More Room Types

Since opening its doors in 1872, The Tremont House has witnessed history unfold within its walls. Sam Houston, President of the Republic of Texas, gave his last speech here; Confederate and Union soldiers slept in the rooms; and hurricane victims found a dry haven within during the Great Storm.

Today, the luxury hotel charms guests with period reproduction furnishings, high ceilings and hardwood floors in the rooms and suites. Contemporary amenities like free Wi-Fi, HD TVs, iPod docking stations and coffeemakers with Wolfgang Puck coffee keep modern-day visitors comfortable. Kids under 17 stay free in the same room as an adult.

The property features a casual café open for three meals a day, as well as a mahogany bar in the palm-filled, four-story atrium. The Rooftop Bar is the only open-air rooftop venue in Galveston and is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail while watching the sun set into the harbor. The property features a fitness room, and guests have access to the pool at the Hotel Galvez and Spa, Tremont’s sister hotel.

The Tremont House is located within walking distance of the Strands’ attractions, including the Grand 1894 Opera House, Galveston Island Railroad Museum and Pier 21 Theater. The hotel’s fourth floor is also the last stop on the year-round Ghosts of Galveston Tour, as it's allegedly haunted by a Victorian-era ghost.
