          Location was excellent with beautiful view of the ocean.

          The hotel felt very unfriendly. Staff weren't particularly friendly or welcoming. I wouldn't stay there again.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The hotel was very accomodating and I was very excited to be able to reserve rooms for my friends to get together. We have been friends for 30 years, all have gone through many stages in our lives. Good times and bad but we have stayed friends for 30 years. It is nice to be able to celebrate that together. We hope to make this an annual trip. The staff was excellent, the restaurant was good and the rooms were very nice. We didn't get to take part in the spa but was able to tour it would be something we would take advantage of in the future. I hope I can take my husband back for a romantic weekend.

          Extremely welcoming

          I thought the chairs at the pool were not comfortable. I like to sit out by a pool and read. I kept sliding down.

          The staff was more than willing to accomodate our stay and to meet our travel needs. From the front desk to the restaurant staff, our stay was given the personal attention you expect from an upscale hotel.

          There is nothing negative I can say about our stay at Hotel Galvez. I wish we could have stayed longer.

          Nice location, historic hotel

          Thin walls, wedding party when we were there fighting in the hallway

          It was in a great location and we had a lot of fun at the pool.

          I think it is overpriced for the size of room and general accomodations. It was fun, but not quite worth $339/night.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Location was great!

          Room was found open when we returned in the evening. The tub did not drain and smelled like a sewer. Lastly when we checked in we had to have our first night as a city view instead of our ocean view that had been reserved.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          The Galvez has a very private pool and the hotel is walking distance to the new Pleasure Pier. Beach access is right across the street.

          My perception was that this hotel is being operated by adolescents who frankly do not care too greatly about their jobs. Foot washes/showers by pool were not operating and the staff thought it might be a good idea to rinse the ocean salt and sand off in the pool! Really? Gross! I did tell one young lady working the outside bar and she did report the showers not functioning and the next day one was operational. Yeah! However, management sent home all poolside employees when it rained and when your pool is open until 11:00 P.M. and you send home your bar and wait staff, that is bad business sense because the rain was brief and guests had to go into the lobby dripping wet if they were thirsty.

          My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Galvez for only one night, we got there late and left early the next morning, but the hotel was beautiful and very relaxing. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will go back.
