Fabulous 8.6 From 699 reviews

Fair 4.0
Try somewhere else.
room smelled strongly of mold, asked for different room and that one was better. It just smelled of beer. Breakfast was poor. 1st 3 days no butter, had to wait until they went to store for milk. Food was dry and not hot- we went to grocery store and brought own food. Last day- 4:30 am we brought our bread and peanut butter to make toast. Turned on the light making toast. Security and manager showed up and said we were not allowed until 6:30 when open for breakfast. I explained we were leaving and using our food. They said camera would show we were there and they would get in trouble. Very Poor policy! Most hotels even have snack breakfasts made up to give for early appointments. Location was good and restaurants close. Had shuttle to hospital. Coffee was cold and said not remade after 7pm in lobby. . Not customer friendly. Needs attitude adjustment and better service. I would pay a bit more and stay elsewhere. Very Disappointed.

Good 6.0
Building shows its age despite the new, modern fixtures and cute design elements. Had difficulty with connecting my computer to the unsecured wifi network.

Great bar and bartender!
What a charming place to stay. I usually stay at Comfort Suites across the road, but this place has a full bar! Would love to stay here again!

Our go to hotel in Houston
Always stay there on our trips to Houston for medical appointments. Very convenient location to all our needs. Hotel staff is always very welcoming and helpful. Rooms very comfortable and clean. Parking lot well lit, always feel safe going in and out.

Very good 8.0
Took care of their customers
Hotel was very nice and trendy. Check in was fine. But our room had a horrible mildew smell. Went to the front desk and asked for another room and they took care of us. Got us another room with no smell. Breakfast was great. Started out rough but ended up being a good trip in the end.
