Never had a more pleasant or memorable hotel stay. EVERYTHING top shelf, including hotel's garaging car for the week we were gone on cruise--no additional charge, plus free delvery/pick-up at cruise terminal. Happy to extend FIVE STAR review.

Room Tip: Ask. Most accommodating staff.

My daughter recently had an interview at utmb and we accompanied her. We stayed at this Hotel and we were delighted with everything it offers. The lobby was beautiful. The staff at the front desk were beyond cordial and helpful. Everyone was eager to help in any way they could. We were on the second floor and we loved our room. Immaculate, high ceilings, lovely decor and spotless bathroom.I cannot say enough about this hotel. I am now convinced, after staying in other properties, that Wyndham is the way to go. Their properties can't be beat!

Room Tip: I can only say that our room on the 2nd floor was superior.

First-time stay for my wife and I. Large, lovely room. Very professional and helpful staff. Nice entertainment in the lobby bar, and a fun rooftop bar. An atmosphere of class without being stuffy.Location is excellent.

On a recent visit to Texas, my partner's cousin who lives in Galveston, suggested we have an evening drink at The Tremont - his favourite hotel. He said we could also take in the wonderful view from the rooftop. He warned us that it was expensive! We were disappointed to find that the rooftop was in fact closed, as happens on certain days, our fault, not theirs, we should have checked first. We ordered our drinks from the bar anyway and sat in our sumptuous seats and the friendly waiter brought our drinks over. It is a lovely hotel bar area, cosy, very comfortable, oozing class and sophistication. Everybody was warm and friendly and our bill for two delicious well filled glasses of wine and a margarita came to $21 - around £13. If like me you are used to paying London hotel prices, that sounds like pretty good value - hardly expensive. I am sure it would be a great place to stay.

We got a last minute reservation for one night during the Dickens celebration. Our room was impressive with the beautiful decor and super tall ceilings. Bath robes, blow dryer, iron and ironing board, 2-cup coffee maker, and a clock radio, wi-fi conx are included. It feels like you stepped back in time to the luxurious accommodations of the elite class of the 1800's. There is a atrium lobby that you can view from each of the 4 floors above. The glass elevators look out over this area as they rise and fall to each of the levels. Many times there is someone playing the piano is this area that also has a beautiful bar to fill your requests and a small cafe that also features a StarBucks for your favorite hot coffee drinks. Christmas choirs performed in the lobby also. Couches and comfortable plush chairs help you relax and people watch as "Dickens period" clothing and costumes awe and entertain you as they attend special balls and parties. Even the luggage that some people arrive with fit the time period that is being celebrated. Saturday and Sunday at Dickens right outside the doors are just waiting for you to discover all the mysteries and special finds to the sounds of mandolins, bagpipes and handbells. The hotel is located inside the gates of the "Dickens on the Strand" celebration and easy to return to for a quick rest or breather or to store your newly acquired treasures.
I've already booked next years reservation. Can't wait!

Room Tip: Request a room facing the street where the parades go by during "Dickens"
