The aptly named Legends Ballroom, Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston’s largest meeting space, has played host to countless meetings, galas and fundraising events. Legends is also highly sought after as a prime location for lavish weddings and premier trade shows given its proximity to the Galleria mall and Uptown businesses. A state-of-the-art renovation has elevated the 11,000-square-foot venue with 18-foot ceiling further enhancing its functionality and elegance with best-in-class audio/visual products, as well as custom carpeting, lighting and wall coverings. Divisible into seven flexible spaces with seating from 20 to 1,000, Legends offers a truly grand sense of arrival with its soaring, glass-walled pre-function area featuring a dramatic, free-floating staircase. Accessibility to this grand ballroom is set apart as there is a separate valet entrance from the main hotel offering event exclusivity.
Founders is a collection of four, newly minted spaces conveniently situated with direct access to the hotel’s parking garage. Founders ballroom encompasses an 1,800-square-foot pre-function area, a nearly 4,800-square-foot ballroom and is divisible into four, flexible meeting rooms with space configurations that range from approximately 1,200 to 3,600 square feet. Fresh lighting and carpeting add value to this transformable meeting space.
Discovery ballroom boasts 8,000 square feet of open exhibit space with a 22-foot ceiling height. Completely refurbished in fall 2013, Discovery is divisible into two sections and can comfortably seat up to 500 guests for a banquet. This highly functional ballroom offers ease in access for exhibit set-up with a convenient yet discreet drive-up load door. Rigging points strategically positioned on the ceiling, are ideal for a/v and lighting usage.
The newly renovated Champions Conference Center is perched high above Legends ballroom and is also afforded the brilliance of natural light from the glass-walled pre-function area. Its expansive balcony mezzanine is valuable event real estate that can accommodate 150 people seated and 200 people reception-style. Champions is also comprised of seven flexible meeting rooms offering two spaces with over 1,500 square feet each plus four additional venues ranging from more than 600 to 1,800 square feet, one of which is an executive boardroom with seating for fourteen. The lofty and light-filled mezzanine offers a distinctive and spacious setting of approximately 5,000 square feet for dining, cocktails or ceremonies.
Adjacent to Founders, Chairmans is the Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston’s signature boardroom. Newly reimagined to exacting standards, Chairmans offers the latest technologies and an equally sophisticated design scheme sure to appeal to the most discerning executive.
