“Nice small hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

This is a great little hotel for a couple. It is apparently part of the university's program for hotel management but you wouldn't know it. The staff is extremely helpful, the rooms are quiet and clean, and the hotel has a modern decor.

Hotel and its staff were quite good. Taxi service impossible. One hour wait at hotel, and never came at all at prominent restaurant after dinner - the waiter drove us back after an hour and three quarters.

Our room was modern and in excellent condition. The food at our Christmas party was excellent in all aspects and the wait staff was efficient. Check in and check out was efficient and the front desk employees were pleasant and helpful. We would recommend our out of town friends to stay at the hotel if they have business in downtown.

Attended a Christmas party for Executive Hunting Club at hotel; Bar, room & food were very good. The desk person was very nice. We had a problem in our room with the TV. Called front desk they came up immediately they connected the cable back to the TV and it worked fine.

If you are an out-of-state UH parent, get a Hilton Honors card and stay at this hotel whenever you're returning or picking up your student. We've done this for the past few years, and have a lovely experience every time we visit. There are no other really nice hotels in the area, and being right on campus comes in handy. The hotel is gorgeous and quirky, with Asian and Texas (cowhide) influences in the décor. The rooms are always sparkling clean, and the Peter Thomas Roth bath accessories are so nice that I have ordered more to have at home. Treat yourself! (After driving from another state with a college student and a loaded-down vehicle, you deserve it!)

Loved the hotel and staff will go back soon. Staff was very helpful. It was very clean and everything was up to date. I am planning another trip and will stay there again. The online pictures were just as the hotel

I stayed at the University of Houston Hilton when I visited the campus; the location can't be beat for convenient access to UH academic buildings. However, there didn't seem to be many other places nearby, other than on-campus restaurants. The room was pretty average for a Hilton - good condition, with a reasonably comfortable bed. No views from the room, but that's to be expected given the hotel's location. The attached restaurant was a pleasant surprise: better than what I'd have expected given the rest of the hotel.

The hotel is staffed at least partially by students in the hospitality school, so they were typically eager to please but often not so able to carry through due to lack of experience / knowledge. The hotel itself was a so-so value, and the added $15 for parking was somewhat excessive, in my opinion.
