This Holiday Inn Express is laid out like most HI's, and it is convenient to the Convention Center and Toyota Center. However, the hallway decor, upgraded carpeting, and decorated rooms are a great upgrade from most...well appointed and they add to a much nicer atmosphere for this type of hotel. Breakfasts are good and rotate options daily. Staff is very... More

One of the main reasons why I continue selecting this Holiday Inn location is because it's removed from any major roadways. It's location is the perfect setup for a quiet nights sleep since there is no "interstate" highway noise to deal with. The staff is very friendly as well at this location. The room decor could use some updating, but... More

We stayed for a couple nights recently and found this place to be a little bit dingy. Simply: - The rooms were just a little rough around the edges. - The TVs were outdated and emitted a high pitched whining noise. - We had a malfunctioning deadbolt on our door. - There were signs in the parking lot expressly warning...

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

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.
