Looking for a unique get-a-way admist the hub-bub of a metropolis? I just returned from a delightful stay in the charming Athens Hotel Suites, downtown Houston. Nestled on a quiet side street about 4 blocks from the George R Brown Convention Center is this little known and very charming Hotel. I felt like I had been transported to Europe. The...

We booked this hotel months ago with Expedia and paid in full. Arrived by taxi at 7pm after a 10 hour train trip from New Orleans. As we got out of the taxi with our suitcases the man from the hotel came out the door and told us not to come in as they were booked out as there was...

I made my reservation in the fall for a March trip, not problems when I arrived there were two guests with a problem. In the next two hours there were eight of us who had made reservations, most had pre-paid through Expedia or Booking.com. One staff member was rude while another did try to find ways to help us find...

When I got to the hotel, I was really regret that why I didn't check tripadvisor...the hotel (well this is not a hotel though) looked like a cheap motel but price was very high maybe due to event. It will cost you 25USD for early check-in even if they have a room ready, you will be charged 25USD for the...

I very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel. As a single woman alone in the city for the first time, the staff made me feel welcomed and safe. They were more than willing to help me with anything I needed, and that alone made my stay here more than worth it. the hotel itself is clean, comfortable, and fairly...

Our stay was overall fantastic. They were by far the cheapest hotel downtown and the rooms, while not super spacious, were beautifully decorated and the furnishings were pristine. The staff, although small, was incredibly warm and kind. Only downsides were lack of a pool and a janitor failed to put up a wet floor sign while mopping. Will definitely stay...

If I could give less than "1" I would. The management seemed not only inept but one older gentlemen (perhaps the owner) was completely unprofessional and not welcoming. They tried to gouge me on parking and check-in was painfully long. Place was reasonably clean, but very tired and had that smell of not having been thoroughly cleaned in years. Lukewarm...

This hotel and its staff are by far the worst I have ever encountered in my life. After taking booking, confirming reservations and taking our money when we landed in the hotel they said there was no room reserved under our name. To top it off they were absolutely rude, and the manager was racist. I'm surprised with staff like...

This was one of the most awful experiences I've ever had. Booked through hotels.com even though some of the reviews warned they were ripoff artists.
