“Hilton in great location, almost”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

The Hilton Hotel in Houston located near the George R Brown convention center is a classic upscale Hilton Hotel. The convention facilities within the hotel are first class. The hotel has a very modern look and the rooms are clean, well-kept, and well-equipped.

My main complaint about the hotel is the availability of good restaurants within the hotel. The Café is the only full service restaurant within the hotel. Its menu is rather limited and its setting is characteristic European-style, crowd as many in as you can. The long bench seating, where you will be seating within two feet of someone you don't know, is very uncomfortable. By all means never order their vegetable soup! Unfortunately there are a few restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and the ones that are close are very overpriced.

Standard downtown Hilton-convention center hotel. Room was small but clean and well thought-out. Rainbird-like showerhead a nice touch. King bed comfortable, but massive European-style comforter made sleeping hot, even with aircon up. Germans love it...you sweat under the comforter and open the window for fresh air. Whoever thought it, instead of the standard top sheet/blanket/bedspread, was a good idea for subtropical Houston, needs a wake-up call. Quiet room, even across from elevators.

Bridge to convention center. Well-functioning front desk and Executive suite staff. First time I've seen recycling trash bin in a hotel room: way to go, Hilton. Executive club is allowed to become a nursery school with kids running and screaming. Restaurant a disaster (see separate review under Restaurants - Hilton Americas Cafe).

Green Features: Small recycling bin in room a notable first, accepting plastic, metal, and paper.

We actually live in Houston, but decided to get a room at the last moment to go to
comicpalooza. We figured it would be easier for costume changes and for late night socializing.. From Sydney at the front dest to Ben the bellman, Michael a the hotel bar and all the rest of the staff, they couldn't have been nicer to us. Our experience was one of the best that we have ever had at a hotel. The management needs to be applauded, you have a wonderful staff! Thank you.. Debi

Room Tip: We were on the executive level, and it was very nice.

Green Features: I love the fact they have separated bins in the room for recycling.

Huge hotel, definitely geared for a convention-sized crowd, beautifully appointed international flavor appearance to lobby. Most comfortable beds I have EVER slept in a hotel. Loved the desk area design in my regular 2-queen room - there was space for 3-4 people to work at this space. The 23rd floor 3-lane lap pool and attached spacious balcony boasted incredible views of Houston - what a way to start my day! Simple, easy access to convention center. I attended a function in the main ballroom which was gorgeous and the food was delicious. My 4-star Service rating is due to the looonnng lines to check-in, the long wait for valet (which is very expensive) and the hotel's inability to get my email address right so I would have received a copy of my reservation confirmation and my hotel bill! But I would definitely stay here again on my next downtown Houston visit.

I stayed at the Hilton for a company event. The hotel looks to be freshly remodeled, at least the room I was in and the common areas. I have stayed there on a couple of different occasions and all stays have been nice. This time, the service exceeded my expectations. Everyone was extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating! I have to say, the service was better than the Four Seasons that I stayed at last month. Go Hilton! The hotel is located within walking distance of some really cool shopping and eating places - AND, it is right across the street from Discovery Green and the Toyota Center!

Came here to conclude a long weekend in Houston. I had stayed at another property for the first two nights and finished my trip with a stay here at the Hilton. First impressions: the hotel is right next to the convention center and the structure looks huge. The car valet was quick and friendly. The lobby was immense and very attractive. The front desk was courteous and offered me an available room even though I had arrived early.

The hotel is huge, but it feels well run and organized. The public spaces are very well placed. The bar and restaurant are open to the lobby, with a coffee/snack bar in the lobby as well, it was very comfortable to move around in these public spaces and people watch.

Even the chamber maids were very friendly (don't forget to tip your chamber maid!).

The bedding was wonderful, nicer than the 5 star hotel that I stayed at earlier in my visit. Pillows were down, duvet consisting of bedding sheets covered the comforter (meaning that it gets washed). And the price is extremely reasonable for what you're getting (comparing these rates to the Hilton in Austin).

I will plan another weekend getaway to Houston just to have the pleasure of staying here again.

Stayed here for business. My room on the 8th fl around the corner of the west elevators was convenient and quiet. The bed was incredibly comfortable! The hotel is very nice and modern looking. The concierge had great ideas for dinner that were walkable or a short cab ride away. The baseball stadium and basketball arena are a short walk away. Discovery Green park across the street is a good place for a walk or a run. This hotel is connected to the convention center via a walkway. If I were attending a conference there this would be a perfect hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors around the corner from the west elevators are quiet.
