Wyndham Tremont House
Great for wedding parties
We stayed here for my sisters wedding. The staff were very friendly handling the hundreds of crazy young adults coming in and wanting to change there room or get an upgrade. The rooms her so big and you will not ever want to get out of the bed. They even had a Ipod docking station in the room so I did not need to charger to charge my iphone! I stayed one night in the honeymoon suite with my sister the night before her wedding and it had to different areas to the room with two seperate bathrooms, a living area and a bed. The next night I had my own room which felt like it was larger in the room size, I could have done kart wheels in the room.
Unique Quality: This hotel does not have a pool but they will shuttle you to the Galvez hotel where the pool is huge and has a nice size swim up bar in pool. This hotel is also beachfront so you could also take that shuttle to the beach.
It does have a restaurant when breakfast but it is not free.
The location is on the strand and walking distance to just about any restaurant or bar around that area. It is also walking distant to the cruise terminal, railroad museum, and lots of shopping.
The beach is not walking distance unless you like to walk, it may be about a 30 min to an hour walk to the seawall. Or you can take the shuttle.
Directions: The Tremont House, A Wyndham Grand Hotel is located in Galveston, close to Strand Theatre, Galveston Island Railroad Museum, and Grand 1894 Opera House. Nearby points of interest also include Texas Seaport Museum and Bishop's Palace.

Posh Downtown Hotel
The Tremont House is conveniently and wisely located a block or so away from the Strand, which runs along the waterfront area. We took a peek at its lobby and snapped a few pictures. Although the lobby was not large, it was comfortably furnished with cushioned wicker chairs and a small bar to one side.
After reading about its history, this is what we learned:
Tremont House was a popular destination on the island since 1839, hosting several American presidents and foreign dignitaries. During the Civil War, both Confederate and Union soldiers resided here. A fire destroyed the hotel in June 1865, afterwhich several prominent businessmen from the island organized their efforts in building a new hotel.
A grand, four-story new Tremont House was opened in 1872 designed by noted architect, Nicholas Clayton. It became a rousing success and was visited by those of import from around the world. However, it became a casualty to the Great Storm of 1900 and the Great Depression in the 1920's, eventually being demolished in 1928.
George and Cynthia Mitchell (Galveston preservationists and developers) acquired the Leon & H. Blum Building in 1985 and began transforming it into the third Tremont House. The ornate 1879 Blum building was once a wholesale dry goods store. The Tremont House became a Wyndham historic hotel in 1996 and a member of Historic Hotels of America in 2002
Unique Quality: We did not stay here, but had the opportunity to take a quick look inside
A Hark Back To Days Long Past!
Located in the historic Strand District of downtown Galveston, the Tremont House is a wonderful tribute to the city's Victorian age past. The original Tremont House dates back to 1839, when it was opened under the flag of the Republic of Texas. Many icons have passed through it's doors over the years, including a number of U.S. presidents, General Sam Houston, and after the terrible 1900 Galveston Hurricane, Red Cross founder Clara Barton used it as a shelter. The present structure was opened in 1985, recreating the magnificient past the hotel has had. The hotel has a great appearance about it, both inside and out. From the outside, it gives the feeling of a centuries old European hotel. And upon entering the lobby, you notice the lovely use of white decor all around, with the partially open roof that lets in sunlight and allows for a very natural illumination. Rooms are spectacular and spacious, with an excellent mix of Victorian decor and modern amenities. The fine dining restaurant here serves some of the best seafood on the island. And some great views of the city can be seen from the viewing deck located atop the hotel. Staff is very courteous, and very helpful in any recommendations or information that you may need. The one issue that the hotel has is parking, in which the hotel only offers valet. But if you do not wish to keep your car with them, there are several lots within walking distance for a minimal charge.
Unique Quality: Although not the original building, the Tremont House does have a long history on the island, and the property's look and feel give it a character all to it's own amongst hotels on the island.
