Nice hotel, very pricey

Staff was great, location, excellent for our needs (ball game at Minute Maid Park). Paid upfront for the room (almost $300.00), however, we were still charged almost $30.00 more upon check out for valet parking. There is NO other option BUT valet parking!! Nice hotel, but not such a good deal, after all.

Great Place to Stay

I stayed here after attending an Astros game at Minute Maid Park. The park is literally right across the street. I was able to walk to and from the game easily. Everyone at the Westin is very courteous-from the valet that parks your car to the waitress in the lounge. The rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable. This was my second stay at the Westin Downtown, and I highly recommend it.

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 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.

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!
