We stayed at the Hotel Galvez over Christmas break for two nights. For being as old as it is, the hotel is stunning! It has a beautiful mix of classic character and modern touches. The hotel offers valet parking for $18 a day, or you can self park in their gated parking garage across the street. We arrived at the...

If you think dirty dishes outside your room on check-in and red stains on the sheets is normal, then go for it. Half-eaten food and used napkins at our door was an unwelcome sight at check-in. Apparently, the staff was overwhelmed from Sunday brunch and couldn't make rounds to clear the halls of room service. Also we were told the...

My daughter and my two granddaughters were booked on a Disney Cruise so decided to get to Galveston a day early. I chose the Galvez Hotel because I had seen the exterior a few months ago and thought it would be nice. While our room was small, everything about it was comfy, elegant and lovely. The dining room for breakfast...

We had a wonderful weekend at the Galvez recently, and we wish to recognize one of your employees named Jarvis. Twice during our visit, Jarvis provided impressive service without being asked. During an early morning visit to the pool, Jarvis noticed that we did not have any towels as they had not been put out yet for guests. He went...

Great location and very pretty during Christmas. We enjoyed the history of the hotel along with the ghost stories. You must check out the lower level and the Hall of History. It was very interesting and informative! We ate at the Galvez Bar and Grill and it was very good. We would stay there again!
