4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We choose this hotel due to it's proximity to Minute Maid Park. Our room was clean, the staff were courteous, and breakfast was well stocked. My only two issues with this hotel were the plumbing and moldy odor near the third floor elevator/common area. The shower and toilets are EXTREMELY loud. After two nights of waking our infant son up... More

Great hotel for our family baseball trip, free parking, free breakfast (which included a lot of hot and cold options), free milk and cookies and free cocktail hour for IHG members. Walking distance to the park.

Peaceful, super-friendly staff, tidy and clean, updated decor, hot-tub soak, 4 o'clock cookies and milk, wine at 5p. What's not to love? All the positive reviews I read prior to booking did not mislead.

The staff & hotel was just wonderful. Everyone at the front desk was super nice, especially Rene. When I checked in Wednesday night and I told her what I was in town for she still remembered when she saw me Thursday evening before I left for the event. The close proximity so many things along with the free parking is... More

Stayed there only for one night. Clean, comfortable, good breakfast. I got to the hotel early in the morning due to reschedule landing time from Chile and the staff was very accommodating. Early check -in and comfortable was all I need it and they understood that!

We stayed in this hotel for three days after a 14 hour flight from New Zealand The location of the hotel is good given that the CBD is two blocks away. Our room was of a good size and the bed had a thick covering on the mattress which made it very comfortable indeed. The pillows were also very comfortable.... More

Pleasant and friendly. Clean cold AC and rooms were available. Parking was available for large truck which was a benefit. Breakfast was hot and had a large variety of items. I personally think it was priced a little high but still cheaper than some of the others nearby.

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.
