Just spent two wonderful days at the Galvez. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Our room was the perfect size for two adults and one Jack Russell. We loved the pool and cocktails. The best part of the trip was our tour and history overview of hotel and Galveston from Bobby. He was so passionate about the stories and...

The Galvez was a great place to stay for my family. The lobby and pool are wonderful and the service was also top notch. The rooms were a bit small for my large family but that is just a circumstance of the age of the property. I expected a bit more in the finish of the rooms based on their...

Our first family summer trip to Galveston Island was last summer (2014). We stayed at the Galvez and it was a total getaway. The architecture, history of the hotel and amenities all lend to a first class stay. The rooms are smaller than you would find in a newer hotel but this is consistent with the age of the hotel....

The hotel is in a great location as it is on the sea wall. Hotel is lovely however our room was tiny! I mean very small. The bed was comfortable, great pillows and a clean room. Staff was friendly. I don't think it was good value for what it cost.

Thank you for the insight regarding your stay at Hotel Galvez. We are pleased that you found the bed comfortable and the service good.

My reservation was at The Tremont, which I was told is the "sister property" to the Hotel Galvez. However, when I arrived at The Tremont, I was told they were out of rooms and could not honor my reservation. So I was sent a good distance over to the Hotel Galvez. Neither the staff at The Tremont nor at the...
