Staying at Embassy-Conference at Westin

How far is the walk from the Westin-Galleria to the Embassy Suites? I'm attending a convention that will be hosted by the Westin but decided to find a hotel away from the convention traffic. Also, what restaraunts are in the area?

Canyon Cafe and Maggiano's are both nice and fun

If your convention starts after 10AM, you can easily walk to the Westin-Galleria by entering Macy's at the corner of Sage and Alabama. This is the older Macy's in Galleria 3, and so you would have to go through Saks Fifth Avenue to get to Galleria 2 where the Westin-Galleria is located. If it's a nice day, just walk around the church that's between the Embassy Suites and the Old Macy's and you'll see the Westin-Galleria. Otherwise, that Embassy Suites does have a shuttle service to the Galleria and can tell you where they drop off and pick up. Do verify that your conference is at Westin-Galleria rather than Westin Oaks. We do have 2 Westin hotels here, and most of the conferences are at Westin-Galleria, but on odd occassions there are stuff held at Westin Oaks.

In terms of food, in the Galleria the big restaurants are Cheesecake Factory, Ninfa's Tex-mex, Chili's, and Benigans. Canyon Cafe and Grand Lux Cafe on the other side of Westheimer are good. If you have a car, then the Original Pappasito's on Richmond, as well as a bunch of other restaurants in Highland Village, and even prepared foods at Central Market (grocery).
