Room was large. Bed was excellent. Staff friendly. Location is convenient for downtown venues. In town for a wedding. A room was set up for wedding guests to visit and have breakfast the morning after the wedding. Breakfast buffet was very good. Would stay here again in a minute. Go up on the roof for an excellent view of downtown... More

I checked in with a group of friends on a Saturday afternoon. Upon arrival, the front desk staff was not friendly whatsoever. The woman who checked us in just stared at me when I walked up, and when I said I was checking in. The room was wonderful, as well as the valet. Valet was very punctual and courteous. The... More

Hotel was downtown with many good places to eat and drink within walking distance and shuttle service for the places a little farther. It was in excellent condition and the staff was friendly and well trained. On the downside the doors to the rooms were tight and made considerable noise when they were shut. The free wi-fi did not work... More

We took our latest kid free stay-cation here after finding our usual Icon Hotel around the corner booked. Pleasant enough hotel with nicely decked out rooms, good views and all-round decor but lacking a little charm with its bar and restaurant areas which were on a par with big chains offerings and did nothing to tempt us to stay for...

Beautiful, spacious and quiet room in a very nice hotel. Stayed for a wedding in downtown Houston. Comfortable spaces to visit with friends in the lobby and several places nearby to eat. The breakfast was very good with many choices and a large room for our group to sit and enjoy. It is valet only parking which is the only... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The environment is awesome and we love staying here whenever we get the chance. My family enjoys all the comforts they offer and what can I say but yum, yum for the free breakfast, Cookie & Milk and evening reception.

We live in Houston, but my husband and I were looking for a nice hotel to spend some alone time (we have a toddler). This hotel made us feel like we were on a real vacation. The rooftop hot tub was very nice, but a little too hot for my taste. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will... More
