Even though this is an old and historic hotel the room was pretty well up to date. Very good beds and the thermostat allowed us to set the temp exactly the way we wanted it. It was quiet and the window curtains closed out all the light.The staff was very polite and helpful. This was a wedding held at the...

We loved the whole property and had a wonderful weekend. All the staff were very accomodating. We stayed in the Howard Hughes suite for our daughter's wedding. Our room had nice views of the Gulf. Bridesmaids enjoyed the spa, and the Sunday Brunch was excellent. A beautiful historic hotel and a great setting for a wedding.

I loved this hotel, especially with the Christmas finery on display. Super location, very nice staff. We had some issues with our room key system not working. I was told twice by front desk that I was deactivating the key by placing it near my cell phone. I travel often, so I knew this was not the issue. After several...

Upon our search for a nice hotel to celebrate our 15th anniversary we decided to book Hotel Galvez & Spa with the benefit of the doubt of the mixed reviews from Tripadvisor's comments of rooms being old, small, and mildewy. In Comparison to other hotels the Hotel Galvez was more expensive but the ocean front location and the beautiful landscaped...

It has been a long time since we stayed at the Galvez and they really spruced the place up. It is a historic hotel, but they were able to add modern features and update the rooms while keeping the historic look and feel. The staff was great and the piano man in the lobby was a nice touch. Not sure...

Our front desk can store your luggage if you would like to explore while you wait. Additionally, the hotel offers a jazz duo on Fridays and Saturdays from 5...
