Stayed here for one night before a Princess cruise out of the new Bayport Cruise Terminal in Houston. Flew into Hobby airport early evening, called the hotel for the free shuttle and it was there with in 10-15 minutes. The driver was very friendly and helpful, including telling us that if we wanted to dine within a 5 mile radius, we could request the shuttle to take us there. We quickly checked in. The room was near the elevators but in a corner. Very clean and comfortable. We were a little worried as when we were checking in you could see young men all over the lobby. We were told they were there for a basketball tournament. Was so afraid it would be terribly noisy over night but it wasn't. There was a huge group and you could see they were having fun but very polite and we had no problem with noise during the night. We checked out the bar/restaurant. It is not very big but the bartendar was very friendly, offered us a menu to look over and then showed us the long list of restaurants nearby that the shuttle will take you to. The menu looked adequate but we decided we wanted fish/sea food and chose one of the restaurants on the list. Called the front desk from our room and they said just to come on down when we were ready to go to dinner. The same driver took us to dinner and stated to just call the hotel a little before we were done with dinner just in case he was picking up or dropping off at the airport or other locations. We did this and had very little wait. We had such a huge dinner that we did not try the breakfast buffet the next morning but it looked and smelled good. I asked at the front desk for a private car or taxi to take us to the cruise terminal and they called both to get prices for us. Once we decided, they made the arrangements for pickup. All the employees we came in contact with were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if I were in Houston. This is not a big fancy Marriott but well worth the price we paid.
