Business trip oasis

Rooms are nice, the decor is nice and I liked the gym. I would have preferred breakfast to be included like many other hotels, however I liked the way you could purchase sandwiches, salads and other food and drinks 24 hours a day in the kitchen area. I was not expecting to have to pay a parking fee. There was a daily charge for parking.

Fun/hip value walking distance to Houston Galleria

About two blocks from Galleria 3, it's a convenient place to stay for shopping and restaurants. Diagonally across the street is an outdoor bar/pub called the West End -- a casual hangout spot. The hotel's own bar is also respectable with a billiard table as well. The pool isn't quite W hotel variety, but there is a small one. Modern touches are reminiscent of the W hotels. Get a high floor room facing east, and you should be able to see the Galleria. The Galleria area (or "Uptown") is very central to the city, and it can be a good location when visiting Houston on business while also desiring a bit of fun. It's around many of Houston's nicer neighborhoods putting it equi-distant from the downtown museum district and many of Houston's energy companies. In between the Galleria and downtown are hip, fun areas like the Heights and Rice Village.

Great place for party people

I love the room.. it was beautiful. The overall look was more like a posh club. The only problem was when I went down to the W XYZ Lounge.. there were people who were clearly drunk being loud. It took away the relaxing feel of the lounge. Many people that were there just to relax and have a glass of wine left.

Friendly staff, clean stylish rooms

Come to Houston every year for our company christmas party for the last 8 years. Stayed at many great hotels including Hotel Derek and Hotel Sorellia at city centre. This hotel is just as modern and stylish as those and the people are friendly. Parking was easy and convenient, in and out for a flat $10. My only regret is that we were not able to stay longer.
