“Not your typical embassy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This hotel represents a new concept for embassy. This hotel is superb. It is clean, modern, and very up close and personal. The managers reception and breakfast is even beyond the typical embassy fanfare. It does not look like any embassy you have ever seen.....it is over the top and will far exceed your expectations.

My daughter and I recently stayed here for a girls weekend. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel! It was a special weekend for us (mainly for my daugher), and I let the front desk know before our arrival. They went above and beyond my highest expectations. Much to our surprise, and my daughter's delight, the wonderful staff had a few perks waiting for us in our room. Sabrina, Erick, Sammy and the rest of the staff showed exceptional customer service throughout our stay. Very friendly, we were always greeted by our first names. Food was great. The suite was very spacious, spotless and the beds were beyond comfortable. It also is in an ideal location, Town and Country is just minutes away. I cannot imagine ever staying at another hotel when we visit Houston. Thanks so much Sabrina, Erick, Sammy and the rest of the outstanding staff!!!

This hotel is in the "energy corridor", nearby to many of the world's largest energy companies. I travel for work frequently, and here is what is important to me and how this hotel stacks up:

1. Both free and valet parking is available. Covered parking is free and keeps car from baking in the Houston heat. Well lit in the dark. Can get a little bit crowded sometimes, but overall very good. A- (some of the spaces feel cramped, partially due to many of the "big trucks" in Houston).

2. Clean and modern lobby. Well decorated. Convenient bar/lounge area (bright, open -- not dark or out of the way). The traditional "manager's reception" every evening is good for free drinks. The snack shop is best I have ever seen, and not horribly priced -- everything from shoelaces to beef jerky to ice cream to candy to memory sticks to water to muscle milk and other drinks. A+

3. Breakfast. Beyond excellent. Everything you'd ever want, and more. Healthy + non-healthy options. Friendly and plentiful wait staff to help too -- usually this is a "miss" with other hotels with free breakfasts. Plenty of seating options and tvs to watch while you eat. A+

4. Check-in. Fast, efficient. A+

5. Work Out Facility. Clean, with towels provided. From my memory: 3 treadmills, 3 ellipticals, 1 recumbant bike, free weights. Would like more exercise bikes. B

6. Rooms. 2-room suites. Room 1 with HDTV and desk and couch with a neat footrest. Great bathroom, all the good stuff. Bedroom with HDTV and desk. Comfy beds and lots of pillows. Good cloest space. Rooms are quiet. Mini-fridge and mini-bar area. I rarely use this area, except to dump my stuff (car keys, hotel key, sunglasses, etc.). Only complaint is that I like rooms to be *very cold*, and like most hotels, I am disappointed when it gets cool, but not *cold*. B+

7. Location. It's on a feeder road to I-10. So if you want to do anything, there's not much to do unless you get in your car. And the feeder roads are one-way, so to go "across the street" you have to drive a bit. Not a problem with the hotel, but it's the way a lot of Houston is designed. C

Overall grade: A-

Was greeted with great staff as soon as I entered the Hotel Lobby. Very Polite and courteous. I would recommend this hotel to anyone either for business or vacation. Great all the way around!!!
Staff was always eager to help with any questions. Bed was very comfortable and was easy to get a great night sleep. Free Breakfast was great and didn't taste cheap like some other lower quality hotels.

Great location to the Energy belt west of Houston. Super clean hotel, good food in the resturant and the happy hour that seems to extend beyond the normal 2 hours is great. The bartender does a great job and really hustles. Very clean and well equipped work facility as well.

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions over the last three years and have always had a good time. The rooms are great, the breakfast and evening reception are nice and the staff have always been helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side away from the freeway to have a quieter stay.
