The heated pool and nicely designed and maintained hot tub makes this a top pick for us. Right on the beach gives immediate access and beautiful views from the hotel. They also have a free shuttle to the Strand which is great to free you up for a fun and safe night out not having to drive. The staff here...

We have been to Hotel Galvez several times now and it continues to impress! From the moment you drive up the service begins. Valets greet you with a smile and unload your car and take it valet parking for you. You walk up to the door and greeters are there with a smile opening the door. This last time it...

Love the hotel, can't beat the location, history and atmosphere. Service great, as usual. Really need to upgrade the oversight on maintenance. Paint on carpet, poor repairs take away from what would otherwise be "GRAND"

Common spaces interesting and welcoming, service great, beds outstanding, parking good, located across street from beach, and the historic perspective is well done. We enjoyed the restaurant and bar on New Year's Eve.

We spent 4 nights here and the hotel is a beautifully restored old hotel. What that means is the rooms are small, although comfortable and clean. The pool is in a lovely setting and, because it's at a slightly lower grade, is not affected by winds off the Gulf of Mexico. The lobby and hotel bar area are quiet and...

The hotel staff was very friendly and the hotel was clean very pretty. Our first night, the room next door had booming loud noises but when I went out into the hall outside their door, I heard nothing, so never knocked and asked them to be quiet. My only other gripe is that the window won't open on the 6th...
