The area has tons of homeless. The hotel was safe and the valet was super nice and friendly. It’s vintage and has a lot of character. The rooms were clean. Bed was comfortable! I would stay here again.

The valet and the young lady that checked us in did a great job. The overall cleanliness of the surrounding area is terrible. The amount of homeless people and trash was very disappointing. Our walk to the Astros game was very unsafe. Houston has a problem!

Apparently, the management thought it was a smart cost control measure to leave the AC off in the unoccupied rooms . . . in Houston where the humidity is high and ever-present. Mildew, damp, smelly. No food service in hotel.

We traveled to Houston to visit our daughter and stayed at the Sam Houston downtown. It was a great location and the hotel was historic looking and well kept. We were a little surprised that there was no cleaning service available so we did our own bed making and towel changing, etc. It wasn't bad at all and the room was so clean at our arrival it was easy to keep it that way. These pandemic times are difficult and it shows in the service areas, on airlines, restaurants and at the Sam Houston. People did the best they could with a friendly, helpful attitude and I hope life gets back to a more normal for them and for all of us.

I took my wife to Houston for vacation to this hotel. We pull up to the hotel multiple times to police hauling people off, or homeless men cat calling my wife. It was great best part is you have to pay a 30 dollar valet. It gets better you pay for a premium room. It is maybe 300 sq ft with not even a mini fridge. No food service available at the hotel. Even the rest of Houston is wide open
