Frank Sinatra slept here

Tired of all the modern city hotels and ready for some island time with Jimmy Buffet music and one of the grandest hotels anywhere. Hotel Galvez is less than a tank away and harks back to much simpler yet grander times.

Hotel Galvez named after an 18th century governor of the Louisiana Territory Count Bernardo de Galvez has recently gone through an 11 million dollar face lift restoring the hotel to its' early 20th century splendor.
The hotel features 231 rooms many with spectacular ocean views a tropical veranda marble bathrooms and a historical charm that may feel more like Cuba or Puerto Rico than Texas.
Developed by St.Louis architectural firm Mauna and Russell and funded by local businessmen committed to repairing Galveston's commerce after the United States worst natural disaster the Great Storm in 1900. In the 20's and 30' s the hotel flourished and hosted presidents Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and of course Texan Lyndon Johnson.General Douglas MacArthur, Frank Sinatra , and Jimmy Stewart split the sheets at the Galvez. In 1995 preservationists George and Cynthia Mitchell turned this fair lady into one of the finest places you will visit. The millennium celebration awaits you.
