Recent guest reviews

hotel is comfortable, but parking garage is a bit far and no elevator

EVERYONE VERY PROFESSIONAL AT EVERY TOUCH POINT.

Very nice hotel with a great breakfast selection. Very accommodating and their room service menu is great. I room service bring me a steak for a late dinner and at first I was like upset that they gave me a butter knife to cut it with but it was not a problem at all. It cut through it as if it were butter. Front desk was very helpful and responsive during our stay. Would definitely stay again. Parking is extra however ($22ish in/out) and can rack up by the day.

Clean rooms, nice hotel, great gym facilities, and pool/hot tub. Unfortunately, the rooms leave a bit to be desired. "Queen" beds were more like doubles. And, room did not cool down comfortably. We got a great winter special discounted price; however, had I paid full price I would've been a bit disappointed.

Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria is a clean and neat hotel, and great location

i check in late but got everything done very fast by the receptionist very respectful and nice..

Great hotel, the staff was great and very helpful. Hotel was clean and quite

Just inside the loop close to great shopping and delicious food! Beautiful and incredibly comfortable rooms (our with a incredible view of Houston) and a great gym and pool to keep you cool. Look forward to staying again.

Nice experience and would definitely recommend. Staff was helpful and even gave me extra time to check out.

The hotel did not have a lot to offer as far as a restaurant or spa and the pool was pretty small.

Was okay. Bartender was very friendly. Restaurant menu was okay b

The hotel is fairly decent compared to the other hotels nearby galleria. The price per night add the valet fee of almost $30 nightly can be about 200 bucks a night. Breakfast not included is another drag. Overall could be better

Very good hotel just to Spend a couple days! Not Mach to do.

Excellent hotel, great location and hotel staff. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. Only thing is parking is a little bit pricey $19 +tax

This hotel was a great stay for the amount we paid. The staff was the best and went above and beyond.

great stay!! I would def come here again. great rooms, food, service.

Super close to the Galleria. It was a great experience and expected with the name of the hotel. Only issue we encountered was our original room key wasn't programmed to give give us access to the club level(like a lounge club that came with the purchase of the suite) but rectified by the staff immediately when notified of the problem. Plan to go back there in the summer for a longer stay!

The hotel was comfortable and clean. The staff was kind and accommodating. The coffee shop was great!

Very nice hotel, good location and staff were friendly. Will surely be back again in future.

Everything was perfect except that I had to pay to park for every night I was there

Dear Q, As you likely discovered, the steaks featured on our room service menu from ARA Restaurant are nothing short of tender and delicious and we are thrilled that you so thoroughly enjoyed. We apologize that your tray was not furnished with the appropriate knife but we are elated that this and the rest of your visit were beyond your expectation. It was a joy to host you and we look forward to doing so again, hopefully one day soon. Warm Regards, Royal Sonesta Houston
