The Galvez is a charming hotel and I had a great time. All the staff were friendly and helpful. I was particularly impressed with the spa which was my main reason for going. I am going through some medical issues and needed a getaway. The caliber of the spa was really outstanding - the services offered, the staff, etc. I...

the property was built a long time ago and it shows. If you like nostalgia then this is the place to stay. the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very small and there are no amenities. You should visit this place once if you stay in Galveston.

We stayed during the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Our room (gulf view) was very nice. We ate in the bar that evening and highly recommend the roast beef sliders and bacon wrapped shrimp. We agreed, that the award winning gumbo was mediocre. But the excellent drinks and service more than compensated for thegumbo. Next day we enjoyed the spa...

Happy Anniversary and thank you for choosing to celebrate at Hotel Galvez & Spa. We are pleased that you enjoyed your bar bites and we are disappointed that our gumbo wasn't up to par. We appreciate your feedback. Please note that the hotel hosts an annual wedding vow renewal in June. We hope that you'll consider joining us.

Staff were delightful and very accommodating. Booked room to surprise my mother for her 70th birthday. The staff organised a huge piece of cheesecake with happy birthday written on it for my mom, who was over the moon! My only negative comment would be the initial reservation. It was a very bland experience and had I not researched the hotel...

Interesting to visit and stay at a historical hotel. Staff was friendly. Architectural features of hotel made you believe you had stepped back in time. I rated average because while staying there was different, I was disappointed in the very small room and less than average cleanliness of many of the fixtures and features.

I really love this property, but the room we were given this time seemed old. The toilet was an old toilet and my knees where around my ears. It was irritating. Not modern and the bed was horrible. I didn't report the problem because there were a couple of wedding and I figured I was screwed. Not to mention my...
