The George4.0 out of 5.0

When people visit College Station, it usually has something to do with Texas A&M University so whenever possible, it makes sense to get close to the University when selecting a place of lodging. One choice that makes sense for its nearby proximity to the college and to the top action in the city of College Station is The George, a boutique hotel. The George is a medium- sized hotel with a few floors of rooms, bar, restaurant, fitness center, and outdoor pool perfect for those excessively hot Texas nights. The pool is very cool to look at and it is certainly one of the hotel’s assets. The complimentary continental breakfast is nice and the wall depicting the Texas flag, made with actual books, is a sight to behold. The hotel has a feeling of newness and modernity, and these facts make it appealing to the more trendsetting crowd. With the rooms, the George features two options: A single king size bed or two double beds. I stayed here with my family and we opted, of course, for a room with two beds. We were gravely disappointed to discover that the two beds are two full size beds, not two queen size beds, like we expected. This forced us to rearrange our sleeping and have one kid sleep on a chair. Double beds are simply not large enough for anyone except the smallest individuals and I’m a little surprised that those in charge decided against going with queen size. Other than that, the rooms do, indeed, look nice and whoever is responsible for their design deserves kudos for creating such a mod look and feel. Outside of the rooms, the wife and I liked the 1791 bar. Unlike the bars typical of other hotels, this one has a whiskey emphasis and there is a LOT of different whiskey from which to choose. The bar area has tables, chairs, couches, etc. for seating and it opens directly to the pool. They have shuffleboard, too, and a chessboard and pieces ready for use, if the urge to play a game hits you. The George has a helpful staff and they do their best to make your stay comfortable, but another area where I did have issues is with the parking. There are not enough spaces for a hotel this size and I had to drive around and around in circles for nearly 30 minutes one evening as I tried to find a place to park. Yes, they have valet parking, but considering the high price, it simply wasn’t worth it. College Station will always be known as the home to Texas A&M University and any visit to the area is almost certain to require a stay in one of the many hotels. The George certainly has its charms, but it is difficult to get past the issues with parking and those tiny full size beds which make it difficult for a family of normal- size people to get a good night’s sleep. It still has enough going for it to recommend, but beware of the small beds and parking: You may spend more time circling the parking lot than you would prefer and you may end up spending a sleepless night battling the person next to you for bed space.
On my floor or any floor you can hear everything from the street and lobby. And that's all great... If you want to stay up til 12 listening to live music. Plus, my family of 4 is having to sleep on the chair, couch, and beds cause those beds are made for 3 year olds. I don't think this is all worth almost 300$ even with the free breakfast. Sorry but you guys sucked hard on my last nerve.
Wonderful location, convenient to shopping food and school. Super comfortable and the staff was super helpful and attentive. We felt like the only guests on site, such great attention! Breakfast had many choices and the coffee was very good. The kids even had a good time. Rooms were well laid out and comfortable. We had family staying that ranged from 60 to 3, everybody was happy. We will be back.
The hotel had everything you could want. We stayed in a suite so our kids could sleep separate. Everything is chic yet cozy. Breakfast was amazing. People friendly. Amenities too notch. Family heaven!
When we arrived, we were immediately greeted very warmly by George T. That sets the tone for our entire stay. The hotel is nice and comfortable - not too fancy. It was great to hang out with friends by the pool and in the lounge. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and the service that the staff provided. Being within walking distance to A&M and plenty of restaurants, this is a great choice when visiting College Station.
Really enjoyed our stay at the George during the weekend the Aggies played New Mexico. We could easily walk to the game and around campus and we were right next to new nightlife and dining. The room was spacious and well decorated. Everything was very clean. The staff was incredibly friendly. We did not experience any problems while staying at the hotel. Third floor room above the entrance was fairly quiet. I absolutely ADORE the Texas flag book display at the entrance. Would definitely return.
A lot of positives - decor is great, also got a great price. But I'm in bed at 10:48 on a Friday night, there is a two person band (with a lot of prerecorded backup music) in the bar downstairs, and it sounds as if they are just three doors down at most. I guess my only option is to hope they stop playing soon. Not a lot of parking. Like I said, I wanted to make this my new go to hotel in College Station, but the noise is just too much.
The decor is very unique and interesting. But the room on the second floor was super noisy. We could hear everything coming from the first floor. Friday night the hotel had karaoke or some kind of singing till 11. It was extremely loud. There was no sound proof. It was a nightmare.
Stayed this past weekend at The George for a college visit with my son and the Aggie football game.Was looking forward to finally experiencing a nice, modern, non-chain hotel in Aggieland. PROS: Beautifully designed. The lobby area, hallways, guest rooms and bathrooms are all great. Beds very comfortable. Upscale bathroom toiletries and linens. Nice lobby bar. Continental breakfast. Free Wifi. Free parking (valet available). Outside sitting area. Cool pool (but don't expect much sun due to positioning). Walkable restaurants. CONS: Absolutely no water pressure in the well-designed shower. I understand the concept of flow restrictors in the shower heads to save water, but this is extreme. And the floor tile in the shower is the same as on the walls and it is slippery. Now I understand what the wall design means by "slick as a whistle." Retail area surrounding The George is still under development (will be nice when built out). Hotel restaurant Poppy not fully operational yet. Overall all, I expect The George will improve over time, and the nightly price will likely come down to market level as well.
I stayed at the George on a Thursday night when in town for a meeting on the A&M campus. I have previously stayed at the neighboring Cavalry Court Hotel, so I was interested to check out that property's upper end partner. Both are located in the new Century Square Development, still under construction, at what used to the location for married student housing. Until the new on campus hotel is completed, this is the closest hotel on campus. It's close enough to walk to bars and restaurants at Northgate, easily. Might be a bit of a stretch to walk to a game at Kyle Field, or an event at the University Center complex, but it's feasible in good weather if you like to walk. Once the new development gets finished, however, there will be a lot to keep you occupied without venturing more than a 100 yards or so from the hotel. Besides a great location, this hotel is a very attractive property, which makes good use of space. My king room, although not overly large, was well laid out, but not in the traditional manner--the bed was turned perpendicular to the wall where the TV was located, and instead, faced the window. There was a couch where you could sit to watch TV, and a desk/work station under the TV where you could get some work done if your stay involved business. All the furnishings were high quality, the bed was comfortable, the room dark and quiet at night, and the TV was large and with a great selection of channels. A continental breakfast was included in the rate, and while I'm not usually a fan of this, the pastries provided were good quality--I especially liked the cinnamon rolls. The hotel's restaurant, Poppy's, was not opened the night I stayed there, but I grabbed some great pizza at Blaze, which is one of three other restaurants currently open in Century Square. Parking might be challenging some nights until they get construction finished (there will be garages in the development) and has apparently been an issue for those wishing to visit Century Square, but not staying at the hotels, but they seem to have a handle on this (at least for the hotels). Overall, this is a great place to stay, and the location can't be beat.
