“Nice place to stay neat Strand area but no pool or kid activities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

Here on business and wife accompanied. While meeting she shopped the Strands unique shops. It is an older style hotel with character one block away from The Strand and not far from several restaurants like Fishermans Wharf, Willie Gs, Jimmy Johns, starbucks, Luigis, etc. Rooms ceilings are crown molding with ceiling fans and about 20 ft high. Nice amenities including wifi. Bar and small grill which seemed a little higher than surrounding places. We did not know there was no pool here until arrival but guests can use sister hotel The Galvez if desired. Four floors with some rooms overlooking inside atrium and others looking over street. Parking is a bit scarce so you either pay to valet park $17 day or leave car on street and pay city meter $11. We valeted. All staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay again if wanting Strand area.

Thank you for your detailed review on your stay at The Tremont House. It is good to read that your wife was able to enjoy shopping and dining nearby. As you mentioned, The Tremont House does not offer a pool but Tremont House guests can enjoy access to the pool, spa and restaurant at the nearby Hotel Galvez & Spa. Our hotel also offers a courtesy shuttle for guests. You had also mentioned activities for children. There are several family friendly attractions near the hotel including the Galveston Railroad Museum, Pirates! Legends of the Gulf Coast, Haunted Mayfield Manor, Galveston Harbor Tours, BayWatch Harbor Tours, Jet Boat Thrill Rides and other sites. If you want to drive to family oriented attractions, you'll want to visit Schlitterbahn WaterPark and Moody Gardens. We hope that you stay with us again soon.

This is an update from previous review, and the Tremont House is still the place to stay in Galveston. We went for a quick trip to celebrate my wife's birthday. Booked the room through the AARP Expedia site. The room was quiet, cool and comfortable. We got a late night brownie and ice cream from the restaurant by the lobby to take up to our room. But the real surprise came when we got home and found we still had one of the keys to the room. Okay, now we've all stayed at places that charge a fee if you forget to turn in the key. So I called the hotel told them of my discovery and double checked the address so I could mail the key back to them. The girl at the front desk verified that I had the right address but then added, "There's no charge for the key...just keep it till you come back." Service at the Tremont is wonderful--before, during, and after your stay. We'll be back.

Room Tip: If possible, ask to stay on the 3rd or 4th floor if you are a light sleeper--and try not to stay ove...
