Following the initial excitement on seeing the Grand structure things went down hill. Initial room was lovely but was at the lift and with a small child we did not want this noise. We were moved to another room which was very small and had a tiny bathroom. Where they planned to put the rollaway for the little one ?I...

We are sorry that you were disappointed with your stay at the hotel. While it's impossible to address room size due to the historic nature of the hotel, we'll make sure that staff is aware of the issues at the pool. We hope that you'll reconsider and give us another try.

The Galvez Hotel surely is the Gem of Galveston. Built in 1910 (and newly renovated in 2010) it takes you back to a time of elegance and grandeur. The whole experience is first class~the grounds, hotel, staff, rooms, and the Spa. My sisters and I and our daughters spent the weekend at the Galvez and enjoyed every minute of it....

My wife and I stayed here July 14-17 2015. Upon arrival the classic look of the hotel itself was very impressive and sophisticated. We checked in fairly quickly due to the fact that we pre-paid on hotels.com. The rooms typically run up to $300 a night but we were able to get ours for around $170 a night. There was...

Fantastic hotel. The staff was welcoming and attentive. The menu in the restaurant was limited and pricey. Breakfast was great. Location fantastic and the free garage parking was a bonus.
