Though the hotel sits alongside a highway, there are great restaurants within walking distance, I highly recommend The Hobbit Cafe. But more than food the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is welcoming and extremely helpful and warm. Highly recommended.

I think it would be hard to beat the Crowne Plaza River Oaks. Mandy and Jorge Fuenes are a couple of my personal favorites but the service doesn't stop here. The food is always very good. I always eat breakfast and dinner here and it is always good. The River Oaks Crowne Plaza is also near a lot of great other food options. Houstons, Sushi, Twin Peaks, House of Pies, etc. The Wednesday evening priority club appreciation get to together is always excellent, Mandy really does a great job. My project is about to end but I will always remember the service we have received here. My family will definitely be staying here in the future.

Room Tip: I have never had a bad room here.

we stay here all the time. My husband is a patient at M D Anderson and they always take excellent care of us. They go out of their way to help us. Grady at the front desk is extremely helpful as is Carlos in the bar. The priority club rewards program is excellent as well. They offer a medical rate as well.

The River Oaks Crowne Plaza is located within walking distance of a number of great restaurants and other entertainment options. The hotel restaurant is also a good option for food, I really like their buffet breakfast with made to order omelets. Goode's barbecue is a good local eatery along with the Hobbit Cafe, both within a five to ten minute walk. I recommend this hotel for a good night sleep and fun time.
