I normally choose to stay here when I travel to Houston for business.In short, the rooms are very nice, as are the grounds, pool area, proximity to a beautiful park where there are plentiful walking/running trails. They also have a nice casual bar inside which is very good as is their main restaurant. I would say the only thing lacking are breakfast options on the go.

Thanks so much for your comments! We are running an Olympic promotion in the bar for the next two weeks so come back and enjoy! Thanks for your feedback about breakfast on the go, I will look for additional options for our coffee shop, Morsels.

I have stayed at this hotel on several occassions for business. It is conveniently located near the Galleria area, off major streets which can be filled with traffic, yet the hotel is set off the main road in a secluded park like setting amongst large trees. Once on the property, it is hard to tell you are in the middle of a busy part of Houston. It is a beautiful setting. The hotel is very clean, with modern updates. The staff is very friendly, and the rooms are well appointed. Many restaurants and shops are close to the hotel. It is a great choice if you need to stay in the Galleria area.

Every staff member is there for just one thing: to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The hotel is lovely with spaces for larger groups to gather and intimate little nooks for quiet conversation. Rooms are nicely appointed...a good size....very well cared for. The Cafe was very nice with a good menu and attentive staff. The children loved the two pools! We so enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend it.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Omni Houston Resort during the weekend 7/20/12 to 7/23/12 as a weekend staycation, since I am working in Houston for the summer while he is in Baton Rouge. The lobby and pool are gorgeous and relaxing. The room was decorated very nicely with very modern touches, but the bathroom was a little rough around the edges. The Omni indicated they were "pet friendly" so we brought our two corgis with us, which was only an extra $50 for our stay. Once entering our room, I called and asked if they had dog beds and they said they would deliver some. We waited 1.5 hours and never received anything, so we left for dinner. It was kind of awkward walking the dogs through the lobby to get to the dog walk at the back of the resort property, as there were no other exits to use, and there were crowds of people present for events. I recommend leaving your pets at home if you are considering bringing them, just to avoid the stares. I signed up for the Omni Guest Loyalty program and received free wi-fi access and complimentary coffee delivered to the room every morning, which was a nice touch. You can only sign up for this by booking through the hotel. Also, use the "white lot" self-parking garage at the back of the hotel for free parking-- pull a parking ticket and validate it at the hotel front desk before leaving the garage. They will charge you $24 for valet and $15/day for any other parking. Check out the indoor whirlpool also, which is hidden down a stairway to your right as you exit the lobby and enter the pool patio area.

Thanks for your great comments about our property. Sorry for the delay in delivery of the items you requested, we are normally a lot faster. Our Select Guest program has so many amenities!! Our complimentary parking lot is close to the hotel and worth the short walk.

We like this hotel because it offers the best of two worlds -- upscale comfort in a semi-secluded, park-like setting but easy access (by car, of course) to all the shops and restaurants located in the nearby and more heavily-congested Galleria area. The hotel cannot be described as new but it is well-maintained and conveys a sense of luxury without being overly pretentious. The guestrooms are especially comfortable and surprisingly large. Among items that are of some concern: slightly outdated bathrooms; slow pool service; and parking rates that are strangely high for a hotel that sits alone on a large parcel of land. Nevertheless, when it is all said and done, we’ll be back to indulge in the pleasures of both worlds that this hotel has to offer.

Thanks for the kind words and feedback. We continue to add more to our pool experience, and we continue to focus on our speed of service. We have 3 options for parking, valet, self parking across the street from the hotel, and complimentary parking just behind the hotel.

I recently spent an exemplary weekend at this Omni Hotel as a wedding guest. It was a true delight! The rooms were just as one would hope at an Omni. The staff was attentive but not hovering and the facilities were A+. The reception was the finest I've ever attended and I've been to plenty! I'm certain it ran in $$$$$'s but it was all a bride could wish for in her dreams. The food was exceptional and original. I'll return to this location when in Houston for a special treat. It exceeded my expectations. Well done!

Room Tip: Go up! High is a good thing...
