“My favorite place”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

It's a smaller size place, The rooms are excellent, and it's located convenient to the Strand area, as well as Market St and Post Office St. restaurants, galleries, shops, Pier 22. Several silly issues. The rooms aren't cheap. One silly, ditsy, full-of-herself, dingbat waitress on the roof deck wanted to keep us off because we brought our own wine. I would have stayed, except my companion wanted to leave. The dingbat said liquor laws prohibit bringing your own, which is hotel code for, 'we've got a bar up here, to sell as much as we can". After drinking 2 supplied bottled waters in your room, the hotel starts charging for use. I buy bottles of the same water for 12 cents each. If you want a luggage cart, you have to have a bellboy with it, to feed them. As I said, the rooms aren't cheap. Maybe a little more accommodation would help, except this is Wyndham, so don't count on it.

We appreciate the insight on your stay and we are pleased that The Tremont House is your favorite place. In regard to bringing wine to the Rooftop Bar, Texas Alcoholic Beverage code prohibits any customer or guest from bringing outside alcoholic beverages into the hotel. The hotel is licensed to sell alcoholic beverages. Only alcoholic beverages purchased from the hotel may be consumed at the hotel. We apologize for the inconvenience.

This hotel is unique and oozes old world charm. It is located a block from the strand which is great for shopping, eating and entertainment. The sister hotel The Galvez has a shuttle or you can use your valet from this hotel and drive there with no extra charge. If you have younger children I would recommend the Galvez since it is on the beach and has a pool. The Tremont is better for couples or families with older children who would enjoy the nightlife of downtown. We enjoyed our stay overall and loved the high ceilings in our dbl queen deluxe room. The only problem I would say is that you have to carry your luggage up a set of stairs to get to the luggage cart in the lobby. We were surprised that the attendant did not offer to take our luggage up the stairs for us, but instead made the card for our valet key. Once we had our luggage on the cart then someone offered to push it to our room. Also, you can only come down the street one way to valet. It is a pain to turn around, so try to go down the block before so you have the hotel on your right when you get there. I would also have to complain about the comfort of the wicker couch and club chairs in the room. There are no throw pillows to be found and we all, kids included, had to use our bed pillow to make the seats more comfortable. There is a rooftop bar that is nice to see the port with the cruise ships coming in, and there is a nice bar in the lobby with a piano. The breakfast and lunch were good at the hotel restaurant. The coffee is starbucks, so that was nice. Overall, it is a nice hotel with a few hiccups that could and should be fixed.

Room Tip: There are rooms that overlook the lobby bar and others that face the street or port. I believe the...

Thank you for the insight on your recent stay at The Tremont House. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we agree that families with younger children would probably enjoy Hotel Galvez & Spa while older kids would like The Tremont House. We are sorry to hear that valet wasn't on their toes to help you with luggage. We'll make sure that their managers are aware. We hope that you stay with us again soon.

Wonderful place to stay. The only thing is that the roof top bar is a wonderful place to relax in the evening but needs to stay open longer. Service is exceptional and the cinnamon rolls are out of this world.

The Rooftop Bar is open Tuesday through Saturday until midnight. We close at midnight for the convenience of our guests who are on the fourth floor and in route to the bar. Thank you for your compliments and we look forward to your return.

We stay at the Tremont each year to celebrate our anniversary and continue to be impressed with the rooms and service. We requested an outside facing room but received an inside. When we asked to change, the staff was very friendly and changed us right away with no problem. The beds are always huge and comfortable, plus the rooms are very stylish. You can take a free shuttle or drive yourself to borrow the pool at the Galvez for free, plus the Tremont has a super rooftop bar. Even though it's hot in Galveston, it's always a nice breeze up at the rooftop bar,. We plan to stay again next year.

Room Tip: Choose an outside facing room. They seem to be a bit bigger and brighter.

This is one of our favorite hotels! The service is impeccable, rooms are very nice, beds super-comfortable and generally quiet. To ensure you get a quiet room, be sure to reserve one of the rooms facing outside. Great option for those who don't mind staying off the beach. Downtown Galveston has a lot to offer- and be sure to take advantage of the amenities at the Galvez also!

After dinner drinks with friends at the Rooftop Bar. Nice view as sun was setting. Cool breeze after a long, hot day. Waitress, Linai was very pleasant and attentive. Would like to go back the next time we visit. There was a jazz band playing in the downstairs bar that sounded great as we walked in.

We are so thrilled that you enjoyed "cooling off" at The Rooftop Bar at The Tremont House. We are proud to say that we offer the only rooftop bar in Galveston. And, thank you for mentioning our live jazz. We have live jazz every Friday and Saturday night in the Toujouse Bar on the first floor. Thanks and we hope to see you again soon.
