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.

The Location is great for a shopper

I wasnt quite happy with the condition and size of the room. It was small and it looked old. The pictures posted on the hotel site are way out of proportions in comparision to the room I got. It was okay. The hotels best asset is its location especially for shoppers. I would try the westin oaks next time.

You can shop till you drop and always go and come to the hotel to drop off your shopping bags. The enterence to the mall is so great because its location is almost in the middle of everything.

Great Hotel

The Westin Galleria is located at the Galleria. You have immediate access to the restaurants, stores, and the food court. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Hotel staff was very helpful and polite. I will definitely stay here during my next visit.
