Travel, Restaurants & Things to Do
Traveling to Houston is easy, with two major airports in the city:
George Bush Intercontinental (IAH): https://www.airport-houston.com/
Houston Hobby (HOU): https://www.houston-hobby-airport.com/
Once you arrive, you’ll find renting a car, or using ride share services like Uber/Lyft will be easiest. Note: the hotel does charge a daily fee for overnight parking in the garage.
There are many nearby dining options for guests a the Royal Sonesta. Simply use the interactive map to the right to explore nearby options.
For more information about the hotel, amenities, or things to do in Houston, please visit the hotel website here: https://www.sonesta.com/royal-sonesta/tx/houston/royal-sonesta-houston-galleria
