I am generally a pretty laid back review writer. I tend to get a little more critical depending on the price of the room. I think that the more that when you pay top dollar for a room, you should have top expectations.
I have stayed at plenty of Marriott properties, and generally, they are pretty average compared to other "luxury" properties. On this particular trip, I stayed a little further south than normal so I booked at the Marriott near the Hobby Airport.
Considering where the property is, my expectations were not that high for this particular stay, however, every aspect of this hotel as far exceeded my expectations.
The front desk staff were very warm and friendly, which I did not expect as there were only two of them and there was a line for check in. What a pleasant suprise.
The room is typical for a Marriott property. Nice beds, comfortable appointments and a spacious restroom. The room was very clean and appeared to be exceptionally well maintained compared to other Marriott properties.
Room service at the hotel is reasonably priced. The menu was simple but offered things for most tastes. I ordered a simple cheeseburger, and paid what I would have paid at a Chili's or similar place. The food was excellent. Why can't Chili's burgers be better than a late night room service burger?
All things considered, this hotel is at the top of my Houston list for now on. It is easily accessible to the freeway, and heck, it is one of the nicest properties I have stayed at in a long time. I am very impressed. My hat comes off to the management and staff here.
