I have just spent a 5 week stay followed by a 6 week stay at this hotel, I was on business but was so impressed by the hotel and location, I flew my wife and 3 children out from the uk to stay with me for 3 weeks during this time. Although I was working we all had a great... More

I stayed at the Residence Inn because it was convenient to a hospital where a friend was being treated. Not a scenic location by any stretch of the imagination, but it's good if you are staying at a nearby medical facility. Many restaurants nearby. The staff were extremely friendly, professional and solicitous. When they didn't know the answer to something,... More

Having just returned from a 4 day stay in Houston for a family function, I have to say that Residence Inn was a very good choice. Room was clean, breakfast was more than ample, and the small workout room (2 Precor treadmills, recumbant bike, stair climber and free weights) was fine for my wife and me. Further, the price was...

While in town in Houston, I took advantage of a relative's "friends and family" discount to stay at the Residence Inn in Houston. I room was fine but the staff I found to be a bit incompetent. First, they said they did not receive the proper paperwork from my relative, which precipitated a call to her and her jumping through... More

Our stay at Residence Inn-West University was very enjoyable. All employees were very accommodating, especially Joseph & Will. It was great to have complimentary hot breakfast every morning and evening HH was very good. Great Location..several restaurants, grocery store within walking distance. We used shuttle service to go back& forth to MD Anderson which helped keep us from having to... More

The first morning, we went down to breakfast and when we returned, the room was already made up. This was unexpected. I had left my laptop computer there in plain sight. Further, my wife had forgotten to put on her moneybelt, which contained a significant amount of cash. The laptop was there, untouched. The moneybelt was sitting on the pillow.... More

Spent 4 nights here in October 07; had a studio suite. Was very nice, very roomy, very clean. All the comforts of home. Bed extremely comfortable. Great buffet breakfast including hot items (eggs,etc.). would definitely return.

Four of us spent an overnight here recently in a one bedroom unit. We chose it because it was close to family and a reasonable price given the area. It was an okay place to stay, but certainly not great. On the plus side, the breakfast was excellent, the place was clean, furniture and decor were lovely and the people... More
