I am at a stage in my travels where I have certain minimum standards for hotels that are above a 3 star and you are shelling out money for. Little things such as having complimentary water in the room, having a dental kit with toothbrush and paste, not paying for parking...etc My room at the Royal Sonesta was solid in...

Stayed in this hotel about a month ago. Great location, a big mall just about 15 minutes walk. Besides, quite a few shops around the hotel area like Wholefood Market, Container Store, Vietnamese restaurant, etc.... No car rental in the hotel. But the concierge is always there to help and friendly. Great room, clean and fresh...

Amazing staff, very helpful. Hotel is modern and clean. Great location, few minutes from Galleria on a comfortable walk. Rooms are very quiet (even with heavy traffic on the vicinity) and I liked the modern decoration.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel while I traveled for work. It was a last minute booking, and it was a great find! Very reasonably priced, in a fantastic area, and an absolutely lovely hotel. Rooms were spacious, staff was friendly, would definitely stay there again.

There is nothing special about this hotel. Rooms are ordinary, the location is average - our room faced a main road, so just cars and more cars to view. Indeed it is close to Galleria Houston, so yes, if you are in Houston for shopping, you'll appreciate the proximity. Really chill in the lobby area, we wanted to have dinner...

I attended a meeting at this hotel. It was a lovely property from guest rooms to meeting space. The catered breakfast was excellent. The banquet and convention services staff went above and beyond. My only complaints about this hotel are (1) it is a long way from the airport and (2) the entrance off of the access road is tricky...

This was my first stay at a Sonesta Hotel, and I certainly hope it will not be the last! I had a beautiful, spotless, inviting room with a comfortable bed, well-designed bathroom and plenty of lights and charging ports. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was outstanding. I also appreciated the New Orleans touch -- PJ's Coffee...

Outstanding hotel, and the service from all employees was excellent. Both of our stays this month at the Royal Sonesta Houston was as good an experience as my wife and I have encountered in our many years of travels. Thanks to all your staff!
