A few of my colleagues and I stopped by The Whitehall to try the outside bar Part&Parcel. The gentleman (Devan) attending us was very full of life and very patient with our rowdiness. Good guy! As we were leaving,the lady at the front desk (Carmen) was very generous to inform us that parking is complimentary to Part&Parcel visitors. I would definitely recommend the bar outside,great atmosphere!

Right downtown - if you need to go somewhere else eg to the convention center -just take the green bus line free of charge. Fantastic breakfast and dinner - nice bar inside and outside. Big rooms, comfortable beds

I was impressed by how courteous and well dress eveyone was. Staff was very helpful and there were lots of things to do. Would come back and recommend. Treated me and my family very well. Had such a nice view and the pool was fun.

The room was spacious and clean. Every one was courteous. Martin, the concierge was very helpful and recommended we try The Fish. It was a great evening. We loved staying there and will definitely recommend to family and friends.

Where do i start spent a two nights and if i had the money i would live there but work finished so i had to go. From the first foot in the door till the uber driver closed my door to head to the airport was non stop surprise of how wonderful and courteous the people were and the customer service top notch 5 stars in my book and a customer for life

I recently stayed for a business trip at The Whitehall and my experience was phenomenal. The gentleman outside (Omar) was very kind to call a cab service to take me to the airport the day before my departure. The front staff was very kind and welcoming. Very nice hotel! Plan on coming back in December for another job meeting.

I stayed at The Whitehall for three nights and attended a conference at the hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean but the bathrooms were very small. The rooms had basic amenities, such as a safe, coffee maker, hair dryer, etc. The front desk staff was truly exceptional - whether recommending restaurants in the area or giving directions, they were very knowledgeable and had a real passion for their city. The conference space was very nice and the catering (breakfast and lunch) was excellent. The restaurant on the second floor of the hotel has great food and is not expensive for being conveniently located within the hotel. There is free WiFi throughout the hotel, which is quite fast. The patio bar is an excellent place for happy hour; it was very busy with both locals and visitors and there was live music playing. Overall, a great stay. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again myself.

Thankfully, my company put me up at the Whitehall after Hurricane Harvey flooded my home. It was a stressful time, but the hotel was very comfortable. The front desk staff was very helpful. The housekeeping staff and valet guys were very attentive and the food at the restaurant was really good, especially the breakfast. The lounge areas are comfortable and they even have an art display from the Savannah College of Art & Design which was really neat. If you're looking for a nice hotel in downtown Houston, I would recommend the Whitehall.

I really enjoyed my visit at Whitehall Hotel and can't say enough of the help and awesome customer service we received from John in the restaurant! Thank you so much it is definitely an experience we will never forget and look forward to our next visit!

Great hotel to stay at. Everyone was so nice and friendly. From the minute I drove up to the minute i left, it was very enjoyable. There was music, drinks, and food out on the patio, and you could sit and people watch or just enjoy the conversation with other hotel guests. The restaurant is nice and the restaurant manager was always a pleasure to see, even when he wasn't in the restaurant. Our waiter was Marco and he was excellent. Everything we ordered was delicious. I had the Caesar salad with shrimp. Fantastic. The rooms were clean and well appointed. I loved the furniture throughout the hotel. Very nice and fit in well with the scheme.
