If you are into historic hotels, you will probably love this place. Friendly staff, nice lobby and very interesting museum on the history of Galveston on the bottom floor.

Thank you for the insight on your stay at Hotel Galvez & Spa. You will be pleased to know that we are in the process of renovating our bathrooms over the next few months. We hope you'll consider giving us another try in the future or consider our sister hotel, The Tremont House.

We were here for a girls overnighter to celebrate a birthday. Everything from a room standpoint was perfect. The bar area service was very slow but it was very busy due to the Christmas tree lighting that evening. I would recommend the Galvez to family and friends.
