Stayed here for two nights on business to Houston. Fairly easy to reach from the airport however the location is not well marked; you need to turn at the entrance of Greenspoint but there is no Marriott sign there. If you miss the turn it will take you 15 minutes to make several U-turns and navigate the nutty Houston traffic.
This property has a decent executive lounge, although on the small side. Pour your own drinks and you can get a decent glass of wine or shelf liquor for a standard price. Snack foods and breakfast were okay, average.
Beds are nice Marriott quality but rooms are worn. There is sun tinting on the windows that is peeling off. The first room they gave me smelled like a nursing home. After switching I got a decent room. Note these rooms have below-window A/C and heat like a Courtyard property, they do not have wall-enclosed systems.
Staff is friendly but not top-quality. When checking in I asked for a room facing the rear, away from the freeway, and the receptionist turned to her co-worker and said "do you know which rooms face the rear? and the co-worker replied "uh, no, I don't". They finally called the manager who said she "thinks those are low even numbers". Turns out she was right, but they were a little bit green on this basic topic.
The gym is average and has several treadmills/ellipticals but not much for weights. The pool is okay and extends half indoors & outdoors.
As noted by other reviewers there are some weird safety things, ie. all of the doors have an extra strip of metal over the lock area to prevent break-ins, and the entire hotel property is surrounded by a metal fence. However, I saw no actual reason to be concerned. The surrounding area looks like normal commercial business. Maybe there was some over-reaction at one time.
I would stay here again if on similar business. There aren't many better options in the immediate area.
