Holiday Inn Houston West Energy Corridor
Ranked #187 of 517 Hotels in Houston
Reviewed February 7, 2012

This modern hotel is well located for visitors to the enrgy corridor. Hotel restaurant doubles as a sports bar and is versatile enough to serve proper meals and drinks. Room facilities excellent size and good wifi. Food quality alright but the menu is over-hyped so don't be convinced by the positive adjectives on the dishes. Bacon for example is watch-strap thin, fatty and overcooked - so avoid. Coffee is insipid. Drink the coffee in the bedroom - it's much better, albeit still on the weak side. There are far too many huge intrusive TVs in the restaurant so not the place to relax without visual pollution (ie American 'football', basket and CNN).
Service is enthusiastic by all employees especially reception. Decent pool and gym. Bikes for hire (just $5) so you can get some open-air exercise in the nearby riparian parks. Hotel provides a shuttle bus to destinations within 5 miles - so all energy companies nearby plus shopping malls and outlets (recommend mega supermarket Target for electronics and most else). Eldridge is a long long way to downtown - a good 20 miles and 45 minute journey along flat freeways. The city is charmless. Think Milton Keynes and the industrial suburbs of Birmingham. Downtown is strictly utilitarian with no non-work related urban life to speak of.
The hotel is good value but isolated. If you want to spend more than a couple fo days here then rent a car so that you can visit other Malls and maybe get out to neaerby coastal towns like Galveston. A couple of restaurants and coffe bars nearby for respite: Coffee Bean (beterr coffee than hotel), a small Italian across the street. Sharky's - a restaurant, bar doing a reasonable range of local seafood Gumbos, shrimps etc along with usual burgers. Also a Japanese sushi bar alongside. Recommend the hotel but the city suburbs are a kind of sanitised purgatory - people used to pavements (there are hardly any), urban life with people walking around and basic public transport will suffer.

My trip was one night only- However this Holiday Inn had the nicest and newest rooms I have ever seen. Of course the service in TX is always warm and great! Good place to stay in town.

-nice, new upon entering
-friendly, accommodating staff but gave my reserved room away the 1st night & had to put me in a handicapped room. The general manager upgraded me the next night to a King "suite". It was 1/4 of the size of the handicapped room, with a couch shoved into the corner. I suppose the couch I'd what differentiates the "suites" from the regular rooms
-could hear EVERYTHING my neighbors said or did, unfortunately. (He had a cold...She "over active bladder syndrome" & trouble w a daughter-in-law back home)
-when bathroom flooded & toilet flushing mechanism broke, I cut my losses & moved to the fabulous new Hyatt Place in Sugar Land for $80 a night! Worth the drive.

Stayed four nights while on business in Houston. Check in was smooth. Large and light lobby. Free parking just outside the front entrance. Room was large, with refriferator and microwave oven. No minibar, but they sell drinks and snack in the lobby, inexpensive compared to usual hotel prices. The bathroom was very nice and modern, the soap and shampoo of the cheap sort, so good, so bring your own if you are picky... Free wi-fi, worked excellent! Everything was clean.

Had breakfast in the hotel restaurant, either you can order from a meny or go for the buffet. Not much to choose from at the buffet, but food was good and reasonably priced. The waiter was very friendly. At night you could have dinner or just a beer in the restaurant, it had a sort of diner/sportsbar feel to it.

There is a small gym, only one treadmill, but no one else there at 6 a.m, so no problem! small, indoor pool.

This is not a hotel you would stay at while on vacation, only if you have business or other reasons to spend some nights in Houston, or if you are just passing by and needs a place to sleep. You will not get anywhere in Houston without a car, however the hotel did have a shuttle that would take hotel guests to their office if nearby. There were some small restaurants and shops just outside the hotel, but if you want to do some serious shopping, Memorial City Mall is excellent, and not far, i would guess 10-15 minute drive, depending on traffic.

All in all, can recommend this hotel if you need somewhere to stay in this area of Houston, and the price was I got was very good, around USD 100 plus tax.

Stayed here for a second time in July 2011 and was pleased to receive the same friendly & courteous service at reception. The room was of a good standard with a very comfortable bed. Shower pressure in the bathroom was better this time. Unfortunately the catering and room service still has a long. long way to go before it even reaches barely acceptable.
