Stayed at the WU Residence Inn for 70 nights straight. This hotel was perfect for my needs. The staff from the Front Desk, Cleaning, Maintenance and Management were friendly, helpful and a pleasure to deal with. If you are in need of a long or short stay I would highly recommend this hotel. Only issue was that the wireless intenet... More

The hotel is right off the highway, but we couldn't hear that in our room. It might have been covered by the loud AC. The room was large and the bed was comfy. The front desk service was good.

May 2010. We had the opportunity to spend several nights at this property when we were in the area. The hotel off of a side road off of the toll way. Be careful about driving on the toll way or you could get fined $25.00 each way. I recommend staying off of it. This property is near Rice University, the... More

I stayed at this Residence Inn the freezing cold night of Christmas Eve 2009. I had a nice suite that was perfect in every way. I don't know how old this hotel is, but my room didn't have any wear and tear at all. I was especially happy about the extra blanket due to the cold weather (I like to... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2009

We ended up with a studio suite and it was plenty enough space for the four of us. The front desk receptionist was very sweet and very apologetic (Travelocity pulled a number on us) but the clerk did whatever she could to appease us. We have one teenager and one 9 year old and we had a queen sized bed... More

We are a family of 5 teenage(ish) kids and it is hard to find a hotel that will accommodate all of us. There were 2 bedrooms and a living room/dining room/kitchen area with a fold out sofa. All 3 rooms had big flat screen TV's. The price was very reasonable and as there was a full kitchen, if you had... More

My wife and I stayed in a studio suite at the Residence Inn-Houston West University for two nights/three days recently and we both thought the place was great. Although we arrived early (12:15 p.m.) the staff went ahead and allowed us to check in. Our room was spacious and had a kitchen with full size stove, refrigerator, plates utensils, etc.;... More

I really liked this hotel although I think it was a little overpriced for the size of the room. I stayed in the queen suite with my 6 yr old and a 13 yr old. I liked the suite because it had 2 tv's, and they are the lcd tvs. this was a very nice option...very large tvs too. The... More

I searched long and hard for the best hotel for the money for my solo leisure trip to Houston/Galveston. I wanted a considerably nice room at a hotel that offered free wireless Internet service, free breakfast, free parking, and at least a microwave in the room. While many of the "upscale" hotels may offer more luxurious rooms, they charge ridiculous... More

Great place, hard to find because of signage restrictions. It's behind the Courtyard at the same entrance. West Park is a parallel road to Hwy 59. Great staff. Lots of folks staying there that go to Texas Medical Center or Anderson Clinic. Super friendly staff and great shuttle service. Guadalajara, Chick Fil A, and Goode Seafood restaraunts across highway. Krogers,... More
