We have an awesome one night stay here. Everyone that works here was very helpful. Parking was across the street. Location was ideal. Power was out for a few hours, and back-up generator was on but it wasn't a big deal since there's so much to see of Galveston.

This wonderful, historic hotel was a great place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I enjoyed seeing the collection of old photos and memorabilia in the basement -- it was quite fascinating. The staff were all very friendly and polite. Will definitely stay there again!

I had outstanding service when shopping for a swimsuit today. The staff in the gift shop were so pleasant and welcoming. Amy was especially helpful and patient in searching for colors, sizes, and styles. Great experience!!

My husband and I needed a diversion and we decided that we wanted a seaside experience. Galveston is a reasonable jaunt from North Texas and we decided to stay at the Galvez for its history and proximity to the beach. Back in the day, my parents stayed at this venerable hotel from time to time. We were very pleased with...

Worst hotel experience I have ever encountered. Our initial contact with the front desk was not good (the clerk would not talk to my mother who wanted to put all charges on her credit card), the service at the bar and the restaurant was very slow (13 minutes just to get a drink from the bar), restaurant staff did not...

Please accept our sincere apologies for the billing issues you mentioned. We hope it has since been resolved. Please note that if charges for incidentals are put on a debit card - there is a temporary hold. If no charges are made during the stay, the charge is refunded and it can take several days. This is a standard practice.

Just a great old hotel, with modern amenities. Across from a huge long beach. You can walk or run for miles. Pool and hot tub were great. Service good. We only ate breakfast/buffet and it was excellent. Can't vouch for lunch nor dinner.

This brunch reminds me of some of the best hotels around the country with an excellent layout, well prepared food and great service. We arrived without reservations and the desk made room for us. Crab legs,boiled shrimp, carved prime rib, and fresh pasta were the items we sampled although there were many others available.

Congratulations and thank you for choosing Hotel Galvez for your honeymoon. We are pleased you had a romantic weekend getaway. We hope to see you again next year; if not sooner.

Made a reservation via their mobile website and then quickly cancelled it for an event that we had coming up in a few months. Event was last weekend and I and another guest both have charges for 'no shows'. I don't have a confirmation or cancellation email that they sent because I made the change so quickly.
