Hilton University of Houston

Reviewed July 10, 2013

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!

Overall it was a satisfactory rating only that the staff needs to communicate with one another because at time of checkout they forgot to confirm that we had paid in advance the parking. Also, that they forgot to include the city tax, but it was cleared at checkout luckily we went down early prior to our training.

I arrived late after a long delay and was greeted by the night staff. They were very friendly and welcoming. Other than there being no places to eat nearby, my stay was perfect.

The next time I am in Houston this will be my hotel.

Room Tip: The top floors offer a beautiful view of the city.

Nice Hilton, slightly different feel from the standard which is nice. Access to the University fitness center is a huge plus and is only 1 block away from the hotel and is included in the room rate. Thought the parking charge of 15$ / night was excessive given the location. Overall , really like this hotel, Will definitely be back.

I found this hotel and its staff to go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and complete. It was extremely easy to get to George Brown Convention Center from here at any time of the day. Thanks for a quiet comfortable stay.

Comfortable stay, lovely place. Polite, cheerful attention. Would prefer to not pay for parking, but appreciate the safety and shelter of the garage. Complimentary internet nice. Cooling problems handled quickly and efficiently. Nice to be close to my daughter's location, but road work and sparse offerings of restaurants, etc in area are a trade-off. Still, felt safe and comfortable; that makes it a great choice.

The staff is so helpful. They look for ways to make our stay comfortable. Rooms are very clean and I am very picky about cleanliness. Beds and pillows are very comfortable. I even slept well the very first night. Parking is convenient and reasonable.
