Good place to stay with a few improvements needed

Great place to stay but the need to work on a better way to get from the hotel to your car in the parking garage without having to ride an elevator all the way down to the first floor just to ride another elevator back up to the level where your car is. Also need to inform guests on how to get to the swimming pool/hot tub area without the guest having to ask at the front desk.

Gold hotel but not extraordinary

it is a good, luxury hotel but the staff is not very well trained. On check in they wanted to give me an inferior room and I had to talk to the manager. On check out they tried to charge me the full amount, disregarding the fact that it was prepaid. A lot of problems to rent a small conference room. Apart from this, a good hotel.

Better for business travel

Quiet. Rooms were small and room service seemed limited as compared to my previous stays. Maybe its just better for business travel. But close enought to the Galleria for easy shopping.
