Amazing staff

Would recommend Mon, Nov 16, 2015
For my personal experiences, the staff could not have been more spot-on. I forgot half the necessities I needed on my trip (including a USB thumb drive for my presentation), and the staff was able to assist me in every way.

Conference

Would recommend Sun, Nov 8, 2015
The staff at the Sheraton are top notch! I would recommend staying here if you are looking to not be directly on the Riverwalk. The only issue was the room on the club level, not what I would have expected as the room was very small and had a terrible view of the rooftop of the lower floors. Otherwise a very pleasant stay.

Majestic Theater Play

Would recommend Sun, Apr 19, 2015
We had tickets to the play, which is just across the street from this hotel. We have stayed here before. Great location as we also walked down the river walk for breakfast. Old hotel ... but very nice. Nice people

Great weekend trip.

Would recommend Mon, Apr 6, 2015
It was very easy to find. Very nice lobby and rooms. Everything was clean. The staff was very helpful. Feels like a five star hotel. Live music in the speak easy. A bakery, a restaurant, and two bars. Great experience for the price. The rooms were big with updated everything. The beds were clean and comfy. Only problem was the sirens on the streets were crazy loud. But Thats what you get for staying so close to the river walk and downtown. River walk was very close to the hotel. Starbucks inside your room or across the street. Great workout center and great heated pool. Overall great place to stay. I highly recommend it.

Historic Hotel-Near Riverwalk

Would recommend Wed, Mar 4, 2015
Stayed over the Valentines Weekend. Great location. Close to theaters and Many fine restaurants along Houston Street. Hotel is nicely decorated. Wonderful beds...tiny tiny bathrooms (this hotel was built like 1900 or so) overall room a bit small but comfortable. Valet parking a bit steep. Overall stay was pleasant. Not a bad place to stay

Business as usual

Would not recommend Thu, Jan 22, 2015
For a 4 star hotel one would at least expect a schedule of TV channels in the room for reference. Further, when using the sink in the room, cold water would be nice. The cold water faucet literally did not work. The hotel is in a great location for either business or tourism, and candidly is in good, clean condition. However, on this and one previous experience I found basic maintenance, and staff interest below par. While I gave the hotel a second chance, I probably won't give it a third.
