    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.

    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!
