Rebranded from Inn At the Ballpark to a Westin. Same ownership by Landry's. Remodeled to eliminate the obvious baseball themes. Renovations are nice using a grey/ brown color palette with a contemporary flair. Basic room rates do not include free Wi-Fi, a travesty for Westin since their lower end properties like ALoft have free Wi-Fi. No safe in room. We... More

This is an awesome hotel in a great location in downtown Houston. It is right in the middle of all the professional sports venues and is a few steps away from the convention center. Even though it is located near a lot of attractions it is still a very relaxing retreat that my wife and I loved and have already... More

My wife and I along with another couple stayed here incident to the JAy-Z and Beyonce concert. We booked two of the upgraded rooms which overlooked Minute Maid Park which happened to be the concert venue. The rooms were spacious and ultra clean. The property was previously the Inn at the Ballpark and recently switched to a Westin property. Not... More

Great hotel in the downtown area of Houston - 1min from the Ballpark and close to Toyota Centre. The standard is what you would expect from a Westin, excellence. I think its a relatively new hotel, so the quality and standard was excellent. The only disappointment is $9,95 per day per device if you want wifi in your room -... More

We love the Westin and are SPG members. We visit Houston quite a bit and usually stay at the Galleria but decided to try this one out because we were going to a soccer game. It's great for adults, if you are here specifically for the baseball or soccer games. Other than that I would not recommend for families with... More

I just spent 5 days at this Westin to attend a national volleyball tournament at the convention center. This is an excellent option for the convention center. The hotel has a very upscale feel in the lobby with very attentive staff. I was disappointed I did not receive an SPG Gold Upgrade but the standard room was your typical Westin.... More

This is by far one of the better hotels in the Houston area. Spacious rooms including the bathroom,nicely equipped gym, professional attentive staff. They have personal touches, making your stay excellent.Shuttle services to downtown destinations, late weekend checkout. Definitely my new hotel for a weekend staycation.

We chose to stay here to attend an Astros game and it was the perfect location. The hotel is kitty corner from the ballpark- you couldn't get any closer. The downside was that we came in on a game day and the street was closed off so we had to figure out how to come in the back way. So... More

This hotel is very nice. It is not extra elegant or luxurious, but the rooms are large and nicely decorated. The beds are great and the service was excellent. The only drawback is its downtown location. If you need to be downtown, fine. If you want a nice neighborhood experience, this is not for you.

Had a little difficulty getting checked in because our reservations were made through another party and we required one king room and one with two doubles as our daughter, son in law and two,grandkids were not expected to share a king bed. Apparently no doubles were available on our arrival but fortunately a gentleman checking in at the same time... More
