Excellent Hotel

The hotel was very clean and well decorated. The room was quite spacious and comfortable. The staff were polite and accommodating. I highly recommend staying here, especially if you plan to do activities downtown.

Great business location

Staff were great. The only issue I have with this hotel is that many of the rooms only have windows onto a central atrium where the bar is, so there's not a huge amount of natural light coming into the room. In addition to this, noise from the bar comes up through the window until the bar shuts at 11pm, and noise from the reception area also came up early in the morning if people were waiting down there and talking and laughing. Other than that, it was a great place to stay.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

A cab to Galleria for shopping ended up costing closer to $20, than the $7 or $8 I was quoted... :-(

Wonderful location and atmosphere

Everything was great with the exception that the hotel did not have our reservation, so check-in took quite a while. They blamed it on Orbitz but I'm not sure what the real reason was. They did accommodate us even though it was a busy weekend. The rooms were very clean and the entire hotel atmosphere was great!

Nice, convienent, but pricey

Overall, a very nice stay. The rooms are pretty small and the noise from the bar/lounge area below can get loud after an Astros game. You are paying a high price for being so close to Minute Maid Park, but it is real easy to manuver when you bring kids along, so it is worth it.

Great for baseball travelers

Downtown Houston has some fun areas, but for the most part we did not want to venture too far. The Cafe' and Bar are open until 10pm and 11pm respectively along with 24 hour in room service. However, the food was on the expensive side and they prohibit outside food and drink. Can make for a more expensive trip especially if you're looking for a snack after a baseball game.

Beautiful hotel

Gorgeous rooms and Jonathan Adler update is stunning. Nice fitness room and fairly clean all around. I did not eat at the property so I cannot speak to the food but restaurant was busy for breakfast and theres a nice steakhouse and some decent TexMex near by.
