I attended a class in Texas City for work and decided to stay at the Tremont House. I chose this hotel based on it's reviews, hotel photos, and location near the Strand.
I found the hotel to be very clean and beautiful. l loved the vaulted ceilings. The furnishings and decor were upscale and elegant.
The location itself wasn't very exciting. The Strand wasn't quite as thriving as I expected but I did enjoy some of the nearby restaurants (namely Rudy and Paco as well as the Sky Bar Steak and Sushi.)
I have stayed in Galveston once before in the Hilton Island Resort. I did prefer staying on the Seawall but found the Tremont House to be a much nicer hotel. My husband visited the Galvez, the Tremont's sister resort, and I think we might try that resort the next time business brings us to Galveston.
Overall, I was pleased with the hotel.
