“Great Place”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The staff is very helpful and nice. Great towncar to transport you. They aim to please. Rooms are clean and nice. A little pricy but worth it. Great place to land before your cruise. Swimming pool and spa are located in their neighboring hotel with no charge. I can't remember the name at this time. The Strand is within walking distance. Great breakfast within walking distance. Don't remember the name of that establishment either but there is a big Coca Cola sign outside...about 2 blocks away. Cruise ship pier is 2 blocks away. Went to a wedding at Bishops Palace. Great place for pictures. Drive from Hobby Houston airport is about 45 minutes away. Cruise ships charge approximately $32 one way for transfer. I recommend Carnival as my experience with Mariner of the Seas was just so so (food in the dining room really wasn't good nor was service) and I have heard the Magic's food is great as well as the slide. Mariner's ice show was good as well. Avoid their late night comedy show. It is terrible (vulgar) and believe me I am not a prude...it just wasn't funny. Sorry...I wanted to review the ship separately but wasn't given the option.

Thank you for taking time to post a positive review on your stay at The Tremont House and Galveston. The restaurant with the Coca Cola sign is Star Drug Star. It's just three blocks away and they offer a great breakfast and lunch. Also, try their malts next time. Our sister hotel - Hotel Galvez has the pool and spa. Tremont House guests enjoy signing privileges there too. Hope you stay with us again during your next cruise. Happy Travels!

This is a nice hotel thats walking distance to most everything on the Strand. There is a roof top bar and there is also a nice bar in the lobby with quite a bit of history associated with it. If your into history its a good place for a drink and ask the bartender to tell the story about where the bar came from. I read another reviewer comment that they stayed on Valentines day and were kept awake by the noise. My room was near the rooftop bar on Valentines day as well and we heard nothing but, we did not get to bed until around midnight. As a side note we paid around $150 for our room. In regards to the hotel staff they seem very genuine and helpful. This is about our fourth or fifth stay at this hotel and so far we have not had a bad experience. If your looking for a decent meal you might try Olympia Grill at pier 21. There are also several historic bars and pubs to check out. All and all a nice place for a quick weekend break.

Room Tip: I would steer away from the inside rooms. Those rooms will look down at the lobby/bar and you could...
