We chose this hotel because we were told it's the nicest one in the area. However we were given a room on the second floor which was tiny. The room smelled moldy. Fridge was missing. Tiny bathroom. Not at all what we were expecting. Definitely not a four star hotel.

We are sorry you were disappointed with your stay. Please accept our sincere apologies. Know you can always request a room change and due to the historic nature of our hotel, some rooms are smaller when compared to modern properties.

Six of us Brits stayed for two days, Christmas Eve and Day. Comfortable rooms and excellent dining are. Christmas Day Buffet was extremely enjoyable. The buffet must have had every imaginable food on offer. Superbly presented with our own dedicated waitress. We did frighten the Americans with our Christmas Crackers and they were ammazed at our paper crown hats. I...

This is a beautiful, historic hotel on the waterfront in Galveston. Walking distance to many things, but the hotel itself is enticing. Mini-museum on-site, and tours available, including a haunted one. The pool/hot tub area is gorgeous. If more than two, ask about room size as it's historic and been updated, but still rooms can be on the small side....

EXCELLENT stay! From being welcomed by Mackenzie the awesome bellman to checking out with Kathryn. I was shocked how nicely this older hotel had been restored/renovated. The rooms and bathrooms were larger than described. When calling for extra towels and a roll way bed we waited no more than 8 minutes. Previous cruises we stayed at San Luis and by...

Easy to find, historic Hotel Galvez! Just drive until you reach the gulf. Beautiful grounds, lobby, and room overlooking the beach. Parking available in gated garage across the street. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Really enjoyed our four night stay!

I've stayed at the Galvez on several occasions in the past. My most recent stay was just as enjoyable as my previous visits. I usually stay at the Galvez in the winter when Galveston is relatively quiet and the tourists aren't around. That makes it even more enjoyable. The staff at the Galvez are outstanding. They make guests feel welcome...

My husband surprised me with a stay at the Galvez for our 5th wedding anniversary. I have only been telling him I would just love to go inside since we were dating right out of high school. It was beyond everything I could hope for. The atmosphere is amazing, the staff is all friendly, welcoming, and fun to talk with....

I booked a staycation as the wife's Christmas gift, but I think I was the big winner. Spa day was outstanding, which included a great stay in the co-ed lounge before and after the massages, and we had a very nice time enjoying a football game at the bar with friendly staff and visitors. I expect we will be back...
