Galveston Getaway

We wanted a short anniversary getaway and this was just the ticket. Just 6 hours away and elegant living. We always choose the older, majestic hotels. The Hotel Galvez meets that criteria. We really enjoyed finding out about the grand past of Galveston.

Great location and staff

The view from the front of the hotel is fine. The Pleasure pair is off to one side if you want to see the Coney island of Texas view, or you can look straight out and see nothing but the ocean. the history of the hotel is the history of Galveston. Complete with ghosts. The staff makes you feel totally cared for. i would return here in a minute. And the Spa...WOW!!

Great Trip

Upon arrival, I was impressed with the appearance of the hotel. It's very upscale. All of my encounters with the staff were very courteous and professional. The room was very modern, clean and comfortable. I was also very happy with the closeness of the hotel to the beach, Pleasure Pier and local restaurants. We were able to walk to most places. The only negative thing I can say about the hotel, is that the walls are very thin. We were able to hear our neighbor's tv and conversations every night.

Great Hotel

This is a great location at great rates for a 4 star. The rooms are a little small but that lends to the historic charm. The pool bar and pool have been expanded since I have been here years ago, and my friends said the spa is top notch. They have a valet if not busy that can run you up the block to Strand or restaurants. Definately, will be back. Service very professional.

If you stay at the Galvez, leave your chairs and umbrellas, and just walk across to the beach and rent them all set up.

Beautiful Resort Hotel

It was a beautiful, old hotel that is totally modern. Rooms are a little smaller as in old hotels, but definitely large enough, and the high ceilings were so elegant. Beautiful view of the bay. Wonderful staff, great pool area, nice fitness room, and the staff was nice and very helpful.

Beautiful Hotel

This is a beautiful grand old hotel that has been updated for today. The fitness room was very nice and the pool and hot tub were beautiful with all of the palm trees and wonderful lounge chairs. The rooms on the bayside have a great view. Nice lounge.
