Overview

A chic boutique stay in Houston's high-end Uptown District, near the city's legendary Galleria

The Lowdown

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.

Rooms

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. 

Dining

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. 

Location

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.

The first ever review written by a sane person

Hi, me, a rational person, would like to let you know that this hotel and staff is what the kids call “lit;” if lit meant quiet and full of congenial dispositions and customer service. An important message about extending my room never made it to them from some dumb app like Booking.com (the one for jail) or auntcation.org, and NAS easily handled it for me. I got to extend last second and am quite pleased. As far as I’m concerned, as Nas’s go, the tru Esco is in the Galleria area in Texas. Stay here.

Good location...average room...terrible staffing issues

Our room at first appeared orderly and well maintained. But on further inspection, the room had some issue. The blinds were by no means blackout--there was a huge amount of light let into our room in the morning. There is only a shower--which when you are traveling with a 4 year old who hates getting water in her eyes--its a problem. The beds were incredibly soft. We couldn't get the netflix on the TV to work. And the room had a pervasive smell of urine that only got worse since our room was not cleaned while we were there. We were there for two nights and our room was NEVER cleaned. We did not have the do not disturb sign up, so it should have been cleaned.

The fire alarm when off at 6am for about 10 minutes. Let me tell you it was LOUD--which is great if it was a real fire--not great when some fool just pulled the fire alarm for giggles. There was no apology from the staff on this.

Plus parking is $17/day for self park.

No real benefits for Marriott Platinum member either.
