The hotel met our needs as we attended an event at the Toyota Center. I would chose them again if I'm in the area. Room was great, no need to pay more at the other nearby hotels. Front desk staff were good. Free use of business center, including printing. Free warm cookies and cold lemonade.

The best things about this stay: clean room, comfy beds, cold a/c, good shower, close to GRB, free parking, friendly staff from the housekeepers to the management. As a convention visitor, I was at the mercy of location, location, location. Therefore, this hotel exceeded my expectations! The front desk was very helpful with questions about restaurants (China Garden is an... More

From the moment I walked in, I felt I was at home. I was promptly greeted by Rene at the front desk...He was very, very nice and knowledgeable about IHG Rewards, their programs, their offerings and even asked if I had plans for diner, he wanted to offer some suggestions...Perfect for the front desk.. For being an IHG member, I... More

We stayed here for one night after spending the afternoon at the Space Centre. It is a very modern, clean and comfortable hotel. Only feedback would be the hot tub was far too hot and the pool was like a hot bath. The front desk staff were helpful printing out a map for directions to a big nearby mall. The... More

We came here for an Astros game with our family. We had three rooms; two double queens and one king suite. We were very pleased once we entered the property. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were pleased with our rooms BEFORE we checked in. They called cabs for us and made sure we were happy... More

We just stayed one night and really liked the hotel. We were in town for an Astros game and it was a 12 minute walk to Minute Maid Park from the hotel. We felt very safe. Parking was free, which is always nice. But I'm sure they factor that into the nightly rate because his was the most expensive HIE... More

If you are attending an event at the Convention Center, this is the hotel to stay. This hotel is a two minute walk from the Convention Center. Upon check-in, guest services was extremely friendly. We rented two adjoining rooms which were very clean and spacious. The breakfast was great, and the military discount even better. I would recommend this hotel... More

I recently stayed at this hotel on a business trip. This wasn't our first choice, because of location, but it worked out well. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly enough, and even the parking was quite convenient with a nice sized lot behind the hotel. The only downside to this hotel seems to be location, unless you are... More

To pay $700 for three nights at Holiday Inn Express does not really make me very smart...more like desperate, since there was a convention I was attending near-by. My feeling is that all the hotels on a walking distance from the Convention Center do the same thing - overprice their guests. Hotel was good, within its category, worm breakfast included... More

This Holiday Inn is very good at what it needs to be; A Close to the Convention Area, basic hotel with business traveler amenities. Its clean, run professionally and typical of Holiday Inn's Express offerings. Given the choice though, you would rather be at the Hilton. Especially in some of Houston's car wash rain, like this morning where the few... More
