Recent guest reviews

Came here for a couple of nights, it is a very. Ice hotel, spacious rooms with a nice desk to work. Bar and breakfast is at second floor, breakfast is al a cart with a wide selection of foods. Located in Centre of Houston approximately 30 minutes to the airport.

I love all the staff that works here and managers as well. Everyone is so friendly and never felt so welcomed like this at any other hotel. Also, the restaurant onsite is excellent with their awesome drinks and delicious food. I would definitely come back for sure for another stay :)

Great hotel and staff, enjoyed my stay here. Very nice room, clean and comfortable bed. Tate at the front desk is very helpful and professional. 3 meals at Edgar Hermano all excellent (which included 2 free breakfast for me and my friend). Great location too, and great outdoor bar. Its got everything, stay there.

My daughter and I have stayed at The Whitehall three times already!! We feel so at home when we're here. Everyone is so friendly, room service was exceptional and the beds are comfortable!! Thanks Whitehall staff for another great stay!!

The service is great and the staff is wonderful. The food in the resturant is really good the staff there is really nice. Everyone one always has a smile on there face. There was one issue but that was out of the hotel hands. The elevator was not working. But the young man saw me upset but quickly turned it around by turning it into a joke. But made me appreciate the fact that he did not want me to be upset about something that is out of peoples control.

Arriving late on a Wednesday evening for an over night stay, the employee at the registration desk, greets us and quickly processed the paperwork. The room was nicely decorated, clean and spacious with FREE "WIFI" and all the room and bath necessities. After a quiet, peaceful night sleep, we proceeded downstairs for breakfast. The food arrived HOT, just as I had ordered and I never had to ask for a refill of hot coffee nor water...Kudos to our server. I give him two thumbs up!! The hotel with the amazing spiral staircase along with the outdoor patio area gives a welcoming feel. The hotel is connected to underground tunnels connecting to other buildings, so of course, I had to take a walk to explore! Overall, The Whitehall will be a place to remember for it's friendly staff, good service, hospitality, and location and a definite place to come back to. TWO THUMBS UP, Ya'll!!!

I checked in here with a co-worker last week and was greeted by Tate. He is such a wonderful addition to your front desk- super friendly, knowledgeable, and even gave us drink tickets for the bar next door. Thanks for making our experience so great! -Jaclyn and Jenn

This was my first visit to The Whitehall Houston and I will definitely return next time I am in Houston. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was nicely accommodated and very comfortable! I highly recommend Edgars Hermano where we had breakfast - great service and food. Enjoyed taking pictures at the historic staircase and with the art displayed in the connecting skywalks. Next time I will definitely spend more time in the outdoor patio and bar. I highly recommend the Whitehall, especially when you want something special, unique and historic in a fantastic downtown Houston area.

It is hard enough for me to sleep in hotels. Just isn't like home. But to have sleep disrupted for no good reason is going to make this a long day because there is no way I am going back to sleep. The other thing that irritated me about this stay is the bathroom design. You just can't sit normally on the toilet. The bathroom door is way to close so you have to sit with your legs off to the left. Please see the pictures.

Beautiful hotel - spacious room/ luxurious king bed - x2 bathrooms stunning. Top notch service from arrival to departure. Gr& 'Texas' meal in the restaurant & very enjoyable small (but with a variety) breakfast options. A very late checkout allowed - as our flight was only @ 11pm -very glad we chose this hotel & a good deal @$200 US
