“In serious need of a facelift but good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Those positive reviews are obviously not used to the Four Seasons standards. This one has indeed large rooms but those are at the level of an old Marriott certainly not a FS. Still Houston is the equivalent of a desert in terms of hotels so not much choice...

This is a very nice place; easily the best in downtown Houston. It is a very large hotel; unusually so for a Four Seasons. As a result, it does not have the intimacy Four Seasons customers are used to, or the very high level of service. This hotel hosts a lot of conventions. The rooms are very pleasant, some with nice bay windows. The desk and desk chair are pretty good. The internet is mediocre, even at the higher speed level. Beds, linens and towels are all top quality, although I don't care for the duvet approach Four Seasons uses. But, the quality is good. Bathrooms were nicely appointed, but generally don't have a separate shower. Service generally is very good. Pleasant, if large, bar. Just got back from a large meeting at the hotel, and I have to say that the banquet food was dreadful. My experience over the years with the restaurant is similar. Expensive, not very good food. Valet parking only. But, they are very good.

i just stayed at this property for three nights while i was on a business trip. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and well looked after by the very professional housekeeping staff. There is a very well equipped fitness facility on the 4th floor which i did use and a nice outdoor pool which i did not try because of the weather. The front desk and concierge staff were well-trained, polite and very helpful. The rooms aren't cheap here but you get what you pay for at the Houston Four Seasons.

I stayed at the Four Seasons last night for a business meeting. Business travel is no fun anyway but staying at the Four Seasons makes it all worthwhile. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and well maintained. Hotel is about 2 blocks from the Toyota Center (Rockets) and about 4 blocks from Minutemaid (Astros) Location is just great.

Room Tip: Room 828 is a Superior King and a very nice room with a westerly view out toward the Toyata Center.

Everything you would expect from a Four Seasons - great room, wonderful customer service, a very knowledgeable concierge. Great location downtown. The car service at the hotel will take you and pick you up anywhere within 2 miles at no charge (with just a tip to the driver). They took us to Morton's and a couple of other restaurants. Try Mia Bella for dinner and The Grove for lunch. Ask the hotel to make a reservation for you even if you are already on your way. We went to The Grove for lunch and never would have gotten seated were it not for the hotel calling on our behalf just a few minutes before. Everyone else was getting seated outside, even folks that probably arrived before the call from the hotel came. But because they called, we were seated inside the restaurant right away. There is nowhere at the hotel to buy a soft drink or necessities i.e. no gift shop. So if you want snacks for your room or anything like that, get it elsewhere before you get back to the hotel. The only place to purchase a beverage is the hotel bar/lounge or room service/minibar. the bedding in the room is phenomenal. Be warned, once you settle into those pillows you will not want to go out again. It's a beautiful property with all the luxuries and excellent customer service that the Four Seasons is known for.

I stay at this hotel many weeks on business. It is consistently a great value for the cost. Clean and pleasant rooms. Responsive and attentive staff. The restaurant is decent with a variety of price points and the bar staff are excellent. The hotel offers free limo service within a three-mile radius, which includes the Galleria.
