We needed a place just to sleep over on our way to Houston and opted for this property as it looked easy to get to from the highway. We were right. It's in a quiet part of the city. Out the door of the hotel there are a couple restaurants close by. The area felt quite safe and easy to... More

I can highly recommend this Residence Inn. Clean, quite new, great service. One of the lightbulbs burned out and they fixed it quickly once I notified the front desk. Speaking of lights, the power buttons for the lights are all quite intuitive, which is a nice change from most hotels. Front desk service is impeccable. Hopefully you will get the... More

This hotel is contemporary - very comfortable- walking distance to great restaurants- 10 min from airport! There is a shuttle to and from airport every 30 min so we did not need to rent a car. The hotel staff was so accommodating and friendly - the hotel restaurant was really good- and other very nice restaurants walking distance away.

Check-in was very pleasant and efficient and Martin called up to my room a little while after I had arrived to ensure everything was fine - a nice touch. The suite was lovely and well-appointed. It looks very new and is spotlessly clean. The service that followed was absolutely amazing. Soon after arriving, I realized that my contact lense solution... More

Stayed here in July 2014 for a family reunion. The rooms were very clean and spacious. It was very quiet. The beds were awesome. The breakfast and service was fantastic. There was one lady that made me laugh every morning at breakfast. Wish I could remember her name, but she was so helpful. Everything was so clean. They made us... More

I was greeted by Nina at the front desk who is so cheerful, helpful and friendly after driving 7 hours in the horrible rain. Very pleasant surprise to be greeted by such warmth!

I was only there 1 night, but the hotel is wonderful! The front desk staff was welcoming and friendly. The lobby, elevators, halls and room were spotless!

I'm a big fan of Residence Inns. And I've had so many good service and room experiences at them, I notice slip-ups quickly. This hotel, for the short time I was here, met the high mark. The front desk clerk, after calmly and deftly handling a taxi problem for another guest, turned to me and was as friendly and welcoming... More
