Club Lounge Services A+

San Antonio, Texas

I always feel welcomed in the Club Lounge due to Milton. It's because of my interactions with Milton that I continue to stay at the Royal Sonesta every time I commute to Houston for work. Thank you Milton for the best customer service experience!

Great location, friendly service

Lake Charles, Louisiana

We attended an event with our kids on a Friday night and needed a good hotel for a quick overnight stay. We arrived very late but the desk service was very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a fantastic location which was convenient for the following day- right at the Galleria. Our room was nice, and the bedding was comfortable. A nice touch was the LED lighting under the nightstand that turned on automatically on a sensor as you walked- especially taking my youngest to the restroom at night.w it made a perfect path in the night. A few things needed to be updated- the bathroom mirror was cracked on the edge, the caulking around the tub faucet had come loose, the bathroom baseboards were a little grosse... may sound minor but definitely brought a little dated feeling to the room. However, we would definitely stay again due to the location and cleanliness. Plus, the next morning going to the PJs cafe downstairs was perfect- it had good quick breakfast choices and the barista was so friendly! Safe travels!
