Complimentary area shuttle, rooftop pool and on-site restaurant received high praise
Customer service received mixed reviews
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.
