Very nice hotel with lot's of history. Staff was friendly and helpful. Nice rooms with lots of hotel features.

The restaurant was slightly lacking in service. Food was good, but service was slow.

Overall, nice stay. Would return.

We are pleased that you were able to check another historic hotel off your list. Hotel Galvez really is a treasure for Galveston. We hope that you had an opportunity to tour our Hall of History, located on the lower level of the hotel. Also, the hotel offers a free tour app for smartphones. Search "Hotel Galvez" on your app store for our free 25-minute history and 20-minute ghost tours. Please stay with us again or visit our sister property - The Tremont House which is housed in a building that dates to 1879. Thanks again.

I stayed here on a weekend getaway with 3 friends, most of whom were new to Galveston. I don't know why you'd want to stay anyplace else--even though the weather was cold, rainy, and windy, the hotel was so warm and inviting we didn't mind. We had only been in our room for 5 minutes when the front desk called to see if we needed anything. We didn't need a thing, but we did ask about getting our car from the parking lot. The woman at the desk suggested that we just use the hotel car so we wouldn't have to bother--a great suggestion that worked out perfectly. The driver also picked us up promptly when we called after dinner. The room was clean and comfortable, and, other reviews to the contrary, not too small at all. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was only so-so, but the hotel itself is good enough to deserve all 5 stars.

From the kindness and helpfulness of the staff to the beautiful building, this place was wonderful. The spa treatment was one of the very best i have ever had. The resturant service and quality matched the beauty of the hotel. Want to go back.

Room Tip: The rooms can be a bit small but this seems to be a product of the historical nature. We were able...
