We opted to try The Westin for an overnight "staycation ". The stay wasn't bad at all...we just expected more. The valet wasn't friendly with us AT ALL...so it kind of set the tone for our stay and left a bad taste in our mouths. We've stayed at plenty of hotels and with vet service, we at least expect a...

I've stayed at this hotel many times and it is, without a doubt, the best hotel in Houston. The service is always excellent. The location is perfect for ballgames or for planning an excursion anywhere around the city. The lobby bar is great, as is the breakfast in the restaurant. The rooms are spotless and so comfortable. I would recommend... More

this stay was by sheer accident as our flight to New Orleans has been cancelled. We arrived and the supervisor attempted to sort rooms out for the eight of us as we had flown a red eye form anchorage and our luggage had gone missing. So we were all exhausted. 'Ruddy' did an amazing job helping us out. The room... More

I have been to Houston three times in the last two months for medical care at MD Anderson. My husband and I have stayed in five different hotels and the downtown Westin is by far our favorite. This is our second time at this hotel. This is our favorite Westin! The rooms are beautiful, soothing, well maintained, and clean. The... More

The Weston hotels, when they opened, were supposed to be the epitome of luxury. The only thing luxury was the rack rate for this room was extreme and not any better than the Deluxe room for 143.00. The rooms are not that well insulated, on the 20+ floor we could still hear the Harleys going by the hotel after 10... More

Dear Sam S: Thank you very much for your review of The Westin Houston Downtown. I am sorry to hear about the noise issues you encountered while staying as a guest.

Rooms are very well kept and have a great bed. The location is very central and right next to Astros stadium. Hotel staff are friendly and there are many restaurants in walking distance. Hotel offers valet but can be a bit pricey.

We stayed here Friday night for the Garth Brooks concert. It is perfectly located downtown for sporting and concert events ( even soccer). Next to arguably the best steakhouse in Houston (Vic & Anthony's) it also has a nice restaurant and bar on the premises, with 24 hour dinning room service. We went to the 11:30 show so did not...

As a hotel, started life as Inn at the Ballpark. The same owner recently rebranded it as a Westin. Minor renovation to remove most of the baseball theme and repaint, etc. in a gray/green/blue palette. Good location downtown steps away from the Astros ballpark and near the George Brown Convention Center. Only valet parking. If you want to eat at... More
