It explains the way to handle stubborn kids or those who are less enthusiastic including those who fear using the potty. In addition it ...

... today (Monday, July 7). Izzy, Matt and Paula laugh a lot at the I Love Lucy DVD reruns and we’re having a great time. I’ll share the military precision procedure of our unloading and loading the minivan daily another time. One of the reloading
checklists had to be modified this morning when we pulled over due to a vibration commotion from the roof. I had failed to close the Thule roof storage “bubble” and we were fortunate ...

... for other parts of the world, it also made us realize how much we love and value our home in Houston. We're really excited to be back in Houston (less excited to go back to work on Monday) and we're already thinking about next year's international trip. Not sure exactly where we'll go or what we'll do, but we promise to go somewhere new to experience new things and enjoy more quality time ...

... cowboys). Didn't mean much to us until we got there!!
Once seated, our waiter for the evening came over and explained how the meal was served. Beside each of our glasses was a paper disk - green on one side, red on the other.
We were to help ourselves to the soup, salad and hot food and when we were ready to try the various meats, we were to turn our disk, which was facing red side up, over to the green side. This was ...

... consists of a Turkish appetizer trio, a full cart of salads and other appies made to your selection, warm buns, main course (fish and lemon potatoes for me), cheese and fruit plate, lemon sugar crepes. And more and more wine. Good thing I am wearing stretchy pants. Then I curl up in my full foldout bed with a thick comforter. Bottled water awaits when I open my eyes. And you eat the two course breakfast whenever you are awake enough. I'm now about to start round two ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Westin Galleria Houston Hotel

    Very pleased with Westin

    from

    Actually, I would rate the hotel somewhere between "above average" (4 star) and "excellent" (5 star). I'm basically writing this review because I'm dismayed by some previous reviews.

    Nothing Special

    from

    I just got back from a stay at the Westin Galleria Houston. The hotel is obviously old and the room was nothing special. Check-in was quick and my room was in ok shape, a few stains on the carpet, a freezing a/c, and a well used bathroom. This room could have existed in a Holiday Inn but in a Westin and at $200+ I expected better conditions.

    The front desk a staff was efficient at check in but was unhelpful when we asked for a restaurant recommendation.

    On the bright side, the 'heavenly bed' helped with my good-nights sleep.

    Overall, it was not worth the money and is in need of renovation.

    Satisfactory

    from

    My stay was brief, only one night, but satisfactory. Upon arrival my reservation could not be found (by name or reservation number); however, the employee gave me the same rate and was very concerned about finding me a room away from the noise and traffic of the elevator.

    The room is not Westin quality

    from

    Service upon arrival was excellent: the valet was efficient and the bellhops were quick to help. The lobby was clean and well appointed. So far so good.

    Two weeks of horrible service

    from

    I just came back from two weeks spent at the Westin Galleria in Houston. Believe me when I tell you if you are looking for a good business hotel - THIS ISN'T IT. From the lack of customer service, to the lack of decent food, this hotel doesn't even come close to living up to the Westin name.

    The rooms are filthy...

    from

    We stayed at the Westin Galleria Nov. 20th to 25th with the idea that we would be in the heart of one of Houstons premier shopping malls. Because we know this area well, and we thought the Westin had a good reputation (and it claimed to have completed a $28 Million renovation last year) we booked online. What HUGE disappointment! The room we had (1754) was absolutly FILTHY. The carpets were stained, the windows inside had thousands of hand prints on them so they hadn't been cleaned in ages, the bathroom tiles had mildew and the vent had half an inch of lint and dust on it. The maid informed us that they only vacuumed every other day and sheets were changed only if requested. Don't waste your money here!!

    Great for shopping

    from

    This hotel is located within the Galleria Shopping Mall. So, if you plan on shopping, this is the best place to stay. The hotel is quite modern, but servces are not that good. Anyway, I highly recommend it and will stay again.

    Wonderful, Convenient...

    from

    My husband and I stay here several nights a month just to relax. This hotel is conveniently located within the Galleria Mall. You are steps away from great shopping and restaurants, such as The Cheescake Factory, also located within the Galleria. The heavenly beds and showers make every stay relaxing. This hotel provides impeccable housekeeping, excellent room service, and upscale amenities.

    Needs Work

    from

    Poor check in personel knowledge. Slow and confused with check in procedures.

    No fresh air ventalation in rooms. Bathroom vents dirty and clogged. No opening windows or vents.

    No food service on holidays, i.e. Easter. Limited food room service after 10:00 p.m.

    Charges for DSL internet service $9.95 (Noon-Noon). Should be free like Doubletree, Shariton hotels have. Need to upgrade to Wi-Fi wireless for all floors.

    Room service asks for cash at delivery.

    Loved the Westin Galleria

    from

    We stayed at the Westin Galleria two weeks ago and it was wonderful. The rooms were clean and very big and the staff were extrememly friendly. The hotel has been renovated in the past few months and had a very modern decor. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
