This hotel is located in a very posh, upscale part of Houston. Lots of shopping and dining options everywhere. Traffic was very heavy because of a the nearby Mall (The Galleria ) and all of the dining options. The hotel is of course built on the standard Embassy format - nice front entry, marble floors at the front desk with inviting sitting areas nearby, rooms are built around a tropical themed atrium. We have stayed at 8 others and this one was the newest and the best decorated. From 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm each day they put on a managers special which consist of chips/dip or pop corn and all the beer/ wine/ soda and fine liquor you would like to drink. The only negative I found with this is that they dont offer enough to make it enticing for the kids to come down. The rooms are nicely decorated, they consist of a livingroom (with sofa bed)/dining area, a small bar/fridge area, a decent sized room with double beds ( very few available ) or king option. The only negative about the room is the small bathroom which does not have seperate access from the bedroom and the living area. The cooked to order breakfast was one of the worse we have ever eaten at an embassy suites. The cooks were not very energetic or overly friendly and they did not poccess that down home cooking skill. Overall this was a very nice hotel in which we wish we could have spent more time using its emenities ( at football game ). We will stay here from now on when coming to Houston because it is a solid value - you get what you pay for.
