Stayed for one night. Good sized room with super comfortable bathrobe, bed, pillows. Coffee maker with Starbucks sachets. Well equipped gym which is open 24 hours accessible only by hotel room card. Right opposite Vic & Anthony's steakhouse who is a must try for its splendid steaks (I loved the fillet migńon) & enormous range of wines including Latours &...

I spent 2 nights in this hotel to attend a business meeting and found my stay to be excellent. The hotel is almost boutique-like in that it was not as large as I expected from a large chain hotel. However, in keeping with the large chain expectations, it had all the necessary things for travelers, including a bar, restaurant and...

The Westin downtown Houston is a great place to stay. I've stayed twice and will always be my first choice. It's also a Landry's property with one of the best steak houses i have been to right next door - Vic and Anthonys. They have a great happy hour deal at the bar and the staff is always very nice...

We were blocked here for a wedding. That is the only reason I would I would stay here. The rooms and beds wonderfulZ. The front desk staff were great. But when we wanted to sit and relax in the lounge area, poor treatment. Wait staff were either over taxed or ????. We were second guessed by a waiter when we...

Had a spectacular brunch with a Tex-Mex omlet that was topped only by the service of Christos our server. He had a great personality and a thorough working knowledge of how to make our dining experience exceptional.

My fiancé and I were celebrating valentines day this past weekend at the Westin. Though we both live in Houston, sometimes we are a little too busy to go out of town, so we often enjoy staycations in which we will book a hotel in Downtown or Midtown for just the weekend. So we ended up booking the Westin through...

Hot lobby at night - lots of activity. Rooms were deliciously comfortable. Restaurant made my food to order - off the menu. Staff were so kind. Great little coffee/snack store in lobby. If you travel for business, this is key. Highly recommend.

The hotel is beautiful. Small but well done. The hallways are loud. You can hear everything going on in the hallway from inside your room. The rooms were clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. Overall nice hotel with a noise problem.

We stayed here when we were in town for a wedding the weekend before Super Bowl. So despite all of the festivities that were already happening in the area, the hotel was very peaceful. Our room was very quiet and clean with a modern decor. And of course, the Westin beds are always the most comfortable. The only thing I...

Nice hotel, getting a remodel of the floors. Some really good features like quick room service, and vending machines on our floor. There was no pool however. It was close to the convention center. It's easy to hook up a Roku box to the TV too! Staff easy to work with. I had mistakenly booked another night and left early...
