The Tremont House to Offer Extended Stay Option
The Tremont House has begun construction of its new extended stay options – complete with kitchens, living and dining space - available for guests in late 2017. The hotel is owned by Mitchell Historic Properties (MHP), which also owns the nearby 1858 Berlocher Building on 2311-2313 Ship’s Mechanic Row. MHP plans to convert fourteen loft apartments in the Berlocher Building to luxury, extended-stay 1 and 2 king-sized bedrooms with fully-furnished kitchens, high-end furnishings for living and dining. These rooms would be added to The Tremont House inventory and targeting extended stay guests.

The bar, open evenings daily (weather permitting), offers views of Galveston’s historic downtown and harbor from the roof of the six-floor hotel. The bar received four 2016 “Best of the Island” Awards from Galveston.com for Best Bar, Best Cocktail Bar, Best Hotel Bar and Best Atmosphere. Awards are determined by a popular vote and nomination.

What The Tremont House is Known For
Tremont Shares History
The history of The Tremont House can be traced back to 1839 when the first hotel, located at the corner of Tremont and Postoffice streets opened. In celebration of this heritage, the hotel added a small history exhibit on three hotels bearing its name and the contributions of George and Cynthia Mitchell to its preservation and their role in restoring The Historic Strand District. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
