I had the opportunity to stay here for three nights recently and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who has occasion to stay in Downtown Houston.
Staff: Everyone I met was very friendly. Front desk staff was courteous and efficient. Check in and checkout were both a breeze. Staff in the restaurant was also very warm and open.
Facilities: Everything was clean and attractive. Common areas were modern and tidy. I didn’t make it to the gym so I can’t rate that. My room was spotless except for a stain on the carpet (not made by me). Beds were super comfortable. The room had a microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator, which was much appreciated.
Highlights: Location is perfect if you’re doing something at convention center…or Toyota Center…or Minute Maid field. It’s really centrally located if you need to be in the heart of downtown. Also, I loved the voice in the elevator. A woman’s voice, vaguely British accent (actually sounded like a friend of mine from South Africa), very cool. I loved it when I got in to go to the lobby and the voice would say “Going down.”
Areas for improvement: To be honest, I can’t think of anything.
Overall impression: Loved it. If I come back to Houston, this will be where I stay.
Nearby transportation: Light rail is several blocks away. Houston is not a very mass transit friendly city unless you are into riding buses.
