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,... See full review

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. Indulgent in-room spa treatments provide the ultimate way to relax, with aromatherapy oils, room sprays and relaxing music. Finish off a great day with dinner at the White Oak Kitchen, which serves international flavors spanning Thailand to Hungary and beyond.
Location
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.

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.

Shop til you drop

Great hotel location and easy access to all shopping. Some difficulty navigating the parking garages and finding our way back to the hotel, but you really can't beat free parking in the galleria area.

Great for shoping in the Galleria

If Galleria shopping is your final goal, this is your final destination hotel. Its right in the middle of the Gallería, not like the other hotels at the end or outside.

definitely not a good experience

there was no running water in the morning.... when it finally came back it was murky ......so I decided I was better off not taking a shower rather than waiting some more and missing my appointments. They payed for lunch on my way out which made it better, but it was definitely not a 4 star experience
