My husband surprised me with a stay at the Galvez for our 5th wedding anniversary. I have only been telling him I would just love to go inside since we were dating right out of high school. It was beyond everything I could hope for. The atmosphere is amazing, the staff is all friendly, welcoming, and fun to talk with....

I booked a staycation as the wife's Christmas gift, but I think I was the big winner. Spa day was outstanding, which included a great stay in the co-ed lounge before and after the massages, and we had a very nice time enjoying a football game at the bar with friendly staff and visitors. I expect we will be back...

Wonderful dog friendly place close to pleasure pier and just across from the seawall. They serve a popular breakfast buffet on the weekend. Very popular with wedding receptions as well. Very friendly and helpful staff with a good internship program.

Staying in Galveston during a business/vacation stay. Decided to stay at this historic hotel to experience some of the historic charm of the area. This is a very comfortable hotel situated in a great location for anyone wanting to see both the downtown area of the old town and the seawall. You are in comfortable walking distance of these areas....

I was recently discriminated against at this hotel because of a brain disorder that I have. I won't get into the details but she traumatized me. My disability is protected under the ADA and would hate to file charges against the hotel in the county court. That would be a lawsuit that could cost up to 110,00 dollars. Please contact...
