The did hair for me (bride), 6 bridesmaids, mother of bride, and flower girl. All beautiful!! And my makeup, beautiful! We had some scheduling conflicts... I had scheduled appointments for everyone and called back to confirm several weeks later, and somehow weren't on there. Almost had to do it all somewhere else. They should give priority to bridal party getting married at the hotel that same day over other customers... Also should give some sort of discount if you're getting married there..
Hair and makeup were done extremely professional and beautifully !

The Hotel Galvez is a beautiful hotel and venue for a wedding/reception. My winter (just before Christmas) wedding didnt even require much decorating because it was already so beautifully and elegantly decorated! Gina was our coordinator for the hotel and was so helpful! Her experience and expertise shines through when discussing the all the options available for weddings. We received so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful the venue was, how delicious the food was, and the fantastic bar (we had an open bar). The hotel guests were very respectful and didnt bother us or crash the wedding. My bridesmaids and I did receive many compliments on how beautiful we look as we walked from the photo location to the ceremony location. It was an awesome day!

Overall the service was good, my only complaint is my hair and makeup didn't make it to 9:30PM (I had gotten it done at 12:30).They were able to get 7 ladies hair and 5 makeup completed within 2 hours!

I had a trial run and then the lady left. They gave me a complimentary trial run with another stylist so that was nice!

I had my bridal hair and make-up done at The Galvez Spa, as well as hair and make-up for my three bridesmaids, and hair for four girls. I made our appointments on about a month's notice and was still able to get us all in for a three hour time span the afternoon of the wedding. All the ladies were super professional and had us looking absolutely beautiful! I only had a slight idea of what I wanted and gave my stylist some freedom. What she did was perfect for me! All my girls looked gorgeous! They also pampered us with champagne and water for the girls. We had a blast here!

Anyone who's been to the Hotel Galvez knows what an amazingly beautiful hotel it is and if I could do it all over again, of course I would choose it for our wedding venue! All of our wedding guests were just gushing about how gorgeous the architecture was. My review is based on solely on the valet service we received when arriving at the hotel. We arrived on a Saturday which is probably the explanation for the bad service, but seeing that our wedding was being held there (and the valet should have picked up on that because of the many "wedding related" items they helped us unpack and not to mention.. my wedding gown) I wish they would have treated us a little better. We were being completely rushed and were told that we needed to hurry and move our car out of the way before we had even unloaded everything. It just seemed a little unfair that we had to stress about such a simple thing as unloading our car when we should have enjoyed our arrival at the place we were getting married at the next day.

My husband and I looked at several places in Galveston before we looked at the Galvez. The moment we walked in I knew that the Galvez was perfect for us. Mrs. Gina was our coordinator and she was amazing. She walked through everything with us and then again when we brought my parents. She was on top of everything and when we had issues she helped work them out.

Kasey Morales is AMAZING. This was her first wedding to coordinate and she did a phenomenal job. I had no doubt about it. She immediately made us feel at ease and comfortable from the beginning. Her first impression will have a lastly memory in our hearts. She was concerned with making sure our day was just the way we wanted it. I could go on and on singing her praises . . . I'm happy we chose Hotel Galvez for our venue.

My wedding here was absolutely beautiful! Everything went very smoothly and the food was AMAZING! The only thing i wished was different was the dance floor was VERY small. I have a country family and the two stepping was a little difficult to do with the amount of people we had. Other then that, everything was beautiful!

Overall, the Hotel Galvez was great. They worked with us for the most part but that's because we had an awesome wedding planner/negotiator. One of the only negative things I can think of was on the day of the wedding, the hallway outside the ballroom smelled like fish (something must have spilled on the carpet the day before) and we asked if they could do something about it and I think they did but during the reception, the smell was still there. There were a few things I wish they would have worked with us more on but other than they, it was a great experience.
