I was in Houston on business and stayed there for 3 nights in early March, 2008. The room I was in on the 4th floor was fairly typical in terms of layout except for the size - it was bigger than similar class hotels.
I appreciated the free internet. They have wireless and wired but you will need to bring your own cable or buy it from the front desk ($10).
Another nice feature is the breakfast which is a bit better than some free continental breakfasts including some hot items.
My biggest complaint was that the location is a few blocks away from the main downtown area and there are no nearby places to eat. I got in at supper time and had to call for delivery from a pizza place nearby that had a pretty limited menu.
The indoor pool is quite small and is located right next to a sitting area in the lobby so unless you want to be on display while you swim, it's not really useful.
If I go back to Houston, I'll probably opt for a hotel in the downtown core, and one that has an in-house restaurant.
