As I walked through the glass revolving doors of the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria, the main lobby floor was brimming with natural light and ambiance. I could already sense that this hotel was different than most hotels for business travelers – more modern, more urban. Looking towards the check-in, my eyes stop to admire a large, three-dimensional metal sculpture inspired by the shape of geodes. I recall a similar metal sculpture placed at the valet, beautifully welcoming me to the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria. Later I learn that these sculptures and artwork in the hotel follow a geological theme while paying tribute to the state’s oil industry and its workers.
An expansive room with high ceilings stands to the left of the lobby check-in, separated by sheer panels, perfect for some sort of division, yet not completely blocked to enforce disconnection. The contemporary, open area is perfect for social or business gatherings and endless conversations. The lobby floor has clusters of plush seating that provide for discreet conversations within a shared open space. There is a center Urban Star Bar where you can enjoy a glass of fine wine or linger over crafted cocktails while catching a game on the flatscreen TVs overhead. Or if you prefer a more quiet setting, you can head to the sunlit Urban Star restaurant which serves Starbucks coffee, fresh, locally sourced food all day.

Checking in was swift and easy (always a bonus especially since I checked in later in the evening). Heading towards the elevators, I couldn’t help but appreciate the grand walnut staircase with exposed steel and soaring wooden diagonal posts through the second floor. Curiosity won over as I walked up to the second floor to see what was there. The second floor houses more than 11,000 square feet of functional space for meetings, conferences, and even weddings. I fell in love with the floor’s main wall which displays numerous artwork by local Houston artists. In addition to this art wall, the halls of the second floor also display incredible one-of-a-kind pieces.

I entered my Deluxe suite on the 13th floor (the Regency Club Lounge level) and was pleasantly surprised by the modern aesthetic and square footage of the suite. I am all about bright spaces and I love the floor to ceiling windows which provide lots of natural light and views of The Galleria district. The room has two accent chairs and a marble table perfect for enjoying room service or working on your laptop. The bedroom was spacious with its king size Hyatt Grand Bed which literally provided me with 8+ hours of continuous sleep every single night. The large master bathroom features a walk-in rain shower, ample counter space and premium bath products. The Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria features 325 rooms, including 20 suites, as well as the Regency Club Lounge located on the 13th floor. To read more about their rooms, please click here.

I was fortunate enough to have access to the Regency Club Lounge where breakfast and light hors d’ouevres are served throughout the day. The Regency Club Lounge is spacious and cozy, but also has the same modern feel as the rest of the hotel. I enjoyed fresh pastries, oatmeal, parfaits, and a variety of cereals for breakfast and would often pop in throughout the day for my fix of lattes, homemade cookies, fruits and beverages. While the Club Lounge seems unnecessary to some, I actually prefer this option if it is available as it saves me from going to a local market to stock up on water and snacks during a short stay. But if the Club Lounge isn’t for you, the Hyatt Regency also has the Market located on the first floor which is open all day for those who prefer to grab and go.

Daily newspapers are available as well as Starbucks coffee and teas
Lite bites such as fruit, assorted nuts, cookies, and cheeses are available throughout the day
Other than all the modern interior décor and the chic vibe of this hotel, one of the best reasons to stay at the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria is for its prime location. It is literally across the street from The Galleria, Texas’ largest shopping mall. I made three visits to The Galleria in my three day stay at this hotel (yes, it’s that close). The hotel is also located nearby many local eateries and exceptional dining options that are within walking distance or a short Uber ride away. Other than my meals at the Urban Star restaurant and the Regency Club Lounge, I was able to walk to Sage 400, a Japanese sushi bar, across the street from the hotel and also experienced finer dining at Steak 48 (a must try if in Houston).
Located right across the street from The Galleria and nearby shopping plazas
I didn’t have the opportunity to use the outdoor swimming pool or the StayFit gym which has views of the pool and spacious sundeck, but I took a stroll to check it out and it is a wonderful location for lounging and relaxing or for a fun social event.

I thoroughly enjoyed my long weekend stay at the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria. In addition to the helpful staff, modern conveniences, and amenities that every Hyatt Regency offers, the Houston Galleria property brings the best elements of the urban lifestyle together with the beauty of art, food, community, and comfort.

