Known as "Queen of the Gulf," Hotel Galvez & Spa is an iconic property gracing the Texas coastline for over 100 years. Attracting both couples and families, this AAA 4-Diamond hotel is across the street from the beach where "there’s no sign of the area’s rowdy spring-break scene" (Travel + Leisure).

Celebrating the building's original architecture, guestrooms are on the smaller side, but their amenities "are as modern as they come" (U.S. News) and include complimentary Wi-Fi, docking stations and Simmons Smart Beds.

Named one of the Top 100 Brunch Restaurants in America by OpenTable diners, Galvez Bar & Grill is the go-to for local seafood and a renowned Sunday Champagne Brunch. Guests can enjoy poolside cocktails and Texas-style bites at the seasonal swim-up bar and grill.

A full menu of services is available at the tranquil day spa, but the true hub of relaxation is the expansive saline pool with a whirlpool and plenty of recliners.

To explore off-site attractions, the hotel offers bicycle rentals and a courtesy shuttle to the Strand Historic District and Pier 21.

Love having the bicycles for free and fishing poles! We swam up after hours at the bar in the pool and the waiter got us supper from the restaurant inside and brought it into the pool so we could eat in the pool anyway! Such fun!

We always book on a Tuesday or Wednesday when not crowded. Hotel staff has always given us an upgrade to ocean view when we we asked. This time around the person who checked us in, wasn't as accommodating as previous trips. We had to pay for upgrade.
