How it Ranks: Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston ranks #19 out of 184 Houston Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.

Our Take: Formerly an InterContinental hotel, the Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston occupies prime real-estate near The Galleria — and thanks to the hotel's complimentary shuttle, you don't have to spend all your shopping money on transportation. Recent guests say that they were wary of the property's re-branding, but were pleasantly surprised by the Royal Sonesta's luxurious feel. Visitors describe the guest rooms as plush and spacious, approving of the simple, neutral decor and cozy beds. The Royal Sonesta also wows with its fifth floor outdoor swimming pool and its 24-hour fitness center. Many guests find the international fare served at ARA Restaurant to be well above par and the customer service to be excellent.
