This place was ok. It was clean. Staff was very nice. The location is good. But it was just ok. I feel like it photographs better than it actually is. I wouldn't be opposed to staying here again. However for the price point I would not go out of my way. If that makes sense.

Hotel's Favourite
This was an excellent hotel for me on this trip to Houston. It was a great location, friendly staff and the service was excellent. I was in town to attend the Texas Bowl. It was easy to get to the NRG Stadium and also walking distance to the Galleria, which my wife loved.

We enjoyed this corporate-style hotel, which had friendly staff, excellent housekeeping standards, and a particularly good breakfast in the restaurant - either buffet-style or a la carte. Our only negative was that we had understood that this hotel was well placed for walking

Dear Kay, Greetings to you and yours and thank you for joining us during your Houston retreat. Your kind words regarding the attention to detail of our Royal Sonesta Housekeeping colleagues were a delight to read and we are elated to find that you so enjoyed the breakfast options featured in ARA. We apologize for any wait times involved for the shuttle, but as you can appreciate, this complimentary service can be in high-demand during peak travel times. As you have noted, ride-share apps are another option and utilizing these to reach the nearby Galleria would be just a few dollars given our close proximity. Once more, we thank you for taking the time to share your comments and we look forward to one day welcoming you to Houston again. Best Regards, Peter Schreurs Director of Operations

Vilma has been so wonderful throughout my entire stay at the Royal Sonesta. She personally opened my bottle of wine for me, allowed me to “taste test” the wine, and then asked me if there was anything else she could do for me. Upon request of putting the charge on my personal

I was having problems with my wine bottle opener and Vilma came up to my room in a matter of minutes of me calling the front desk. She was so sweet and even though it was not wine I ordered from room service, she offered to get me ice to chill it, pour me a glass and ask if
