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.

Well, the day arrived and I was off with anticipation. I was going to do a VIP tour of NASA. My hosts and guides Gabe and David were amazing - especially Gabe The tour took 5 hours and I turned up at the Centre, was given my Pass and briefing. The two guys met me there, and we were off. Phase 1 - we looked at the Saturn rocket. This thing is huge and I stood in ore at it- I could not believe that the 3 parts of the rocket are incompatible with one another, and ...
Today I woke at 230 and could not get back to sleep. I fiddled around a bit on my computer and finally nodded off again. At 9 I decided to hit the town - well sort of. There are not too many shops here. Mostly Electronics and NASA, but I did manage to find a housing development that I waked around. That was kind of fun to look at the houses that they think are normal over here - they are massive. ...
... to see if they had a Walmart and they did so we knew we could always stay there if we were stuck! After numerous calls through the day to find out there were no cancellations we headed to Walmart. As we arrived we couldn't believe what a great location it was, the beach was right across the street! When we started to look around the parking lot we thought how odd it was that there wasn't any ...

We also saw a giant Amazon river otter (the size of a medium dog). He was having a hoot playing with a plexiglass tube toy that was in his enclosure - pushing it around, slipping it on his arm, spinning around it. At the Chinese alligator swamp, ...
... we watched the weather news and discovered that Houston was virtually 'closed’. The early warnings of snow proved incorrect, but instead the moisture that fell, hit ground so cold that it froze on contact, some of the roads had as much as one and a half inches of black ice on them. Worst hit were the bridges and overpasses – of which there are many in the city, indeed they seem to have stacked the roads so high that it ...
