Dear Galvestonian Guests,

Recently The Galvestonian encountered a corruption in our reservations backup system. The issue has been resolved and we are now resetting the reservations database.

If you or someone you may know made a reservation for 2018, please contact us by email to reconfirm your reservation. Please send emails to or contact us by phone at 409-765-6161.

Please note that this issue was not a result of illegal intrusion, hacking or in any way a compromise of any data. It was a system configuration error and a resulting damage to our back-up storage which caused us to reset our reservation systems. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your help while we validate our system.

Kindest regards,
Sergio F. Ortiz
