Enjoyed it
I enjoyed my stay here, though my colleague had a noisy room on the main road (room 924). I had room 919 which was opposite. You could hear the music from the outdoor bar when it was open but this didn't go on late at all. The food and drinks available were nice. The coffe shop was much appreciated in the mornings! Checking in and out was easy. The valet worked well though overpriced. We ended up using a car park just down the road. I would stay here again.

Good hotel, great bar
Great base for downtown Houston, loved Part and Parcel bar and the live music. Room was good but bathroom was very small. Very friendly check in and the free shuttle service was great to get to Minute Maid Park, savednus getting an Uber!

Great looking lobby and very nice looking rooms. If you’re working in downtown Houston it’s perfect. Valet is reasonable at $21 but there were no other parking options.
