Facilities and Capacity

Charming and pleasing to the eye, Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria combines modern luxury with useful features. This helps to create a seamless experience for couples on their special day. With a number of ballrooms for couples to avail of, there is ample choice when it comes to selecting that all-important ceremony or reception space. The Discovery Ballroom would be an ideal place to host the ceremony; its 8,000 square feet and high ceilings provide a roomy area where guests can gather in comfort to share the wonderful moment.

The Legends Ballroom is an 11,000-square-foot room that is perhaps the jewel in the venue's crown.
