I've stayed here 3 times now over the past year. I keep going back because of all the freebies Embassy Suites throws at you. Free drinks, free snacks, free breakfast. The Hotel is awesome, clean and new. The staff is very friendly and the bar tenders are great. But when it comes to getting a good night's sleep, for me, this hotel fails miserably. This is Houston, its hot outside.... virtually all the time. If you arrive around the 3pm check in time, you are greeted to a hot blast of humid air in the hallway outside your room. The air feels thick. When you enter your room, the thermostat is set on 75. Comfortable enough to lounge in but far too warm for me to sleep comfortably. Here lies the biggest problem with the hotel. The air conditioners just don't cut it. When I initially arrived at 3pm, I turned the thermostat down to 65 degrees. By the time I left for the managers reception at 5:30pm it was 73 degrees in the room. When I got back to the room 2 hours later it was 72. When I went to bed it was 72 and when I woke up in the morning at 8am the room was 70 degrees. I had to throw both the sheet and the comforter off to keep from sweating. The first visit I thought it was a faulty A/C (it never got below 74). The second visit I new something was wrong (different floor, different room), The 3rd visit solidified the fact that the hotel's room A/C is just plain poor. If you like it cold when you sleep and condensation on the windows when you wake up; avoid this place. I am going to give them one last shot and call ahead to request that the room be 70 degrees when I arrive so maybe it has a chance of being cold at bedtime. Otherwise, I will pay more to frequent one of the other Embassy Suites in Houston for my weekend getaways.
