"Beware of the remodel or construction"
We just stayed there for 1 night, had been to Galveston several times before and never had the chance to stay as it was always full. Well.. finally got the opportunity and everything was good till the next morning, there was some sort of remodeling or construction going on, it started at 8am the noise was very loud. Could not sleep anymore, called the front desk and they gave me another room but to be honest my stay was spoiled already beyond repair.. When I checked out they did not ask me if everything had been ok with our stay.. wich it was obviously not. Very nice hotel but very disappointed at customer satisfaction

Went for one night with my daughter. We visited the Spa and just enjoyed the beautiful surroundings of the hotel. Although the weather was poor, just hanging out in the hotel was great! I highly recommend the Spa!

"Galvez forever (or until the ocean covers it up)"
The plush bed, the heated pool, the nicely appointed room, the historic trappings of Galveston's grand hotel, the instant access to the Gulf of Mexico across Seawall Blvd., all on what amounted to an overcast spring day at the end of December -- it is all enough to make up for the gigantic but blah Xmas 2015 buffet. So, always look forward to a stay at the Galvez, but head elsewhere for your meal. Convenience and inclusive wine does not make up for what is still just a lot of food sitting around in chafing dishes, which is never the optimum food situation. Sorry Galvez that I love, can't ever return to rubber chicken land with you.

"Galvez review"
The hotel is very historically beautiful. We were there at Christmas so we did not swim although the pool area is very nice. We were disappointed in the housekeeping service. We were there 4 nights and our sheets were changed maybe once. The room was never vacuumed. We saw they used a broom to sweep the carpet in one room. We did not dine there. It was nice not to pay for parking although they do have valet.

"Epic Security fail"
We were Locked out of our hotel by security for no apparent reason. Hotel manager could not make amends. Terrible experience over the holiday weekend coming to the hotel with tired children and waiting for over an hour and a half for room to be unlocked and housekeeping g services at 10 pm

"First class"
We were in Galveston for a wedding. This hotel is a quick walk from the 'Pleasure Pier' and Murdock's and immediately across the street from the Gulf waters. The adjacent street was a quick way to get to the historic city center. Our room was petit, but comfortable. Don't bring a lot of luggage.

My husband and I had a great time at this hotel. It has the old charm feel but with updated rooms. The in-room dining we ordered was quick, fresh, and filling. Overall a great room with comfortable beds and a nice view of the beach and pleasure pier.

"Unrestful sleep"
This historic hotel is lovely.The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was small and was located in a corner. There was no thermostat in the room to modify the temperature and we were very warm the entire stay. The bedding and especially the pillows were quite uncomfortable. Between the temperature and the pillows we were both unable to get restful sleep. This room was expensive for the off season considering the quality of the room and the poor sleep.

"Nice hotel, but small rooms."
I paid $199 for a partial view room. When we checked in, the desk attendant tried to tell me the view was an "upgrade" they just handed us. Not so, but I was polite when I told them so. Don't know if they took offense, but the room we go was TINY and had an overwhelmingly partial view. Place was beautiful, though, and staff was very accommodating otherwise.

I went to Galveston for a reunion with 2 of my best friend from 30 years ago, when we all lived in Galveston. The Gálvez was our hang out in those days and it was the perfect place to meet after all this time. The only negative, I asked for a cup of coffee while waiting for my friends and was served a lukewarm coffee for $ 3.75. I would have expected a free coffee in a place like that.

Perhaps the more expensive rooms have been updated/cleaned. But the room we were in hasn't and isn't a 4 star accommodation. In addition it's not much larger than an outside cruise ship room. The pool and spa are nice.

"Pay for 4 stars, get 3 stars"
You get a three-star hotel stay for the price of four stars. Although the location is prime and the hotel has a great deal of history, the room we were in was very small, had no fridge, no balcony and the windows did not open. The hallways have an old feel to them and during our stay smelled like Indian food. Also, breakfast was not included in the price of the stay. However, the hotel lobby looks great and the building is very majestic from the outside. I would stay there again but during the week, when the price per night is more than twice lower than during the weekend.

Any place near P 1/2 Street must be fun. We would not stay anywhere in Galveston but your hotel, that being said our room (206) shared a common door with room 218, and we could hear every word and noise from the other side of the door. Which means they could hear every word and noise from our side of the door. Soundproofing the door is a must before you stay in either of these rooms.

"Galvez"
Except for a couple of the doormen, the staff were very helpful and friendly. I was never able to reach the concierge - he was nowhere to be seen , not answered the phone when I needed him. The Sunday brunch was to die for, and Louella our server was terrific. The room was small, but comfortable. I wish it had furniture with drawers (maybe a small dresser?) to unload our suitcases into, and not just the closet for hang-ups. Also, the tub had spots in it (maybe paint??). Very good fitness room downstairs. Although the dumbells only are up to 50 lbs. they have machines you can use instead if that's your thing. The downstairs lobby & common areas are old world and very tastefully decorated. I've heard it's a haunted hotel but nothing like that happened to us. Overall a very good experience.

Have not stayed at the Galvez in Years. Was not disappointed! Had a great time for our 25th anniversary. Hotel lobby is great with great live entertainment in front of the bar. Rooms have been redone, but not lost their charm. Service was excellent, and pool area great. Perfect location on the seawall with the strand strait down the 21ST street that runs next to the hotel.
