Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The C. Baldwin, Curio Collection by Hilton is celebrated for its luxurious atmosphere and modern charm, with guests often noting the stunning decor and welcoming vibe. Service at the hotel is generally commended for being attentive, though there are occasional mentions of slow service. While the on-site dining and shuttle service receive positive nods, some visitors were disappointed by the absence of certain amenities like a spa. The rooms offer pleasing upgrades and views, yet some guests have encountered noise and decor that feels dated. Cleanliness is typically well-regarded, but housekeeping has room for improvement. The hotel's central location is a boon for those looking to explore the area. However, the value proposition has been called into question by numerous travelers, who have pointed out unexpected charges and a perceived lack of enhancements.

The concierge, bellmen & cleaning staff could not have been more friendly, helpful and welcoming. You have an excellent team and it shows. I was early for my meeting and they graciously allowed me to check in which was extremely appreciated.

Hotel's Favourite
I loved the hotel.. Rafael downstairs was the nicest man in the whole staff. If you are coming to Houston Texas, stay here. They have a 3 course meal for 20$. My only complaint Is the lighting in the rooms. I had a corner room & it should think about ceiling windows. In My shower .. the water took a long time to go down

This was my first time in Houston, Texas and im glad i was able to stay in C. Baldwin because it met all my exceptions. Jose G assistant manager of Valet parking was wonderful and helped with their shuttle through downtown houston and even went above and beyond when i needed something from the hotel/information etc. I will definitely stay here again for future visits. Keep up the excellent work/staff.

I want to salute Jose G. who manages the valet car services. A friend and I stayed at the hotel for four nights. Jose's smile, courtesy and attentive care made our stay. He is a valuable employee. Everything else at the hotel was fine. Although the lighting in our room in the evening was like a cave, which made it impossible to read. I imagine it was intended to be romantic, but one should have a choice.

Ate in the restaurant here to catch a show near by. Had to be in and out quickly and the restaurant accommodated my request. The supervisor told me she’d help make it happen and she did. I’m thankful for that. I don’t remember her name but light colored hair and pony tail - black blazer. Valet was friendly but we weren’t parking we were just walking in and out. Beautiful hotel will be back to stay and not just eat thank you
