A huge shopping center is a five-minute walk away, and Downtown Houstin is a 15-minute drive
Sheraton Suites is located along West Loop freeway. It's a safe area near The Galleria shopping mall, which has tons of high-end stores and restaurants, as well as an ice-skating rink. Downtown Houston is about a 15-minute drive away, as are major sports arenas and theaters. The beaches of Galveston Island can be reached in a little more than an hour.
They say everything's bigger in Texas, and Houston definitely lives up to that. Characterized by steamy summer days and mild winter nights, the thriving metropolis sprawls over a flat landscape punctuated by tall, stately buildings and winding roadways. Major areas include East End, Montrose, Downtown, and the Kirby districts, but shopping, restaurants, and other attractions can be found off most major highways.
As the country's fourth biggest city, Houston is home to several major sports franchises, including the Astros, Rockets, and Texans, as well as the Johnson Space Center, where visitors can hear the infamous line, "Houston, we have a problem" from Apollo 13.
Sheraton Suites' reputation as a business-friendly chain lives up to its name in this professional, unpretentious hotel near the Houston Galleria. The 281-suite property features a sophisticated lobby with a grand painting of the Texas landscape. One- or two-bedroom suites are well-appointed with flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers equipped with Starbucks coffee. The rooms are classic and modest with cappuccino-colored walls and basic, contemporary hotel-style furniture. The beds have fluffy white bedding, and the bathrooms are nice and clean (although the wallpaper is a little old-fashioned). Amenities include a solid fitness center, a well-known steakhouse chain, and a lounge serving alcohol.
