This hotel is in the Galleria shopping mall. Yes, there are newer hotels nearby, but during summertime in Houston--- you do not want to be outside even for a few minutes. The heat and humidity are extreme. Ladies, your hair will fall and makeup will melt.
At the Westin Oaks, you can park for free and never get out in the heat. Yes, the carpet needs replacing, but it was clean and there were no stains. The workers in the lobby were very friendly. They have free newspapers in the lobby; USA TODAY, Houston Chronicle and WSJ. Also free internet in the lobby. Large flat screen tv in the rooms.
The rooms are large. Plenty to see and do in the mall. Lots of great places to eat.
Ask for a room on the back side of the hotel; the front rooms face Westheimer Rd and there is traffic noise.
The Galleria has 2 of some stores...even 2 Macy's dept. stores. We parked and didn't get in our car again until time to leave.
