On the positive side: the wait staff and front desk were exceptional. Neutral: room was clean, but a little small. Expected for an historic hotel. Negative: Rude valets. Shuttle bus to cruise leaves early without warning. Not their fault: Don't go on biker weekends. Seawall Drive is mostly shut down for a motorcycle event making hotel difficult to get to....

The Galvez is a beautiful hotel and I found the rooms to be very comfortable. However, the Haunted Hotel Package at Halloween was very disappointing. Six of us booked for this event almost three months in advance and we were very excited about doing something a little different for Halloween. Unfortunately, what we did was exactly what we would have...

We appreciate the feedback on your ghost tour dinner. Typically, our ghost tour dinners are served in the restaurant but on the night of your tour we had two groups. We wanted to insure that both groups had good service which is why you dined in one of our parlors. Again, thanks for the feedback, we'll pass it along.

My wife and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary by staying at the Hotel Galvez. Although the Galvez is beautiful and offers many amenities, we found the hotel staff went above and beyond in providing customer service. The staff could never do enough to make our stay enjoyable.

Renovated old hotel with small hotels at the back site which we booked for $ 125,- ex tax and breakfast. Very small room with kingszie bed no 319. No breakfast buffet during the week. Only expensive a la carte. As a result we went to Gumbo a little farther to have breakfast for two of $ 19,- Parking free. Wifi...

Thank you for the review on your stay. As you can imagine due to the historic nature of the hotel, some of our rooms are small when compared to modern construction. We hope that you enjoyed your visit to Galveston.
