Our room was okay. It was clean and pretty, but small. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean, everything smelled nice. We had problems with our key, when we checked in and went to our room, our key did not work so they switched us to a new room. We went down to the pool, which was fine, and then back to our room, where our key did not work again. The front desk were nice about it and gave us a new key while calling the guy to fix it. (That's the only complaint)

Took my Husband for his Birthday Dinner on Friday, Dec 1st and had a fabulous time! Nanette was our Server and made this special dinner even more memorable! We enjoyed the wonderful prime rib dinner with all the trimmings. Nanette brought out an incredible, huge slice of key lime pie for his special dessert. We enjoyed taking the hotel "museum tour" on the spa level and seeing all the great old pictures of Galveston and reading the histories. Thank you, Galvez - we will be back SOON!!

Stayed only one night but it was a good one, bedding was comfortable one, and the room amenities are quite adequate. The dining room menu was varied and the meal we had was well seasoned. Easy to get around to some venues if you want to walk.
Give it a try.

My family was booked on a Disney cruise out of Port of Galveston. When we were researching a place to stay the night before embarkation, we ran across the stay/cruise package at Hotel Galvez. This worked out perfectly! We had a great room the night before our cruise. The next day, we rode the shuttle to the port and left our car in a secure place at the hotel. When we got back to the port, we called the hotel and the shuttle came immediately. The driver was so great...loaded all our bags and took our valet tickets to call ahead so our vehicle would be waiting. One thing I will say is to be sure and schedule your shuttle asap! We waited to call the next morning and the earlier shuttles to the port were already booked. It was not a problem and we got there in plenty of time, but you might want to book early for the time you need. I'm sure there are other hotels in town that do the same thing, but...it's the Hotel Galvez!!! And, by the way, the cost was comparable to a hotel night at a chain hotel plus the cost of secure parking at the port.

Room tip: Obviously rooms that face the Gulf are spectacular! However, others views are very nice as well.
