As a guest at the hotel I do not feel I should have paid extra for parking, or the valet should have at least suggested something since we had 4 cars 2 with handy caps a cheaper way for us to park to have Sunday Brunch. The Brunch was $35 and $39 for seniors and 13 and 16 year old...

Thank you for the feedback on your visit. As you mentioned, our valet charge is $17/vehicle. Hotel guests also have the option to self-park in our parking garage. Restaurant patrons can also take advantage of our restaurant parking located on Avenue P. There is an area on Avenue P at the rear of the hotel where guests can be dropped...

This hotel is a treasure, and has been updated in all of the right places while maintaining the integrity of the era that it's from. It is a great fit for adults or families. The location on the sea wall is perfect. The service is also top notch.

I visited the Hotel Galvez with my husband, daughter and her husband. We had 2 rooms. This was our first visit to Galveston and had made our reservations online. We were pleasantly surprised.

On a whim, after staying a few days in The Woodlands, we decided to go check out Galveston and see if any cruise ships were in port. We saw the ships, then decided to stay on Galveston. I found this hotel, and am so happy we did. The hotel is beautiful. It is old, but not in a bad way....

Everything was fine except, we wanted to rent a move and was told that our Room was the only room in the Hotel that was not wired so we could rent movies. My wife and I was disappointed. But everything else was good. Terry and Cindy Petty

My friends and I had a great weekend here. The building is a well-maintained architectural wonder. The minute you step onto the grounds you are immersed in the feel of Galveston high life from decades ago. Yes, there are quirks. In our room, the tub was mounted above floor level and the toilet was somehow about an inch or two...
