My family took a mini vacation this weekend to Houston. We love Houston because it is a short drive from home and packed with tons of activities for the kids. We decided to mix things up a bit and stayed at the Royal Sonesta for the first time. We were very impressed! With a name like “Royal” Sonesta, I guess we should have expected luxury, but we weren’t expecting it like this! I was impressed right from the beginning with how easy it was to access from the interstate and how close it is to the Galleria. This meant that I wouldn’t be driving all over Houston looking for fun activities for the family; they were all right there!
When we walked in the Royal Sonesta; the elegance of the entry was amazing. There is a stunning chandelier that hangs the entire length of the entryway along the side of the lounge. I have never seen a chandelier like this one in my life! The staff were very helpful and check in was a breeze! We all grabbed sandwiches and chips from the Launch and were off! Well, before we were off; I have to tell you that my wife loved the chicken salad!
After a day of fun; we were ready to head back to the hotel and relax. Relax, we did! After relaxing in the room for a while, we decided to take the kids downstairs and let them explore the lobby. The lobby is massive and there was plenty of room for the kids to walk around without disturbing anyone.
The next morning, before we checked out, we took the kids to the pool, which is on the roof of the 5th floor. This was a lot of fun! The pool was a perfect way for us to start our last day in Houston. After getting out of the pool, cleaned up and packed up; we, sadly, had to check out. The Royal Sonesta has express checkout, which made our day run very smoothly. The Royal Sonesta is definitely our hotel of choice now when staying in Houston.
