All I can say is WOW. What a beautiful hotel.
I'm a resident of Houston, and since Galveston Island is only about an hour away, my family has only taken day trips there. Fortunately, we had some out-of-town guest that wanted to spend a couple of days in Galveston, so for the first time, I booked a room for the trip. I can't believe what my family has been missing. I will never miss another opportunity to stay at the Tremont in the future.
The trip was perfect, and I've never said that about any trip. My family and our guest arrived in Galveston on a Thursday about 11:00 a.m. Unfortunately, check in at the Tremont is not until 4:00 p.m., but fortunately, since we had reservations at the Tremont, we had pool privileges at the Galvez (which is a sister hotel on the Seawall). The Galvez is just across the street from the East beach, so we spent the early part of the afternoon swimming and body boarding. When we had our fill of the sand and salt, we walked across the street to the Galvez pool, where the kids swam and we had cocktails. While everyone was enjoying their pool time, I drove over to the Tremont, which is about and mile away and checked everyone in. I then went back to the Galvez to rejoin the family. After we had enough of the pool, we drove over to the Tremont, which everyone in our party was impressed with. It has 15 foot ceilings, crisp white linens, beautiful hardwood floors, and wonderful architecture. How could we not be impressed? After everyone showered and changed, we walked a few block along the stand, which is just one street down from the Tremont, and had a wonderful dinner at Willie Gs. So not only did we have a wonderful day at the beach, which was walking distance from the Galvez, we also had a wonderful evening on the strand, which is walking distance from the Tremont.
I can't wait to go back!!!
