“Nice spot- renovated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

Very pleasantly surprised by the nice renovation of this hotel. Great location by the Galleria, Memorial Park and River Oaks. Pool area was pretty and loved the old-growth trees and plants at this hotel. Only negative was that there was a stick pin wedged in the carpet and I cut myself on it as I was getting dressed one night. Would certainly stay here again.

Our visit this past weekend was definitely a Perfect 10. From check in to check out, we received fantastic service and our room was well-appointed, beautiful, and relaxing. We especially enjoyed our service from Jacob, who provided us with shuttle service to and from dinner at Truluck's on Saturday night, and Amanda at the Mokara Spa on Sunday morning.

We will definitely stay at the Omni Houston Hotel the next time we're in town.

We stayed here for a conference for work. It was not up to par as far as the other Omni's I have stayed at. It seemed kind of run down, but the rooms were very clean. The location is not the best, but it is in a nice area that seems very safe. There is a nice mall not that far away and it is a resonable distance from the convention center, which is where our conference was.

I wish that you did not have to pay for internet though, that seems kind of silly since you get it for free at much cheaper hotels. The breakfast was amazing and the wait staff was the best!

The staff really make this hotel nothing is too much trouble, they all smile and chat offer suggestions on where to go eat we really couldn't fault them. Rooms are spacious, well decorated with large hd tv coffee making facilities and very comfortable. Great buffet breakfast and large pool area. It is about 5 mins drive to galleria a huge mall and hotel offers free shuttle to anywhere in a 3 mile radius including here which is really helpful. Greeted at chec in with a glass of bubbly and we asked if we could check out an hour later than standard time which was agreed no problem and no charge. Great hotel.

I have stayed here several times and have been pleased with my stay every occasion. The staff is always very friendly and courteous upon check in. I have never had any issues with the room, checkout or anything during my stays.

The hotel lobby is very nice and well decorated. There are various chairs and couches around where you can relax and people watch over the pool. It is open with a lot of light inside and makes you feel warm and cozy being there.

Rooms are decent size and well appointed also. Plenty of furniture in them, with all the amenities you could need. There is even a minibar if you are so inclined but beware of the prices. Ouch!!! Bed is nice and comfortable and I have slept great every time I have been here. Bathrooms are good size and shower has great water pressure.

The pool area is also terrific. It can get a bit crowded on the weekends, but during the week it is not bad at all. They have a bar/snack bar there where you can get drinks and adult beverages while you relax by the pool. I spend quite a bit of time at the pool while I am staying. Shade is a premium here though so go early if possible to stake out your spot.

Fitness center is also great. Plenty of machines to keep you busy. Walking on the treadmills also allows you too look out onto the pool and pond area. A nice distraction while you are working out. They also have nice cold lemon water there for you to enjoy after your work out.

The only downside to this hotel and the reason for the star removal is parking. Unless you valet, you either have to pay to park across from the hotel and a pretty far walk or park in garage and walk even further. I usually park in the garage for free because you are going to be walking anyway so might as well not have to pay to walk. Other than that this hotel is great.

Hotel was okay but nothing special about the rooms, though they were clean and well appointed. Staff was very courteous and the party we had there was fantastic. We were especially surprised to see a $9.95 charge to use their Wi-Fi, a fee that is free at most hotels. The $6.00 charge for a bottle of water was almost a joke, though I've seen this at other hotels and it shows what some folks can write off as a business charge.

I stayed in Houston for only 4 days, however, the stay was fabulous. This hotel was magnificent from start to finish. For every small concern, they went above and beyond to fix it and make sure we walked away satisfied beyond our expectations. The beds are so comfortable, I want to buy one. Rooms are spacious. Everyone who worked at the hotel was friendly, and very customer service oriented.
Very enjoyable stay! Would go back any and every time I visit Houston!
