The atmosphere - modern. The beds are comfortable with great night lighting that came on when you get up... More

KLM put me in this hotel after a cancelled flight. A bar with a buzz which doesn't happen very often in a hotel bar. I found the reception staff were particularly helpful. Not sure of the surroundings as I was only stayed one night

I was there for a baseball convention. If you are driving, then you should have no problems. In fact, you could rate the hotel experience a 5. But many of us came straight from the airport. It's about $25.00 per person one way to and from the airport using the shuttle. There are 2 airports, but the prices for the... More

I've stayed here twice and had an average experience one time and a pretty good experience the other time. Out of all the places I've stayed in the galleria this is one of the more comfortable and convenient hotels. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. However, there was some plumbing issues and everything my neighbor turned their... More

As a member of the HWCOC Social Committee, we hosted an open networking social at this hotel. All of the staff was very attentive and accommodating. The chamber attendees were very pleased with the location, service, and overall welcoming staff. The hotel is beautiful and I would recommend the Royal Sonesta for all of your catering events.

This hotel is downtown and solves the parking problem with it's own gated parking garage with an attendant. I negotiated the rate to only $99.00/ night with complimentary parking! Very nice lobby with a quick and friendly check in. The included WIFI was a bit slow but adequate for my needs. If faster speeds are needed upgrades are available for... More

We hadn't stayed in many hotels in Houston as we lived there for twenty years and didn't need lodging. As we returned for a brief visit on business I picked a hotel based on location, price, and appearance based on web site pictures. We were not there very long, but it was a great find, with friendly service, modern accommodations,... More

We had never heard of Royal Sonesta hotels so we were teasing the person who made the reservation. Boy did we eat our words. This hotel was beautiful. It was super clean, the rooms were spacious, and the beds were comfy. We had the breakfast buffet the next morning and it was delicious. This hotel was a bargain for the... More
