“Nothing special, but nothing horrible”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2010

We stayed here for a family gathering headquartered from the hotel. Given the choice, I probably would have stayed in the Staybridge Suites close by, but the hotel wasn't bad. The rooms were average, the front desk staff was courteous, parking was not too expensive, and the pool was comfortable and well appointed. The hot tub was very relaxing after a long day, so I'd definitely recommend that.

There was a fairly large guest-created problem with their fire alarm system that resulted in multiple alarms at ungodly hours of the morning, but the staff was responsive and kept guests informed with multiple letters about the situation and what they were doing to fix it. I appreciated the feedback and definitely felt better about the situation and the hotel after the information was provided.

I´ve been one week in Houston for business purposes. This hotel is well located, close to the Galleria. Rooms are clean, free internet, never needed to call maintenance, excellent service, good breakfast, garage is convenient and not expensive, front desk helps you in everything you need. Restaurants I recommend the Pappasito´s for Tex Mex food, Cheesecake Factory for general food and for steaks the very expensive but the best, Pappas Steakhouse.

I stayed in this Hotel for 1 week, for a business trip, The front desk personnel was very friendly, the check-in check-out process is very fast, the rooms are OK, not too big, the bathroom is large (but the bath itself is not very deep it might be a US specificity), there is no huge choice in the TV, they have free internet access in the room, very clean, the breakfast is perfect , very complete, you have all the choices you want. The Hotel is next to the famous Galleria mall which contains everything you may want, from cheapest to more expensive stores, there are also many restaurants, and if you are Muslim, there is a Lebanese restaurant (Halal) at 5-10 mn walk from the Hotel at Sage Road, take the south side (ask the Hotel personnel for directions).

Great location since it is within blocks of the Galleria area but the service is poor.

The rooms are consistent with Marriott Courtyard and always clean. The breakfast is busy and fast and pack most mornings with business travelers. There is no room service or dinner available and you do not want to go into the bar.
