You could be forgiven for thinking you weren't in Houston as you drive through the entry gates towards the hotel. Plush greenery on both sides of the road with old established trees all around. A fairly slick operation for valet parking at the entrance or you can elect to self park. I have been to this hotel several times now and find the service consistently good and check in has been no exception; quick, efficient and polite.
Rooms are reasonably large and comfortable, but like the bathrooms they are getting a little dated, though that is not to detract from the whole ambience of the place. This is a top class hotel and it exudes a warm and clubby feel.
There are two outdoor swimming pools; one for the more serious swimmers and a free form pool for just chilling in and around. There is also an indoor pool. The gym is simply the best I have seen in a hotel - huge with lots of equipment and high class facilities.
The hotel restaurant is good too, the food quality is high and the service is very professional. The bar has a great atmosphere and bar staff good fun.
The Hotel is well positioned for the downtown Galleria shopping area and close to roads into the Business District
In summary a very good hotel at the best I have stayed in around the Houston Area
