Hotel Galvez & Spa


Celebrating 100 years of glamour, historic Hotel Galvez welcomes guests with towering palms and a grand lobby with twinkling chandeliers, high archways, and plush seating. If you’re staying on the fifth floor, you might encounter Audra, whose spirit remains at the hotel to search for her fiancé, who was thought to be lost at sea. Audra stayed often and would climb the ladder to a hotel turret to gaze over the water and wait for his return to the Port of Galveston. After a particularly severe storm, she received word that his ship, and its entire crew, were lost. For weeks, she continued to visit the turret. When her prayers went unanswered, she hanged herself. Tragically, the groom-to-be arrived at the hotel a few days later, ready for his wedding; 409/765-7721 or wyndham.com.
