We just stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights, and had a delightful experience. In these strange days of COVID, we found ourselves almost alone at this wonderful property. From check-in to check-out, everyone at this hotel was awesome. While services were reduced, i.e. no bellman, concierge or valet parking, they still had a restaurant and bar open for business, and we found all the employees very attentive. Our room was extremely clean, as was the entire property including the on-site gym facility. Special shout-outs to Tugkan and Michael who staffed the bar for great drinks and conversation, and Rosie in the Cafe for going the extra mile in accommodating special dietary needs on the fly. As our son just relocated to Houston, we will definitely be back and will be staying at this property!

Dear JimmeeB1, We are always thankful when guests share their favorite Royal Sonesta stories and we appreciate you taking the time to pass along your thoughtful review. Our Stay Safe with Sonesta program was designed with the well-being of both our guests and colleagues in mind and it warms us to learn when our extra efforts resulted in an added layer of comfort. We appreciate the kind words regarding the attention to detail provided by our Royal Sonesta housekeeping team and we will be sure to celebrate the details of your review with them. Your added feedback regarding Tugkan and Michael in Axis Lounge has also captured our attention and when sharing your review with them, they asked that we pass along their gratitude as well as their warm wishes. We thank you again for joining us and we look forward to serving as your home-away-from-home each time you visit your son. Until next time. Warm regards, Peter Schreurs Director of Operations

Hotel's Favorite
As Hurricane Laura pushed us westward, we found an incredible place to hunker down and stay. The front desk staff was so pleasant as well as caring. We did not want for anything during our “Hurrication”. Their total can do spirit and willingness to listen and then take care of our needs and wants. The hotel is beautiful and so inviting. We shall return during a more pleasurable time! Below is a photo of our hosts for our time there— thanks so much!!

Dear Ladybugtx76, First and foremost, we hope things at home are well following the hurricane and we trust you found our team happy to jump to the rescue in serving as the host of your Houston “Hurrication”. We have always believed that with so many hotels for travelers to choose from, it is really the gracious hospitality provided by our team which brings guests back time and again and your kind comments further affirm that belief. While we hope the reason for your next visit is just a relaxing staycation, we want you to know that we would be thrilled to see you again. Until then. Warm regards, Peter Schreurs Director of Operations

When we got to our room, the strongest marijuana smell you can imagine seeped through the walls. Couch was torn. Terrible service at the front desk with a clueless man when we complained. Would not come back.

Dear Beetravels1234, Greetings from all of us in Houston and thank you for allowing our Galleria hotel to serve as your home-away-from-home. While we hope our location served you well, we are sorry to learn of the condition of your room and we hope you can accept our sincerest of apologies. We thank you for expressing your concerns while at the hotel and we regret to learn that your comments were not better resolved. Should your time allow, I would welcome the chance to speak by phone so that a more personal apology can be extended and so that I may learn a little bit more so that the proper coaching can take place. With that goal in mind, my email address is provided below which I encourage you to use in forwarding your own information and a convenient time that I may give you a call. Once more, we thank you for your feedback and I look forward to speaking with you in the days ahead. Warm regards Peter Schreurs Director of Operations pschreurs@sonesta.com

Come on! Where are all the good reviews coming from? We are in a pandemic. I checked into the room and what do I see when I open the door- a crumpled up blanket near the TV and a bathroom totally and completely not cleaned up from the previous person complete with gross smudges and toothpaste on the countertops and trash in the basket. When I went back to the desk, the person assured me that the hotel “would never do such a thing on purpose” although I don’t see how this makes it any better. The second room was marginally better, although I still saw gross black hair clump in the shower. Even for Houston, the standard is simply too low. Don’t waste your time at S(tain)esta!

Dear Paulina_lip, Greetings from all of us in the Galleria and thank you for joining us during your recent Houston visit. As your comments note, our best effort was not on display and we apologize again for this isolated incident. Regrettably, a data entry error within our computer systems led our front desk team to believe that the room you were assigned was prepared to greet an arriving guest and we fully agree that this was not the case. We thank you for allowing us to provide a personal apology, though we are sorry to find that the gestures provided by our management team did not result in us winning your seal of approval. On behalf of all of us, we thank you again for joining us and we look forward to impressing even more the next time we see you. All the best, Peter Schreurs Director of Operations
