We've been staying here since the nineties and while the rooms have changed and the lobby has been updated, the service remains fantastic! It's not the most glamorous hotel in the city, but it's hard to beat the location - actually attached to the Galleria shopping complex, in the heart of uptown.

Stayed here a year ago rooms were comfortable but a little bare, hotel floors were a little noise. could hear every one in the hallways. Small workout room but decent equipment and yes it has a swimming pool that sometimes is open and sometimes its not, seems there is always some work being done. Staff tries their best to accommodate you, they upgraded me when i got their. Lounge in lobby is very small and noisy with a limited selection, their is a sports bar and restaurant attached outside in the Galleria. The hotel has an exit right into the Galleria the prime shopping mall in Houston. if you want to go Ice skating in the summer here is the place. Every imaginable store is here and food chain also. Have fun !

Nice large room. The galleria shopping steps from your room. Meeting rooms were exceptional as were the AV staff.

The staff at this hotel really go above and beyond for patrons and the weddings they host are AMAZING and worthy of the wedding reality shows we see on TV. It's an indoor stroll to The Galleria (a mall that spans FOUR buildings), so it's definitely a great hotel for out-of-towners who want to shop, dine and not worry about a car.

You do have to pay for Wi-Fi at this hotel, but keep in mind you can usually pick up a Wi-Fi signal from a surrounding business in the lobby. There are also several restaurants in the mall that have Wi-Fi. Gigi's is a modern Chinese restaurant that offers Wi-Fi and they have delicious dumplings. On Post Oak and Westheimer there's a Starbucks that's open 24 hours and has plenty of outlets for laptops and free Internet. You can walk to this Starbucks from the hotel/mall.

There's a Cheesecake Factory in this mall too, which gets packed on the weekends, so consider yourself warned. Definitely try to make it an early lunch or late lunch/early dinner if you stop by here. The chicken piccata is great, as is the BBQ chicken salad. They have cheaper prices/smaller portions for lunch during weekdays during standard lunch hours.

I stood there back in 2006 for a family reunion. The party was held in the presidential suite (unbelievably luxe!) although I slept in the regular room. When I didn't have anything else to do, I would walk around in the Galleria. I felt that I owned the mall!!!

Westin Galleria is a really wonderful hotel even for weddings. The ballroom has an overview of downtown Houston. The services is impeccable. Locations is more that what you can ask for which is right in the center of the Galleria. You can even access the hotel through the mall.
