Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

First of all, the staff was friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable. You can tell that the hotel is an older hotel but it has been updated over the years. Because of that, I feel the prices should be a little lower but overall a nice quiet place to stay.

Great staff, excellent facilities, room was super comfortable, food and drinks were excellent. My only gripe is the hotel is more than a little expensive. They charged us for literally everything. Parking was rather expensive ($22.00 per night) and the hotel bar wasn't cheap either. Other than that it was great.

The front desk staff were extremely welcoming and helpful when I checked into the hotel. That experience continued throughout my stay. My room was very comfortable--I had a great view of the area. The hotel is located near to the Galleria so there is great shopping and many good restaurants nearby.

Quite expensive but good hotel. Good variety of breakfast. I did not like paying extra for parking as I already paid lot for the room.

Staff exceptionally professional. Everything ran smoothly. Coffee shop and bar offer some reasonable alternatives to the restaurant.

I live in Houston but will get a hotel room for a weekend from time to time. Royal Sonesta's location is perfect. Near shopping, great restaurants and easy access to 610 or 69. Staff is responsive and friendly and the room service is EXCELLENT. Give them a shot if you're in the Houston area.

Overall great! Loved the jacuzzi and workout room.

Very nice Hotel. Clean rooms, excellent staff, excellent price. New York strip steak from restaurant was perfect! Would recommend to everyone.

Awesome! Great place to stay, will stay again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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
