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

The Westin Houston Downtown is great. It brings the level of service and attention to detail that you'd expect from the brand. I stayed on business and the staff was fantastic and attentive. This hotel also has a decent fitness center with new equipment. After a workout or to unwind after the day, stop by the bar to see Sofia... More

We did kinda a double whammy by staying at these relatively new Westin in downtown. Well its a new "Westin" but not a new hotel but it still less than 10 years old. I wanted to stay at a hotel within walking distance of Minute Maid Park to watch an Astros game and the wife had a seminar at this... More

Loved this hotel - exceeded my expectations. We were on the 8th floor. Very quiet, great bed. Wonderful sheets. Nice design, relaxing room. This specific hotel distinguishes itself within hotels of its class and I will stay at other Westin hotels based on this perfect experience. All staff members were pleasant and helpful. Room service was quick - great gumbo!... More

Well you can't get any closer to the ballpark if that is why you are considering this hotel since it is literally caddy-corner to the park so form the front door it is a one minute walk!. . Beyond that you should consider that the hotel was clean, quiet and the staff was both pleasant and very accommodating to us.... More

We were in town for a rugby event and this hotel is very convenient to both Compass Stadium and Minute Maid park. The hotel rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. There were staff available to assist your needs at all times. The restaurant was great and the lobby bar was a great spot... More
