“Awesome Staff & Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

I loved staying at this hotel. The staff is amazing and the location is so close to Reliant Stadium, The Medical Center, Rice Village, and Rice University!

Erica, Andy, and Walker were all very helpful in all requests that we had!

Room Tip: Try to stay on the 3rd floor if possible. The high ceilings in the hallway are beautiful!

This hotel is located very near Texas Medical Center, which is very convenient for patients and family. The hotel provides a shuttle. The king master suite was very clean and thoughtfully planned, but seemed cramped and small for the price. Not really suite like - if you equate suite with room size. Still, it was equipped with many extras and although it beginning to show its age, spotless. The sofa bed was what you would expect from a sofa bed - the most awesome bed EVER to two exhausted Pre-schoolers. The king bed was very comfortable, with several pillow choices. The staff was very helpful and friendly, as well. The best thing about our stay is that, although near full that Saturday night and located in a very busy area, the hotel and room in general were blissfully quiet. From the sound of it, we were alone in the place. While children rarely travel with us, we try to be considerate of our fellow guests and make the children be quiet. A courtesy that has unfortunately NOT been returned during HIE stays in other cities

Mr. Travelingbone,

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide feed back on our hotel. We know you are busy, and have many choices in lodging, we are greatful you chose us.

It is our goal to consistently provide superior srevice and accommodations, and your comments help us target oppurtunities to improve. Due to our location, we are often busy, but remain a quiet and peaceful property.

You are quite correct in regards to the naming convention for our suites. We are in the process of changing the wording to, "Studio Suites" so that guests do no expect the accompanying additional floor space and partitions.

Again, we thank you for your astute and friendly feedback. We hope to serve you again in the future.

At Your Service,

Walker Valco

This hotel was a surprise from the standpoint that we weren't expecting much and were pleasantly surprised by the level with which the employees from the Manager, Walker, and front desk clerk Gerry, on down wanted to help. The room was pleasant especially considering the rate, and definitely met our needs. The only mildly negative problem was at 5:30am there was no one around to help with an urgent problem we had. Perhaps there could be a system of paging from the front desk area as I know the single employee scheduled has to set up breakfast.

Ms. Barbara,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review, we know your time is valuable. We are glad you enjoyed the service, and wish we could have done better to solve your issue immediately. A paging system seems like both a novel, and practical idea. I have forwarded it to my manager, and assure you a solution will be in place for future guests, and your future stay.

Thank you again for choosing us, we know you have a great many choices in lodging, and hope you choose us again soon.

At Your Service,

Walker Valco

My children and I stayed for only one night but we will go back, the rooms were extremly clean, and the desk attendant was, very helpful and curtious. I had to ask help from him a couple of times and he went directly to the problem and fixed it for us. It wasn't a major problem we were needing help with the tv, but when they are willing to help with even such a small problem you have to like it.

I stayed in this hotel from January 22-24, 2012. My sister & I were accompanying my parents as my Dad was being seen at M.D. Anderson. The hotel exceeded all of my expectations in every area. The staff at the desk were very cordial, efficient and very helpful. I only caught the name of one (Andy) and he was especially great. The room was clean & perfect for us - enough outlets & plenty of space. It was the best free breakfast I've ever had - especially the cinnamon roll! There were plenty of good restaurants nearby and the shuttle to the medical center was convenient. The bed was on the hard side but would not prevent me from staying here again.
