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.
