This was my first booking at this hotel. It was a pleasent experience for the entire stay. The only reason they didnt get the 5 stars is because our room had a foul smell (somewhat like urine). I checked the beds for stains but the smell came from the closet. It wasn't pleasent but it was bearable. I still bought some deodorizers.The staff was courteous and very nice. The breakfast bar was outstanding. We will definitely book here again on our next trip to Houston.

Stayed two nights at this Residence Inn. Great room with full kitchen. I really enjoyed the breakfast which was much more than just eggs and toast (the fresh fruit was a plus). We had the complimentary "dinner" on a Monday night, and the chicken, rice and fresh salad was good (big plus with free beer and wine). The pool area does not receive much sun, so we were able to use the pool at the Courtyard next door (very nice pool area). The exercise room was sufficient and clean. All staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful.

I've seen this complaint before and I will restate that we did not have an ice-maker in the freezer in our room, and there is no ice available anywhere in the hotel. We had to go to the Courtyard to get the ice!

The hotel is only 1.5 miles from Rice Village, where we visit often for dinner and shopping when we're in town. There is a Goode Seafood restaurant a short walk away. Only a 10 minute drive to MD Anderson.

Excellent stay for $98! We visit Houston 4 times annually, and this will be our new go-to hotel.

Stayed here in June 2014 for a few nights with friends. We had a 2 double bedroom booked and got complimentary upgraded to a suite which was very kind and much appreciated! Breakfast was nice and all staff were helpful and friendly. Nice establishment! Will stay again.

Nice hotel, great staff.
Room was clean.
One bedroom suite with full kitchen, large and 2 televisions.
Friday night room rate for 2 was $139
It should have been perfect.

Problem is NO ICE.
Within your room, there is a full refrigerator with ice-maker. Housekeeping MUST empty the ice bin from previous guest because MAYBE the previous guest poisoned the ice and no one wants you hurt. Therefore, the new guest only has about 7 small ice cubes available.
This would be fine if there were other ice machines at the end of the hall or even a main ice machine downstairs..... but no. There are no ice machines on the property.
It's Houston.
It's hot in the summer time.
We spent 30 minutes looking for the ice machine on various floors before we called the front desk and found out we have to go to the hotel NEXT DOOR to get ice.
Really?
To his credit, the front desk clerk, Thomas, went next door and brought us back a plastic sack of ice. He was embarrassed.
Thank heaven we traveled with our own tea/soft drinks/water.
Over 45 minutes to get something to drink at 10pm on a Friday night is inexcusable.
Just another example of someone at corporate making foolish decisions.

Drains run slowly but this can be fixed easily. Room was immaculate with a comfortable bed. No pillow for the fold out but the main bed had extra pillows so no problem.

Room Tip: Stay in the front. This hotel has a back building and it makes breakfast and other things inconveni...

I booked this hotel via an online website and got a great deal for last minute booking. For the price, the hotel was well worth it. First, it was located in the hear of West University with 2 minute access to the freeway and with 10 minutes of the Houston Galleria area. I loved that it offered free wifi, free parking and a free shuttle within 3 miles of the hotel. Not many hotels offer that these days. I would definitely recommend it and would stay there again myself. I also appreciated the fact that they allowed me to have a late check out with no extra cost.

Fit our needs for a weekend in Houston! Plenty of room with a kitchenette. Did not use pool or other things. It is very close to downtown and sports complexes. Would stay here again if needed room near these locations at a reasonable rate!

I stayed here for a week and it was a great hotel. The setup was great, rooms were standard size, the staff was awesome and the food they put out was really good as well. The only reason I left this hotel was to stay closer to my client and it was for convenience only. This hotel was closer the the downtown area and also closer to all the bars and restaurants.
