She made checking in easy. She also gave us recommendations where to eat, which were walking distance. Excellent recommendation Jeannie, we loved eati g at china...

Location is great ! IF your looking for the best food ABSOLUTELY walk to the China Garden! This is THE BEST Chinese food we have ever had. Multi generation restaurant which overperforms and the locals know about. They come from far to visit there. Hidden little unappearing little gem! The Hilton has a Papa's Cantina on the far North side...

We stayed here for a local concert. The price was very reasonable and the location is great. It is walking distance to the Toyota Center. I would say 2 blocks. You can see the Toyota Center from the hotel. Great staff! There is limited parking in the front but there is additional parking in the back of the hotel. We...

As an alternative to the more upscale places around the area, Holiday Inn Express is a value for money choice. It is only one block away from the main places and they offer free parking. The rooms are relatively large and clean. Breakfast is above average for the hotel type. It would be even better if it was not served...

This is my second stay- the room was clean, the microwave and mini-frig are bonus. The gym is compact but the equipment all works, and don't forget a swimsuit for the nice indoor pool and hot tub. Your business account will go further here and yet you are still near all the same venues as the larger chain hotels. Service...

First off, the rooms are neat and tidy. Nothing bad to say about that. Breakfast however is served on plastic plates, with plastic cutlery. Nothing in the hotel is recycled. Not the appropriate way forward in the age of plastic pollution and climate change!

The facility was good for a reasonable price and located close enough to main downtown are to walk without having to fool around with parking. Staff was courteous and helpful. Valet parking is somewhat expensive.

Nice little quiet hotel next to the Convention Center, Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park. All within walking distance. There are restaurants and nightclubs also within walking distance. The hotel offers a continental breakfast, indoor pool and hot tub, ample space in the rooms, comfortable beds. Staff and service was really great.

If you need to stay downtown in Houston, this is a reasonably good choice. From the front you're just a block from the Toyota center. But the best thing is probably the free parking with in/out privileges, a huge bonus so close to downtown. Unless you like paying $25 per day? The room itself was spacious and fairly comfortable, with...
