Elevate your Lone Star State stay at Aloft Houston by the Galleria. A member of Starwood’s eponymous boutique label, this stay keeps you in style, from the minute you walk in the door. Steps from the Galleria, one of TripAdvisor’s top 15 things to do in this sprawling metropolis, it boasts modern architecture and equally hip interiors. Décor is young and fresh; your room even stocks bath amenities by Bliss.
You’re a PYT just for staying here, so act the part: Meet and mingle with other guests at w xyz bar, over a craft cocktail and a snack, or hit re:mix lounge for games, TVs and pool tables. Swim in the indoor pool, recharge in the gym, or snag a healthy bite at the re:fuel grab-and-go 24/7 mini-market. Cruise around Houston and see the city sights, too. And make sure they include the Galleria, with its 2.4 million square feet of shopping space, so that you can dress the part.
In your Aloft abode, Starwood’s signature brand of comfort and style meets ultra-trendy city living, and the look of a high-tech office meets that of a home-entertainment center (think a 42-in. flat-panel cable LCD TV). Your ceilings will soar at nine feet, and light streams through the oversized windows. Some other perks include your signature platform bed and 300-thread-count sheets.
Re:Fuel is a grab-and-go self-serve eatery with an enticing mix of healthy snacks, sweet treats, drinks, coffees and more. This convenient mini-market is open 24/7, too. For evening cocktails, w xyz bar serves craft cocktails and a snack menu, plus plays mood music and hosts lively events.
Houston is the largest city in Texas, with tons of culture and energy to keep you busy during your Lone Star getaway. Aloft puts you in the heart of the Uptown District, a high-end destination where upscale retail shops line the streets. Just blocks away is the legendary Galleria mall, offering a variety of shopping and entertainment options, while Memorial Park, golf courses and the zoo are within five miles. Downtown’s Museum District and sports venues are also just a short drive.
How to Get There
Such loud music at this hotel. They say its a private party but I am staying here too. Hour number 2 of deep bass and I have work in the morning. Spoke with operator but she was no help. Manager said it should be over at 9pm. It's now 912pm. Still raging on.
Stay at an Aloft for the first time. It had a modern urban style. Room was decent size with a metal and wood decor in a loft type layout. The layout was a little different than a typical hotel. But fit with a downtown type feel.
Not much room for hanging clothes as it was more a a niche are in the bathroom. Other than that it was fine. Had a nice little lobby bar and an area for grab and go eats.
Nice option to the Marriotts in the same area that are $100+ more a night.
Very clean hotel in a very good, walk-able location. It is walking distance to the Galleria and many restaurants. The parking was a little expensive and the pool was small but other than that, pretty good.
We stayed at the Aloft for our anniversary weekend. Our first time in Houston and we really enjoyed this hotel. The staff was very nice. Love how they have a dj on Friday nights to hangout downstairs are their cute, hip bar and outside by their fire pits. Can't hear the music in your room which is nice! The location of the hotel is nice too, about 20 minutes from downtown but we were okay with that. The only downside was they only had one elevator going.
Ok, this hotel is very hip! Definitely eclectic.. I like the location of this hotel because you are close to several good restaurants which are in walking distance. The lobby does offer a good bar and live music in the evening.
