Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Formerly the Intercontinental, Texas’ first Royal Sonesta property underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation project to earn its regal title. Located in the swanky Uptown Galleria district, the hotel is just 15 minutes from downtown Houston.
Rooms feature custom-designed furnishings, contemporary art, crisp white bedding and oversized windows with views of downtown, the Galleria or Memorial Park. Suites accommodate larger groups and families with sofa beds and dining areas. Upgrading to the Concierge Level gains access for guests to a private lounge for a complimentary breakfast and evening cocktails. All accommodations feature free Wi-Fi.
Globally inspired cuisine is paired with selections from the generous wine cellar at ARA restaurant against a backdrop of hardwood floors and banquette leather booths. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For after-dinner drinks, visitors can gather at Axis Lounge or come early for happy-hour specials starting at 5pm Sunday-Thursday.
To accommodate even the busiest travelers, the hotel offers 24-hour in-room dining and a fitness center open around the clock. Those looking to soak up the Texas sunshine can head to the fifth-floor outdoor pool, and a complimentary shuttle transports guests within a three-mile radius of the hotel.
