The Hilton Houston Americas is an extraordinarty hotel. It is the best Hilton brand property I have ever stayed at. The hotel is giagantic and spacious. The rooms are modern and masculine. The bed was incredible. The staff was always pleasant and helpful. Prices are in keeping with a good hotel so this is not a bargain lovers dream, unless you come when a conference or sporting event is not in downtown Houston.
The pool is the best I have ever seen in any hotel, period. A real lap pool with a hot tub that actually fits the number of guests who might use it in a hotel of this size. The gym is amongst the best. The outside roof desk an incredible ammenity. And the in-house spa has reasonable prices, with a $10 day pass to use the steam roon, locker room, and sauna, an incredible value.
One sore point: the UPS branded business center charges exorbanent prices for incoming packages, is ineffenciently set up, and has staff members who are cheerful but who do not understand the needs of a buisiness traveler. I was called to say a package was ready for pick up only to be told that packages are stored in an off site area until the guest comes in to retrieve them. Shocked, I waited 20 minutes for my box to be brought up from somewhere I was told over and over again I was not allowed to go to if I wanted to get the box myself. When the box arrived the clerk said because of all of my questions she was charging me $25 instead of the usual $12. Shocked again, I had no choice but to pay the fee as the conference I was attending was starting in 10 minutes. I would have sent my packages to the convention center directly had I known that the system in the buisness center was so time consuming.
Aside from the business center,which I hope management fixes to be a fully functioning one where packages are actually stored on site for quick retrieval, this is a Hilton of distinction and worth staying at.
