    • Free WiFi

    5.0-star Hotel Class

    Sitting about a mile from The Galleria, The St. Regis Houston is one of only a few five-star hotels in the city.

    5.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Inspired by Old World Italy, the Hotel Granduca treats Houston visitors to a taste of Europe.

    Omni Houston Hotel
    Houston, TX
    4.6 miles to city center
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    Sitting less than 2 miles from The Galleria, these luxurious digs beckon to shoppers with high-end taste. Guest rooms at this Omni property look like they belong in on a magazine cover, with stylish gold and black decor and fantastic views. In fact, black is the Omni Houston Hotel's signature color: The hue permeates the hotel, from the property's pet black swans (yes, swans) to the swanky Black Swan bar and Birdies Cafe & Bar. But not everything about this hotel comes in such dark attire; the Mokara Spa, for example, appears bright and refreshing, while the outdoor pool and deck see plenty of sunshine. Most visitors love the feel of the property (in addition to its good looks) and appreciate its convenient Houston location. Guest rooms feature marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and coffee makers. Recent visitors do warn that all the superfluity comes at a price. Like its sister hotel, the Omni Houston Hotel Westside, the Omni Houston Hotel accepts and doles out Omni Select Guest rewards.

    • Free Breakfast

    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free Breakfast

    Formerly an InterContinental hotel, the Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria 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 Houston Galleria's luxurious feel. Though, some still feel service isn't as good as it once was. Visitors describe the guest rooms as plush and spacious, approving of the simple, neutral decor and cozy beds. The Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria also wows with its fifth-floor outdoor swimming pool and 24-hour fitness center. Many guests find the international fare served at ARA Restaurant to be well above par and the restaurant staff to be excellent.

    The Westin Galleria Houston
    Houston, TX
    4.9 miles to city center
    • Free Parking

    4.5-star Hotel Class
    • Free Parking

    Serious shoppers (aka shopaholics) should look no further: This Westin, as its name suggests, is not just next to, but actually connected to The Galleria. The hotel even gives guests a complimentary "Passport to Shopping," which contains exclusive coupons for some of the stores. Chances are that if you're staying here, you won't be spending much time in the hotel itself. But if you need a break from mall madness, this Houston property boasts all the Westin classics, including Heavenly Beds and a WestinWORKOUT fitness studio, as well as a pool and the trendy White Oak Kitchen + Drinks restaurant (which is shared with its neighboring sister hotel). Though some guests complain about the high room rates and hefty parking fees, members of the Marriott Bonvoy programs can save some dough by paying with rewards points.

    Houston Marriott Medical Center
    Houston, TX
    2.9 miles to city center
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Even though it's a hop, skip and a jump away from a number of medical facilities, this Marriott is not just for those visiting a doctor. The hotel is about a 2-mile drive from many of Houston's most popular attractions, and it's also located nearby a light rail stop. Guests love the location, and they appreciate the Houston Marriott Medical Center's climate-controlled skyway to Methodist Hospital. Visitors also praise the accommodations that feature standard Marriott amenities, like flat-screen TVs and minifridges. Other property perks include an indoor pool and a fitness center. And in terms of eats, Driscoll's and the Paladora Lounge both serve up hearty plates of casual American fare, while an on-site Starbucks is convenient for those in need of a morning pick-me-up. While some recent guests found the property underwhelming, they commended the hospitable staff for making their visit memorable. And because this is a Marriott property, costs can be covered by rewards from the brand's loyalty program.

    Hilton Houston Post Oak
    Houston, TX
    4.6 miles to city center
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    The Hilton Houston Post Oak is just about a 9-mile drive west of downtown Houston. One of its most talked about attributes is its free shuttle, which transports guests to places within a 3-mile radius of the hotel (like The Galleria). But most hotel patrons seem to stay here on business since its location is close to corporate destinations without the downtown price tags. With spacious rooms and a pet-friendly policy, this hotel is also a good choice for families. Kids can take advantage of in-room video games (pre-loaded onto 42-inch plasma TVs), while parents can unwind on one of the signature Serenity beds. The all-American cuisine served at The Promenade caters to both child-like and mature tastes. No matter the reason for the stay, recent guests say this Hilton is a good value for the money. Because of its ties to the Hilton brand, this hotel provides perks and rewards points to Hilton Honors club members.

    Houston, TX
    4.4 miles to city center
    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Travelers admit the main reason for a visit to this Marriott is for business. Rooms were described as average, but comfortable thanks to amenities like minifridges, coffee makers, high-speed internet access (available for a fee) and flat-screen TVs with premium channels. When booking your accommodations, consider asking for a room that doesn't face the noisy road – a tip from recent visitors. The hotel also boasts a fitness center, an indoor pool and a bistro that serves Southwestern fare. Lodgers here in particular appreciated the staff's accommodating nature and eager-to-please attitude, especially from those present in the concierge lounge. While this Marriott outpost does host a lot of business travelers, it's also a great option for shoppers. The hotel is situated about 1 mile north of The Galleria mall, and is surrounded by smaller shopping plazas. What's more, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to and from the mall. The Houston Marriott West Loop is located about 8 miles west of downtown Houston and about 16 miles northwest of the William P. Hobby Airport.

    Sheraton Suites Houston Near The Galleria
    Houston, TX
    4.5 miles to city center
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    As its name suggests, the all-suite Sheraton Suites Houston Near The Galleria is adjacent to The Galleria, a Houston shopping complex that spans 2.4 million square feet. The hotel's convenient location and free shuttle service (which stops within a 3-mile radius) make this Sheraton-affiliated property a great option for travelers interested in a shopping-centric getaway. But visitors have access to a plethora of on-site amenities as well, including an outdoor pool, a 24-hour fitness center, the Wild Plum Lounge and the Sage Restaurant, where regional American dishes are served. And in each of the hotel's suites, lodgers will find at least 416 square feet of space and perks like a separate living area, a minifridge and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Club-level suites come with additional conveniences like free breakfast, snacks and beverages daily. Previous guests loved the extras offered in Club-level suites, while those who stayed in standard suites praised the accommodations' ample space and comfortable beds. The biggest gripes for some were the smaller size of the outdoor pool and the high parking fees (which start at $22 per vehicle for overnight self-parking). Because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Hilton Houston Galleria Area
    Houston, TX
    7.6 miles to city center
    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    As its name suggests, the Hilton Houston Galleria Area is located near The Galleria mall in Houston. This Hilton outpost – which participates in the brand's Hilton Honors rewards program – features guest rooms and suites with neutral color schemes, HD televisions, minifridges and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Executive rooms, meanwhile, include added perks like free breakfast and hors d'oeuvres, which are served in the concierge lounge on weekdays. All guests can use the property's other facilities, including a fitness center, a business center, an outdoor swimming pool and Veranda Kitchen and Bar, an American-inspired restaurant that's open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Most prior visitors were impressed with the hotel's friendly staff and the restaurant's "excellent" food, though some reported malfunctioning air conditioners and tired decor inside their accommodations. Another drawback: the property's removed location. Although the hotel offers complimentary shuttle service around the Galleria area, many of Houston's other top attractions, such as the Houston Zoo and the Children's Museum of Houston, sit roughly 8 miles away in the city's Museum District.
