We apologize for any inconvience. The hotel has a 72 hour cancellation policy meaning that a reservation may be cancelled more than 72 hours prior to arrival unless it is an advance purchase. If it is less than 72 hours, a guest is charged for one night. An advanced purchased offers no refund as its is connected with a discount....

This hotel is beautiful. It is an historic hotel and has real charm. I have stayed here twice in January for conferences. The first time we had no view, but the second time, I requested a gulf view and they were able to provide me with a lovely room with an amazing view. They have a fully stocked bar area,...

The hotel is nice, luxurious and definitely hit the "wow" factor with the kiddos. We only booked our stay here to use the cruise parking. I know for a fact that I had booked the cruise parking package, yet when we checked in, they insisted that we hadn't. We had to pay $18 to park, no biggie, but still, I...

We are sorry to hear about the issue with your cruise shuttle. We appreciate you letting us know and will make sure to address with staff. Our staff should have done a better job in communicating the need to make a shuttle reservation. Also, your email confirmation should have included your package. Thank you for sharing your feedback.

We booked this hotel to take my 87 year old mother-in-law somewhere for Thanksgiving Eve. She is from west Texas so thought seeing the historic Galvez would be a treat. Because of the price, I booked the city view room. We were put in room 207. Now, I know this is an old historic hotel and the rooms would be...
