The overall experience was top-notch. The ability to walk directly into the mall is one of the reasons we picked staying at this property. The room was outfitted with all the modern fixtures and finishes. The only improvement I would suggest is firmer pillows (personal preference). I would stay here again.

Pillows

Pros: ??? Not much
Cons: The pillows, the phone wake up call
Location: The Galleria was right there.
The pillows were TERRIBLE! I didnt get much sleep. I set the phone for a wakeup call but I didnt hear it. The next AM I was awake & the phone rang. It was so low, I never heard it ring thats why the first day I never heard it.

far from first class service.

Pros: The direct access to the Galleria
Cons: There is no night lighting going to the pool . Extremely dangerous condition.
Location: The hotel is attached to the Galleria so obviously go shopping
felt like I was overcharged for what are normally complimentary items. I had to buy coffee and water. I can't get used to buying a cup of coffee in a four star hotel.

Westin level quality not delivered

The experience started on a negative note as there were 4-5 immediate issues with the room that was assigned. Everything was addressed by the front desk within an hour of reporting the said issues. The Westin Oaks will be next on my list when visiting Houston. Westing Galleria was an average experience and was solely saved by the promptness of the front desk staff. Nothing else was motivation enough to make me rebook at their property.

this hotel did make us feel welcome

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, Poor breakfast
We enjoyed our stay in Houston lot. Whenever we travel, most of the time we stay at Best Western. This time we decided to go for a change. So there is a tendency to compare. And Best Western offers a lot for the money. Like free internet, refrigerator in the room, free continental breakfast. Now the Westin is a more upscale hotel. But all the things mentioned were missing. Also the rooms can easily be compared with Best Western. That did not diminish our travel experience. But when it comes to the hotel we must say, that maybe the Westin is not as upscale as we thought, or Best Western is more upscale that we thought.

Although the room was clean it did not have that "plush" feel you expect from this grade of Hotel.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, access to galleria
We felt that their may have been a "block" of rooms reserved for special deal rates and were not as plush as they could have been. The room was clean but again there was nothing great about it considering the Westin name.
