4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

If you are staying in the Galleria area - the Royal Sonesta is a solid option. It's not quite as charming as a boutique hotel (my normal preference), but has more personality than your run of the mill big box chain hotel. On more than one occasion - I've been able to catch a great rate here. The rooms and... More

The hotel itself is gorgeous. Really nice. The room was great and very comfortable. Free WiFi and reasonable self parking fee, compared to what other hotels in this class charge for parking. The bar downstairs also serve up some great drinks, but a little on the pricey side. Didn't get a chance to try the restaurants or coffee shop. The... More

The hotel entrance is gorgeous! Valet is very responsive and Room Service was just okay. The bed was comfy and I was given a great view of Downtown Houston. Upon my arrival, the toilet seat cover was broken, shower faucet fell apart and the adjoining room door did not lock! Scary stuff, especially if you're traveling alone. The people next... More

This is a beautiful hotel with a very friendly staff. The valets, front desk, & bar tenders were all so pleasant & helpful. We stayed on the 16 floor & had a view of 610 loop/downtown, which was beautiful at night. Room was a little small, but the decor was modern & the beds were comfy! Loved having a mini... More

Stayed for only two nights at the end of a conference trip. Rooms were modern, comfortable and extremely quiet, even though I was on the eighth floor overlooking the freeway. Staff in the the bar were friendly and efficient, bar food was excellent. Hotel was cheaper than the "conference" rates I'd paid at another hotel earlier in the week. The... More

This hotel is in a great location, reasonably priced, and the staff was very friendly. The mattress was plush -- that's my personal preference, but your mileage may vary. If the website says it is full, go ahead and call and make sure -- there may still be availability.

This hotel is an excellent venue for a symposium or small congress. The hotel staff is pretty accommodating and friendly. This hotel seems to have been modernized in the last year. It used to be an Intercontinental Hotel and it was pretty run down....today it looks and feels like a different hotel.

Great service, food, rooms. My 7th time doing a major conference here and it was all good. Very good service by everyone-- David Bennett, Luis Aguilar, Francisco Figueroa, Mercedes Arevalo, Omar Escobedo and Theresa Carranza who helped me with a special request during lunch. Too many others to name but I thank you all!

When my little one woke up early to draw a Mother's Day card for my wife, the pressure is on to bring the family to a nice Sunday brunch. Searched online for "best mother's day brunch" and Royal Sonesta's buffet brunch sounds extremely appetizing. Making a reservation in the morning of Mother's Day at one of the top hotels in... More

My company had a block of rooms here for OTC. At the end of each day it took an hour to get home in traffic. The pros: Rooms are newly renovated with fresh decor and plush beds. Very comfy. Staff are friendly, especially in the restaurant. Downsides: Located right on the freeway and surrounded by other buildings that echo the... More
