Only two hours of quiet

I was in room 919 and it was right beside the elevator. There was noise with guests until about 2:30 am and then the noise started again at 4:30 am. These guests were not being quiet but it certainly didn't seem that they were disorderly. I finally came to the conclusion that the rooms need more sound proofing. It was so loud that it ruined my experience.

Great location/ Very Nice Hotel

Pros: The bathroom size, and mirrors available. The lighting in the bathroom was also fabulous.
Cons: The pool/area needs some improvement. I was a little disappointed with it. It was a lot smaller than I thought, and it had no stair access.
Location: It is directly across the street from the Galleria mall, very convenient to everything on Westheimer and Sage Rd.
This hotel was very nice, and the price was great for how nice it is. I loved the bathroom in my hotel room, the full length mirror was awesome. Not very many hotel rooms have a full length mirror, but this one did and it was great. The size of the bathroom was also great. The bed was comfortable and the room was nice. The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. The valet guys were excellent, always looking to help you. All around the experience at this hotel was top notch, and I would defiantly stay there again!!

Prime location for shopping in Houston.

Pros: location
Cons: No free Internet
Major plus for this hotel is its prime location in the Hoston area. Other aspects are fairly expected from a four star hotel, but compared to other J W hotels, it is lacking in luxury, amenities, and "presence" expected from a five-star hotel...

Excellent Hotel, Excellent Stay

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
We stayed here one night and were very impressed with the friendly and courteous staff. Our room was exceptionally clean, quiet, and a very comfortable bed. We also had an excellent view of the Galleria area from the 11th floor. I would stay here again, anytime.

No Free Wifi

For a four star hotel, it's not worth it! If your a workout buff and you go to a hotel to mostly workout, then this hotel is for you. If you would prefer free wifi over ten's of thousands of dollars in workout equipment, this is not your place. That's mind boggling to me that a hotel would have that much workout equipment and yet doesn't have free wifi!!! It cost $12.95 for 24 use of a wifi signal. There isn't many worker either and the pool and hot tub area could have used some attention. The room is fairly average, nothing special. And as always, parking is outrageous...$29 for valet parking. The hotel is located in a ritzy area and is directly across from the Galleria, but you can't just walk directly across the street to it, you have to walk a ways to the intersection and wait for your walk signal. 24 hour Walgreens next door and a Starbucks in the lobby, but it's only open until Noon.

Comfortable

Lots of shopping and restaurants in the area. Hotel has been renovated. Nice but nothing luxurious. Service was fine. Even upgraded to a mini-suite because they were all out of king size beds as we booked. Self-parking is $15 and valet is $25. No problems.

Wish it was always in an available package

My wife would like to stay at the JW Marriott Houston every time we're in Houston (usually twice a year) if we could. X (I believe) at the front desk provided excellent customer service. Our room and furnishings were nice, and the housekeeping staff did a great job (we did leave a tip for them). One odd thing about the sink area, however, is that there is no place to hang towels or washcloths (no towel rack or bar). Not sure what's up with that. We especially enjoyed the bar/lounge area on the lobby level, which includes flat panel TVs in separate alcove seating areas. This was nice for us to sit with family, relax, and have evening conversation, a drink, and an evening snack. Of course, the immediate proximity to the Galleria is a plus.

Relaxing in Comfort

I did not have any problems with this hotel stay. From beginning to end it was enjoyable and relaxing. The valet service was very helpful always ready with directions to nearby attractions and even brought my car around so I could get forgotten items. The workout area was wonderful with every machine you could need along with free weight. Afterward the area was always stocked with ice cold water bottles and even fresh fruit. You don't have to ask for anything they are always there to help. The pool was a little small if you are trying to exercise or do laps, but great for smaller kids to enjoy. The beds are always my favorite part with more pillows and blankets than you could need, ,but make you want to stay in bed forever. The hotel was across from the galleria and had plenty of local restuarants to chose from. My son and I nejoyed the comfortable relaxing atmosphere that Texas is known for.
