Overall very good value for the money. In Houston for a quick business trip - I had a rental car and had a little trouble finding the hotel at night in this somewhat seedy part of downtown. The employees are engaged, attentive and worthy of a 5 state hotel. High quality (albeit small) breakfast buffet. What prevents me from rating this as a 5 star are a few little things: (1) no hand soap in the bathroom - I had to call down and then it was immediately brought up; (2) the sewer smell in the lobby; (3) valet parking ticket requested that I text them to get my car, but that sstem was not working; (4) minibar or ability to purchase snacks / candy in the lobby would be nice - this is not a neighborhood in which I would feel comfortable wandering outside and looking for an open convenience store after dark. Would stay there again for the right price, but all things being equal, will look for a hotel in a better neighborhood.
