Very Comfortable

Very nice and comfortable. Paid $40 extra to upgrade to Gulf view, but the room actually faced sideways. The Gulf was only visible if you were standing right in front of the window and looking to the side.

Amazed about the price per room but...

Layed in the cool comfortalble cotton sheets but would have liked to have a comforter within reach, should I like one, so I didnt have to locate it. Valet on arrival was slow to react - in my opinion benchmarking of your competitors. First impressions set my perception of any of business within 2-3 seconds of entering that enviroment. Liked the history embedded in the stucture such as the "old postal service system" located next to the elevators but wasn't sure if it was operational or a simple relic system". It was nice! Would have liked to have been told or at least have a sign located by those bikes to let the customer know they were availiable for a fee or part of the stay. We would like to "go native" so that we had could immerse ourselves in the culture. Overall not bad but would have expected more of "Disney experience" based off your website information. jmh i

Excellent stay- even during spring break

Excellent stay and worth every dime. Secure parking in a garage (fenced in) let me know that they actually care about security. This might be a little extra money but worth every penny.

Beautiful Remodel

We have enjoyed our brief stays at the Hotel Galvez for many years. The decor has also improved the luxury aspects of the room and especially the bathroom. The rooms and hall are odorless, whereas, they used to smell a little dank and beachy. Would love to move the shower back to our home! The furnishings are beautiful and have special touches, such as the coordination of the lamp design with decorative ceramics that remind you of the beautiful glass mosaics in the shower in ocean colors.

Not so nice Hotel

A/C didn't work, so they moved us to a smaller room and did not adjust our rate because we prepaid. Maintenace people were not very helpful. Front Desk attendant [...] was very nice. After the room change the towels in the new room looked like they had poop on them.

Classic Galveston Hotel

A few things went wrong at the hotel, but the staff quickly found solutions for each issue. The hotel is still recovering from the huge blow it took from Ike, and it's understandable things aren't perfect yet.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to Murdoch's across the street in the evening for drinks while watching and listening to the waves. It is a must-do.
