We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Galvez. My friend and I stayed this summer. We each had a room that we shared with our two boys, ages 7 and 10. The rooms are not big, but they are not ridiculously small, either. And they are nice and the beds are really comfortable. The bathrooms are pretty small compared to...

During my September visit, I fell on a morning walk on the seawall near the hotel. I made my way back to the hotel with facial abrasions & contusions and a badly broken wrist. The moment the staff saw me, they jumped up to help. They got an ice bag and took me to the emergency room at the local...

We are so sorry to hear about your fall on the seawall during your visit to Galveston. We are proud that our hotel staff was able to jump in and help with this crisis. We hope that you'll give Galveston another try in the future after you are healed up.

I have stayed at the Hotel Galvez multiple times in the past year and each stay has been great. This stay was no different -- nice, clean comfortable room -- excellent service and superb location. The ambiance of the Galvez is charming--just like Galveston!

Clean, comfortable rooms and the staff is very considerate and kind. We have been staying at the Gálvez for years while in Galveston before we take our cruises. I love the fact I can leave my car at the hotel and know it is in good hands. Don't know about the other hotels and what they have to offer because...

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...

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...
