This is a nice hotel but it isn't great. The rooms are large and the bathrooms are updated. The staff was friendly especially the concierge lounge ladies. The location is perfect for my meetings and better than the Galleria hotels due to no traffic.
The bed: needs updating. The mattress looked old and a worn pillow top was thrown on top to make it seem better. The sheets didn't fit so as soon as I sat down on it they would fold up and expose the mattress itself. That got annoying.
Parking: finding the entrance is hard enough but finding the hotel parking lot is harder. The signs aren't clear and they all say " no SUVS". I drove mine in anyway and barely fit because I didn't see any other options besides valet which I didn't have time for each morning. Trying to exit the garage is hard too because my keys never worked so I had to call each time to let me out. If you're handicapped there are no elevators from that level to the hotel. Only an escalator which isn't big enough to fit luggage on. It's just not user friendly. Maybe they want people to pay more for valet.
The concierge lounge: excellent breakfast and good cocktails each night. Made my stay a little better.
Gym/pool: the gym was large and had plenty to choose from. The pool area was great but it was too cold outside to enjoy this time. I bet it's great in the summer.
I'd stay again due to location for my meetings but I'm a little hesitant. As a Marriott gold member I may try the JW Marriott instead and fight the traffic.
