“Too pricey.”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Although the hotel write-ups accurately depicts the size of the room, I felt that the room was way over priced. We paid over $300 for a room with a city view. You could hardly turn around in this oversized closet. Tonight we are staying in another Wyndam property that is easily twice as big, equally nice and less than $100. Shame ,Shame.

Thank you for the feedback on your stay. Our rates, like all hotels, are based on current demand and the season as well as location. For example, a beachfront hotel in the spring and summer may have a higher rate than a hotel located off the Seawall. We hope that you enjoyed your visit to Galveston.

We stayed at Hotel Galvez for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is very beautiful and the staff are friendly and helpful. We arrived early for check-in but we were given a room straightaway. Room was big enough an very clean. It was a bit cool to sit by the pool but it looked very nice with plenty of space.

Hotel is nicely located on the sea wall and there are plenty bars and restaurants to wander to.

Definitely worth a visit.

We stay at Hotel Galvez when ever we visit Galveston. It is our favorite hotel. The rooms are small but elegant. The shower area of the room makes up the small room. It's very nice. Our cruise ship delayed our leaving due to an oil spill. The staff was AMAZINGLY nice and accommodating.
Regretfully, I'm notating a negative feedback for our most recent stay. We always stay the Friday and Saturday night before a cruise out of Galveston. Everything was great until we returned. We were one of the first passengers off the ship and yet, one of the VERY LAST to be shuttled back to this hotel. We waited for well over an hour, with luggage in tow for our ride back the hotel. (It's 5-minutes away). We made 8 phone calls to the valet inquiring. They repeated the claim that the driver was on their way. The other hotel shuttle's (who were much farther away than the Galvez) had made numerous pick ups during the same hour and a half. The SAME driver. We shouldn't have to stay at a Best Western (use their shuttle) to avoid having the bliss of a Caribbean cruise destroyed by substandard customer service upon our return.