What a beautiful hotel!! Amazing. I’m loving all your outfits.
Great review! Happy Weekend.
Thanks Raysa, it truly is a beautiful hotel! Have a wonderful weekend too.
I love this kind of modern and sophisticated interior. you look gorgeous too!
Most of the hotels I looked at before picking the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria did not have this contemporary and urban vibe so I am incredibly happy there is a hotel like this in Houston and central to most everything you need.
What a wonderful review, almost felt like I was there to experience it with you! This hotel looks so contemporary and chic, with the best amenities. Love your sweater and those heels are all to die for, you look gorg as always babe.

Awww thanks Kusum, I am glad I was able to provide a thorough review. It definitely is a great hotel and a must stay if you are ever in Houston!
Wow this place is the dream and on my bucket list. Thanks for sharing beautiful
You would love it here Deddeh!
I am just going to start by saying I just love your style. You always look so chic & amazing. The fur vest with the star shoes is so cool but looks like you put it together effortlessly ! And these pics of the Hyatt Houston are beautiful. They look like they should be in a magazine ! I always look forward to your blog.
Thank you Gracie, you are too kind. I am glad that I was able to share the Hyatt Regency Houston with everyone and show an inside glimpse of the hotel that isn’t all on the website. I hope you have an amazing weekend!
When I saw your Instagram post this morning mentioning new blog post about your last weekend’s visit, I immediately wanted to visit this post. Thank you so much for this beautifully written post about my city – Houston. I am sure you wouldn’t be surprised if I told you I pretty much visited The Galleria Mall weekly :). You found a perfect hotel to stay and those pictures are stunning. I also love all your outfits you shared here, you always have the greatest style! Hope you will plan to visit Houston soon again, we will definitely need to meet up next time as my house is like 15 minutes away from Galleria.
Hi Jo! I am so sad that we didn’t get to meet up while I was in Houston, it is such an amazing city and I love the Galleria area. I will definitely be back since my sister lives there and we will have to meet up!
The Hyatt is an amazing place to stay always! I also love their modern interior decor for how chic and classic is looks. I love seeing your cute bag through the pics too! What was the sushi bar like?
Such a pretty place. Love this place so much ♥️
Looks like you had such an amazing time! I will definitely be looking into this hotel if I ever do visit Houston 🙂 Have a great weekend hun!
It definitely looks more modern and urban than most hotels that I’ve seen without losing professionalism. The floor to ceiling windows, delicious breakfast, and ahhhh yes the amazing room may have something to do with that! It looks so lovely and your stay sounds like so much fun!!
Thank you Danielle. I was looking for a more modern hotel to stay in that was close by to the Galleria and this one really stood out. Definitely check them out if you are ever in Houston!
That loooks like a dream of a hotel to stay at
Hi Camille. It really was a fantastic stay. Hope you are having a great weekend!
This is such a beautiful hotel! Looks so luxurious and stunning! Seems like you had so much fun there! All those yummy dishes! Amazing interiors! Details!
Also love all of your outfits!
Hi Katya! I did have a lot of fun there and it was so convenient to be there next to great restaurants and the biggest mall!
This looks like a great hotel! I love staying at the Hyatt Regency hotel whenever I can especially in NYC. I especially love access to the club level! Thanks for sharing your experience 🙂
I haven’t been to the one in NYC, but I will definitely have to check it out when I am in NY next. Club level is amazing because you never have to worry about food!
This was so wonderfully written again! You always take notice of all the minute details that I would have overlooked. I need to check this out when/if I ever visit Houston!! Also love that it’s walking distance to the largest mall in Texas! Always a plus for us bloggers, lol.
Awww, thanks so much Jen! Yes, the location right across the street from the Galleria is a major bonus!
Wow! This hotel looks amazing. I’m loving their interior, everything feels so classy.
I’d love to give this hotel a visit if I’m ever in the city, it looks so amazing!
Thanks so much for the recommendation babe, hope you enjoyed your stay and had an amazing time !
