It was our first time in Houston, the hotel was great! The Aloft is within walking distance of shops, restaurants and Waterwall attraction. We were traveling with pets and it was awesome receiving treats upon check in. Raveen at the front desk was really helpful and insightful about where to go for New Years Eve and what to see around....

This little jazzy place puts a whole new twist on hotel atmosphere. Most of all the customer service was so amazing they treat you like you are family. I really appreciated how well my husband and I were treated. Also great prices and the cheapest paid parking in the area that I know of. Thank you for the pleasant experience

If you stay here, don't use your debit card for the incidentals fee as they don't care about reimbursing it. Have spoken with the staff and they've said they would get back to me. No response. Room was alright.

This is a 1 night only hotel.

From start to finish, this hotel is pretty horrendous. This is my second time staying here for work while visiting Houston and it will definitely be my last. At check-in, I was greeted by one of the rudest men. He snapped at Spanish speaking employees (in a derogatory manner) who were being 100% polite to him. How this man got...

Great hotel!!!! I really enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were clean, fresh and comfortable. The bedding is really comfortable also and very clean. For the price using my AAA discount this hotel is well worth the stay.

Think fancy college dorm in a great location with a shwanky lobby bar. This place is near the Galleria and nest to Ruths Chris, across from several other eateries too. The staff were very nice and a true asset to this property. Yet it was the bed that made me a very happy camper: soft enough yet firm enough --...

Decided to go to Houston solo for Halloween weekend. Love staying here. Jerry and the aloha welcome desk staff were friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. Jerry and staff made this visit a-mazing. He knew several local spots to visit, remembered my name, and appreciated my SPG Gold Status. The pool is underwhelming and usually has a gaggle of small children. However,...

We stayed at the hotel on 10/22/16. The first thing we noticed was the room was not that clean. The most disgusting thing was brown stains on the wall near the commode, not small, bigger than a finger print. Item 2, the elevator had a mind of its own. Having pressed the lobby it went down to the 2 floor...

We stayed at this Aloft for the weekend. The place was very clean. We had trouble with the AC but they fixed it right away. The best part of our stay was that they are very pet friendly. We travel with our 2 small dogs and this is very important. They provide a goodie bag for your pet and the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Appealing to on-the-go and in-the-know travelers, the Aloft rooms at Aloft Houston by the Galleria are equally carefree and bold. Nine-foot ceilings and extra-large windows create a bright, airy environment full of natural light. You’ll face the windows—not the walls—as you drift to sleep in our ultra-comfortable platform bed topped with plush bedding. Choose a 285-square-foot king room for one big bed, or grab a little more breathing room in the 315-square-foot rooms with two queen beds. Business or pleasure, work or play, each loft-like space keeps you connected. Your always-available in-room “office” includes an ergonomic workspace, plus complimentary wired and wireless High Speed Internet Access. You have your own entertainment center thanks to plug & play, our one-stop connectivity station. Leave your chargers at home: it juices up all your electronics—laptop, cell phone, MP3 player, and more—and connects them to a wall-mounted 42” flat-screen TV. A flip of the switch gives you high-def screening of your favorite flicks (or tomorrow’s presentation). In the sleek stylish bathroom, details are designed to stimulate your senses. Natural light illuminates the walk-in shower through a full-length frosted glass panel, which faces the guest room for a free flow of light with plenty of privacy. The eco-friendly dispenser doles out super-sudsy bath amenities specially created for Aloft Hotels by Bliss® Spa. Every Aloft room is attuned to you: whether you’re settling in or zipping out the door, you’ll find a host of helpful standard amenities to customize your experience. ... more   less
