Residence Inn by Marriott Houston Downtown/Convention Center3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
loved our room which was ready when we arrived (think it was 723 from memory). early afternoon. Woman at reception (Miriam?) was very friendly and helped us out with directions to a nearby hotel where our city tour next day was departing from. Gave us a rundown on facilities in the hotel and even gave us a small map. Breakfast was good. On the last day dining room was very full with a school sports group also in residence but within 15 mins they left and things were a little quieter. We did hear some street noise but not enough to be a problem. I think our jet lag probably helped us sleep through the worst of it. Room was spacious and clean and suited our needs. Would happily return here and recommend it to others. Pool looked nice but did not get a chance to use it. Not sure if would get all day sun as overlooked by high buildings. Gym was nice and clean.
I stayed at this Residence Inn for business since it was close to a meeting that I was going to have the following day. The woman at the front desk (Megan M.) was extremely pleasant and even enclosed a nice hand written note to welcome me on my arrival.
We had a WONDERFUL visit!! This hotel was very easy to find and so was the valet parking. The front desk attendant was so friendly and all smiles. The room was amazing with a great view of the city. The room with the two bed suite was definitely bigger than what we expected. Kitchen and bathrooms were very clean. Beds were really nice and so were the pillows. It was really nice to have 3 tvs in the suite everyone was happy. We left before breakfast but it looked to be really good. This hotel was walking distance to everything we needed. So the $30.00 parking was fine with us. NOW FOR THE REALLY ABOVE AND BEYOND!! We requested a high floor for my son and we got it!! Then in my reservation I asked if they could do an elephant and a bag of skittles for him and OMG!!! They did it!!! He was ABSOLUTELY EXCITED!!! We have asked for this from many different hotels we stayed at in the past but it has never been done. THANK YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! ❤❤❤❤❤When we come back to Houston we will stay here again!!
We stayed here for the better part of a year, for training my husband had to do for work. They went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. From Valet, to the front desk, to breakfast, to housekeeping, and everything in between. I hope we are able to go back and visit them again, next time we're in Houston!! They treated myself, my husband, and most especially my son like family.
Stayed one night. Rates are reasonable as Houston can be expensive mid week. Great staff checks you in, got my Elite Member benefits, booked a larger suite. The Hotel is new, the building is not, but the history has been preserved and the renovations they did to make this a Marriott property are really quite spectacular. I don't usually stay at these types of hotels for the free breakfast, as I usually don't care for the food. However, this is not your typical residence Inn, nor is this a typical breakfast. Great variety, a massive and service oriented staff, even walking around with free smoothies. Overall, I was blown away by the Residence Inn. Not always an fan of residence Inns, as they just my thing. But this one stays in my travel portfolio. Great Job Everyone.
This is not the usual Residence Inn. Rather, it is one of 3 Marriott brands located in an historic Houston office building. Although unusual, Marriott pulls it off with a Courtyard and Spring Hill Suites also on site. We prefer the Residence Inn as it alone offers a 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite of about 800sq ft or so.Our suite was on the 10th floor and was fairly quiet for a city RI. Predictability is what you get as all RI are close to the norm and provide a spacious and comfortable home away from home. Variables are the food service and staff deportment. This RI excels at both! The breakfast is at the high end and most staff were pleasant and competent. Although I do not care for the mandatory valet parking, it is a small price to pay for a fine downtown suite.
Historical building with 3 hotels. Hotel is under construction so finding the valet entrance was tricky. Room was clean and spacious. As with typical downtown settings, you hear the downtown traffic in your room. Breakfast was really good. Was pleasantly surprised to see that they had gluten free bagels. Big plus!!!! Been to several Residence Inns, but the breakfast area, selection and staff attention was phenomenal. Faye was so attentive with all the guests, making sure that everyone is taken care of. Would definitely return.
Historic building houses Residence Inn, Spring Hill, and Courtyard. RI room had spacious layout, large work area...recent remodel...large lobby and breakfast area with fireplaces. Rooftop pool. Interior access to CY bistro/bat. Great aaa rates. Handy to dining and free city orange route shuttle to stops including Toyota center. 2-3 blocks to house of blues.
Three hotels share the same building, the lobby to the Residence Inn seems a bit cramped. Service at breakfast is fantastic. With an upgrade to the furniture in the rooms, this one has potential to go from good to great!
Rachel is the dining room associate who works the breakfast area. She is OUTSTANDING. She goes out of her way to make everyone feel at home. She thanks you for your business and wishes you a nice day. The rest of the staff is great too. Room are updated and clean. Hotel is joint with two other Marriott brands - Springhill Suites and Courtyard.
