A Question of Value – Our stay over the weekend was probably nearing the end of the school holiday season, and the reservation folks would not budge off the $199 fare for a standard king. When considering the New Orleans Ritz-Carlton's standard king rate was $135 for the same weekend, you have to raise the value question. I don't pinch pennies, and I realize hotels have to make hay when they can. The hotel service and food at Bernardo's were excellent, but the small rooms and flat pillows just wouldn't let me forget about the rate ! Maybe I'm getting old.
Beautiful Historic Hotel – We loved historic Hotel Galvez!! It was built in 1911! The rooms are a bit small but are lovely. The pool is one of the best I've ever seen-gorgeously landscaped, kid-friendly baby pool with mushroom fountain and kiddie pool furniture, and a swim-up Pool Bar for Mom & Dad! Bernardo's Restaurant was excellent! Try the fresh shrimp & spinach omelettes for brunch! Hotel Galvez is close to everything on the island and the service was outstanding! I was impressed with all of the history in the hotel and Galveston Island in general- much more than just a beach destination! Our family would highly recommend Hotel Galvez!!!
Stay along the Seawall – One of the most spectacular structures on Galveston island since its makeover, the Galvez is the place to stay when you're visiting this Gulf Coast getaway.
