During the ice storm, I ended up staying in Houston not because of the weather but because our fight crew was late. So the airline put me up overnight.
I asked for a Holiday Inn. The one near the airport is great. Of course it might need some updating but it's comfortable and probably one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in. And I just left 5 days at a HI Express.
When I got to the hotel. I was checked in by Ruby. What a personality. Happy. personable and very friendly and helpful.
I asked if I could use my HI awards card but she said since the airline is comping my room and paying my meals, I couldn't use it. However since I was a gold member, she said she could upgrade my room and she gave me a couple of drink coupons.
So I checked into my room, then went downstairs to the lounge/restaurant area and sat at the bar. The place was packed.
I met Rocky, the bartender. another great employee. I had a couple of drinks and a Reuben sandwich that was excellent.
In the morning I went for breakfast and had the buffet. It had an omelet station and I had some fresh eggs and a wonderful waffle.
I have to say, I don't stay at too many hotels near the airport but the people alone here make this a great hotel.
