The hotel is like brand new. It looks really nice. The staff are very nice and are jumping when you come through the door. The rooms were quite and the mattrices were good. Breakfast was standard frozen eggs and sausage microwaved, so we ate elsewhere. The manager seems to have the new car syndrome, like when someone buys a new car they park way out so it will get no dents. While I was checking in the person at the desk told me that the manager would only allow bottled water at the pool and he was a real stickler about that. I'm in my mid 50's, so I"m far from being a party animal; however, I might like to drink a coke or a beer or two at the pool at night if I want to. I can understand no bottles, but the bottled water is rediculous. I then took a look at the pool. There are two cranes to lift disabled people into the water. I commend Farefield for helping out the disabled, but two cranes are a bit much. I've never seen anyone use them before. However, the wierd thing is again the Manager trying to make it perfect. He had some canvas covers over both of them. Other Fairfields leave them uncovered and it is no big deal. The canvas covers were obnixious and made a big eye sore at the pool. I guess the manager didn't want any rain or sun to touch his cranes. Next, the pool has a cosmetic small pool next to the main pool to give a small water fall. It looks pretty nice, but there is an abnoxious sign next to it saying "KEEP OUT". I doubt that anyone could get to it anyway, but it was so unfriendly it was totally wierd. You are walking on egg shells around the pool. The manager needs to tone it down and make the place friendly and get over the new car syndrom. People are there to relax. It's the Woodlands so I doubt there are a bunch of party animals trashing the hotel with drings and climbing where clearly where you should not be. . Also, I would not say it has a good location. To get to decent restaurants you have to go a couple of exits north on I 45. You can get get to the Woodlands mall from there and it is so busy it is a zoo. There is really nothing what I would consider close to the hotel. I has a lousy location. When your tired you want someting close where you don't have to fight traffic to get to a restaurant.
