Hotel Galvez offering a spooky special in October

Ghosts in Galveston

The Hotel Galvez & Spa wants to haunt you in luxury this month: The historic hotel in Galveston -- approaching its 100th anniversary -- is offering ghost tour package deals Thursdays and Sundays throughout October. The Dinner with the Ghosts Package is $179 for a Thursday night stay, and includes a ghost tour of the property, including use of an electromagnetic field detector and infrared thermometer; dinner for two at Bernardo's restaurant; and valet parking. The Ghost Brunch Package is $189 per stay, based on double occupancy, and includes Sunday night accommodations, the guided ghost tour, the popular Galvez Sunday brunch for two and valet parking. Perhaps you'll catch a glimpse of the Ghost Bride, reportedly spotted on the fifth floor, who met a tragic end in one of the hotel turrets.
