The Tremont House features Wyndham ClearAir™ allergy-friendly air purification meeting space where 98-100 percent of all viruses and bacteria are eliminated.

These sleeping rooms are an optional upgrade. The PURE system is the most comprehensive allergy-friendly system in the hospitality industry.
