Reviewed yesterday NEW

Made a reservation 3 weeks in advance, then on day of check-in, while waiting to get discharged from the MD Anderson I get a call from the hotel that my room was given away because the were overbooked. (kind of sounds like the excuse the airlines give) The only justification they gave me was that there was a U2 concert...

I lived here for a month between selling and buying a home locally. I had 2 teens and a dog with me. The breakfast was awesome and pool were great. Staff was nice and I always had a clean room to come home to. Great pub called Chupacabra Craft Beer and Salado Lone Star Winery that we enjoyed hanging out...

Excellent location, you can walk to all kinds of food and shops. The beds were super comfy, it was quiet, clean, room and bathroom very large, snazzy bar that serves cocktails. Free breakfast - it's not fancy but edible and very well maintained. They are still doing some renovations in this boutique hotel but I would stay again no doubt.

While attending Rodeo Houston this week, we've been s​taying at Hotel Ylem, and it's made us really think more about the type of people we want to be. Didn't know a hotel could do that, but it has. It's a family-owned hotel that wants to not only bless their guests, but also make a difference in the world. They donate...

Although the hotel is still under renovations, the staff and housekeeping were hospitable and seemed to do everything they could to make our stay as good as possible. The hotel is in a great area and the shuttle takes you to good locations and the driver was conversational and friendly as well. The newer rooms look soooo much better than...

This hotel, which may never have pretended to be more than functional, is undergoing NOW a revamping. The intentions are good, but whoever designed the remodeling might want to seek another profession. Lighting is terribly mislocated. The bath has NO flat surface on which to place one's needs while performing ablutions. The lobby begs for some comfortable seating. Meanwhile, the...

First the good ones: Staff amazing, nice location. Really close to medical center and nice restaurants walkable distance. Also the metro is nearby. The rooms are a little small for my taste, and is currently being under some construction (but they keep this area closed). The price is really good, and breakfast is ok. I would definitely will stay here...

Just spent 5 nights in this hotel so feel very confident giving fair review. The only good thing is that beds and pillows were comfortable and I slept well.

My niece is taking chemotherapy. This hotel is very close to MD Anderson. It gives a discount to patients and provides free shuttle service. Rooms are very clean and it's newly remodeled. Free breakfast is provided.
