Overnight Stay in Houston

Pros: Newer hotel with clean facilities and comfortable bed
Cons: Most hotels in this price range offer complimentary breakfast, this one did not. Breakfast was very pricey, no refridgerator or microwave in room
Location: Within a mile of a nice shopping district and about 3 miles from the Houston Medical Center area.
Comfortable room, parking was limited, staff was nice

Great Hotel!

Pros: Central location
Cons: Don't use Enterprise Car Rental as place to identify where to turn!! The car dealership would make it much easier!
Location: The Hotel is close to good restaurants, the Chocolate Bar, and a very nice shopping area
This Hotel is a little hard to find, but worth looking! We enjoyed our stay as the staff was very friendly, it was quiet, centrally located and nice and clean. Would stay again if in Houston.

Relaxing Stay

Pros: The staff and the location. It's near Rice Village area, Galleria area and great restaurants
Cons: I would have enjoyed using the pool but didnt get a chance to because it was too cloudy
The front desk people were so nice. The room was clean and comfortable. The room had Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner in case you left yours, I thought that was nice compared to no name products. They have an in grill, very pricey and the grill was down this night, so we had to eat elsewhere. They did have an in door pool and jacuzzi, however the pool smelled of high concentration of chlorine and was cloudy. I did not use the pool. Overall I would stay here again, I got it at a discounted rate so I felt I got a good deal!!

Growing pains

I've stayed at this hotel before and had a good time. I returned last weekend to find the place renovated--looking quite spiffy, I must admit. The management doesn't seem to have kept pace with the renovation, though. First, although I thought I had booked a room with two double beds online, we got a room with a single bed, and were told that since I had reserved the room through a third party (i.e. Travel Website), that I wasn't entitled to a room with two beds. Okay... The room itself was perfectly fine. We tried breakfast in the new bistro downstairs the next morning and that was not fine--in fact it was disastrous. The staff seemed completely at sea and got almost every order wrong (my companion got white toast and sausage instead of wheat toast and bacon), even though there were at most half a dozen guests in the dining area. Come on! Even though I like the place I'm not sure I'd return soon unless they get their act together.
