Me and my colleague are coming to the end of a week stay at the Hilton University of Houston for business and it is one of the best places I have stayed. We were pleasantly shocked and suprised by the sheer size of the room (they have a lot of floor space) and it has pretty much everything you need.
I agree with other reviews that say there is not that many places to eat near by (apart from subway and pizza hut takeaway) but trust me you don't need restaurants when you have ERICS right in the hotel lobby! Erics has to be one of my favourite parts of the stay, the menus have just the right amount of choice, has great burgers, the food is always cooked great and i can't fault it. They even have creme brulee on the dessert menu!
You can get a free pass to the fitness centre that is a minute walk down the road. It is AMAZING and i'm not even into the gym. It has every machine imaginable and plenty of them and basket ball courts, pool, etc. It's cool to see the college teams actually practicing basketball, and being from Britain I don't see that very much so it had a nice american feel to it!
The staff are super friendly even if they are deaf or don't understand my british accent (as i had to keep repeating myself), it is great service there.
Would well recommend staying here, just remember to bring cab fare as you wouldn't be able to walk to anything outside of campus!
