. Our room had a gulf view which was relaxing. The air conditioning was a challenge; when...

The Hotel Galvez is awesome !! A beautiful old historic hotel that makes you feel like part of the history of Galveston. I greatly preferred the authentic charm of this historic hotel over any of the other "run-of-the-mill" hotels along the coast. Comfortable rooms. Nice lobby. Nice pool. And a very convenient location. This hotel has a story ... and...

Nice hotel, but they never cleaned our room the first day. Therefore the cost is too high when the cleaning service doesn't make sure the rooms are cleaned. The day manager did give me a $50 credit agree I told them I was unhappy the room and bathroom were not cleaned.
