The Tremont House Offers Meaningful Meetings in Texas' Backyard
Galveston Island is just 45 minutes south of Houston and surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Galveston Bay. The Tremont House, a Wyndham Grand Hotel and National Trust Historic Hotel of America, is one of only two historic hotels on the Island. Its Historic Downtown Strand District location offers attendees the option to shop and stroll along The Strand or savor the view from the rooftop after a day of meetings.
The Tremont House features Wyndham ClearAir™ allergy-friendly air purification meeting space where 98-100 percent of all viruses and bacteria are eliminated. All room surfaces are treated to remove and hinder contaminants. As part of this process, a tea tree oil cartridge is installed that acts as a natural disinfectant. This purification system is in place in all 14,700 square feet of space in nine meeting rooms. The hotel has also added the air purification system to 10 percent of its sleeping rooms. These sleeping rooms are an optional upgrade. The PURE system is the most comprehensive allergy-friendly system in the hospitality industry.
Meeting planners can choose from a wide range of space from the option of a small board room to a large ballroom. The recently updated Tremont Ballroom in the Davidson Building (7,946 sq. ft.) hosts the grandest of gatherings but can also be divided into North and South Rooms for smaller events. The Annex (1,925 sq. ft.) on the first floor of the Davidson Building can host up to 100 people. One of the more popular rooms in the hotel is the Sam Houston Room (2,842 sq. ft.) where sunlight filters through floor to ceiling windows, creating a bright and alluring meeting space. The newly relocated Samuel May Williams Room (736 sq. ft.), which also offers floor to ceiling windows and plantation shutters, can accommodate up to 25 people in a classroom style setup or up to 20 people in a conference style setup. The room holds up to 50 people in rounds of 10 for a banquet or up to 50 people for a standing reception.
