My recommendations would be to join Travel Pass in advance and make sure to write down your number. It makes a difference with the Internet service. Plan to spend $30 if you valet park, and $19 if you self park. Plan to spend $4 in the market cafe (not open at night) if you want a coke. Plan to visit... More

The Royal Sonesta Houston is a well maintained property. Spacious, clean rooms with gorgeous flat screens and comfortable beds made the stay quite enjoyable. Located within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and convenience stores.

Good service and comfortable rooms, food was good. Very busy and large hotel but noise was not a problem. Well placed to access the Galleria and lots of good choices in the area if you want to eat away from the hotel.

No microwave or refrigerator in the room; no vending machines - a $4 soda from the coffee shop is price gouging; free Internet access unreliable and slow with tiered pricing for better access (that's absolutely unacceptable these days)... and that's what I can remember. I'm sure there was more.

We spent two nights at the Royal Sonesta, which is about a 40-minute drive from George Bush airport, to enable me to fulfil a long-held ambition of visiting the Space Centre. It is conveniently located right next to the 610 interstate, although you'd be well advised to get satnav if trying to find your way there at night, and there... More

Great hotel!!! It's a very good option in lodging in this city. Very near from interesting places, restaurants and bars. All the hotel is very good, rooms and installations. The hotel staff is friendly and have a good bar inside to have a few drinks. Very good option for any purpose.

Excellent hotel in a lovely location. The rooms are very clean and the staff very friendly and always there to help you. However, it's not close to the city centre but its close to shopping malls in a very close distance.

Someone at the hotel charged my charge card $76.05. I had paid for the stay with airlines mileage. I asked the reception to check inventory of minibar as I used nothing. I did not enter restaurant or bar. This charge was definetly not "HOLD " for misc. expenses as it is a round number. Someone told my bank that they... More

Stayed here for a lovely week while attending a conference and workshops in Houston. The room was well-appointed, with an accessible fridge, Wi-Fi, and all other "basics" one could want these days. The pillows and bed were soft and wonderful. The fitness center was small but functional - same for the outdoor pool and Jacuzzi. We especially loved the lounge,... More
