Historical Traveler Reviews The Tremont House, A Wyndham Grand Hotel Galveston
THE place to go in Galveston
Everything was just wonderful. Friendly staff, beautiful rooms, great food. The settling is intimate and quiet. In my opinion, the best place to stay in Galveston.
Best company meeting ever!
I scheduled a week long company meeting at the Tremont. The staff was absolutely the most accommodating I've ever dealt with. They helped me with all of the details including off site outings. They made the meeting a success!
Saved the day!
We only had 2 days to celebrate our 24th anniversary. I made the mistake and made reservations at another hotel and regretted it. The morning of day 2 we checked out and went to The Tremont House Inn. When we walked through the door of the room we both smiled. This is what we were expecting to celebrate our special occasion. The room was beautiful, spacious , clean and airy, the king size iron bed was sooo comfortable and romantic. We also enjoyed the sunset on the rooftop seating area.The location of the hotel is ideal. We were in walking distance to many different types of restaurants and shops.The hotel has a small elegant restaurant where we enjoyed dessert that night after taking a carriage ride around the historic district.The Tremont House Inn saved the day!
It was fabulous!
I was more than pleased with the hotel. I got a great room rate by going through the hotel's own website, so that was really nice. The hotel staff were friendly, helpful, and efficient without being overbearing. I didn't miss not having a pool on the premisis. The hotel is within walking distance of everything in the Strand district. I'm looking forward to going back.
Beautiful Hotel - Highly Recommended!
This is definately a first class hotel. Beautiful rooms, spacious, comfortable and clean. The hotel staff was extremely friendly, housekeeping and valet staff were more than curteous and helpful. The rooms are not elegant, but have the class of a historic hotel. The mattress in the room was without a doubt the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. The hotel offers a romantic rooftop balcony overlooking the city of Galveston that can't be beat. This was a favorite spot of ours! The only problem during our week at The Tremont was the 5:45 AM sanitation trucks that came down the alley each morning. The rooms facing The Strand are the rooms over the alley and there is very little in the way of sound-proofing to keep the truck's noise out. You can count on being awakend by them each morning. But, the beds are soooo comfortable, you'll simply fall back asleep with no problem. A first class romantic hotel I would recommend to anyone.
Loved the Tremont
This hotel was just beautiful! The rooms were so clean and large, I felt like I went back in time.The staff were so helpful and friendly.
Very nice, only small problems
The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are very nice - high ceilings, marble tile in the bathroom, comfy bed. But there were some minor problems. The first room I was given smelled like vomit. I asked for another, and they promptly moved me. Also, in some rooms, the TV is not convenient to watch from the bed. Also there is no free parking; you have to pay $10 a day for valet, and some of the busboys hover waiting for a tip.
It's located in walking distance of everything on the Strand and the cruise ship terminal. The rooms are very nice; there are towel warmers in the bathrooms. They're not what you'd find in a bed & breakfast, but they're historic and well-maintained. Since there are very choices for bed & breakfasts in that part of the island, this is your best choice for something along those lines. Other than the guest rooms, the facilities weren't particularly impressive - no pool, no fitness center, average-looking lobby, etc. This is the tradeoff for a historic hotel, of course. If you're looking for an attractive lobby and grounds, check out the historic Galvez on the seawall. If you want nice rooms right on the Strand, the Tremont is the place.
The Tremont House Rocks
My husband and I have stayed at the Tremont House several times. It is clean, the rooms are double most hotel rooms, the staff courteous and best of all, located in the heart of Galveston's historic "Strand". We will continue to stay at and recommend The Tremont House
My husband and I stayed at the Tremont House in April and it was fabulous. They have a beautiful and elegant lounge offering complimentary cheese and crackers in the early evening. The rooms were beautiful and the beds were the most comfortable I have experienced in a hotel. I will definetely visit this location again.

... rotting outside the Smithsonian in Washington, until restored and now housed at the space centre, indoors. Then back to the centre to look at shuttles, moon buggies and more . Touched a 3.5 billion year old piece of moon rock!!! Back through Galveston, then along the Seawall Boulevard. A 17 foot high, 10 mile long sea wall protects the city. Arrived at Galveston State Park, camped next to the water, just back from the sea. ...

Then we saw lots of oil donkeys as we approached the coast. Shipping on an inland canal, protecting oil ships from the sea.
We camped at High Island. It is high because it is on a salt dome, which is associated with finding oil underneath. It is also a bird sanctuary for migrating water birds.
The camp had lots of noisy birds, beautiful iridescent blue on black, called ...
... beach in Galveston. We picked up a pizza from Mario's Ristorante who's slogan on their sign says, "We speak very little English but we make the very best pizza". It was great and we enjoyed it outside at the campground. We watched a beautiful sunset by the campfire and then settled in for the night.
Since our arrival at the state park we noticed tons of little black bugs ...
61 degrees this morning, but very foggy. We finally got to take a walk along the beach, in the fog. :)
After several blocks along the Seawall, we did a big square and walked thru the neighborhood. It's a mixture of some nicely restored houses, some okay houses, and a lot of pretty shabby houses. I guess a typical beach neighborhood. It was interesting because as we left the seawall area, the fog subsided, but ...
