What blew me away was the quality of the room service food. It was well presented, very good and real hot. The room...

We stayed there for 3 days over the Thanksgiving Holiday 2016 and it was marvelous. The staff was friendly, welcoming and genuine. I couldn't find fault with anything. The hotel is beautiful, the location is convenient and vibrant, the lounge and the coffee bar were just what we needed. Not to mention that the rate was awesome. I would have...

I enjoyed everything about my recent stay here. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable and the property is in a great location. My trip was for business and the WiFi and room setup more than served my purposes. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip through Houston.

Stayed at this hotel recently for a conference, and enjoyed it enough that I would pay the extra dollars to stay here outside of the group rate if I had to travel to Houston in the future. I normally don't find that higher-end hotels have enough amenities to make it worth the additional dollars, but the staff, comfy beds, luxurious...

We celebrated my wife's birthday with a romantic evening at Sonesta after dinner and some dancing, very clean and was the perfect setting for us. We had room service bring us up wine and chocolates and we enjoyed our scenic view of our beautiful city.
