“Excellent Experience!”

Loved loved this hotel. Great location and I loved the complimentary bicycles that were available. The service was super; the staff was fantastic. We loved the pool and everything. Can't think of a better place place to stay in Galveston near the beach!

One of the best preserved classic resort hotels in existence. It has survived economic hard times, hurricanes and just gets better. Ask for a tour by Robert and he will tell you passionately about his decades of experience with the hotel owners, guests, and evolution of this fine establishment. Ideal if you are taking a cruise as they or their sister hotel Tremont let you park free and shuttle you back and forth to the vessel in style. Great for people watching.

Room Tip: Go for a view of the Gulf if you can get it.

My husband and I got married this summer and had our reception at the Hotel Galvez. I cannot say enough good things about the quality of service. Angie, the event coordinator at the Galvez, is AWESOME. She is so easy to work with and really does everything she can to make sure you have the wedding of your dreams. I do not have one bad thing to say, the reception room was done beautifully, our honeymoon suite was gorgeous, the food was excellent, it was all great! Thank you to Angie and the entire staff at the Galvez for giving us a picture perfect wedding!

We had a great experience, the hotel and facilities are beautiful. The rooms are on the small side, but who goes to the beach to spend much time (other than sleeping) in the hotel room? Great staff, convenience to beach access, affordable, a gem in Galveston. Don't skip visiting the museum and let your children explore the hotel's history, they will appreciate staying at the Galvez!

Almost 66 years ago I was born in Galveston, Texas. After 27 years away I went back to stay my hometown for one night. I booked a room at the Galvez Hotel. This hotel was built in 1911. It has been part of the Galveston skyline for over 100 years. I was expecting to find and old and run down venue. What I found was a class hotel. I felt like I was on the French Riviera. It also was the twin of a hotel that I used to stay at in Maputo,Mocambique years ago-The Polano. My visit was unforgettable and happy. The bar and the restaurants are excellent. The staff is friendly and efficient. Parking is convenient. I was able to take the hotel shuttle and go to The Strand, he historical part of Galveston. I also enjoyed the interesting hotel museum. If you go to Galveston, this is The Place to stay.

Room Tip: I will leave this to each traveler to decide.
