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!

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.

Good Stay

Very well located , it is adjacent to the Galleria Shopping Centre and very close to the Reliant Stadium . Even though I didnt use any of the amenities at the Hotel , I found the rooms quite comfortable , spacious and very well furnished. The Hotel is 30 minutes away from the airport. The concierge system is quite rusty , we went down to the lobby to get some tickets for a show and it took us forever . Besides that everything was in place.
