Hotel Galvez & Spa – Galveston, TX

Work & Travel

Company Description and Location: 

Galveston offers 32 miles of relaxing beaches, superb restaurants, top resort hotels, marvelous downtown shopping, numerous antique stores, incredible art galleries, fabulous entertainment and one of the largest and well-preserved concentrations of Victorian architecture in the country. Galveston is a small romantic island tucked deep within the heart of south Texas possessing all the charm of a small southern town and just 40 minutes south of the fourth largest city (Houston) in the United States. At 32 miles long and two and a half miles wide, most residents can’t remember the last time they visited the mainland and, if circumstances permitted, they would never leave.

At the historic Hotel Galvez, expect just a little more of everything. More history. More sunny Galveston days. More enjoyment. This gracious Galveston hotel was built in 1911 and after a multi-million dollar restoration; it still maintains so much of its original charm. Outside you’ll notice a sweeping circular drive and plantings similar to those found in the early 1900s. Inside you’ll see lovely gold leaf topped columns, a mahogany ceiling, and period stenciling. These details are part of what earned this property the name, “Queen of the Gulf”. In fact, we are steps away from the magnificent Gulf of Mexico here in historic Galveston.
