Everyone is extremely pleasant and friendly. I’ve gotten to know a lot of the staff - bar tenders, waiters, check in hosts. My service has always been superb! Excellent quality furnishings, very clean and modern designs. Rooms are quiet and well insulated from your neighbors.

Dear Almond_thief, It has always been a treat to welcome you and we thank you for continuing to visit, even after your move to Houston. Your review is most appreciated, especially your comments highlighting Milton and Estefania, two of our many gems. We understand your need for Houston hotel rooms is not as great given your recent relocation, but we do invite you to make use of our Travel Pass Program and consider visits at some of our other Royal Sonesta hotels including New Orleans, Boston, St. Louis, or even a staycation in Houston! Once more, we thank you for sharing your kind words and we look forward to welcoming you again, hopefully, one day soon. Warm Regards, Peter Schreurs Director of Operations

Stayed for 3 nights for business. The hotel room is nice and clean. The complimentary shuttle is very convenient. The staff at the club lounge, Milton, is very friendly and helpful. I’ll definitely stay here again in the future.

Our room (double queen) was clean, but felt small and extremely crammed for 2 adults with little luggage. Due to a lower ceiling, the bathroom felt even smaller. Parking was convenient on-site, but very crowded on a SA night. Staff was friendly. Location in the Galleria area
