“Prototype Embassy Suites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This was the best Embassy suites I have ever stayed at. It is a prototype hotel that was built totally environmentally friendly, green, and clean. As with all of the Embassy suites line, the suites were spacious and had convenient touches like a mini-fridge and microwave. The decor is new and colorful. The FREE breakfast and manager's receptions cant be beat, especially when traveling with kids! The hotel is located near a ton of Houston's attractions: Minute Maid Park, Toyota Center, Discovery Green, etc.

The only downside for us was valet parking at $28/night. I have paid more elsewhere, but it seemed a bit steep. Plus, some of the valet staff could use a course in hospitality . My car smelled like someone smoked in it and they never once helped with the door.

All other services were excellent.

I stayed here awhile back for a family trip and received horrible service upon checkin by a caucasian front desk receptionist by the name Katie. I asked her for some suggestions of restaurants to eat at and she simply said to walk two blocks and I would find restaurants. She did not seemed interested in helping me with my needs and she looked as though she was being bothered. As a guest we want to feel the human touch element and receive hospitality, not just service. She was not friendly at all upon my arrival and she should not be in the hospitality industry due to her lack of sincere warmth and kindness. She should be an accountant where she does not have to be around people.

The Embassy Suites in Downtown Houston is definitely a great place. Having stayed in all the hotels in the downtown area this is definitely my top pick. The rooms are exceptional, the service is great and the complimentary breakfast is definitely worth it!

Fantastic stay, staff very courteous and helpful. stayed with my daughter to attend a concert at the toyota center. Felt very safe in the area and an easy walk to surrounding venues. The map makes it look very spread out but everything was very close. I would stay here again.

Spacious suite - plenty of room to work, relax, etc. in a great location in downtown Houston at a very reasonable price for the quality and convenience. Easy walking distance to good restaurants, sports venues, many businesses, etc. Reasonable cab ride from Hobby Airport. Highly recommend!

If you want the luxuries and accomodations of a large hotel, but to be treated as a guest of a botique hotel...this is for you. This Embassy is large enough to be considered a big hotel, but the staff will remember you and treat you like it's home. Good food, within walking distance of a lovely, large park and shopping.

Really solid Embassy Suites hotel with a bit of modern decor to go along with high quality rooms, work out area, and pool. Definitely would stay here again if I can get the price in check - somewhat pricey as it is a quality product offering. Should not be disappointed unless you are a very high-end traveler (i.e. four seasons, etc.)
