This hotel made me feel that life is to short to be over paying the odds. Bar was basic, though good fun. The hotel was past it's sell by date. Will maybe check out the galleria, etc when I'm back in a few days from an impromptu visit to Central America too collect me points.

This was our second trip to the Westin in downtown Houston in about 3 weeks. This trip was even better than the first! Even though there was a lot going on with football games and the baseball stadium being right next door, we were able to still have a very relaxing holiday weekend! The staff was awesome as usual!

I selected the Westin Houston Downtown because it is right across the street from Minute Maid Park where the Astros play. They have valet parking at a reasonable price. Just text them and your car will be ready in 15 minutes. The bathroom in my room (king size single bed) had a bathtub and separate shower stall which made me... More

I recently stayed in a corner suite and have to admit, what a beautiful hotel and room, however, both my husband and I woke up with tremendous back aches because the bed was so uncomfortable and room service took an extremely long time to deliver our burnt food. The hotel is also right next to a church whose bells chime... More

Travel on business, and had the opportunity to try a new location for a 2 night stay in downtown Houston. Right next to the ball park, and right next to a great Steak Place (Vic & Anthony's), the Westin is a modern Hotel with all the charm of what you would expect a Westin to be. The Staff was great....

This hotel was clean, comfortable, very nicely designed. It was the best smelling hotel I've ever been in my life! Like a man's expensive cologne. HOWEVER! We used a car service to take us to a concert. The service, though carried out by a sub-contractor was set up by the Hotel Staff with a service they regularly use. It was... More

We had been planning a stop in Houston for a few days during our annual baseball vacation and was glad when the Westin became available. I had been at this hotel before but never had the chance to stay here. The check in process was smooth and efficient. We always try and reserve a 2 bedroom suite or a suite... More

This hotel is so beautiful! My husband and I stayed here when it was Inn at the Ballpark and loved it then and love it now. The redesign looks great but kept the same ballpark feel with a touch of elegance. Room was immaculate, we stayed on the 3rd floor facing the ballpark. Great room, great location. 24 hour room...

We spent 2 nights at this hotel at the end of July. I love the little touches like the robe for your use and the fridge in the room. We had a corner room with an incredible view of a chapel and Minute Maid Park. They did include Wi-Fi for us but typically you have to pay for it. The... More

On the spur of the moment we headed to Houston to watch our hometown MLB team play the Astros at Minute Maid Park. The hotel is kitty corner to the field. The lobby is beautiful and inviting. There were crowds in the restaurant, bar and lobby. The servers do a great job getting around to everyone if you let them... More
