“Perfect Choice for MD Anderson patients/families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2010

This hotel's location and comfort provide nice solace for those undergoing treatment at MD Anderson as well as families and care givers. This is a "no-frills" place to stay but is very clean and has a nice variety of food choices as well as a nice pool/hot tub area. This would never be a place to choose if you didn't have a reason to be at MD Anderson, but if you do, it's a nice option.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2009

If you have a loved one in MD Anderson, the hotel is a bit pricey but for serious procedures such as surgeries (when your loved one will need you within walking distance), it's a very good amenity.

For the area, it is probably not that expensive, it's just more than I'm used to paying, There is a safe in (most rooms, I assume) and hairdryer and other convenience items. Some have kitchenettes (coffee maker, microwave, small fridge, sink) which are handy if you are staying more than a couple of days.

I think the information available about where to go and what costs there are (5 dollars a day for the parking garage, even if you're staying in the hotel) could be a bit more organized and accessible. I didn't see any maps of the buildings and the motel but I think that would have helped me navigate my first time at MD Anderson.

The beds could have stood to be a bit more comfortable but weren't as bad as some I've slept on. Note: I rarely ever like hotel beds, it's just too hard to sleep in a strange place (on the road) for me and I'm picky about a bed's comfort.

Rotary House is a walkway across from the MD Anderson clinics and hospital. If you are a patient at MD, this is the most convenient place to stay, especially if you are having a series of tests run and can go back to your room inbetween tests. Parking is free with hotel stay, and the restaurants and shops within the "campus" make it a great place for caregivers and patients to park and not have to travel to get to appointments, etc. Within the hotel: Starbucks, Ice Cream service, market with pizza, salad bar, deli, and a full service restaurant. A volunteer gift shop carries necessities and cancer patient items, as well as a clothing selection. Lobby area is relaxing, with wonderful sitting areas and a musician playing soft evening music on alot of the days we have been there.
