"The people at the front desk were nice! It’s a slightly out dated hotel but it’s got a charm to it. My only complaints would be the AC doesn’t get very cold at night and the towels are rough. But that just could be because we were sunburnt."…"

Galveston Beach Hotel

Other neighborhoods in Galveston

One of our favorite little weekend getaways is a quick 45 minute drive from Houston. The Hotel Galvez and Spa has been the grand hotel of the Galveston sea wall since 1911. Originally built to help Galveston tourism recover from the devastation of the great hurricane of 1900 that almost ended the life of this island city. Charming architecture, beautiful pool, great bars and amenities. Given its age and history it has more than a few ghost stories as well. The Hotel is a member of Historic Hotels of America, the official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
