When my husband and I walked in the Sam Houston Hotel, we knew that we wanted our wedding at this venue. Starting with the reception area, very chic and then the Veranda, kinda indoor/outdoor concept, totally different than other venues. We met with Natalie Monk, who is very professional. She was very helpful with all our questions and responded promptly to all our emails. Even the day of the wedding she was taking care of all the details, and that made me feel stress free. The service was fabulous, they even assigned somebody to our service for every need during the wedding (thank you!). My guests were amazed by the food (delicious), the venue and enjoyed the cocktail hour at the reception (great time to great the guest and relax after the ceremony). I would definitely recommend the venue, they exceeded my expectations.Sent on 09/05/2013

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
