I have stayed at this hotel one night every week during fall and spring semesters for about two years. I find the hotel to be excellent overall. I have become aware that a very large portion of the staff are students of the College of Hotel and Restaurant Management. They do a great job, often better than experienced professionals I've encountered at other hotels. The hotel always has a refreshing smell but I cannot get any of the staff to tell me the secret! Seeing it every week has allowed me to see some occasional problems, such as a broken elevator to the parking garages, but this lasted only a week or so and was not the fault of the staff. I suggest that if you have business at UH, do not consider any other place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the city. The view is spectacular.

The Hilton University of Houston is an OK hotel. The room are clean and reasonably sized, but somewhat dated and there is nothing special about the hotel or the rooms, so the price at over $300 for a regular room is too high.
The hotel caters primarily to the University of Houston, so unless you trip centers on that par of town, it is not a good location.

Room Tip: Away from the elevators as the hotel has a large amount of sports teams and others staying that can...

Construction in the area made accessing the facility difficult. There was also a festival that further blocked visibility.

It was difficult to understand the front desk staff.

My concerns about accurate billing were not addressed.

I went to this hotel for a conference, and it was very nice. I think it is staffed mostly by students who are studying restaurant and hotel management at the University of Houston. For the most part, everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant is your run of the mill hotel restaurant, but not bad, and the prices were fair compared to other hotel restaurants. All-in-all, it was comfortable, the catered conference meals were good, and the hotel is very clean.

I'm not sure I would stay here if on vacation as it is quite out of the way from anything besides UH. But for a football game, conference, or to visit students, it is a great, convenient place.

There is no free breakfast, but the breakfast in the hotel restaurant was pretty good.

The problem we had was with the meeting room. In 2012 we had a workshop of 40 participants, who needed to use their computers and there was not one plug in the room. After much complaining, there was an electrical unit that was brought to the room for which they wanted to charge us $500.00.
We did return for another training on March 2013 hoping that all would be fine this time, but our training room was freezing and people brought blankets. We complained for over two days and nothing was done. In the meantime two people became ill and one had to leave the training.
We also had terrible problems with the internet, but that was solved rapidly with land lines. The internet should be checked and assure that it is in working order prior to renting meeting space at $2,500. The problem is that once we pay for the training room, there is little if any help that follows.
