"Husband's Birthday Getaway!!!"
Awesome Birthday for my husband!! We usually stay at the Harbor House Hotel which is less expensive, but is also a sister property, and make use of the Galvez's amenities and pool area. We have stayed at the hotel before, and decided to stay at the Galvez this time because we got a really good deal with Hotels.com!! The room was very nice, clean, and had an full ocean view!! We will definitely stay here again and again.

"Galveston's Best Hotel"
When staying in Galveston, The Galvez is an absolute must! I've been going to The Galvez since I was a child and the service has never changed. Great rooms, comfortable beds, relaxing spa, and the Sunday brunch is a MUST!

"Your search just ended!"
Every once in a while you find the perfect spot. This is it! The hotel itself is gorgeous, and usually historic is code for old, this is beautiful. The hotel is a short walk to Pleasure Pier and right across the street from the beach. The staff is great, the hotel is great. If you are going to Galveston stay here!

"Wonderful Solo Getaway"
There is something special about a landmark / historic hotel that adds a special dimension of time and place to a property. The Hotel Galvez combines that with comfort and friendliness. The staff at the hotel, as most people encountered in Galveston, were warm, welcoming and accommodating. Take time to look around the common areas such as the ballroom or the mini -museum downstairs that highlights the history of the hotel and Galveston. If you're lucky, you'll get to meet the gracious and esteemed Guest Ambassador, Bobby Hilton who has worked at the Galvez since he was fourteen. He sometimes gives guided tours of the hotel. Mr.Bobby's genuine smile would soften the hardest soul. If you're interested in "ghost stories" there are some to be had, but nothing spooky here. I do wish I'd been there for Sunday brunch, if only to enjoy the large "terrace" dining room. The dinner I did have in the smaller lobby restaurant was beautifully prepared and delicious. Take advantage of the free shuttle that runs from the hotel to the sister property (The Tremont) near The Strand. The ease and convenience of the Seawall and downtown without parking headaches. The bed was so comfortable- firm mattress, crisp, cool sheets and lots of comfy pillows. Luxurious rain-head shower..... A great getaway.

The employees were extremely polite and helpful. Service was excellent. Did not have the opportunity to try the restaurants in the hotel, but room service was prompt and the food was good. The prices were very fair. The waiters at the pool were always available, and were happy to provide water at no cost with a smile.

"Oldy but not a goody"
Small room for twice the price. And they charge you for everything. Breakfast to Valle parking. I think if could figure it out they'd charge for the elevator too. Beds were full size not queens. Paint chipped carpet nasty. For $200 more than anywhere else, no class...just old.

"Don't let first impressions put you off"
booked Hotel Galvez as couldn't get my first choice hotel in Galveston. I have to admit that I don't like to stay in 'old' hotels and was ready to walk back out of the front door as soon as I had walked in ! My 13yr old also commented that it was 'freaky' and like the Tower of Terror at Disney. we humphed and grumped but decided it was only for 2 nights so to keep the peace, gave up our complaining and got on with it. Room was VERY small and the bathroom felt quite claustrophobic. Virtually impossible for a family of 4 to maneuver around. I also felt the hotel corridors had an old musty damp smell but nobody else seemed to notice that. that being said, the room was clean and the air con kept it comfortable enough despite the size. Ate in the restaurant once and it was fantastic. the food and the service were second to none. Pool area was lovely too and not too busy. all in all despite my first impressions I have to admit the hotel was a lovely place to stay and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would I stay again ? probably not but that's just my personal want for airy, open, modern hotels.

"First Wedding Anniversary"
Hotel was beautiful and service was good. Asked for a room with a refrigerator and also if there was a cd/dvd player. Was told all rooms have these amenities but they do not. Had to have a refrigerator delivered and electric will not allow for use of cd/dvd players. Also, paid additional for gulf view but only given a partial view. Pool and spa were wonderful. Free use of bicycles, undercover parking. Overall a wonderful stay. It was my first anniversary and really wanted/needed the cd player.

"Great 50th Wedding Anniversary"
When I made the reservation, I made a casual comment that we were staying for our 50th wedding anniversary. Upon check-in, we were very pleased that we had been upgraded to a very nice ocean-view room. We very pleased with the excellent Sunday Brunch. The selection of foods was great, and EVERYTHING we tried was prepared to perfection (the Eggs Benedict were perfect, the shrimp was tender... not "chewy" or overcooked, etc.). WE just might have to come back next year for our 51st anniversary!!

"Beautiful but pricey, a bit overrated"
The hotel is beautiful, historic, grand, right on the beach--definitely a pleasure to stay at in the grand scheme. However, the desk staff we encountered were a little rude. Also, EVERYTHING here is an additional charge, so be prepared to spend even more money. Parking is $17 a night, and the only other option is a scary-looking self-park garage across the street. The basic King rooms are SMALL; we barely had enough room to unfold our baby's pack n play. Room service, vending machines, pool side drinks, etc are all extremely expensive. Pool area is great but it gets crowded easily. We didn't do it because of expense but the brunch spread looks incredible. All in all, a great place to stay if you have plenty of money to spend, but a bit overrated in my opinion..."grand" and "historic" don't mean much if your guests don't feel comfortable and appreciated.

Beautiful hotel with history and character to match. Great restaurant within. My room was comfortable with a full gulf view which I would recommend. The only fault I found was that the walls are thin so that we could hear the people next to us. But we plan to return for a weekend visit next year.

"Too Cramped for 4 people"
I have always wanted to stay at Hotel Galvez. I decided to spend the $400.00 for one night, as a "Mothers Day" gift for myself and my 80 year old mom and 2 granddaughters . When we got to the front desk at 4:00pm Saturday. I had to wait for my room to be cleaned and make ready. It was way too crowded with a wedding going on in the lobby. When we got to our room, was disappointment at the size, way too small, with 2 double beds. With one chair for 4 people. Had no table, no ceiling fan. Took a while to get the small room cooled.
