I'm posting this a little late (better late than never)...I stayed here in the middle of my relocation to Houston, in between a bunch of other stays - mainly due to proximity to the Galleria and areas I was home-searching. I checked in very late and the process was seamless. My room was large - an end unit. Large room... More

This hotel was perfect. It's less than 2 miles from the Museum District, so everything we wanted to see was close by. The hotel is very clean and quiet, it's set back away from the freeway, so you don't hear any road noise. We stayed for two days, and the young lady at the front desk always greeted us upon... More

Barring this hotel being pretty hard to find (though it is pretty much off the freeway), it was a good nights stay. The parking is kind of kooky; and the fact that there is a Courtyard Marriott practically attached to it is a little confusing. There was a mix-up at the front desk at checkin, but by checkout it was... More

The staff was excellent especially Dominic at the front desk, going above and beyond to make us feel at home. Breakfast was good and fresh, with a July 4th special red white blue yogurt snack. Nice and clean pool was lots of fun for the kids. Lakewood church , pastor Joel osteen's, a few minutes away was a bonus stop... More

Hotel is in a very good shape and reasonable location. Location is not a problem since they provide hourly shuttle service to places around the area. Kitchen is ok. Great breakfast. Nice and helpful staff. Well equipped fittness center. One thing to complaint about is the pool is too small for regular swim, tho it is still good for fun.... More

This was our home during a five-day stay for my son's college graduation. The hotel is great- nice rooms, great breakfast, great location, nice courtyard with pool and patio chairs. The rooms were ideal with the kitchen facilities. I was able to store food for graduation festivities with ease. The pool courtyard provide a nice get away when we needed... More

In comparison to other Residence Inns, the kitchenette could do a bit of updating in regards to appliances and decor. Common areas are clean and uptodate. Staff is attentive and friendly. The included breakfast is standard for RI. I appreciated the free WSJ.

The Residence Inn is an excellent choice for long term stays if you are needing to visit the Medical Center or work at Greenway Plaza. The location is convenient even though the proximity to more industrial surroundings are a little uncomfortable. The rooms are comfortable and have all of the amenities needed for extended stays. The staff is very warm... More

Despite the unhappy reviews of others, we had and excellent experience and we were satisfied in all respects. If the recent reviews are true, we got the best two bedroom in the house. With two baths, a kitchen and living room, and easy access to the city, we had no complaints, but to the contrary, only compliments. If I had... More
