A Galveston minimoon is a great way to have a honeymoon before the honeymoon. The Tremont House, A Wyndham Grand Hotel, is located in Galveston’s Strand Historic District and would make for a romantic experience that takes you far away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life.
The beauty and charm of The Strand area cannot go unnoticed. When you step foot on this part of Galveston, you’re immediately taken back in time to experience a different type of tourism that only The Strand can offer. Filled with boutiques, restaurants and museums, The Tremont House is perfectly situated to allow for a memorable minimoon vacation with much to do.
Upon arrival, your luggage will be unloaded and your vehicle valet parked. After taking the few steps up to the main lobby, you’ll be amazed with the clean open air space filled with palms and orchid plants. With somewhat of a Parisian building feel, the open air lobby allows for a quaint outdoor feel that immediately sets the tone for the romance that awaits. The lobby bar, baby grand piano, cafe and lobby’s lounge area, makes for a perfect place to unwind and take in the atmosphere.
Since the post Hurricane Ike repairs, visitors can now experience more walls of exposed brick throughout the hotel. We simply love seeing exposed brick throughout this hotel. It adds to the charm that’s expected with a hotel of this era.
The rooming accommodations of The Tremont offers several different feels, from wrought iron beds and wall paper to four poster beds with exposed brick. Although era specific in look and feel, The Tremont offers cutting edge modern amenities to include charging stations for hybrid cars, fitness center, complimentary high-speed internet, flat screen televisions and rainfall shower heads.

When you’re ready to explore all the the Seawall has to offer, board the complimentary shuttle to the Hotel Galvez (sister property). Here you can enjoy the lobby bar, pool with swim up bar, restaurant and full service spa. The shuttle from Tremont to Galvez runs every two hours on weekdays and every hour on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:15A until 10:15P. With so many activities within walking distance of both properties, you and your love can stroll hand in hand and enjoy near by activities.
The Tremont House makes for a wonderful stand alone minimoon or an added stop to your honeymoon cruise or vacation. Have you experienced this Wyndham Grand Hotel before? We’d love it if you’d share your story in the comments below.
