“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

I like everything about this hotel. I was really able to enjoy myself and be comfortable for the first time in years staying at a hotel. I will be going back to this hotel soon, we can't wait. I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Spent 3 days at this property in conjunction with our teams football game over the Labor Day weekend. Houston welcomed us with one of its hottest weekends this summer but couldn't put a damper on what turned out to be a great visit to all there is to enjoy in the surrounding downtown area. We always appreciate the additional perks offered by Embassy from their full complimentary breakfast to the wonderful evening Happy Hour. This is an award winning property and it shows. The staff was very courteous from the valet to the desk personnel, from the restaurant staff to he housekeeping crew, all seemed happy and pleased to see that whatever was needed or asked about was handled to our satisfaction.

There is anything you could want within easy walking distance of the hotel from nightlife to any type of dining you could possibly imagine. Even shopping and bowling were within 1-2 blocks from the property as well as a very large scenic park with plenty of green space and even a small lake for strolling around or even canoe and kayak rentals.

As for the property itself, everything was in top notch shape. The room decor was very modern and well maintained. We always love the roomy suites and especially enjoyed the large bathroom with what really is a nice trend, an extremely large shower stall and no tub. The rooms were very quiet and even though the property was at full booking, there never seemed to be a crowd problem or excessive noise.

We used most all the facilities this property had to offer from valet to dining to pool and gym and had no problems anywhere. This visit was so enjoyable that we are planning a trip in the future just to visit and enjoy more that Houston has to offer and will return to this Embassy Suites.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the park.

Green Features: Seem to have a good recycling program in effect. The entire area for several blocks around the property is designated a Green Scene.

Got a room for Labor Day weekend. This hotel is barely three years old and is immaculate. We had a two room suite. The beds were very comfortable, perfect for our family of five (including three small children). The sofa mattress was a bit "springy" for an adult but tolerable for a child. The only other downside was that the bathroom has a sliding door and does not lock. Both of those were not enough to warrant downgrading my rating.

Social hour in the evening was plentiful with mixed drinks and a variety of buffet items. Breakfast was nice with cooked-to-order egg options as well as chef-made pancakes.

The pool was nice. Hot tub was HOT. Kids loved playing there whenever they had a free moment. I walked through the fitness center adjacent to the pool and found it to be equally immaculate, and the equipment appeared to be in good shape.

Staff was extreme friendly and responsive.

Location is perfect: 6 blocks from Minute Maid Park, right next to Discovery Green, one block from House of Blues.

Room Tip: Corner suites are slightly roomier at a decent price. Good for families.

clean colorful room, friendly staff, quick check-in process. hot tub and pool were clean. breakfast was amazing with lots of options. check out was quick and the evening reception was very very nice. property was in great shape. only downside was i woke up with a boot on my car even though i had a valid parking sticker in my dashboard. took 30 mins for someone to come take it off. that was my only inconvenience, and was of no fault to the hotel

This is a fairly new Embassy in the best spot downtown. One block from the convention center, stadiums, many of the new office towers, etc. It is my second stay and I will return. Only negative is the $28 parking fee (valet) if you don't want to park on the street. Other negative is the very limited unloading area. But once inside it is great. The rooms are fantastic and huge.

This is an absolutely beautiful hotel. Our stay was fantastic. Everything was within walking distance. I am so happy we chose this hotel. Take the time even if you live in Houston and spend time Downtown. You will love it. The breakfast is to die for also.

My family of ten thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. The pool was outside on top of the second floor. It was nice to sit outside and watch the kids swim. The breakfast is always a treat for everyone in our family. The Manager's happy hour is great to wind down each evening. There was a green area -park between the hotel and Minute Maid Park which gave the kids and adults some outside time. The hotel furnishes a car that will take you to areas close by for dinner. A great three day stay. Close by the Houston Convention Center if that is your reason for being in town.

Room Tip: Park side is a good view. We ad room over the pool.
