The Galvez is a beautiful old style hotel, and maybe Galveston''s answer to the Coronado in San Diego, though not quite as grand as that noble monument. It''s owned by the Wyndham group, so it can be pretty pricey, but it''s of an era when people really did things in style. Built in 1911, it''s been the place to stay for vips for many years and survived the major hurricanes quite well. The lobby is beautiful! There''s a nice small gift shop (not for the budget conscious) and the pool is great. It''s worth a look even if you don''t want to spend the money for an overnight stay.
