Don't turn on the heater!

I stay there often. On two occasions including this stay, I turned on the heat and acrid smoke covered the room, my clothes, my eyes and nose. Seems like a bad systemic problem to have if you are catering to very sick people at Texas Medical Center. If the heat in Texas gets used so seldom that it builds up on soot and grime that then gets burned, the maintenance schedule for cleaning the heaters needs to change before it becomes a fire hazard. For me it was a definite lung hazard. Other than that, I've always ejoyed the hotel, the people, the location, and the lovely seating arrangements where us sick folks can sit and chat together.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the tour of the Medical Center while you are there. Really good. And catch the Light Rail just up the street to all the museums and the zoo...so close by. Also just north on Kirby is the quiant shopping at Rice Village. And the Galleria is't far away but does require a car. Also be sure to rind out what's at the Astrodome/Reliant Arena. Very close by and has lots of high end events.

Convenient & Clean

In town for a job interview. The hotel was perfect. Conveniently located just a few minutes from my destination yet access to everything else was quite easy, food, entertainment, etc. The best part about my stay was the complimentary breakfast which was much more than the usual continental bagels and coffee. Would definitely recommend to anyone in town for a short business stay.

I know this hotel since many years, it was renovated recently and overall has a good price-value ration. In addition it is at walking distance from MDAnderson and other medical centers
