My recent stay (June 19-21) at the Hilton Houston Plaza was a very good experience. I wasn't sure what to expect after reading several reviews about the rooms needing an update. I'm a very picky person, and with the exception of the wallpaper in the bathroom, the room was nicely updated, down to the granite counters in the bath. Nice carpet, nice bath (except for the wallpaper), very good mattress, and great TV. I will say, my room overlooked the pool area, which is still carpeted in something that looked like late 70's Astroturf, but that was not a part of my stay. I ordered room service one night, and was pleasantly surprised. Service and food both very good. I experienced no noise issues. The only complaint I had was with the shuttle.... I was there for a seminar at MD Anderson, and we finished about 6:15 on Thursday. One of our group called the hotel, and we were told we'd be part of the 6:30 pickup. We were only about a 5-10 minute ride from the hotel, but no shuttle by 6:50. After a long day, I was ready to be back to my room, so I just walked and still got back 10 minutes before those who waited for the shuttle. Very hot, humid walk in Houston! I was told the shuttle had several drop off's, which made it late, but it would have been nice to have been informed of that up front, and I would have walked back 30 minutes earlier. This aside, I would definitely return to this hotel.
