Room smelled really bad the second day, apparently a sewer pipe broke in the building and the room smelled like a sewage treatment plant. Other than that it was a nice hotel, the bar was a great place to socialize at the end of the day.

Place was super nice. Was able to walk to Galleria and dinner! I've never slept so good at a hotel before! Stayed only one night but was worth every dime we spent. I'll be looking for a Sonesta for future hotel stays! Thank you Sonesta!

Ok location, about a mile away from the Galleria mall. Nothing else around the hotel besides a Maggianos. Beds are comfy, nice amenities and turn down service on the concierge floor. Breakfast at concierge level is ok - eggs were cold but they had a great yogurt drink! I would stay here again.

The location is ideal to all types of shopping -- Montrose section, Ikea and Galleria -- and the beds are so comfortable after a long day! I look forward to the next time we do "girls shopping weekend" there.
