“One of the nicest Embassy Suites I've found in Texas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Great hotel downtown!
One of the newest additions to downtown Houston, this particular Embassy Suites is one of the nicest I've stayed at, and I've stayed at many around the U.S.

We stayed here on a Saturday night because we were seeing a show at the Toyota Center. Not only did they give us a good rate, they had a Cadillac Escalade shuttle to take us to the Toyota Center. Really made the night that much more romantic.

They also have an outside heated pool and hot tub on the 3rd floor.

Rooms weren't too huge but they were quite comfy. It was quiet and we slept very well.

Breakfast wasn't really good, hence the 4 stars instead of 5.

I would reccomend this as one of the top hotels for business travelers in downtown Houston. Hilton usually does a good job and this particular property speaks to that reputation.

We were in Houston for the National Clay Conference. We were within easy walking distance to the Conference Center. The Hotel overall was Great. The made to order breakfast was perfect. The evening happy hours and snacks were very good. Could not have asked for anything better!

I was in Houston for a 30-hour visit. I needed a restful place to stay downtown. Embassy Suites was perfect. Responsive, courteous staff. Valet parking was prompt when I requested my car. The room was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The breakfast was quick and very good. Result: rested traveler ready for the next day.

Stayed here for a Rockets game since it is a block away from the Toyota Center. Location is great since it is within walking distance to the convention center, Minute Maid Park, and across the street from Discovery Green. Modern decor throughout is great making it feel like a boutique hotel. Lots of room with two comfy queen beds, wet bar with fridge, and living room with table and pull out couch. Value is amazing with free buffet breakfast that had everything you would want from cooked to order pancakes and omelettes to oatmeal and fresh fruit. Free happy hour with open bar, egg rolls, cheese, crackers, etc. plus free in-room wifi (strong), all terrific.

Please note that the nearby shopping is closed on Sundays, but we found the Grove restaurant overlooking Discovery Green serving a lovely brunch. Guadalajara behind the House of Blues was good for dinner and seemed to be open most times. As a previous reviewer wrote, downtown seems quiet no matter what day it is. Similar to other downtowns in a warmer climate, a few homeless wandering around the area.

Guests for Saturday night were some families and younger people dressed for a night out. Concerned about impending noise but was relieved when there wasn't any. Mainly business travelers during the week (glad to be at happy hour from what I can see).

Suggestions include adding at least two towel bars to the bathrooms. Right now there is only one hook and you cannot air towels after use for them to be reused in support of the green concept encouraged by the hotel. I ended up draping towels over the little drawers that were in the vanity and the shower rod to air them out. Sliding bathroom door would not close all the way and had to use towel to keep it shut. Not great for privacy. Housekeeping seems to come late in the day even after I called to request service (and I leave tips), so it would be good to help them prioritize the rooms for cleaning. Elevators had a musky, wet dog smell at times (the pool? but not sure). Probably should investigate the source.

This was a great trip and staying at the hotel was nice- cute decor and nice people- who could ask for more. The Super Shuttle picked me up and dropped me off, eliminating the rental car hassle! Love Houston, so clean and GREEN!

Downtown Houston is pretty lame but this hotel was great if you at the George Brown Convention center. It is a block away and you walk through a lovely park to get there. The hotel is clean and super cute the way it is decorated. Kind of a modern theme with some country accents here and there like the white bathroom furniture and oddly shaped mirror. I will definitely stay again when I go to Houston for a convention.

Really fun decor, beautiful large modern rooms. Very clean. Breakfast was outstanding and the muffins may be the best muffins I have ever had. And they offer Diet Coke in to-go cups! (every other Embassy Suites uses cocktail glasses). Also, the breakfast stations were spread out so you were never waiting for people in front of you, even though they had a large crowd. Lots of seating also. Very comfortable. Front desk staff was terrific, polite and efficient. The only thing not great is that pulling up to the hotel, there is no room at all, you just stop on the street. But, I have to give credit to the Valet guys as they were fast and friendly and seemed to enjoy the challenge.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Discovery Green Park
