Westin Oaks Houston at the Galleria
Ranked #134 of 517 Hotels in Houston
Reviewed 3 September 2014 via mobile

Nice beds, nice pillows. The room was pretty, the view was panoramic, I was on the 20 floor, by the elevator, and did not hear any noise. It was very quiet. The staff was kind. It wasn't a stellar experience. When I leave, I won't remember it for long, so it didn't make much of an impression.

We wanted to take advantage of Westin's "Unwind" program, which promised beer and wine tastings in the hotel bar. Unfortunately, the bar does not provide that program as advertised nor is it even OPEN on weekends! Very odd. In addition, there is coffee in the room, however sugar and creamer is not even provided. When staying in a hotel that promotes itself as luxury, one generally feels treated special. We came here for a staycation and just found it to be a terrible, terrible choice for that. The Galleria traffic is awful, the pool area is just a depressing and dismal concrete landscape, and the pillows are soft piles of mush. This hotel would be fine if I was expecting something very basic. It was clean and the rooms were quiet. I was hoping for something special. Nope.

Dear Cpower,

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Westin Oaks. We regret any inconveniences you endured during your visit. It is disappointing to hear that our Street Level Lobby bar was not open during your visit. We do offer another bar at White Oaks Kitchen+Drinks on the third floor of the hotel. We hope you will allow us the opportunity to host you in the future so that we may provide you with a true Westin experience.

Best wishes,

We stayed here for one night en route home from Galveston and enjoyed it very much. The location is excellent, right at the Galleria and next to the Cheesecake Factory. You can actually walk into the Galleria from the hotel. The room was huge and the beds very comfortable, definitely no complaints. The bathroom was a decent size as well. Customer service was okay, nothing to rave about, especially not having come from another hotel with awesome service. My only complaint is not having free wi-fi outside of the lobby area. A bit perturbed about it since most hotels offer free wi-fi. We stayed only a night so I could live with that. I took off a star because of the lack of free wi-fi. Also, valet parking is not really necessary because there is an entrance in the parking garage that leads direct to the hotel elevators, save yourself some money and park the car yourself.

Location is great. Right next to the Galleria Mall and to some fine restaurants. Rooms are very spacious but this property needs some remodeling. Customer service is good but don't expect them to look very happy for seeing you.

Stayed there on a business trip recently. Decent enough hotel in a great location. Staff were attentive and friendly and the room was large and clean enough. No card for TV listings provided which was a little inconvenient. Location is the winner here as it is linked to the Galleria Mall. The gym was a little tiny. Overall would stay here again if I ever were in Houston for business.
