Stayed one night at this hotel, great hotel. It is supposed to be haunted, rooms 501 - 507 I think we were told. Great location. Clean. Great staff. This is an older hotel and although it is updated the rooms are small.

We (a group of 10) stayed at Hotel Galvez on Oct 28. Once we walked into the lobby we were greeted with a strong musty, mildew smell. The rooms were very small and had the same smell as well. We paid three times the normal rate for that one night. On our return from the cruise we stayed at the...

This was our 16th Wedding Anniversary and we chose the Hotel Galvez 16 yrs ago because it was such a wonderful, historic, charming and cozy hotel that we expected to be able to re-visit for many, many years to come!

I checked in on a sunny day - parking is easy, self park or valet. The charm starts as soon as you pull into the driveway. On a sunny day the Gulf of Mexico is sparkling, and the palm trees swaying in the breeze make a wonderful welcome. The Galvez is a Wyndham property which is nice is you collect...

I went on vacation with my mom and dad. Life is so short we have to make the best of times. The rooms were cozy but,( they were too-- small). It was tiny and cramped - I have too mention that it was clean , just thought bigger rooms would have rated a five star. I know the hotel is...

Thank you for choosing Hotel Galvez & Spa for your family vacation. As you can imagine, hotel guest rooms were quite different in 1911 when compared to modern hotels. We hope our expansive public areas and service compensated.

We had the best time. The concierge, Melissa, went above and beyond to make our trip special. The room was beautiful! We had an ocean view and parking was a breeze. This hotel is located near all of the action. I will be going back!!!!!

Started out with the tour. Our guide, Melissa, who is also the concierge at the hotel was delightful and full of information and stories and shared her iPad with pictures. Went to 4 locations, would have loved to do a few more. We didn't see any ghosts but the lights in the spa did turn off and on several times....