Thanks Lisa, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would stay there again. There is definitely a more younger vibe in the hotel and the lobby was always bustling but not too overcrowded and loud.
What a nice hotel! Such a chique and classy vibe. Looks like you’ve had a wonderful time there <3
Hi Charissa! Yes, I had a great weekend and enjoyed my stay.
Such a beautiful hotel! I haven’t had the chance to stay at the Hyatt but after seeing these photos they are first on my list! Loved all of your outfits on your stay too <3
Thank you Aiko! This was my first stay at a Hyatt Regency and I was highly impressed. I definitely will be staying with them more often now!
I love your indepth hotel reviews, Christine! I seriously need to bookmark them for the future so I know where to stay when I plan a trip! Now, if I find myself in Houston, I know just where to stay 😉
Thank you Jo for your kind words. I love traveling and would love to share more hotel reviews!
Such a great post, chicky! Your clothing and posts are perfection (as usual). xx- Ally
Thank you Ally! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
I loved how you described everything from entering to leaving. It definitely looked like a lovely stay and so glad to hear you enjoyed! Btw, love all your outfits in this post!
Much love from NYC,
Thanks Alexandra, I am glad you enjoyed my review. It was such a fantastic stay and thanks for the outfit complements too!
Your gorgeous photos make this hotel look so luxe. And I want all the shoes that you are wearing! Would love to stay here on my next Houston visit.
This is such an elegant, considered hotel. The decor is beautiful, but still corporate. I can’t believe there is a Starbucks inside! They must be everywhere over there! Haha. I think some friends of mine live in Houston, so I may have to keep this one in mind if we ever get to go visit them.
Yes, this is still a hotel for business travelers, yet the decor and even the guests that are there are also there for leisure especially since the hotel is located by popular tourist attractions. Definitely look into it if you are ever in Houston.
Wow, I love the interior!!!
Isn’t it so modern and chic?
Judging by the pictures you had a wonderful stay at this beautiful hotel! Definitely on my list when (not if) I visit Houston. And I loved the sculpture that paid hommage to the steel workers. It’s so important to remember your roots and what made you who you are. Thanks for a great post sweetie! 🙂
Yes I did Thomas. You are too cute and I agree, I love the artwork and the blend of modern yet the history of Texas.
Those rooms are HUGE! What a gorgeous hotel! Looks like a great visit 🙂
Thank you Michelle, the rooms are quite spacious and it is a perfect hotel for business, leisure, and family travelers.
Looks like you had such a lovely stay! Glad you enjoyed Houston.
Thank you Ravayna, I definitely did have a lovely time. Hope you are having a great weekend.
What other to say than perfect!
Thank you Marija, you are absolutely right, my stay was perfect!
What a great review! Your stay looked impeccable! 🙂
This place looks very nice! Your pictures are amazing! You got serious photography skills 🙂
You seriously always have an aura of chicness to you kind of like Chriselle Lim does! The photos from Hyatt also look amazing and so modern! I hope you enjoyed your stay.
OMG best compliment every Atsuna! xoxo!
Looks like you had an amazing time! The hotel looks beautiful. I will definitely stay there if I visit Houston!

I’ve been to the Houston Galleria multiple times and I’ve always wondered how the Hyatt looked inside. Looks well worth a stay. Thanks for sharing these pics with us 🙂
It’s right across the street and you should go just even to grab some drinks!
It looks like you had a wonderful time. I love the modern decor of the Hotel and the facilities look excellent. It seems like it is situated in a perfect location too (shopping wise). I will definitely consider the Hyatt when I am visiting Houston next.
This hotel is so luxurious! WOW! The interiors and the extra little features are so good! Love all your pictures and the detailed review.. Hopefully one day I can visit for myself!

This hotel looks beautiful! Your outfits are all so perfect! I am loving the off the shoulder lace up sweater in the first couple – you pull it off so well!
While my travelling I always look for a special accommodation regarding the whole concept of hotel, special service, story of hotel or design. And the last thing DESIGN is for me the Nr.1 in decision process. 🙂 This is what makes atmosphere the most. Kisses :-*
This hotel looks amazing! Im sure you really enjoyed your stay there.
Wow this place looks so magical I must stay here next time I visit! Thanks for sharing Christine 🙂
