This hotel is in a fantastic area! It's across the street from a cute and new bar and restaurant, Minute Maid Park and a Catholic church. We stayed here for a wedding on Easter weekend, and it was perfect! The fitness center is amazing, and the bar and restaurant in the hotel are really convenient. Unfortunately, the hotel doesn't have...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 September 2016

This was a great hotel! Staff was super friendly, everyone on staff greeted you as you walked by, doors were open for you, etc. The hotel rooms were really nice, rainfall shower heads were a nice touch. Best part about this place was that it was right across the street from Minute Maid Park! We wound up catching a game...

My boyfriend and I stayed this weekend for the Astro/Royals game and I fell in love. The staff was very hospitable and accommodating. The bar had great drinks and the breakfast buffet that we had on Sunday was delicious! I loved it so much that we stayed another day because it was conveniently located across from the stadium. We definitely...

We were in town for my birthday celebration, and decided to stay at the Westin downtown. It was a very distinctive experience: in a good way. The hotel staff was courteous and welcoming. The classic decor, cleanness, and value made this hotel a must next time we are in town. Walking distance to Discovery and Toyota Center. Literally down the...

Great location downtown. The staff was very helpful, offering great suggestions on local restaurants. Everyone, the front desk, bartender and doormen were extremely welcoming and friendly. We would highly recommend this location, we will be back!

The hotel was very nice and the stuff is very friendly. The big plus is the training kit for $5 so that you don't have to pack your trainers if you travel only for a few days. I would go back only for that! Breakfast was excellent and again the stuff really helpful. My only comment would be that the...

Great location. Rooms are standard but with the Westin signature touches. The staff is very friendly, especially at their restaurant, Lalo had some good recommendations for dinner. Workout room is small but it has all the basic stuff for business stays.
