The hotel staff went above and beyond to assist me during my stay in Houston. The room and meeting accommodations were outstanding. The staff is very intuitive and prepared for providing great customer service.

We spent our anniversary weekend here and everything was just wonderful! Clean rooms and bathrooms. The hotel even provided us with complimentary champagne and strawberries that made a great ending to our night. Thanks for making our 16th year anniversary special!

The room view was great, the employees was extremely nice, the valet parking was a little pricey, but well worth it. This was a great choice, and the next trip to Houston, we will most definitely stay here again.

What I liked best: the floor lighting in the bedroom has motion sensors. If you want to go to the bathroom during the night, they switch on and after a while automatically dim. I always give minus points for a bath tub but the shower head was good. The hotel is next to a freeway and the rooms are noisier...
