We stayed here over the weekend and the entire experience was bad.

Stayed here more than once for medical trips, the staff were all pleasant and service oriented, the room service was delicious and priced very reasonably. The room was comfortable and had most everything you could need, there was even a little "bonus" of some foot cream and face cream and some spray to help you relax. Will be my home...

Stayed here while visiting the Lakewood Church which is close by. The rooms were wonderful! The bedding was so comfortable, I could have slept all day! Service was great and we got a great rate on our rooms. Close to the museums and shopping. Will definitely stay here during next trip to Houston.

I was running late and missed the shuttle. I was going to find another way to get to the hospital for my appointment, when Eric offered to have the shuttle service give me a lift there just in time for my appointment.

Our experience in this hotel was better than we expected. We also received great suggestions for dinning and shopping by Montzerrat, who is the concierge at the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there when we return to Houston.
