We were planning to visit Galveston and were going to stay at one of the generic chain hotels. Fortunately, on our plane trip there I met a Houston native who recommended that we give the Galvez a try. I had never heard of it but decided to take a chance. I am so glad we did! What a beautiful place!...

We were in Room 638 which had a view of the Gulf. Room was well kept and very clean. Nothing very fancy. Room noise from adjacent room was very noisy. You could easily hear people talking and the TV. A door connects the two rooms. It was like the door was wide open. Thank goodness the people in the next...

I was returning to this grand old hotel to celebrate the One Hundreth Anniversary of my father's birth ... IN THE HOTEL.

Wow, it is so amazing that your father was able to celebrate his 100th birthday at his birthplace during the 1915 hurricane. We hope that you got a copy of our commemorative book which includes the letter from the general manager to your grandmother congratulating her. Please forward photos from the weekend to our concierge. We'd love to share them....

I was hesitant to stay here while traveling alone with two kids but I got such a good deal I couldn't resist. I have a soft spot for historic hotels and this one does NOT disappoint.
