I can honestly say that after reading the reviews here, I was concerned about my booking this location and property. However, after staying the weekend here, I couldn't disagree with the poor reviews more.
I emailed ahead of our arrival and was answered quickly by Ms. Ashley Williams
( Front Desk supervisor). I wanted to insure that our room request would be honored upon arrival. (There are only a few (2) Bedroom Suites in their inventory) She assured me that if for any reason it would not be accommodated I would notified. She emailed me the day before to advise that they were not in a sold out position the evening before and that we could even check in early..(Which we did)...
This property is very close to Upscale Shopping at the Houston Galleria. Check-in was handled quickly and professionally. We had to chose either covered or uncovered parking, and we chose the uncovered as it was a bit closer to the front door.
We were a family of (5) Adults, so the (2) bedroom/ (2) Bath suite configuration worked perfectly for us all to shower and prepare for a "formal" evening out. The (2) Bedrooms were separated by a spacious Living Room with a small kitchenette. The rooms were clean and furnishings were well appointed...The beds were comfy and all linens were fresh and clean. We were even lucky enough to be placed in a room with a spacious balcony. Room #224.
We can only comment on the breakfast buffet as we did not partake of the other meals. The Buffet was hot and fresh and provided an array of fresh fruits, pastries of all kinds, juices,ham, eggs and even a self serve make your own waffle station. The Buffet area was well attended by the staff and kept clean and neat.
Please keep in mind this is NOT the Four Seasons....but I found this property Well ABOVE Average for any extended stay hotel. We paid $200,.00 per night, but felt this to be a fantastic Price to have (2) Bedrooms and (2) Full Baths and a common sitting area were we could all be together and chat late into the evening..
Thanks Ashley and the Sonesta ES Staff for making our family getogether a weekend to remember...!!
