I got this hotel on Hotwire for an excellent price. The hotel is fairly hidden and somewhat hard to find, but it has easy access to the highway and I never had a problem with traffic.
Rooms are spacious with a mini fridge, microwave, and 2 free bottles of water. Bathrooms have shampoo, conditioner, lotion, nail files, cotton balls, etc. They even had makeup remover wipes for women, which I really appreciated.
I didn't have any trouble with the free wifi. Check in was a breeze and they let me in my room 3 hours early. Work out room is decent - few cardio machines and free weights. Breakfast is your typical buffet - eggs, waffles, yogurt, fruit, coffee, etc. They had cookies daily at 4pm, a great business center in the lobby, and the staff was more than happy to answer any questions.
Free parking was also a plus, however it's outdoor parking outside the hotel (not covered) and I wouldn't leave any of my valuables in my car. The area can be a little sketchy, but that's just downtown Houston in general.
I travel to Houston 12-15 times a year for work and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
