We stayed here three nights with our two kids (7 and 10 years old) in March 2014 for Spring Break. The Metro Rail station is right in front of the hotel and provides easy access to the Museum District, Houston Zoo, and even the Downtown Aquarium. We stayed in room with two doubles beds. The beds were very comfortable, but were smaller than what we are used to, so keep this in mind if you are booking for a family. The rooms are very standard and somewhat dated. Our room had a small fridge and we were able to get a microwave, too. I was happy the TV's allowed for easy connections (RCA, VGA, and HDMI) through a separate box. The hotel has an indoor pool and hot tub. Towels are provided. The kids enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed the hot tub. Another reviewer though the pool was not clean. The water seemed clean to me, but it is a white vinyl/plastic pool and has staining around the waterline area. They should make an effort to clean this up. The service at the front desk was very good. The valet parking service was hit-or-miss during our stay. They allowed us to go to our cars for items when necessary; this was helpful. I guess I am not a big fan of paying $23 for valet and then having to tip on top of that every time I get my car or get the keys to go to my car. Next time, I would chose the self park for $9. I would not rely on the free shuttle service because it is subject to availability, of course. Overall, we liked this hotel.
