Comfort Suites - Near the Galleria
Ranked #233 of 518 Hotels in Houston
Reviewed 26 May 2017

We stayed two nights while doing business in the area. As others have noted, the neighborhood is working class, at best, but I never felt unsafe. The notice to remove all valuables from cars parked in the lot is the standard one found on every parking lot ticket.

Lobby and breakfast area were extremely clean and tidy. Breakfast included hot food -- eggs, breakfast meats and make-it-yourself waffles -- and the usual cold foods, such as yogurt, boiled eggs, breads, and cereals. Also juice, coffee and milk.

The rooms are all suites, with a half-wall separating the sofa area from the beds. As is usual, the television is in front of the beds, not the sofa, which is awkward. However, there is a coffee table and an end table with lamp, so it makes a nice reading nook. There's a small table with two chairs for eating, as well as a kitchenette-style counter area with microwave and mini-fridge, as well as coffee maker, ice bucket, and plastic cups as well as paper coffee cups. We found a set of paper plates, napkins and plasticware in a ziplock bag in the drawer, which was a nice touch.

Lots of outlets for recharging electronics. Beds were very comfortable, with nice quality of linens. Towels were very soft. Decent quality toiletries. The bathroom could use another towel rack, but couldn't they all?

Fitness center includes one each of treadmill, elliptical, bike and weight machine, plus free weights. The a/c was broken, which made it less than ideal.The only other negative was the hot tub and pool, which both need a good cleaning, the hot tub especially.

Dear Dr_QBatonRouge,

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of our property, as we appreciate all of your feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you found our service to be superb, our amenities to be above average, and the environment to be safe. I'm so sorry that our AC in our fitness center was broken when you visited. Please know that this has since then been fixed. In addition, we have recently completed an acid wash of our pool and spa, so they are much cleaner than before. Thank you for choosing the Comfort Suites Near the Galleria, and we hope to see you again in the future!

Respectfully,

Allyson Redd

We were in Houston for two nights attending our son's graduation at Rice University. We had booked an employee rate for two rooms, (1-King and 1-Double Queen).
Upon arrival we were told they had that our double queen was unavailable since the GM decided to give it to someone else.
As an employee of Choice Hotels I totally understand the whole communication from one employee to another. A simple call or email explaining to us of what they were doing should have been warranted.
If it wasn't for Jackie, I probably would have contacted Guest Relations. We were still paying guests but obviously the GM that other wise. My hat goes off to Jackie as she is a great asset to this hotel. Maybe she can teach the other team members about great customer service....THANK YOU JACKIE FOR MAKING OUR STAY A GREAT ONE.

Room Tip: Just call ahead and double check your reservation to make sure they didn't give it away.

We stayed at this hotel for its location and found it to be very clean and well kept. The staff is very eager to help. However, the room 103 that we stayed in had an odor . At first we thought the carpet was just cleaned but the odor lingered for our three days' stay. The shower faucet was leaky and the water pressure was low. He tried to fix it and tried for couple hours and could not fix it. Note to myself, if you walk in the room and it does not smell right, ask to switch right away. We do love the hot breakfast that was different for all three days. She kept the food well stocked and kept the breakfast area clean. This location has a nice out door swimming pool and chair lift for handicapped. The fitness room is small but the equipments are fairly new.

Unfortunate circumstances brought myself and my family to this location (funeral), but they were accommodating and very helpful at this stressed out time. Jackie G. was at the front desk, and she made sure we all had everything we needed, complete with condolences and a warm smile. She was fantastic! It seems as if the words 'customer service' get lost on some at times, but our stay at the CS was one of the best we've had in recent history. Thank you for your help and we will be back :)

While this motel is not upscale neither is the price. It is clean, sufficient, good breakfast and the staff is way above normal Customer Service. Jackie, at front desk, is the one to deal with. She knows what you need before you do. Best Motel CS staff I have ever encountered and I travel a lot!! Park up front for security reasons -but- you have security issues all over the world now. Nothing to be afraid of, just be careful. I generally require 3 stars or above. I took a risk on previous reviews of this motel and it worked. If you have over $200 a nite for motels, go elsewhere. If not and you need a room for 2 or more nights, stay here.
