“Gorgeous Hotel, Very Gracious Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Spent several weekdays during summer 2012 at this hotel. Beautiful decor, amazing rooms, very clean. Honestly one of most beautiful hotels we have ever stayed in. We travele with 3 teenagers and they said the hotel's beauty is something they will always remember. Manager overheard our rooms were mixed up slightly and immeiately proceeded to make us feel special and compensated with gorgeous suites. Very relaxing bar area and small breakfast area but all good. All staff very courteous. This hotel is located in beautiful downtown. Cute stores and restaurants all over. Beautiful architecture. We spent a very relaxing, quiet week in Galveston. Hotel does not have a pool or spa but there is valet service to their sister hotel, the historic Hotel Galvez to enjoy these. See hotel website an you absolutely get what you see. Just beautiful.

Room Tip: We reserved two rooms and had absolutely no problem with either.

The Tremont is a very nice old-style Hotel. During the peak season the prices are a bit high, But during the off-season a nice room can be had for a very reasonable price. Our room was small but immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. The location in the Strand district allowed us to walk to both dinner and breakfast the next morning. This was a refreshing change from the cookie-cutter motels on the seawall.

The Tremont House is located in the "Strand" district just a few blocks from the ship docks. There are several good restaurants nearby and great little shops to browse. Beautifully renovated buildings give this area a special character. There is a wonderful "Terrace" bar on the roof overlooking the city.

I traveled with a group of friends to stay overnight prior to leaving on a short cruise the following morning. Tremont House will keep your vehichle while you sail, shuttle you to the dock and will be there waiting upon your return. The only drawback was that we had to drive our cars to their beautiful sister hotel, The Galvez, to leave our cars for parking while we were gone. This historical hotel on the Gulf of Mexico is worth seeing, also, and has a nice dinning room for lunch which made up for the inconvenience of the extra drive.

All of our group enjoyed our stay at the Tremont House and I would recommend it highly.
