We stayed at the Beautiful Galvez for my Bachelorette party during Mardi Gras weekend. The staff was surprisingly accommodating towards us and even provided a shuttle for safe transportation to and from the Mardi Gras festivities. The hotel was beyond gorgeous and would definitely stay there again!

My room was fine,intel the AC started blowing hot air on 70 degrees. The sun came in at 630 am from a small window with no blinds,and having to use a chair to keep the curtain close on the big window. The t.v. stop working for about 10 min. The pool and spa was great.

My husband stayed here overnight as a quick getaway. It's such a lovely place. The room was very clean and comfortable and had a great view of the Gulf. It didn't hurt that it was a spectacular day. The History of the hotel is fascinating and the hall of history on the lower level has some great photographs and artifacts....

Another pleasing stay at a grand old hotel. Well cared for property. Communal spaces were large and comfortable. Complimentary bike rentals to explore the island. Grounds were maintained to perfection. Will definitely stay at this hotel again in the future.

The Hotel Galvez is a lovely hotel. My husband and I loved the ambiance and the history behind the building. Every single staff member, and I mean every single one, was helpful and kind, with absolutely no bad attitudes anywhere to be found. The reason I'm ranking this hotel a three has everything to do with the room itself. I...

An absolutely beautiful turn of the century hotel. Mesmerized by its beauty, we love coming here. But this time I felt the bed we slept in was tiny. I could not move and was on the edge. This never bothered me before. Just a comment from this stay.
