Your standard in-the-city high rise Marriot, but some extras. Pros: Every single employee was exceptionally pleasant, plenty of 'good mornings' and smiles. Check in and check out was speedy, friendly and efficient. Good check-in cookies. Room was fairly standard, but with some nice extra touches. Well furnished, comfortable, quiet, good tv, very good internet. The real highlight was the breakfast buffet, which was surprisingly good. This wasn't your usual hotel buffet--it had well above average choices in every category. Table service (juice, coffee, etc.) was friendly and efficient. Pool was clean but too cold to use.
Cons: The odd thing here was the location, which while only a couple of short blocks from the Galleria, was down a sort of alley behind a strip shopping center, and to the side of another hotel. We would never have found it without GPS. The other (minor) problem was that only one elevator was working, so the wait was a little too long at times.
Bottom line: This is a reasonably-priced, clean and comfortable place to stay in a great location. It is going to be my new place to stay when I have to be in Houston.
