Rated 3 out of 5 by RogerW Disapointed
I stayed many nights (100+) at this location in 2012, at that time the service was top notch and I would highly recommend the hotel. Last weekend did not live up to my previous experience and expectations.
There is a $16 charge for parking (previously parking was iincluded in my corporate rate) but no metion of this during the reservation process.
Valet parking is taking up the first 3 levels; however, over 90% of these spaces were available. If valet is not being used, then they should have fewer reserved spaces. The 5th floor parking is reserved for employees; so there is only 1 floor available for guest parking.
Unable to access elevator from 5th floor parking garage door; card key does not work.

I love it! I travel for work every week, and the aloft is my favorite place to stay when I am away from home. It makes something mundane feel more special, and the location/views/staff are great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mur578 Noisy rooms and lack of hot water
This hotel has the thru wall AC units. Unfortunately some of the rooms the AC units are so badly maintained, it sounds like a plane is landing in the room.
Hot water was also a major concern. Plenty of hot water in the evening, but complete lack of hot water during the morning. Engineer 'claimed' it was fixed, but after my second cold shower, I had to conclude the engineering either didn't come or didn't do a thing. I had to switch rooms twice during my three night stay.
I've stayed in plenty of Aloft hotels, But I would not recommend this hotel to any work colleagues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sam3 This hotel was moderate.
Bar food selection was poor. I arrived at 8:30PM and was unable to order from the menu. Either the bartender just did not want to place the order or felt it was a pain to fill the order. I had almonds for dinner.

Had a great stay at Aloft Houston by the galleria. The staff was very responsive to any requests I had and the hotel has a great modern urban vibe in a great location!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3M21 One thorn in my sidae
I have nothing but good things to say about my stay here, aside from one thing. I find it ridiculous and irritating that I am charged $16.00 per night, to park at a hotel I have paid over $100.00 to stay at. I am sure this is common practice in Houston, but that doesn't help. Fold the parking price into the price of the room. I was not advised of this charge prior to booking the room. Left a bad taste in my mouth. I doubt I will ever stay there again based on that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TEXASPLATINUMGUEST1 Great Stay!
Great stay, Megan at the front desk started my stay off with a HUGE smile and recognition of my status as a Lifetime SPG Platinum. She quickly got me in my room, it was an awesome stay.
I would recommend that you go back to the old soap in the bathroom. The litte nasty "motel" square hard soap was terrible to use. I would also like to see pay for view movies in the room as well. Thank you
