Overview

Recent guests appreciated the free self-parking areas and the warm and friendly staff
Some past travelers found the accommodations to be a bit bland

The Galleria is so big that it can accommodate two separate Westins, each containing more than 400 rooms. This one provides many of the same amenities as its sister, The Westin Galleria Houston, including a fitness center and a pool. This property also offers access to the acclaimed White Oak Kitchen + Drinks restaurant. Yet guests don't seem as fond of this property, saying that the room rates were too high for what they described as a relatively bland hotel. Recent visitors did, however, enjoy the city views from the spacious guest rooms, the friendly customer service, the signature Heavenly Beds and the complimentary self-parking facilities (a rarity in city hotels). What's more, because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
