We were quite pleased with this beautiful boutique hotel. It was wonderful to have access to the hotel shuttle for downtown destinations. I would recommend The Sam Houston for business or pleasure travelers.

I had read a few negative reviews before visiting this hotel. After staying at TheSam Houston Hilton Curio, I can only ascertain that the negative review folks stayed at a different venue! We found the hotel excellent in all categories.

The Sam does not have a shuttle to the airport. They typically recommend Uber as the least expensive way.

My wife and I stay here every time we come downtown for an Astros game. While there are homeless nearby, the area is safe and we’ve never had an issue. We always walk to/from the games. The hotel is clean and friendly. The staff is very helpful, and you can quickly Uber anywhere. The dinner menu is not to our liking, but the bar is nice, and breakfast has always been great.

"Bathroom was fine for people on different schedules, but not fine when both have same schedules."
"Some corner rooms provide nice views and two bathrooms"
"The higher the quieter. Take your own Bottle of Water up to the room as everything has to be paid for at a price"
"If you can swing one, a suite is a great option....."
"I did hear traffic noise & car alarms on Prairie Street side."
