My husband and I checked into this property early yesterday evening. Very friendly front office staff. Ching Ching checked us in....

Our king room on the 8th floor was very lovely....comfortable bed, good shower and water pressure.....nice touch was the lighted makeup mirror!! Tons of natural light as well as ample lamps as well as tons of plugs for different things to plug in!

Be prepared to pay $15 for underground parking....you have unlimited access in and out for that price.

One change -- on the website, it states "unlimited free local phone calls". In their Guest Directory that they leave in the room, it states $.50/per local call...I called downstairs and they were unsure. I called the Diamond Desk and they said they spoke to a manager and the policy has changed and there really is a $.50/per local call. Hopefully, the website will be corrected to reflect the change!!

Being a Diamond Member, we were offered complimentary breakfast @ Eric's. Really pretty restaurant inside....I ordered a cheese omelette with a bagel - very tasty and my husband had the french toast and he enjoyed that a lot too. Coffee tasted sorta burned tasting... so drank mostly water!!

As an alum of the Hilton College, I am proud to come back as a professional and see how far the hotel has come in a few short years. Since their receivnt renovation, they now have a beuatiful modern product and a friendly service staff consisting primarily of students from the hospitality program. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, from our warm greeting at the front desk to our check out. The guest rooms are spacious, with beautiful decor, comfortable furnishings, and a great updated bathroom. The room service and outlets are excellent, with great student interaction if you visit the student run coffee shop or lunch restaurant. A great experience this time, and I will absolutely return soon!!

Room Tip: There is a great view of the skyline from a number of the rooms, especially on the higher floors. B...

This is a teaching hotel with students from UH hotel mgt program. Very professional and friendly.

One review said you have to check in before you can enter garage. Not true! Get a ticket and take elevator up. Easy.

Hotel is very quiet and modern!

I stayed one night on a business trip. The hotel was fine, clean, and everything worked. It was interesting to see primarily students staffing the hotel. My only two gripes are (1) there is no executive level and (2) the glass shower is stylish but the door leaks, so you step onto a wet floormat after your shower.

Hilton Honors gold members get free breakfast coupons which are good for anything on the restaurant menu but no provision is made for food in the evening.

As someone else mentioned, the french fries are excellent, even after the journey via room service.

Be aware that you have to park in front of the hotel and check into your room to gain access to their underground garage. The garage is on the left-hand side of the building if you're facing the hotel. The garage feels a little sketchy. Try to park near the elevators.

I'd stay here again.

The hotel was pleasant, clean, located on the University of Houston campus. Guest are given access to the fitness facilities on the campus which include Olypmic sized swimming pools, rock climbing and spinning machines. The staff were extremely friendly and patient. This is a training facility for students who want to go into hospitality so you can expect them to try harder. The rooms are average size but look bigger because of the set up.

I attended the THLA Short Course from 01/08/2012 - 01/14/2012. I work in the hotel industry as well. This stay was the best i've ever had. I have to mention the F&B Staff. The staff in the bar ( Osli, Tao, Su and a couple othere) were AWESOME! I was in the bar everynight and was amazed at the service. Also the Night Auditor noticed i did not answer my wake up call. She found me to make sure that i was ok. GREAT SERVICE. The entire hotel was amazing!!!! Thank you for making my week there memorible.
