We had a very nice stay at Royal Sonesta. Close to the Galleria. The area gets very busy. Nice workout room. The restaurant was delicious. The garage parking is tight and a bit of a hassle to get to and from your room. They offer valet if that is what you are into.

Business meeting was excellent, staff pleasant and accommodating. Room was clean, well appointed, quiet and roomy. Could not ask for more. Parking garage has small spaces yet was able to fit full size pickup into space. Food and beverages above average.

This hotel was so nice we opted to hangout in our room most of the night rather than explore the city too much. Mind you we were exhausted from the night before.

I love hosting events at this venue because the staff is always on top of everything and the venue itself is beautiful. Be sure to contact Ann Massey, the catering director, if you are interested in holding an event here. She and her team always make things flow smoothly for our events.
