The hotel wasn't bad in itself. I stayed on the third floor, with a nice view of downtown Houston and the highway in the distance. My door was facing the atrium of the hotel with a chlorinated pool of water and two live swans swimming all day and all night. They had no access to the outside, no green grass, no sunshine. It was very sad to observe these two magnificent birds, now restricted to a small pool of water in a hotel. The hotel served nice breakfast, and people were looking at the swans, children wanting to throw them food, etc...during breakfast.
The management of the hotel should consider making accommodations for the swans to either see some outdoor light or get them rehabilitated in a nature preserve someplace. They are gorgeous, but they are indoors and it makes an animal lover sad to observe this.
