“The Queen of the Gulf” – Historic Hotel Galvez
The only historic beachfront hotel on the Gulf Coast of Texas, our fully restored property bears the name of Bernardo de Galvez, who surveyed the area in 1786. In 1900, a hurricane devastated the city as the worst national disaster in history, claiming and estimated 6,000 to 8,000 lives. Central to the courageous rebuilding that followed was the construction of a 17-foot Seawall, Causeway to the mainland, and with the 1911 opening of Hotel Galvez, Galveston, Texas was reborn as a treasured vacation destination.
