Today, Galveston lost one of its most precious treasures and visionaries with the passing of our owner Mr. George Mitchell. His vision and passion for the preservation of Galveston has been a gift for both visitors and residents alike. Mr. Mitchell played a pivotal role in the revitalization of Galveston’s historic downtown and seaport, the revival of Mardi Gras, the development of the West End, and in Galveston’s hotel and cruise industry.  These contributions and his various philanthropic projects have improved the quality of life for this city and will continue to benefit generations to come.

We are deeply saddened by his passing and express our sincere condolences to the Mitchell Family.

Mr. Mitchell and the Mitchell Family are owners of Hotel Galvez & Spa and The Tremont House, both Wyndham Grand® Hotels, and Harbor House Hotel & Marina.
