We had been planning a stop in Houston for a few days during our annual baseball vacation and was glad when the Westin became available. I had been at this hotel before but never had the chance to stay here. The check in process was smooth and efficient. We always try and reserve a 2 bedroom suite or a suite with a separate bedroom and living room with a sofa bed. The Westin did not disappoint with its 1 bedroom suite!! The suite was very spacious with a very nice sized living room with a sofa bed, an nice easy chair, wet bar with a medium size fridge and TV on a low dresser with plenty of space. The bedroom included a king size bed, 2nd LCD TV on a medium height dresser, also with plenty of drawer space, a desk and chair and 2 nightstands, a closet was also in the bedroom. One of the best features of the room was the very spacious bathroom with double sink vanity that also included a low vanity for my friend to sit and do her hair and makeup after her shower. The toilet was in a separate room in the bathroom. The showerhead was like being in the rain, very nice and soothing and also with a spray wand on a flexible hose. As my friend said, "great bathroom"!!! The room was extremely comfortable and at night we were able to close the bedroom door so we each had our own privacy. The location of the hotel was the main reason for our choice, since it is directly across the street from Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros. The restaurant served a very nice breakfast buffet, and the bar was a nice place to unwind at the end of the day. Even though the hotel is located in downtown Houston its location provided a great stepping off point for our different sightseeing excursions. I would gladly recommend this hotel for anyone traveling to Houston!!
