“Clean, convenient, Comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2006

This hotel is extremely well-kept, clean, and with a courteous and helpful staff. Located a half-block from the Galleria and close to incredible shopping and bustle, but amazingly quiet and comfortable. Queen suite is a true suite. Only stayed overnight, but would be a great long-term stay site, with ample size and well-stocked with conveniences.

I was at this hotel when Hurricane Rita was supposed to hit Houston. The staff was great, sent out a flyer about what was happening and what to do if the hurricane hit.

I was in a studio room on the 2nd floor, not really any noise problems except from the neighbors when they walked past my door or stood outside talking. The room was large, the bed comfy, in fact it was better than the stay I had at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Houston.

The location is half a block away from the mall, I could walk to the mall to attend classes.

There was a gate at the entrance to the parking lot, but it opened for any vehicle entering the premises. Even so, I felt safe staying here. The breakfast room had a tv so I could watch the hurricane coverage, and it was one of the better free continental breakfasts I've had. They even let me take an extra apple and yogurt to snack on later. Definitely worth the price.

The prior review covered pretty much everything. I'm contributing as well because I stayed in one of the one bedroom suites. I also paid $75 a night. The suite has a fully equipped kitchen with dishes, dishwasher, microwave, frig and pots and pans. The living room couch was a fold out bed and the king size bed was in a separate room. Internet was available only in the bedroom via a cable; it would have been nice to have access in the living room as well.

The only thing I would have preferred would have been interior corridors since Houston is so HOT and MUGGY in July. Just going from our room to the parking lot was an ordeal.

The breakfast really is astonishing. I wasn't surprised to see a taxi driver walk out one morning with a plateful heading to his cab. I suspect he wasn't staying there-- just tapping into a good thing.

The staff were very courteous and helpful.
