Hotel Sorella CityCentre Review

I was provided with a complementary stay at the Hotel Sorella during the GoHouston! Travel Campaign hosted by New Creative Writing and Social Media Marketing, home to Money Saving Parent.com. All opinions are my own.

My husband was born and raised in a suburb of Houston, and I lived there for a few years, which is where I met him. What I remember of what is now CityCentre is that there was nothing there! So, when we had a chance to take a mini vacation over the 4th of July holiday weekend to Houston and experience this “new to us” area we were very excited. We had accommodations at the luxurious Hotel Sorella CityCentre, which is conveniently located within walking distance to many shops, dining, and Studio Movie Grill. Hotel Sorella CityCentre also features dining options within at The Bistro and a complimentary continental breakfast with some amazing pastries and fruit.

Hotel Sorella CityCentre also features many views of the beautiful CityCentre plaza and their living waters, which is amazing to view at night when the fires are lit. Because our visit was over the 4th of July weekend, we also got to experience the CityCentre fireworks – right from our room! Our room had a wonderful view of the plaza where the fireworks display and entertainment was located. This was an extra bonus for us because we had one child down for the count before the fireworks began! Plus, we got to stay nice and comfortable in the air conditioned room. Even if it wasn’t a holiday, I would still request a view of the plaza if available because it really is beautiful especially at night.

Courtyard View

In addition to the beautiful view, our room was beautiful as well. We had two double beds as well as a swivel chair and large ottoman. We found it very easy to get comfortable. There was a large closet that easily fit all of our bags so we could enjoy the space and a gorgeous bathroom with sliding door. The bathtub/shower had a large shower head, which I absolutely love, and was very spacious. There is something great about a good shower after being in the car for a few hours, and an inviting shower is just what I needed. I was also very impressed to see that they provide eco-friendly toiletries. Between the shower, toiletries, fluffy towels, and robe (provided in the closet), I felt completely relaxed. Add the flat-screen TV with cable, iPod clock radio, Wi-fi access and provided magazines for entertainment, and we were all set to wind down for the night after the fireworks!

There are snacks as well as drinks available in the room and mini fridge for an additional cost, which is convenient if you prefer not to leave your room. You can order entire meals to be brought to your rooms as well until 10pm. I was extremely impressed with their room service menu as well as the other details they provide about their services. They also provided helpful information about other services in the area.

Hotel Sorella CityCentre also has a swimming pool with shaded areas, terraces overlooking the plaza, and a fitness facility for their guests. The fitness facility also has a joint spa area if guests would like to schedule a massage or other spa service for additional pampering. It is recommended to book your service 24 hours in advance.

The fitness facility is located on the 3rd floor and is accessed by your room key, so you can access it at any time. It has a view of the CityCentre plaza, so guests can enjoy the scenery while you are working out. Guests can also watch the televisions provided in front of the cardio machines. In addition to treadmills, ellipticals, and a stationary bike there are also free weights. There is a bathroom in the fitness facility so you don’t have to go find one if needed! A water machine and apples are provided. If you decide you need a little more exercise during your stay at Hotel Sorella you can purchase day passes to Life Time Athletic at the front desk.

Fitness Facility

Some other features we really enjoyed at Hotel Sorella CityCentre were: the family friendly staff, the elegant decor, easy access from the parking garage (though valet parking is available as well), computers connected to the internet with a printer, the large cow seats on the first level, and the location. We really enjoyed CityCentre. I never would have guessed what I remember as nothing developed into this classy area full of life and entertainment! We enjoyed the ambience, location, and people! Everyone was so friendly and social. Plus many of the shops offered organic and eco-friendly products, which is a definite bonus for us. Hotel Sorella CityCentre is right there in the middle of it all.

  8. What a nice trip! That looks like a fancy hotel – my accomodations are usually Motel 6 (LOL) and the fireworks looked great! Glad you had a good time. I’ve only been through Houston twice, and was just to change planes, so I never got to see the city.
