Pros: The location to the beach, restaurants & shopping is great, easy walking distance. The ambience was nice in the lobby area. The pool area is beautiful & privately secluded from public viewing.The valet gentlemen were very accommodating & helpful. Beautifully maintained hotel & grounds. The interesting history will keep you intrigued while visiting. Historical building with beautiful detail you just don't see much of anymore. Beautiful lobby to spend a relaxing afternoon, comfortable area. The chairs on the lawn are nice for a evening under the stars. The bicycles are nice to have use of. The ammenties are plentiful if able to be enjoyed.
Cons: The room size is so very disappointing. The bathroom is terrible, no vanity space for toiletries, very uncomfortable. To attempt to "get ready" in the bathroom is just fustrating. No light in the closet. The chair by the entry door is hit every time you come & go... aggravating. The value for the money is non existent. This was a bday trip planned & paid for months ago. Decided upon arrival that a dbl bed room would be helpful (group of friends) asked to be switched from king city view to dbl bed room any view, didn't matter... they would do it for an additional $50. *now here's the rub, the hotel scheduled a convention the same days of our visit, the kitchen, pool, bar & grill were CLOSED to the non convention guests at 4pm... ONLY room service available for the standard fees (no discount).***I DIDN'T RECEIVE A DISCOUNT FOR LIMITING THE AMMENTIES, YET IF I DESIRED TO SWITCH ROOMS, THEY WOULD FOR $50 MORE! ☆What a way to treat the guests... who ALL paid non discounted rates & were treated disrespectfully. NEVER AGAIN WILL I BOOK AT THE HOTEL GALVEZ. It's a beautiful place, with a great location but that's about it.

Pros: Comfortable bed, clean hotel, parking was included, great location. Staff was friendly
Cons: Breakfast wasn't included and housekeeping cleaned well but did not pay attention to detail. For example, they left a used water glass, the ironing board and iron in the middle of the room (I had left it out to cool off), and didnt refill the tea bags nor lotion that I used.
