Recent guest reviews

We needed a hotel close to the George Bush Intercontinental because we had an early flight the next morning. Check in/out went flawlessly, clerks were friendly and quick. The room was fresh and quiet even though we went to bed early. clean bed and hot shower and we were happy.

Travelled to Houston for an overnight trip and stayed here. Ended up having to extend my stay and stayed here again since I knew what I was getting. DirectTV television. WiFi with good speeds. Excellent work desk space for business travellers. Decent sized rooms with couch and wet bar. Ceiling fans over beds are a big plus. Makes it easier to fall asleep when it is just like home. Clean, a few flaws (see pictures). Staff was very friendly and outgoing. Overall will stay here again.

Convenient location right next to I-45 on a relatively low-traffic street. The facilities seem older but like they have been remodeled recently. I don't know if it was because my room was by the stairwell or just bad luck, but I could hear stomping/noise above my room a couple nights that was annoying. Decent workout room for a HIE (all the equipment plus the TV actually worked), and then lobby area is very nice. Had some issues with cleanliness and service that I left feedback to the hotel directly about, nothing unfixable. I couldn't get the right gate to open after-hours with my key, but there is a good amount of ungated parking as well.

I stay at a lot of IHG properties. In short, this one was disappointing. Service is friendly and helpful but the hotel simply seemed a bit old and cheap and therefore rated below average. I've stayed at much nicer HI Expresses. One put off was the the hotel is two buildings. If you are on floor 5, that's floor two Building B. Not a huge deal, just an unexpected surprise. The breakfast was standard fare and fine. The rooms were just ok. Ceiling fan was a nice touch I suppose. Pillows were cheap foam pillows like I'd expect at lesser hotels. Rooms were fairly quiet, which is good. The exercise room was small but had two treadmills, one elliptical, one recumbent bike and a bench with some free weights. Shuttle service was helpful. Restaurants nearby. Overall, it's an OK place to stay if convenient. Next time in the area however I might be inclined to try someplace else.

I wanted to praise 2 employees who helped us out tremendously when we arrived in Houston at the Holiday Inn Express on Feb 22. We arrived from Vancovuer, Canada and the taxi driver did not take all our luggage out of the car when he left us. My husband’s briefcase was left with his computer and passport and numerous important items. Nekol at the front desk and Dexter, the shutter driver stepped into action. Nekol googled the taxi company within minutes, was able to get a hold of someone and track down the driver after 30 min. Dexter assisted my husband by flagging down another Yellow cab, spoke to that driver who also tried to help. He calmed my husband down immediately and stayed positive. Lucky we were able to get the briefcase back and Nekol phoned me to ensure she had received it after it was located and we went shopping. Both really saved the day and made us feel comfortable and assured that it will all work out. I wanted to acknowledge both employees for their tremendous customer service and saving our vacation. We had to overnight in Houston before going to Honduras and if they had not rescued us, we likely would not have be able to leave. Dexter got us to the airport the next day and on we went on holidays and we are now back home in Canada. In addition, the hotel we stayed at was very clean, had a great breakfast and we were able to get into the room a bit earlier thanks to Nekol. We will always remember these special employees and hope they get some recognition within.

The hotel was in a nice location. The staff did an outstanding job. Upon my arrival I was met with friendly and a professional staff. The atmosphere was comfortable and pleasant. The check in was simple and quick. The rooms were clean and the amenities were acceptable. I normally don't eat breakfast at the hotel, but the food was good and the staff assisted with any help that I needed.

This hotel is a great choice nearby IAH. It's close enough to IAH but far enough not to have that "airport hotel" feel. Rooms are large and clean, and staff is easy to work with and fixed a reservation error quickly. A lot of food and shopping choices nearby and closeness to I-45 make it easy to get on the highway very quickly. This will definitely be my top choice for IAH area hotels.

This is a great location, for easy on/off freeway access, right off I-45 North. Couldn't believe the "bang we got for our bucks"! My wife and I got a suite, with TV in each room and the price was excellent. It came with a Free Wi-Fi / Internet for the price/room we picked. Also, had Free Hot Breakfast. The Front Desk Mgr. on duty was "super". She even, helped googled me in to the hotel(I had gotten lost!) Since this hotel was practically new(1 year old), I had no complaints whatsoever about the property. The restaurant area is super, with the walk-up staircase to the second floor. Makes you feel like you're in a luxury hotel. There is "no shortage" of restaurants nearby. This hotel definitely served it's purpose and I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here 2 separate times on our cruise vacation. The first was a Saturday. I called the hotel at 10am to see if they had a room available bc our flight was early. They did. So we went and checked in. How nice is that. Most places would say no. The lady up front was so nice. The second stay was a Sunday night again we got to hotel early about noon this time. Check in was a breeze. I had a problem with tickets I ordered for the football game. I couldn't access them in the business center. So I asked the front desk for help. She let me back in the office to use that computer. It worked. So happy we chose this hotel. Very clean. Your front desk staff rocks!!!!!

This is a great location in North Houston, right off of I-45 but not in an overly crowded area of the city. I was at this location for 5 nights and Quentin, Daryl, Ashley, Jatorra and Lilly took great care of me and my team. They went the extra mile by providing bedding and helping me reprogram my "fitbit". These five in particular get gold stars. You are walking distance from, Popeyes, Jack-in-the-Box and Whataburger. There are also many sit-down restaurants in the area.
