We stayed at the Hotel Galvez for one night before boarding our cruise to Mexico. Our stay began with a very friendly welcome from their helpful and efficient valet. The front desk staff kindly provided us with a corner room.
The room was nicely decorated, clean and quiet. Comfortable beds and good temperature control. Large flat screen TV.
We had a delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant. I had seafood chop salad and my daughter had Caesar salad with shrimp. Warm garlic bread and butter was also served. The waitstaff was terrific! Salads were so large that we should have shared one. The cost was very reasonable for the nice dining atmosphere and the convenience of not having to leave the hotel.
In the morning, before leaving for the cruise, we had the smoked salmon and bagels. It was outstanding, with a very generous portion of salmon, chopped egg, red onion and capers. The coffee was a special Starbucks blend and also was very good.
The good news for cruise-goers is that you can leave your car at the hotel for a one-time fee of $15. They also provide free shuttle to the ship and back.
