I'd like to preface this review by saying two things: 1) My wife and I love Galveston. 2) The water clarity (its not polluted) isn't blue like Cancún. We did Cancún in May, and we'd pick Galveston over Mexico any day. So take this review considering my mindset and predisposition. We live 90 minutes north of Galveston, and stay overnight...

Just came back from another lovely weekend there to celebrate our 1-year anniversary. We got married in the Music Hall at The Galvez last Oct. We loved it. Our guests loved it. The food and service were top notch. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. This year, we stayed in a remodeled 6th floor room that's a...

Stayed 3 nights at the Galvez Sept. 29th through October 1st in celebration of our 50 years of marriage and our return to Texas after 50 years. I chose this hotel for its beautiful old architecture. The rooms are very small compared to today's standard, but that's how things were in 1911 when it was built. The lobby bar and...

Hotel Galvez is a beautiful, historic property and worth a visit. Although my room was tiny and the walls quite thin, I took it in stride as being an old building. A highlight for me was the personal tour I received from "Bobby," a gentleman who has worked there for 67 years. What an honor and a privilege to hear...

I took an overnight trip to Galveston and stayed at the Galvez Hotel. It is a beautiful hotel and a pleasure to stay at. The rooms are terrific and the shower was the best of any hotel I've ever stayed in. The employees are really friendly and the location is great, right across the street from the water. You can't...

Upon arrival-breathtaking...Room wasn't ready and valet had our bags. Finally got to the room, which was a crackerjack box(not a suite), and had to call down for our bags after an hour or so. The sixth floor was 'newly' remodeled but had mold in the shower and there was trash under the bed. For what I spent on this hotel...
