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!

I had a delicious pasta with shrimps in an excellent restaurante (ARA) with a very tranquil environment. Also very nice pastries for breakfast. I've had them all! Extremely comfortable room with an exceptional view to the Galleria. I'd come back for sure!

This property was a hot mess... torn wallpaper, loose carpet and puckered paint on the bathroom ceiling from unattended leaks. In spite of the shoddy upkeep, there is no complimentary water or coffee in the room and... it took 30 minutes to get coffee delivered. Let's face it, rolling out of bed to a hot cup of coffee is a morning mainstay.… Read more

Let's face it, rolling out of bed to a hot cup of coffee is a morning mainstay. Bottom line: The Royal Sonesta in Houston is out of touch with both guest needs and their maintenance crew. Read less

Room was clean, service was great, and price was unbeatable for the quality of the room. Location was good, but after arriving found out was not as convenient to the venue as expected. Location was near the Galleria, and good restaurants were in easy drive. Parking was easy, if a little expensive.

We had a few days in Houston late September early October, primarily to visit the Johnson Space Centre. This hotel was fabulous - the room was clean and comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful, and the small shop in the foyer was handy. Bar in the foyer was a great place to relax after a long day out and about. Well located to get to the Galleria for shopping, and the hotel shuttle extremely useful to get around locally in Houston's heat. If we return to Houston, this is where we will stay. Read less
