The Hilton Houston Plaza Medical Center has many plusses. The main plus was the very nice, very accommodating staff. I especially want to mention Angelica, who was just terrific. She runs the bar beautifully, takes extra care, and goes the extra mile in helping out guests. The hotel is located very, very close to a Metro station, which provides you with easy access to may sites, including the museum district (if you are not staying in the area for medical purposes, you will likely want to board the train to go to various places, as there is little to do or see in the immediate area). It has a nice pool. My regular room (not suite) was big, clean, and comfy. As some reviews stated, you can sometimes hear noise outside your room, but the people next to me were very quiet. Finally, I paid extra to get breakfast included and was not disappointed! An excellent and plentiful breakfast buffet is offered--eggs, bacon, sausage, smoked salmon, potatoes, crepes, parfaits, fruit, pastries, juice, coffee, tea, and more.
If you fly into Bush International, take a shuttle bus in, as taxis from the airport into the city really add up (it's quite a hike). Or, arrange for car service, which, like New York city car service, is cheaper than a cab.
