“Great hotel near Minute Maid Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Great hotel w/ breakfast & evening reception & staff was great. The valet gave us a ride to the Ball Park and we were close enough to walk back. The hotel was 100 yards from a great Hilton w/ a great classic hotel bar that was great for meeting friends.

Here are a few of the things that impressed me about this hotel:

Very clean
Convenient downtown hotel
Large suite style rooms that include a nice sized sitting room
Great for sports fans - between Minute Maid Park (Houston Astros baseball) and the Toyota Center (Houston Rockets basketball)
Friendly Service
Discovery Green Park next door has many cool activities and great for working out

I would definitely stay here again. Great for business travel or for visitors to the Houston area.

Everyone on the staff were pleasant especially the front desk. I also like the different types of lighting that were available. The one negative that I can think of when you were at bar, they should be able to offer some kind of food to order.

This may be the best hotel I've stayed in. During a recent trip to Houston, I stayed in three hotels, all for around the same price. In fact, this one was the least expensive, unless you count parking. And, yet, this one was by far the nicest. It was well put together, furnishings were great, things were in great condition, and the furniture was very comfortable. The staff was excellent - the valet even asked about my mom who was in the hospital. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: My room was on the fourth floor and was great!

We decided to do a weekend getaway with our kids and this hotel was perfect. The pool is outdoors, but heated and it was still a nice temperature when it was 100 degrees outside as well as during the cooler evenings - they must adjust it for the time of day. The breakfast buffet is awesome with lots of options and has soft drinks as well - a nice bonus for my husband. We stayed in a king bed room with a pullout couch. The couch is L-shaped so we had one kid on the pullout version of the sofa and then put pillows as a buffer for another kid to sleep on the other portion of the sofa. Perfect. You are right there at a park with a splash pad, playground for all ages (including tiny slides for the smallest of kids), restaurants, right off the metro line for access to musuems, etc.. However, you can always ask the hotel to drive you to nearby attractions.

You will need to rent a car or get a taxi to take you to Kemah Boardwark and NASA. Those locations are roughly 30 - 40 min. away.

I would definitely choose this hotel again if we decide to do another weekend getaway in Houston because we were not able to visit everything on our CityPass, which will need to be repurchased, but the value is great if only going to a couple places anyways.

Oh! I should also mention the staff. Incredibly friendly and helpful.

Our friends selected this hotel for our weekend trip to Houston to attend baseball games at Minute Maid Park. My husband and I had previously stayed at another hotel in the area, but went with the crowd this time and were not disappointed. The two-room suite is very spacious and comfortable with separate living area and bedroom. The decor throughout the hotel appears to be fairly new and is pleasing (has a bit of a retro vibe). The pool area was clean and inviting. We took advantage of the complimentary breakfast and cocktail reception and, except for slow service during peak times, were very pleased. WiFi worked great. The hotel offers valet parking, but the cost to park in nearby lots is cheaper and on-street parking is free from 6pm to 7am. Location is convenient to Minute Maid Park, Toyota Convention center, and Discovery Park. Houston Metro Rail station is about 15 minute walk from hotel. Looking forward to our next stay!

At check in they upgraded us to a suite on one of the top floors with a great view. After checking out, my fiancée thought she left her fitbit in the room. When I called the desk, the desk man personally went up and checked for me. The room was great, too: good bed, great shower. Nice free breakfast.
