A sparkling vision of Victorian elegance rising from the sand and surf, the Hotel Galvez - A Wyndham Grand Hotel, was known as the "Queen of the Gulf" on the day she opened in 1911. For nearly a century, this charming hotel has been the choice of guests as demanding and diverse as Teddy Roosevelt, Howard Hughes and Frank Sinatra.
Enjoy elegant guest rooms full of delightful touches like marble bathrooms, hand decorated walls and views of the Gulf. If you need to keep in touch with the world, modern conveniences like high-speed Internet access and cordless phones make it easy.
When it's time to relax, sunbathe, swim or ride horseback along the beach. Enjoy your favorite cocktail at our swim-up bar. Or head out to explore the pleasures of this historic city. We're just a trolley ride away from downtown Galveston, galleries, museums and the delightful shops and restaurants of the Strand Historic District. When it's time to depart, Houston Hobby Airport is only 45 minutes away.
Come to the Hotel Galvez and experience a world of grace and comfort you thought was gone forever.
Please note: Due to the historical nature of this hotel, we have chosen to become a non-smoking environment.
