Clean rooms and very nice staff. I loved having a K-cup coffee maker in the room and fresh cookies at 4. The breakfast was better than average and even had flavored coffee creamers. The beds were comfortable and I could pick if I wanted a soft or hard pillow, both were on the bed labeled.

Hotel is clean, staff are very friendly and accommodating to requests. Social hour for rewards members was a good idea. Unfortunately they only served Bud Light. I decided not to partake. Breakfast bar is terrific. They offer free parking in downtown Houston which is great, get there early though. Spaces are very limited.

This hotel is packed with great amenities and topped off with outstanding service. My daughter celebrated her 11th birthday in a suite with a few friends. We loved the indoor pool and the cookies and milk buffet. We will definitely be back for a staycation ome weekend.
