I was in Houston to on business purposes and want to share impressions about my week stay at Westin Oaks Hotel. The apartment was booked in advance by the company I work for that is why I did not pay for it.
The room as well as my queen-size bed was really huge (especially in comparison with normal rooms in most European hotels). It was well-furnished and fully equipped with everything necessary (personal care facilities, safe box, and bathrobe). I was pleased to find a hair-dryer, a coffee-machine and an iron together with the ironing board (the last one was especially helpful taking into account that in order to use electric staff taken from Russia I needed an adaptor) in my room. But nothing is ideal: polyester bed linen was very uncomfortable to sleep on.
Internet access is worth mentioning. The cost of wireless access was extraordinary there: almost 10 dollars per day. What is more, unfortunately I had a problem connecting it. Even though I asked IT-specialist in the hotel for help due to the fact that Internet Explorer on my tablet could not open Westin Oaks web page correctly I failed to connect to their Wi-Fi in my room. However, free Wi-Fi was available in the lobby of the hotel.
The administrators (receptionists) were corteous and helpful. One of them helped me to measure the weight of my suitcases in order to check whether I am within the limit set by the airline. Taxi drivers are also always on spot (just in front of the hotel) so it takes just a few minutes to find a car.
