About Hotel Galvez & Spa, A Wyndham Grand Hotel, Galveston

Opened in 1911 and bestowed with the title "Queen of the Gulf," The Hotel Galvez, A Wyndham Grand Hotel, has been painstakingly restored to its original majesty and promises to reign supreme in Galveston, Texas, for years to come. This 8-story Spanish Colonial-style hotel is located on a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, 0.5 miles (0.8 kilometers) from downtown Galveston, and sits within 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) of the Galveston Convention and Visitor's Bureau, the Moody Civic Center, and Gallery Row. Houston Hobby Airport is 44 miles (71 kilometers) from the hotel.

The elegant lobby features mahogany wood beams across the ceiling. The lushly landscaped outdoor pool features a seasonal swim-up bar, private cabanas surrounding the pool, a poolside grill, and multiple spa tubs.

The smoke-free, business-friendly hotel offers 14,025 square feet (1,303 square meters) of elegant function space outfitted with modern technological support. A fee-based, 24-hour self-service business center is available, as is complimentary WiFi. Chefs at Galvez Bar and Grill prepare traditional and nouvelle cuisine served in a romantic atmosphere with spectacular views of the beach and an endless ocean horizon. Valet and self parking are available for a surcharge.

The 224 guestrooms of The Hotel Galvez, A Wyndham Grand Hotel, feature tones of lush greens, rich gold, and sepia furnishings reminiscent of the 1930s.

Beach vacation
Beach vacation. Perfect location right across the street. Great pool. Both the bellboys and wait staff in morning were slow and not very helpful. Concierge, pool service and front desk were great.

The Hotel would have been amazing but during our stay our A/C unit was not working properly. We called and complained several times and it was never fixed. We were just offered a breakfast voucher for compensation.
