Great location near all to do!

Went to Houston Medical Center for Dr. appointment. Proximity to hospital was the reason we chose this hotel. It was only 3 miles away and all on local roads. During our stay the Rodeo was at Reliant Stadium(across the street) and the parking was tight but manageable. The noise from the hallways was loud but that can be expected. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The television was an older model picture tube and not a flat screen. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

If you attend any event at Reliant Stadium yo just have to walk across the street. No need to drive and you save on parking.

Business Stay

was easily accessible. It was Rodeo night next door at Reliant stadium. Appreciated security staff working parking to make sure customers had places to park. Room was amazingly large (I was in handicapped room - I guess all that was left) that had extremely comfortable and plush bedding. The food (steak) was pricey and not very flavorful and not tender. Knife was dull which added to frustration of cutting steak. margaritas were GREAT though!! Overall pleasant experience - I would definitely come back.

Dining tip: In Hotel

I would probably go out to a restaurant next time. I was by myself on business and lots of traffic due to rodeo - so I chose to eat in the restaurant. Next time I'd probably eat off site at a nice restaurant in town.

Never go there again

For the money it cost we could have done better with a motel 6 or something. Only had one bath towel and no hair dryer. Had to call the front desk twice to get a hair dryer. No refrigerator, no microwave, noisy air conditioner so loud couldnt hear the TV. The bed was so uncomfortable we didnt get any sleep and had sore back the next day. The elevator was filthy and the back door didnt have a security lock on it. For the same trip we will certainly book a different hotel next year.

Comfortable

Shuttle to the Medical Center was a BIG help. I did not like the fact that there were no microwave or refrigerator in the room. Free breakfast was not included in the orbitz package that I purchased, bummer.

crown plaza hotel reliant

The hotel was very clean, comfortable, and modern. Very nicely remodeled. It is a very big hotel with two restaraunts. We had a room with a king bed. The bed and pillows were to die for; very comfortable.

Lobby AC

The only real complaint as to the HOuston Grand Plaza hotel was the lobby and restuart area seemed to have been very conservative on the use of air conditioning. Warm all most stuffy. Very convenient to Reliant Park, Astrodome and Medical Center with shuttles running to all.
