We have stayed at hundreds of hotels in 6 continents but can truly say we found our favorite on this first trip to Galveston.
The hotel is impressive as you drive up. There were always at least two valets to greet and assist. Up a short flight of marble stairs is a small but friendly and effecient reception desk that further opens onto a stunning 4 storey closed atrium to which many of the rooms do open onto.
The lobby area is black and white marble with a huge lovely antique rosewood bar and great seating area which comes in handy when it's Thursdsay night jazz and so many locals and guests attend. The musicians are first class and the management serving so many complimentary finger foods, such as wild mushroom and goat cheese pizza, Thai chicken, roasted vegetables, etc, was wonderful. We'd planned to only stop in but stayed the whole night.
Our room, as requested, was quiet and with a view. We entered room 340 and were delighted. It is a large room facing onto the front street overlooking the rooftops. It has 12 foot ceilings, historic detailing, king brass bed and 3 very tall windows with beautiful floor to ceiling blackout draperies in a black and floral print. The bathroom is made up of 3 areas, closet, vanity and tub and toilet area. All done in 7 striped styles of black and white tile.
The seating area was on a Persian type black rug with two chairs and cocktail table which we were thrilled held a bottle of wine and selection of cheese and fruit that helped celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. (Thank you management and staff!) There was also a small writing desk and separate coffee station table. We loved our room!
The staff were delightful. Always helpful no matter what the request. Breakfast in the Cafe was great. Morning papers, Starbucks coffee selections, small but very nice menu.
The area around Tremont is perfect too. It's a block off Strand, the main area, and walking distance to so many fine restaurants and bars. Short walk to the cruise ship docks and other boating areas. The seawall is a short mile away and the sister hotel, The Galvez, was equally as welcoming when we stopped to check it out. Yes, they're by the ocean but we discussed it and thought our choice was even better due to the proximity of so much.
We loved Galveston and the Tremont!
