Old-style luxury and state-of-the-art technology converge at the recently-updated Courtyard Houston Downtown hotel just a 10-minute walk from the George R. Brown Convention Center. A true stand-out among downtown Houston hotels for our historical ambiance housed in the 1921 Humble Oil Building's neo-classical exterior with polished rose marble and original brass elevator doors. Guests enjoy modern perks such as property-wide, free WiFi, a media library and work pods as well as our interactive GoBoard to access the latest news, weather and airport conditions. The highlight of our lobby experience is The Bistro. Eat. Drink. Connect., which offers guests food and beverage selections in the morning and new dinner service. Our downtown Houston hotel is within walking distance or a free shuttle ride to Minute Maid Park, Convention Center and Toyota Center. A short ride on the Metro Light Rail takes you to NRG Park and the Museum District.

Quick 30th Birthday Day Getaway

Well when we arrived we were greeted by Houston in valet , very nice gentlemen but they all were great but his name is the one that stuck out ( by the way valet is the only parking options @ $30 a day). We were able to check in with no problems. When we got to our room it was clean, but we had a horrible view which was ok cause I didn't come to look out the window anyway. The only problems I had was the expensive parking $30 dollars a day plus tipping every time we got in and out added up, also I wish they would have had a concierge because even though we had family in Houston, we were clueless on the nightlife. Overall we had a great stay and would definitely do it again! !

Great location

Location of hotel was great for where we went. Walking distance to many restaurants and discovery park. There was construction happening so it was really noisy on some days. My room was next to a linen closet which was extremely noisy. Hotel staff was vey gracious n gave me a one night credit on my overnight parking. $28 so I was happy. Clean rooms. Very friendly staff.

Business travel

The hotel has a bistro with great food and service. There is also a full Starbucks. The staff is courteous and helpful. They need a sundry shop, especially since it is dangerous to walk around at night, and there are no grocery stores or convenient stores nearby. The room overall was clean, but the carpet was stained and look dirty, a big turn off. The blackout drapes/curtains did not open all the way and were hard to slide. They have newspapers in the lobby; they are not delivered to your room. There is no hair dryer as described in the website. They offer a free shuttle within downtown, very convenient. For their room prices, I expected more.

ice machine

everything was great!! the staff was awesome--very helpful and keeping bags till check in and even after checkout while I finished up the conference. great location (construction across street though for building being torn down). the only bad thing was the ice machine on 7th floor was broke--sign said to go to 6th or 8th--went to 6th and machine was broke---finally went up to 8th and got ice. that was a little inconvenient in pjs at night. otherwise everything else was FANTASTIC!!!

Can't complain.

Was close enough to the venue that I was able to walk there both days. Room was decent enough. Having to pay for parking was not ideal.

Good weekend

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The price and location was impressive. I needed to go to George R Brown Convention center. Room was really clean. Starbucks in lobby but was not included in the room charge. Only bad thing I see is the valet parking price (25$+tax/night) when there is 5-6 different parkings 15$ maximum between hotel and convention center.

business trip

nice room very comfortable, we stayed for 5 days, after the 2nd day housekeeping did less and less. On the last night we came back to the room after all doy in conferences and the room had not been touched. Other than housekeeping the rest of the staff , front desk, valets and shuttle driver are A+

great location. reasonable rates

This hotel is conveniently located in downtown Houston. Excellent breakfast, and well worth the breakfast included rate. The free wifi was easy to connect and consistent. I would certainly stay here again.
