We stayed over the weekend before Christmas at the Royal Sonesta. We flew in on an early flight and they were very accommodating in letting us check in early (9am!!). The staff made a point to ask and remember the kids names and would ask how they were doing by name. We had the concierge level (I can't remember what it was called) but this allowed us to go into the lounge and included a hot breakfast. We just went to the hot breakfast buffet and then were able to eat in the lounge with our own water.
Our room had two queen beds and a very small seating area but I didn't feel cramped. The location was very convenient for us because there was very easy access to 610. We also went to a Houston's game and found it easy to get there.
The hotel itself was so beautiful with it's artful glassworks. You really felt like you were in a fancy hotel in Europe rather than downtown Houston. At the time of our stay the fitness room was being renovated so my husband and I took a morning walk around the area. It was walking distance to the Galleria.
If we were to go to Houston again, I would not hesitate on making the Royal Sonesta my hotel.
