Stayed 3 night in this hotel on business so didn't get to experience the health club, pool, spa etc however the hotel itself is lovely.
On arrival the reception is very impressive with a large fireplace and faux hunting lodge style. Reception staff very friendly.
I had a room on the Concierge level which was a good size with large bed, sitting area, desk area and bathroom stocked with L'Occitane products. The bathroom was a little small but no big deal.
There is a turndown service which is a nice touch as well as newspaper delivered to the room daily.
The concierge level also has a business suite with complimentary breakfast and evening snacks as well as computers etc. The whole hotel has free wifi.
I tried room service once which was very tasty. Breakfast down in the dining room is a la carte and extremely good.
Quite surprisingly for the USA parking is charged quite steeply, $15 per night if you park yourself, or $30 by valet. This struck me as a bit cheeky, and something that should be free for paying hotel guests. Especially in a city like Houston where you don't have much choice BUT to drive.
Otherwise great hotel, lovely grounds, seemed like a good location, not far from the Galleria area and very friendly staff.
