Great location in medical center area!

This hotel is within walking distance to everything in the Texas medical center. Also very close to Rice University and Rice Village. The hotel offers a shuttle that takes you anywhere within a 2 mile radius. Great service and attentive staff.

Interview at Texas Medical Center

It is very close to the texas medical center which was very convenient. It was a little of the pricy side, but you get what you pay for. Nice environment. The staff were pleasant.

Great hotel for a Great Conference

I recently stayed at the hotel while attending a conference. There were lots of positives, comfortable beds, large fitness center and pool/whirlpool, minifridge in the room, and the TVs were large. A couple of concerns: - the bath water can get really hot, really quickly so if you have small children beware. The pillows were flat, and the starbucks inside the hotel has very limited hours. The restaurants around the hotel all close by 10pm. Overall, I thought it was a pretty nice hotel, and I would definitely stay there again.

Great stay

This Marriott was a great location near the hospitals, but there was plenty to be desired as far as places to eat nearby. Luckily, the hotel had a great shuttle service to local places like Rice Village with plenty of eating and shopping.

Cliff's Grill nearby was one of the few places close to the hotel, but it had some great sandwiches! I would walk there from farther away if I was staying in the area again.

It was a good hotel. The room smelled a little funny like someone previously had smoked in it. Overall experience was good.

Wonderful staff!

The staff was friendly and helpful. I forgot several amenities (last minute trip!) and they went out of their way to get some for me. Cons: No food or shopping within walking distance. Pros: Free shuttle to food and shopping. :-)

Totally Convenient, really humid

I stayed here two nights in April. Room never got below 72 degrees and felt like the humidity was around 75-80%. Staff is SLOW to do any and everything. Hate to say it, but compared to the six other hotels I've stayed at in the last two months, this is by far the worst. The hotel is VERY CONVENIENT to Methodist Hospital, the dental school, and all the other medical and research facilities there and I guess that's why you choose it. Take my advice, stay one block farther away at the HILTON!
