A clean, contemporary midline hotel located right on the waterway/canal in the Woodlands. A great alternative if you find Houston a little much and won't be venturing too far into the city.
Rooms felt new and clean. Not a luxury hotel, but definitely at the higher end of what I've seen from Marriott. I felt comfortable walking around barefoot in our room, which is saying something. Great views of the canal can be had in some rooms. Big flat screen TV. No in-room safe though.
Beds were comfy, but felt a bit smaller than the usual 2 queens arrangement you see most places. If you like a cold room at night you may be disappointed--our A/C never quite rose to the occasion, despite very mild temps outside. Add to that the group of screaming drunk people running down the hallway pounding on doors very late Saturday night, and the sleep quality was not the best feature of the hotel.
Big points off too for toilets that literally appeared to take a full minute to flush, with water swirling the entire time. This was not a "jiggle the handle" situation, but something we observed in 2 different rooms. The impression was of senseless water waste in a state that just got out of its worst drought since the Fifties.
Our boy had a blast riding the water taxi and trolleys that stop a short walk from the hotel. Easy walk to lots of restaurants and shops, as well as the nearby concert venue (Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion?).
The price was not the cheapest you'll find, but overall a nice option for business or leisure travel in the Woodlands/North Houston area.
