Sam Houston was quite enjoyable. Excellent staff and comfortable bed. Restaurant served good food and bar had great drinks and service. Late nite flat bread and wine perfect. The only negative was over amount of putty around shower drain. Not a big deal.More

The location of the hotel was good, close to both sports venues, and the downtown eateries. But the hotel is just average. Rooms are clean, but small and dark decor did not really appeal to the family. It was okay.More

The Sam does not have a shuttle to the airport. They typically recommend Uber as the least expensive way.
