I stayed here for business for a period of almost three months. I was put up in a one bedroom apartment and must add it was very comfortable. The property is very clean, its centrally located for grocery shopping etc. The kitchen is functional and I mostly made my own food. The most attractive feature of this particular property is...

Pluses: great staff, decent breakfast, cozy fireplace. Minuses: hard bed, very worn looking, especially for the price.

It's clean, the rooms are large, and the location--for a business traveler--can't be beat. But not worth the rack rate (over $180/nite) so stay only if you get a deal here.

I stayed here for my brother's funeral. It was a tough time because I had lost my son three weeks before. The staff was so accomodating. Will and Ray were so nice, and the staff behind the desk were very kind. The free full breakfast was good, dinner at the Courtyard was too. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate were served... More

I had three occasions to stay at the Marriott Residence Inn West University in Houston. All three were related to treatment I was receiving at MD Anderson. Most recently I stayed for over a month while receiving treatment twice a day and telecommuting. It was the perfect location, 3 miles from the Medical Center and bordering beautiful West University...lots of... More

I had booked my reservation online and messed up the dates, so when I checked in I was told I was actually booked for the night before. Ray at the front desk said no problem and booked me in for Sunday night and credited me back for the Saturday stay. I was traveling with my brother who was going to... More

We came to this hotel with frazzled nerves from a home remodeling project gone awry. Our 18-year-old cat, equally frazzled, was with us. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We needed to check in at 8:00am to allow work crews to be in our home. No problem for this Residence Inn. We needed to be undisturbed... More

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
