"A nice, rather basic hotel. I appreciated the front desk clerk, who was kind and helpful when we became stranded and had to stay an extra night. Nice breakfast. The shuttle drivers were helpful, prompt, and courteous. Self-parking was difficult; the entrance ramp was so steep that it scraped the bottom of my car. The parking spaces were small and hard to get in and out of.2022-12-19"

"I could hear the light rail until 1:30 AM, as well as people chatting outside the hotel on the street below. Valet parking cost $32, and there was a long line waiting when we arrived. We had to find a luggage cart and unload our luggage, too.2019-03-14"

"This hotel is a wonderful place to stay. We easily walked to Toyota Center, and the Metro was just steps away. Nice, spacious room with firm beds. The bathroom was big. Good food at the bistro. The valet parking was worth the cost for the convenience. Not much green space for dogs in the area.2017-04-13"

"Nice hotel for the price. It was perfect for our stay.2015-07-23"
"Our king corner suite was nice and had a good view. We arrived at 4PM and had to wait 45 minutes to check in. There was a sticker and price tag from someone's new shoes stuck on the chair. Be sure you have refreshments in the room if it's a holiday; there was nowhere to get anything after hours.2023-01-03"
"We had a comfortable stay and were able to walk to the stadium from the hotel. The room seemed to be set up for one person instead of two; there was only one washcloth and one caffeinated coffee packet. The rooftop bar closed early, so we weren't able to experience it. We recommend staying here.2021-08-07"

"We went to a Rockets game right next door. Awesome room, and I loved the beds. The hotel clerk was so nice and let us check in early. The free cookies by the elevator were great. Free parking, and great restaurant delivery options. This was one of the best hotels I've stayed in.2017-01-13"
"Good location. My room smelled like mold, so I asked for a room change after 2 nights. The staff was helpful, and immediately offered me another room that was in much better condition. It was spacious but near the noisy elevator, and the decor was outdated.2015-05-07"
"Hotel desk clerk wasn't pleasant or welcoming; he didn't acknowledge me when I arrived and I had to introduce myself to get his attention. Not a good way to start my stay.2015-02-20"

"The hotel was OK, but it was nothing special.2017-05-24"
"Seemed overpriced. The striker plate of the door fell off when we got to our room, and then the door wouldn't shut properly. The in-room safe didn't lock. The continental breakfast had scrambled eggs but no meat. There was gravy, but no biscuits. When I asked the attendant for some, she completely ignored me. Parking was expensive. Find another hotel.2015-09-29"

"The hotel was luxurious and absolutely fabulous. The valet parking was convenient.2023-01-16"
"This was the best hotel stay I've ever experienced. From the second I pulled up to valet, I was met with a smile and helpful employees. Check-in was smooth. The deadbolt on my room door didn't work, but within 5 minutes of calling the front desk, maintenance was there to fix it. The bed was comfortable, and I liked the rainfall showerhead. Room service was fast and good, and there was even a little rose on the tray. Checkout was a breeze. I'd definitely stay here again.2016-01-11"
"Great location next to Minute Maid Park. Not much else around, though. The hotel was clean and had good service.2015-08-29"
"We love this hotel. Over 12 years, we've stayed here over a dozen times. It's a fun place with funky decor. Having a coffee bar on each floor is wonderful.2019-06-20"
"I've stayed at this hotel at least 15 times in the last 11 years, and it never fails to disappoint me. It's luxurious and never boring, and the staff is friendly. On our last visit, the bellman asked what the occasion was for our trip; we replied that we were celebrating our birthdays. A few minutes later, we received a bottle of wine. Be sure to visit the morning coffee bar in your bathrobe.2018-08-17"
"The hotel was convenient to the Metro train, so we left our car in valet parking and used the train to go downtown and to NPG Center. Some great museums were nearby, too.2018-03-24"
"I was satisfied with this hotel. It was clean, the employees were polite, and I loved the morning coffee pantry on every floor. Valet parking only, though. Great place to stay.2017-03-10"
"As always, this hotel is a delightful place to stay. It's close to everything, and there's a shuttle to most places inside the 610 loop. The employees were attentive and helpful. There's always something going on, so it can be a little noisy, but if you have a room away from the elevator, you'll miss most of the activity. There's a coffee bar on every floor.2016-04-19"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
