I frequently stay in Marriott Courtyards, Hilton Garden Inns etc for business travel, and this is probably my most favorite place when I'm in Houston. Obviously one of the key benefits is proximity to the HP campus for me. But there are other things that I just really like:
- I never sleep well away from home EXCEPT here. There is something about the mattress and the nice heavy duvet that makes me feel really snug
- The windows open to allow fresh air in (great if you're on an upper floor and not concerned about some lunatic climbing in
- love the little kitchenette with glasses, plates, silverware (including wine opener!!)
- I think the breakfast in the morning is great. Don't understand some other reviewer's comments about sugar-loaded stuff. They alwasy have at least 2 types of fresh fruit, and yogurt. Plus cereal. And generally mini breakfast burritos or english muffin sandwiches. And juice....
- Also love the evening happy hour. Free beer and wine, and munchies. I've made this into dinner before now
My only negative comment is:
- no room service/restaurant. If you know in advance, that's OK, because the mall across the street has many eating options. First time here I did not know about the mall, and had to eat a dinner of microwaved frozen food (which the pantry on site sells).
On my last Houston trip I couldn't get into the Element and was panicking, then something came available at the last minute so I was OK. I've already booked ahead for my next trip in April so I don't face that prospect again.
