We thought we were at the wrong hotel at first! I was especially impressed that there was a Keurig coffee maker in my room complete with Keurig pods that... More

I spent few weeks on business trip in Whitehall Hotel. Location is very convenient for any Downtown office, you can walk through Skywalks, tunnels or just at street level. Jorge and John are exceptional hosts, really taking care of guests to the smallest details. Bar outside is very convenient, particularly if you have nasty smoking habit. Besides people like me,...

We had requested a King bed room, and when we arrived, we were assigned one; But, the bathroom was so small, you could not turn around in it, and the vanity only had room for half of our toiletries. To the credit of the front desk staff, we were moved to a larger King room with a great bathroom, and... More

Great service and price. close to downtown. Cab rides or uber are nearby. Pool is good and clean. Newly remodeled hotel. Bed is comfortable and staff is really friendly. We usually stay here when we are spending the weekend in Houston going downtown for a wedding or to hit up the bars.

Stayed at the Whitehall for several days. Very easy in and out (Louisiana in for us and out on Smith... two key arteries, many lanes wide). Hotel staff were considerate, kind and approachable. Room was clean and there was LOTS OF POWER OUTLETS. We stayed in a King room and there were 6 easily accessible outlets (on lamp bases) so... More

Me and my wife stayed at The Whitehall and we're amazed that we had never stayed at one of their hotels before. We have stayed at several different hotel chains, and we were very impressed with the staff and the cleanliness of this hotel. We look forward to staying here again next time we visit Houston.
