We stayed one night at the Galvez for just a quick getaway. All the staff was very helpful and wonderful, they all made us feel like royalty. At check in we got a room upgrade! Which was awesome because stuff like that never happens to us. My husband and I enjoyed drinks at the bar and loved our waitress Lois...

I go to the Galvez often. Whether a day trip or a night over, I always go to this hotel. The service is impeccable and a great place to have a drink. Spa is amazing! Special shout out to Kenya who went above and beyond to help me at my last stay this past summer. She was so friendly and...

I was recently discriminated against at this hotel because of a brain disorder that I have. I won't get into the details but she traumatized me. My disability is protected under the ADA and would hate to file charges against the hotel in the county court. That would be a lawsuit that could cost up to 110,00 dollars. Please contact...

This historic hotel offers top notch service from check-in to check out. Everyone was so courteous. It is a beautiful historic property and grounds. The pool area is private and very well done. The hotel food is excellent. The beds have been up graded since my last stay, and by upgraded, I mean Tall. I had to stand on tip-toe...

This is an historic hotel, build around 1910. The public spaces in the hotel, at ground level, are very pleasant. The food service was quite good. The ocean is directly in front of the hotel, just across Seawall Boulevard, and the water is easily visible from the hotel. Internet was included in my booking (which was made for me by...

The heated pool and nicely designed and maintained hot tub makes this a top pick for us. Right on the beach gives immediate access and beautiful views from the hotel. They also have a free shuttle to the Strand which is great to free you up for a fun and safe night out not having to drive. The staff here...

We have been to Hotel Galvez several times now and it continues to impress! From the moment you drive up the service begins. Valets greet you with a smile and unload your car and take it valet parking for you. You walk up to the door and greeters are there with a smile opening the door. This last time it...

Love the hotel, can't beat the location, history and atmosphere. Service great, as usual. Really need to upgrade the oversight on maintenance. Paint on carpet, poor repairs take away from what would otherwise be "GRAND"

Common spaces interesting and welcoming, service great, beds outstanding, parking good, located across street from beach, and the historic perspective is well done. We enjoyed the restaurant and bar on New Year's Eve.
