Overview

Known as "Queen of the Gulf," Hotel Galvez & Spa is an iconic property that has graced 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 outdoor area, boasting an expansive saltwater pool, whirlpool and plenty of lounge chairs.

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