Right off the highway, and within walking distance of the Galleria and any number of shops and restaurants, the Royal Sonesta was great selection for the conference I attended. My room was spacious and comfortable. Overall the event staff did a great job with the conference; food was quite good (i.e., no conference rubbery chicken!). The only downside was that...

The Royal Sonesta is a beautiful hotel and the staff is very good. The attention to detail is a key point of their approach. They made our staff's job seamless and were always available to answer any questions and address any needs. Our members had a great experience! We look forward to coming back.

Our room had a panoramic view of Houston, a wirting desk and a wrap around sofa in addition to the standard bed, bureau,HD TV and refrig. The bed was comfortable, which is very important...

We found the hotel very clean, accommodating, with excellent staff. Was involved with the event and found the staff in all the meeting rooms, gatherings, and service of food to be excellent. I would highly recommend that any company use this hotel as a venue for their gatherings.

Room smelled really bad the second day, apparently a sewer pipe broke in the building and the room smelled like a sewage treatment plant. Other than that it was a nice hotel, the bar was a great place to socialize at the end of the day.

The hotel staff went above and beyond in their love for what they do and you can tell from their attitudes.

Place was super nice. Was able to walk to Galleria and dinner! I've never slept so good at a hotel before! Stayed only one night but was worth every dime we spent. I'll be looking for a Sonesta for future hotel stays! Thank you Sonesta!
