We stayed at the Sorella one night for a little b-day getaway on the recommendation of a good friend. I love the interior of the hotel and the decor, very pretty. Check in was fast and the desk attendant was very polite. The room was very roomy with modern decor. We decided to walk around the City Center area for a bit that afternoon...I guess I didn't realize how new the whole area is, but there are still very few retail stores occupying the spaces, however there are several restraunts, and there is still construction going on around the area. We decided to have a cupcake at Sweet and then a drink at Yard House. Later in the evening we walked over to Brio for dinner. The general area around the hotel outside was just swarming with people...and was still equally packed when we came back over 2 hours later after dinner...lots of kids running around too which I thought was strange since it was after 10pm and it doesn't strike me as a kid or family oriented area. After dinner we decided to go up the the hotel bar, the Monnalisa, for drinks and some live music. The music and drinks were great...but unfortunately we didn't stay too long because it was absolutely packed in there and there was no seating available by the time we got there...very little offered to begin with. We would have been ok to stand for a while and enjoy the music, but for some reason there is a large fire pit in the center of the room. While it looks really cool, it's still fire and it really heated the place up! That heat combined with the muggy and hot Houston air flowing in and out as people walked out onto the patio just made it uncomfortable in there. Next time I'll make sure we get there early so we can get a table...far away from the fire! We weren't ready to turn in for the night so decided to go over to the large lounge area near the lobby...there was ample seating there inside as well as outside and only a few people over there. We ended up sitting for a while on the patio (2nd floor) and people watched below. When we returned to our room we found a bottle of champagne waiting for us on ice! Neither one of us ordered it and there wasn't a note (and we weren't charged for it) so I'm assuming it was just a gift from the hotel...Nice :) I do have to say that the walls are paper thin. I was unfortunately kept up several hours throughout the night because of some drunken fools banging and screaming. From what I could hear, I believe they were asked to keep it down several times either by hotel staff or other guests, but that seemed to only fuel their behavior. So, while the bad behavior of others certainly isn't the hotel's fault, the walls provided VERY little noise buffer! I booked the room package that included sunday brunch at the hotel restaurant, Bistro Alex. The food and service here are great. I highly recommend this package for the value. The brunch included in the package is not buffet, but on a normal menu and you can just order to your content as many courses as you like...even dessert! One adult beverage per person is included too. I recommend the steak migas...soooo good! There were also musicians playing jazz music throughout brunch with was great! Also, we did not use the pool, but walked by it several times and were surprised at how super-tiny it is! the lounges by the pool look really nice, but I was just really surprised at how small the area is as well as the pool itself. If you are planning on some pool time during your stay, I'd get down there early to claim a spot! All in all, we had a good expreience, minus the noisy drunk idiots of course, and will definitely consider this hotel again.

My husband and I stayed at the Sorella for the second time for a weekend getaway, and it was just as amazing the 2nd time around as our 1st stay. The rooms are extremely clean and the staff are very polite and professional!

My husband and I like to take mini vacations at high end hotels and resorts in the area-- less cost because of the greatly reduced transportation expense and a chance to be pampered. At a friend's recommendation we booked the Sorella in the City Center area of Houston. It's a sleek hotel, refined lines, excellent beds, nice towels and bathrobes and from some rooms a great view. Nice pool, great deck chairs but a very small area and a tiny pool. Parking is valet or self. We tried the Brennan's cafe in the hotel and had a nice flat bread appetizer and a great martini-- service was friendly but slow. Great restaurants nearby and interesting shops. The room was only $179 per night. We'll go back soon!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the park-- the view is much nicer.

Got a Deluxe Room facing the "green" to watch the 4th of July Fireworks. Although the fireworks show only last 10 minutes, the hotel room was worth it. Beautifully clean and modern. The kids enjoyed swimming, but I wish the kids were not kicked out of the pool at 9pm. We would have enjoyed watching the fireworks from the pool area.

Room Tip: ask for a room that faces the Green, rather than the tollway!

The Hotel was super clean, nice modern-retro design, We stayed in the Jr. Suite. Pretty roomy, and pretty pricey! We called the front desk for a mini fridge and had it delivered to our room in about 10 minutes. The view was great from room 915. The free continental breakfast is fruit, cereal and a few pastries. The location is great, in the middle of city center houston. Check out time is noon. Overall it was a great two night stay.
