If you are going to a football game or other event at NRG Stadium, this is the place to stay. You walk out the back of the hotel and cross the parking lot and you are there. The desk was friendly and helpful. The rooms are fine. We had a double double on the weekend of the Houston-OU football game... More

Thank you for staying with us we are glad you enjoyed your visit. Anticipating the demand for our F&B outlets is one of our biggest challenges due to the relatively small size of our staff and the large and diverse groups that attend the sporting events here at NRG.

You can't beat this location with an adjoining parking lot to NRG stadium. It's also walking distance to Ross, Fiesta grocery store, FREEBIRDS and more. The hotel may seem a little outdated from far away as you drive up because it is in an old traditional H I BLDG but don't let it fool you. They have updated everything and... More

Thank you for your recent visit to the Holiday Inn NRG/Medical Center area hotel we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

We stayed for the weekend for the Texans game. It is conveniently located by the NRG stadium...maybe a 5 minute walk. Hotel was ok, it seems older and it smelled musty. Housekeeping never cleaned our room and the room phone didn't work. But overall, the staff was friendly. We would stay again.
