Very large room with king bed, sitting area, and desk. Spacious bath with separate shower and to, with double sink arrangement. Conveniently located to shopping and offices on west side of town. Concierge lounge offerings left a little to be desired.

Room Tip: The end corner rooms are extra large!

The hotel is just right for business. Good size rooms, comfy beds, decent location, nice gym, very good concierge lounge and good reliable internet.

Room and Hotel is all new, no wear and tear. The location makes for easy access to transportation (as the real estate agent would say). The service in the concierge lounge is second to none, it serves full breakfast and a very decent evening meal. I tried the full breakfast on a Sunday in the restaurant and there was really no difference.
The Gym is well appointed, again all new, par my points below. The pool looks nice, and there is a hot tub. If you like you can eat lunch in the bar/lobby.

This would have been 5 stars, but:
First, traffic noise. It is obvious that the close vicinity to the I-10 is going to be noisy. This is not loud noise, but none the less consistent all the time. Even at night.

Gym is located through the outside of the hotel, so if you go to the gym during the early hours of the morning (european with jet lag) you have to exit the back door of the hotel and enter the gym. Safety wise this not an optimal solution.

The lobby has recently been remodelled. I have not seen the previous design, but this is sort of up-beat lounge with a mix of cafe/jazz house with intense light and loud music. It might work for the leisure traveller but I kind of expect the warm quiet(!) welcome from the Marriott hotels. Of course this might just be me, but it is different.

The last quibble is the internet log on mechanism. If you have to pay $ 9.95 (ex.tax) per 24 hours, why can you not access with more than one device? It is close to rib off for one device, but $ 9.95 per device is daylight robbery.

Room Tip: I would say stay as close to the back of the hotel as possible, but in reality there is little diffe...

When we travel, be it for pleasure or business , we look for home like feel without the efforts. Maybe a bit of unique identity and fun would complete it and make it all perfect.This hotel does that and a bit more.
The decor has a bright, summery and eclectic feeling with a waterfall that you look out from the bar.The combination of this and friendly front desk people makes you look forward to comming back at the end of the day. Apart from this a restaurant in the hotel offers healthy choices, 24 hours fitness centre, free parking & 3 elevators (they are in handy when you are in a rush).
Due to the proximity to energy corridor there are a lot of businesses around and restaurant. This also keeps the occupancy and rates high. I paid $349 a night when Houston had a few conventions in town.What I disliked is that hotel charging. 9.95 for WiFi on top of the prices. Reason why I dont believe you get best bang for buck.

To sum up a wonderful place if you have unlimited budget.

This hotel is located off 1-10 and Katy. The hotel is in the middle of great dining, shopping and just a short trip to downtown Houston. The hotel lobby is modern, chick and very clean, The staff is friendly and willing to accommodate guest. The rooms are large, very clean and decorative. We stayed on the concierge level and had a wonderful breakfast and nice hors d'oeuvres in the evening. I personally love clean hotels. I felt like I could relax, sleep and enjoy my stay knowing this Marriott cared about their customers. If I have to return to this Houston I would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Stayed on the concierge level and enjoyed every minute

This hotel is only three years old which is definitely a positive. This is a great place to stay if conducting business off Route 10 and there are plenty of restaurants close by. The rooms were just fine and typical for a Marriott. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. No charge for parking which is always a plus. Starbucks coffee is served in the main area but disappointingly not in the concierge lounge where other Marriott concierge lounges do. This is a business hotel and not a family one. I would suggest requesting a room away from the freeway for noise and view.

In town for a state tournament with the hubs and kids, plus extended family and a TON of other groups just like ours. Ran into an issue right off with a king bed for 4 people. Was told there were not rooms available and no way to fix it. Can't understand how they can't tell there are 4 people in a room and how are we supposed to share a king bed. Turns out the restaurant manager took pity and comped us breakfast - which was good since I was not impressed with the $14 executive bkfst.
Also was disappointed with the "Starbucks" they claim to have in the hotel lobby bar. Not sure about cocktails, but they made the worst capuccino.
One great thing about this hotel is the pool area. There is an amazing firepit with cushy outdoor furniture and a great spot under an arbor. didn't actually try the pool, but it looked nice. The gym was great with fresh whole fruit and an entire circuit of machines available.
Nice hotel, but the lobby is super small for a full-service Marriott. I expected more from this usually impeccable brand.

We took advantage of a deal on the Living Social website for a stay at this hotel. The property is nice, very clean, updated fixtures and very well lighted. The room was nice, but there was no microwave, the iron was cracked, only one washcloth and there was no extra roll of bathroom tissue. Asked twice for another roll of tissue and a washcloth and they never came despite telling me they would be "right up". The bed was large and comfortable, nice linens and the room was very clean. The Living Social deal included breakfast for 2, but I don't think the regular room rate includes breakfast, I would say it's expensive as the bill would have been $28 for two of us for the breakfast buffet which included eggs to order, bacon, sausage, waffles, biscuits and gravy, potatoes, sauteed vegetables, oatmeal then add the items you would find at a continental breakfast; very good breakfast, but $14 each seems a little pricey for the meal. I enjoyed the visit, but nothing stands out about this hotel, it's a place to lay your head. I'd recommend this hotel if you had business to attend nearby or as a commuter stop.
