BOOK THIS HOTEL FOR YOUR WEDDING!! Not only is the Veranda absolutely gorgeous, but the staff is amazing to work with. From the moment we visited the venue for an initial look to the morning after our wedding, they treated us like we were the most important people in the world. I felt so comfortable and worry-free during the entire process. They were responsive and worked with all of our requests. I could not have been happier with how everything turned out. Oh and the food!! The chef was wonderful to work with and all of our guests raved about the authentic taco bar we had! I could not recommend this venue more.Sent on 08/29/2018

Beautiful hotel and service!
We had our room block at The Sam Houston hotel, and couldn't have been happier with the services. That provided us with a beautiful suite, accommodated a luncheon the next day for our guests in the Pearl Restaurant, and made the process of room blocking very easy for us. Definitely recommend!Sent on 11/17/2018
The Sam Houston Hotel's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words Brandi! We hope you and your family and friends continue to celebrate life's future events in with us!

Outstanding service and location, not to mention visually stunning. So why would you want to look elsewhere?Sent on 09/27/2016
We had the pleasure of working with Christopher (event manager) and his kindness and eye for details are impeccable. Christopher is just wonderful to work with and each meeting we left excited and couldn't wait until we could return back. You will have a such a great time coordinating things with him!
In addition to Christopher other staff such as Chef Ed were also a pleasure to work with, he was so amazing and from our first meeting it was nothing but laughs and good food and on our wedding day it was exactly the same, HOT plates and perfectly cooked food. Another staff member to mention to you all is Janice. Should you make the correct decision and book your event here Janice is responsible for bar tending services. She made our specialty cocktail experience so much fun! The event staff as well as the hotel staff will make sure your experience as well as each guests experience is nothing but exceptional. In the end our guest as well as ourselves were treated to a wonderful event thanks to each of these wonderful people!
This venue is such perfection, I couldn't even go into detail enough. Every wedding here is flawless and full of a knowledgeable staff with the Bride & Groom's wishes on their minds. What more could you ask for?!
