This hotel is nice enough, but they're short-staffed and unable to resolve any issues that arise. I've been trying to call both the front desk and accounting for days about a billing error they made, and no one picks up/no one seems able to help. I've sat on the line for minutes as the guest services representative simply speaks to other people, and I'm incredibly frustrated that something as simple as a bill has taken multiple phone calls and is still unresolved. Would not recommend, simply for the lack of guest services. They also mislead on certain charges; for example, I called in advance to verify the pet fee, but when I arrived a day later they had bumped it up by $100. They said the higher rate was "new."

Dear aev907, Greetings from Houston and thank you for sharing your review. We are warmed to know that our design and guest rooms provided an ideal space to relax while in Houston though we are sorry to learn of your billing inquiries and we apologize for any delays in having those resolved. I’ve spoken with my colleague Justin who is able to research details related to billing and he is hoping to partner with you to research these matters further. We both believe that if you were quoted an earlier pet fee rather than the updated rate, it is only right that we honor the previous fee. Again, Justin would be happy to make these corrections and work with you to ensure everything is promptly resolved. With that in mind, I encourage you to email him with your contact and reservation details, at jchemelowski@sonesta.com. In your message, you might also let him know the best time to be in touch. We thank you again and we look forward to helping you resolve this in the days ahead. All the best, Arvin Missick Director of Operations

Hotel's Favourite
We just stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights, and had a delightful experience. In these strange days of COVID, we found ourselves almost alone at this wonderful property. From check-in to check-out, everyone at this hotel was awesome. While services were reduced, i.e. no bellman, concierge or valet parking, they still had a restaurant and bar open for business, and we found all the employees very attentive. Our room was extremely clean, as was the entire property including the on-site gym facility. Special shout-outs to Tugkan and Michael who staffed the bar for great drinks and conversation, and Rosie in the Cafe for going the extra mile in accommodating special dietary needs on the fly. As our son just relocated to Houston, we will definitely be back and will be staying at this property!

I came to Houston and stayed in the Royal Sonesta Houstor Galleria Hotel. I wasn't feeling good after the second dose of the Vaccine and due to the pandemic, room service is not available. However Milton from ARA Restaurant here at the hotel, was so kind and considerate that he brought me a delicious breakfast to my room. His positive attitude, great spirit and wonderful customer care is something I will never forget. Thank you Milton! The world needs more people like you. :)

Great location and price, but our room was sub par at best. I know we are operating Post Pandemic, but alot has gone by the wayside. The sink didn't drain well, there was a sewage-like smell coming from the bathroom and silverfish in the bathtub. The headboards were peeling and the "leather" from the headboard was in our bed. Lampshades in the common areas were cracked and needed replacement. As with most hotels right now, there is no daily housekeeping unless you request it however, when we asked for a quick clean up, trash to be taken out, vacuum and fresh towels...it took calling twice to actually get someone there within a 5 hour period. They left us 2 towels (for 4 people) and about 8 sheets, which we didn't need or ask for. 2 rolls of TP and 2 boxes of Kleenex???? NO vacuum and 1/2 the trash was taken out. Valet parking was the only saving grace of this property, they did an excellent job.
