Medical trip to Houston

I have been going to Houston for many years for medical treatment. I had never stayed at the Best Western Plaza. I will go there from now on. It was perfect!

Medical trip

Very close to the medical center. Great value for your buck if you plan to visit the medical facilities across the street. The rooms are generally clean and have a small fridge and a microwave. There is a small fitness center/indoor pool on the ground floor. The breakfast is OK if you are just looking for a quick bite before you start your day.

useful for med center

Needed to stay near the med center for an interview so it was very handy. A little overpriced for the quality but I guess that goes with convenience.

Houston trip

Hotel was relatively easy to find from the airport. Beautifully appointed, clean and great value for the price. Close to the many medical facilities. Also close to the museum district which made for pleasant diversions.

Not very good

I checked in on Friday and the staff was very friendly. There are not many food places around the hotel. It location is downtown across the street from a lot of hotels. On Sunday the toilet started having problems as I was checking out I just told them about it.

Conference Stay

The hotel is pretty good for a Best Western -- trying to be more hotel than motel. The room was large and comfortable for a week's stay. A breakfast buffet was available, and it had a variety of food, but none of it exactly gourmet. I didn't have time to try the pool or exercise room. The bed was very comfortable, and it was convenient to have a frig in the room.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

It's a long walk three blocks up Main and then west on University to "Rice Village" which has a lot of shops and restaurants. There's a set of cafes and coffee places one block east on Fannin Street around the medical center.

condo shopping

We had no problems at all. The A/C is pretty noisy but I think that is standard no matter where you stay. I like the no fee internet and parking as we had to have a car, and you can't go wrong with free breakfast.
