The Tremont House, A Wyndham Grand Hotel
Travel Blogs from Galveston
It was a big drive to Texas, the lone star state. We were on the road about 7 hours again and arrived to our destination for the night, Galveston Island around 5 in the evening. It was extremely windy and continued to be so for the whole night, making tent pitching, cooking dinner and even sleep very ...
... I nibbled on both but was most impressed with the crab's legs.
Dave did a geocache adjacent to the pier where he dropped off the second RBLR TRAVEL-BUG and the two others he brought over from UK. Dave then went for a 30-mile ride down the Galveston Seawall to Jamaica Beach with Dave S to find another geocache in amongst the sand dunes. He found it and dropped of his third and final RBLR Travel Bug. There was a wee bit of treasure in there which he took ...
... their flags and cheering loudly. With the ride going so slowly as they prepared for the final arrival (into League City AL Post 554) it made for the tiredness, aches and pains of a very long journey to melt away in the euphoria of the reception received.
We all met up again and LJ,who was beaming from ear to ear despite his physical discomfort, immediately sought to make sure that Dave was okay as he saw him fall ...
Received confirmation today (July 11th, 2013) that our good friend Dale has passed through customs and will be boarding his new home this evening! Post was made for July 5th as this is the day we dropped off our dear friend at the port in Galveston.
Next stop for the car: Guayaquil, Ecuador.
... Most of these homes looked new, so I assume most had been remodeled in some way after Hurricane Ike in 2008. There was still evidence of the devastation across this area; some homes left to decay on the far side of the beach road. John saw one sign at a condominium on the Galveston beach advertising units for $295,000.
We stayed at another City RV park, because it was also right on the beach. But, ...

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.
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.
