Erica Ramos in the bar was amazing! She was such a gem I can’t even explain. This girl will treat you right! She treated me and my crew like family I love her! She is warm and fired up and is ready to treat you right.

Hotel's Favorite
This hotel was better than I expected. I was not familiar with the brand and my assistant booked me here for a conference. I was given a corner king room and it was PERFECT. It was spacious with a good view and at the end of the hall so it was QUIET (which I was afraid would be impossible when I walked in the lobby only to find a whole teenage softball team staying there). The room service the next morning was timely, hot and good food. The amenities in the room were standard but good. No microwave though which is terribly inconvenient. Frig and Keurig were good. No extra blankets in the room to enjoy the chaise or add to the bed, but they did give you a bathrobe so, if you got chilly, you could make due. The hiccup...went downstairs to get some work down and then print the notes sheet for my presentation and both printers were out of ink and I heard they had been that way for awhile. I panicked as I needed to have those in paper form, mark them up and have them ready the next day. They ended up printing it for me at the front desk. But when you are accommodating business folks, that is something that needs to be checked often or be prepared with a nearby kinko's. Overall...GREAT experience and if given a good deal/price I would love to stay there again in an upgraded concierge room to rate that as well.

The common areas were nice looking, room was clean, I love how the bathroom looked.You can go walking to the Galleria, its really close to the hotel. We didn't have time to go to the pool or any other areas. We didn't know that we had to pay for parking, I would recommend to keep that in mind, we paid $25 for a night. Only problem was that the room next door had kids and we could hear everything they were saying. But it wasn't that bad.

The Royal Sonesta is an impressive large, good quality hotel with all the amenities that you would expect from a city hotel. The hotel is well placed for a very large shopping mall and the hotel provides a shuttle service covering a 3 mile radius which covers the hotel. The hotel restaurant is very good and the staff friendly and efficient but, during our stay, hardly used. The gym is well equipped and quite busy at certain times of the day and the pool was reasonable size and well kept. There is also a breakfast snack bar to buy continental breakfast foods which works well. Apart from the shopping mall there was not a lot to see around the hotel and few restaurants within walking distance. Houston Art Museum is worth a visit.
