Nestled in the heart of Galveston Island's Strand HistoricDistrict, this European-style hotel combines 19th centurycharm with all the modern conveniences. Within walkingdistance to more than 100 shops, galleries, restaurants and historical attractions. Just a short trolley ride from the front door to the water's edge. Only 45 minutes from William P. Hobby Airport in Houston.
I loved the musicians in the lobby
I wish that the restaurant had more of a breakfast menu
It was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the boutique aspect and it was within walking distance to restaurants.
It didn't have its own pool.
Location was great and staff was amazing
Our stay was ok except for one major problem. We returned to our room one day to find a blade of the fan laying on our pillow. The blade snapped of at the metal joint and if we would have been asleep it would have been really bad since the fan was on. Got a new room but worried that night it could happen again and affected our sleep.
Rooms, shuttle service, use of pool at Hotel Galvez
The staff was very accommodating and helpful.
The live jazz music was great... but it wasn't so great when I was trying to sleep
The room sizes were good.
The pictures are deceiving in that it looks like there is a pool on site when you actually have to take a shuttle to another hotel. There isn't a restaurant on site only a coffee shop. The rooftop bar is only open after 5:00. The lighting in the room and bathroom was terrible.
The staff is fantastic! Very accommodating. The room was very comfortable and the bed was one of the best I've slept in.
The only thing I didn't like was having to go back to work.
