Huge oil and gas convention filled all the hotels of any substance in Houston. For a GR Brown convention, you cannot beat this property. It's close to everything, has the walkway to the convention center, rooms are clean and spacious, restaurants and bars are service concious and clearly the staff is used to handling a full house.
The only downside was difficulty with valet parking...several times it was difficult to get in, and once in, getting the ticket from the attendant. It appeared there were some in experienced hands working this as traffic clogged at the entrance and there was a lot of discussion among staff trying to get it straightened out. It also appeared the taxi protocols were mixed up as people were taking cabs dropping off fares, while there were taxis that had been waiting fares lined up in the street. The problem was compounded by a steady rain, exactly the time when expertise and experience are needed.
Had not stayed here previously, but when returning next year for this convention, will definitely stay here. A quality experience and most convenient despite the minor parking hiccups. Recommended.
