Unfortunately Hotel like this one are becoming rare. Unique the atmosphere into the hall with high ceilings and big windows. Classic and fascinating indeed! Very cosy the room. I didn't have the opportunity to 'test' the restaurant although it look very attractive. I will next time!

To think we almost missed out on a wonderful experience! I had booked us at a different resort but I was notified that their pool would be under construction during our stay so I decided to give the Galvez a try. A true Grand Dame of a hotel! Every time we approached the front doors they were opened for us....

My wife and I showed up to this place without a reservation. We were just driving by and thought it looked interesting. I spoke with the gentleman at the desk and explained we wanted a room for a couple of days and he offered a room at a reasonable rate. I politely asked if we could have an ocean view...

We've been coming here for years to their amazing Christmas buffet. Once again, it didn't disappoint though we learned why we enjoyed the first sitting so much. It's less crowded and we got our regular table for two midway down at the windows. This time we had to check in first, because we were staying over night. By the time...

Maintenance was called and arrived but did not have the correct tool(s) to repair the door lock. additionally, the volume on the TV was locked so low...

Galvez Hotel - a nice retreat from the city, I got a room with a nice view of the sea. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful, although it is quite far away from the airport. The only thing missing is good coffee..

Great restaurant, wonderful property. After a long day on the gulf, climbing into a hot shower and an extremely comfortable bed was exactly what I needed. The Hotel Galvez delivered in every way. Definitely will be a repeat customer the next time I visit Galveston.

I was a bit taken back when I called for a reservation and the reservation desk person was somewhat short and said "NO", we dont have state rates or military rates. Best she could do was a double bed room facing the city. This was a park and cruise rate. Fortunately for us the beautiful young last working at the...
