Bright light filters through floor-to-ceiling windows inside the Parlor Suites at The Westin Galleria Houston, while Traditional Rooms are adorned with cherry wood tones, and the Luxury Suites include a lounge area with plush furniture for entertaining clients and friends. Head to the fifth floor to sunbathe beside the rooftop pool before diving in to cool off, or put in a workout at the WestinWORKOUT Fitness Studio.

Finish off a great day with dinner at the White Oak Kitchen, which serves international flavors spanning Thailand to Hungary and beyond.

Neighborhood
Most hotels aren't situated in the middle of the mall. However, for shopaholics, the Westin Galleria Hotel Houston is a real paradise, set in the downtown area of the city. Just steps away from the room are some of the largest retail shops in the United States, with a variety of restaurants just as close. Venture roughly eight miles away for a cultured experience inside the Museum District, where the Holocaust Museum, the Contemporary Arts Museum and the Children's Museum of Houston offer history, artworks, crafts and interactive displays for kids.
Hints and tips
If you aren't pressed for time on the day of your departure, consider calling down to the front desk and taking advantage of late checkout.
The Daily Grill offers crowd-pleasing hamburgers and drinks, while the breakfast in the morning will surely boost your energy for the day.

Nice Getaway in a Convenient Location

The Westin Galleria is a very nice hotel. It's great that it's right on top of the Galleria mall, to provide you direct easy access. I stayed there for an event taking place in their ballroom. The convenience of having my room right upstairs was well worth it. The staff was super friendly, great service, and late checkout on Sunday a total convenience. If you want to stay in the Galleria area, this is a good option. Definitely you get your money's worth.

The good stores in Galleria are right below the hotel. No need to drag your shopping bags to a parking garage far away!

March Getaway

My wife and I just returned from visiting friends who live near Huston and we stayed at the Westin Galleria. The location of this hotel was great for those shopaholics out there. You could enter into the Mall directly from the hotel. Many of the stores are a bit on the pricey side. The food court was great with several places to eat and there was an ice skating rink right in the center of the Mall. The staff was very friendly and our check in went very quickly. Our room was even available before our check in time. One thing I did not see in our room was a guide book showing where everything was located such as the pool, gym etc. but the staff was very helpful in helping us locate whatever we needed. It was a great stay and we would definitely stay there again.

rajiv's opinion

Cant beat the location. Obviously the shopping at the Galleria is fantastic. There are very good dining optioms at the Galleria or other fine dining options close to the hotel. Service was excellent. Housekeeping was aberage but the rest of the staff were phenomenal. The hertz counter at the hotel was a big plus.

Excellent

Perfect place to stay in Houston! The room was very good and the service was excellent. More perfect for shopping, you actually live inside the mall.
