Room was perfect. We really appreciated the complimentary bikes. Great pool to relax by. Swim up bar took a little time to get served but the bartender was friendly. Brunch was delicious and Kay was a great server!
We came to spend four wonderful days to celebrate 26 years of marriage. I have not been here in 35 years and the updates to the rooms are great. All of the linens are new and very comfortable and the room was very clean each...More

Happy Anniversary and thank you for the glowing review of Hotel Galvez & Spa. Keep in mind, we host our annual wedding vow renewal in June. Maybe you'll make a return visit. We hope to see you again soon.
The Galvez is absolutely beautiful. The employees were all very nice. Our room wasn't quite ready when we got there but they called as soon as it was so we could check in. I chose this hotel because my mom was in town and I...More
I was excited to try out Hotel Galvez for my anniversary and was extremely disappointed. For the price paid a room was quite small, the pool was unimpressive, and the customer service was abysmal. We ordered chips and guac as a snack by the pool,...More

$1-2 per bag should be good if you have the guys bring your luggage to your room. Some recommend $5 total, but the per bag rule is probably good. $5 might be too much for a small overnight bag and too little for a family... More
$1-2 per bag should be good if you have the guys bring your luggage to your room. Some recommend $5 total, but the per bag rule is probably good. $5 might be too much for a small overnight bag and too little for a family with lots of luggage. $2-5 is good for valet. Most of them are young guys. I know some recommend tipping your maid service...sometimes, I think where does it end? I will say, I'd probably be more tempted to tip the maid service well though because I generally see not-so-young women working these jobs that probably are not paid very well hourly. They didn't provide an envelope for maid tipping, so you could perhaps bring your own if you want to make sure they know it's for them or just leave it at the end of your stay on the nightstand. They are paid hourly, as all of these workers are with the exception of the bar/wait staff, but you can certainly tip $2 a night if it makes you sleep better. You can park yourself for free if you want to save money and bring up your own bags. I didn't use my car much at all while in Galveston, so self-parking was totally fine. I felt it was much less of a hassle. In general, it's probably fine to go with the low end of those estimates, as I'm almost positive these people are paid hourly. It's not like they are only working off tips. A phone call to the front desk should either deny or confirm that.
