Royal Sonesta Houston

Houston, Texas

The hotel

If you love to shop you’ve come to the right hotel! The Royal Sonesta is only a few miles from downtown Houston and just a short walk from The Galleria shopping mall. What’s more, if you don’t fancy walking or driving there, simply hop on the complimentary shuttle bus to and from, it couldn’t be easier! Just a few miles from downtown, there’s plenty to see close by, if you can tear yourself away from the hotel that is. Very comfortable indeed with spacious rooms furnished in a cool and contemporary manner, you’ll also love the relaxed atmosphere that prevails. Grab a towel and head to the outdoor swimming pool on the 5th floor, perfect for unwinding by in-between bouts of sightseeing. The Restaurant is also a lovely place to linger awhile with its leather banquette seating and bold splashes of colour. Serving international favourites and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we’re sure you’ll become a frequent visitor during your time here. For evening cocktails, head to the Lobby Lounge, also the venue for a spot of live entertainment every now and again!

As a “road warrior”, I stay at a different hotels every week. If cloning a human was a perfect science, every hotel would have to have a “Milton”.

As a “road warrior”, I stay at a different hotels every week. If cloning a human was a perfect science, every hotel would have to have a “Milton”. Milton is the host in the evening and when he hands you a glass of wine after a long day, it is executed with a sincere elegance. This is a rare aspect of hospitality these days. He is very much appreciated by all. We were discussing how he should have a much cooler uniform to wear to distinguish him as he does cater to the hotel’s elite. Perhaps a Miami vice look and pipe some lounge music in while you’re at it!! :) Thank you Milton😊 Read less
