We had a family member who was having long-term medical treatment in Houston’s medical center, so we spent many nights over several months at the Crowne Plaza River Oaks. As you may know, long-term medical treatment can be extremely wearing especially when the health problem is life-threatening, and for us the Crowne Plaze was our refuge from the storm providing us a place of peace and tranquility during our many stressful days.
The people who help me at a hotel are usually what make the difference for me between a good stay and a great stay, and this was our experience at the Crowne Plaza. The staff in general were outstanding and two of them were especially exceptional from beginning to end - They are Debbie Hollier, the Director of Sales and Marketing, and Mandy Bates, the Concierge. They took such wonderful care of us, addressing our every need, and were always there to brighten our days with a smile and kind voice. There were many others that I should also mention as they are all part of the finely-tuned orchestra that helped us on a daily basis – Freida Bell; and at the front desk were Roxanne, Shaila, Tara, Jackie, Chris, Marcella, and Anna Maria; and the operator, Sammy.
The hotel itself is also quite impressive. The lobby is well-decorated. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the suites are spacious with a 2-room layout. They have a cocktail lounge and restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And they have a parking garage providing cover from the rain, and shade from the sometimes intense Houston sun. They truly have everything you need.
I strongly recommend the Crowne Plaza River Oaks for any length of stay, and I would especially recommend them for a long-term stay.
