I was here for only one night for work, and my stay was great! The front desk attendant was quite cheery and helpful and my room was perfectly nice. There is a small little 'store' downstairs and a bar with standard snacks and drinks. I think the best part was being able to sit outside on the patio in February...

I have stayed here twice now because I got the room from an 'express' deal so I didn't know the hotel. I would never pick this as a hotel to stay in if I had other choices. Much to modern, odd layout and to be honest the folks that were staying were not what I normally find in a hotel...

Thank you for your recent review about your stay. The Aloft concept is truly very modern in style and décor, along with a hip and sassy vibe the our guest enjoy. Our most sincere apologies for the uncomfortable pool temperature but have corrected the issue since then. Our common areas have a wide variety of modern and eclectic music playing...

Positives: Fairly updated and modern Location Fast wired internet (didn't use wifi) Negative: Weird, stagnant smell AC would not get cold. Room stayed at 71 and HUMID and no matter what I chose (manual fan, auto fan) it wouldn't adjust It's a budget hotel, but I'm really missing the Westin right now. My stay at Element was better as well.

I prepaid for this hotel before I read the reviews and when I read so many bad reviews began to worry. But it was better than I had imagined. Room was basically clean, though the shower had the same rust-colored mold other people described. The place has a hyper trendy vibe which I found self-referential and kind of annoying. I...

I really enjoyed my stay while I was there. I loved how the room was set up and the bed was really comfortable. Location was very good as well. The omelette I had in the morning was a bit less than what I expected, but it was still really good. Walls are really thin as well but overall, I had...

It's 18.00 a night to park. 9.00 for a small omelette that looked microwaved. AC/heater unit loud and smelled musty. Elevators were broken. So much noise in the mornings..walls are thin. Could hear voices and music from other room through vent in the shower. Car was broken into across street and took my purse.

I stayed a long weekend at the aloft Houston Galleria. A strip mall across the street includes a sub shop with excellent sandwiches and an upscale restaurant, with additional eating options within 10 minutes walk, including at the Galleria.

I hate to write negative reviews, but I have submitted a lot of feedback to the hotel itself with no response. Maybe I have bad luck, but I go to Houston a lot for work, and so far, the hotels have been very disappointing. As member of the excellent SPG program, I was eager to try this aloft hotel--I had...

This hotel is fairly well located in the galleria area, a short walk down the street to the mall. It offers no restaurant a small gym and pool but a nice bar area. The rates are quite reasonable for the area and the rooms are functional but small. As an example, you would only have enough closet space (if that's...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Appealing to on-the-go and in-the-know travelers, the Aloft rooms at Aloft Houston by the Galleria are equally carefree and bold. Nine-foot ceilings and extra-large windows create a bright, airy environment full of natural light. You’ll face the windows—not the walls—as you drift to sleep in our ultra-comfortable platform bed topped with plush bedding. Choose a 285-square-foot king room for one big bed, or grab a little more breathing room in the 315-square-foot rooms with two queen beds. Business or pleasure, work or play, each loft-like space keeps you connected. Your always-available in-room “office” includes an ergonomic workspace, plus complimentary wired and wireless High Speed Internet Access. You have your own entertainment center thanks to plug & play, our one-stop connectivity station. Leave your chargers at home: it juices up all your electronics—laptop, cell phone, MP3 player, and more—and connects them to a wall-mounted 42” flat-screen TV. A flip of the switch gives you high-def screening of your favorite flicks (or tomorrow’s presentation). In the sleek stylish bathroom, details are designed to stimulate your senses. Natural light illuminates the walk-in shower through a full-length frosted glass panel, which faces the guest room for a free flow of light with plenty of privacy. The eco-friendly dispenser doles out super-sudsy bath amenities specially created for Aloft Hotels by Bliss® Spa. Every Aloft room is attuned to you: whether you’re settling in or zipping out the door, you’ll find a host of helpful standard amenities to customize your experience. ... more   less
