Newly renovated the Sonesta is grand and very plush. We stayed one nite and very much enjoyed this newly renovated hotel. The lobby and public areas are gorgeous and the rooms are very well furnished and very clean. The bed is great with super soft linens and plush pillows. They offer a great AC and WIFI too!

Beautiful hotel that's very close to the Galleria. Rooms are very modern with neat automatic white LED lights near the floor that come on when you walk by the beds. You won't stub your toes when the room lights aren't on. The restaurants are a bit pricey, but the food is very good. One morn we had breakfast there and... More

I was in a business trip to Houston and it was my first time there. The weather in Houston in the summer is a disaster, but I guess there nothing you can do about it besides staying at air conditioned offices, hotels and malls... The hotel has a very good location, big and clean rooms and lovely employees. Even during... More

The room is barely large enough to move around in. Everything is very compact. I was shocked due to the fact this is listed as 4star. The lobby area is lovely. I've experience larger rooms as Hampton by the airport and Homewood suites for comfortable rates. Both with double beds. Fortunately only here for one night. Staff is pleasant. Rooms... More
