              The hotel was very nice and was at a great location

              I did not like the fact that there were no curtains and the room was light.

              its rooms was nice

              location and the staff was not frindly

              5.8

              Walking distance to the Minute Maid Park where we went to see Paul McCartney.

              The hotel is too expensive for what it offers: only a very small room. The room was too small, and there was very little light in the room. The bathroom sink was clogged. As there was no parking, they charged 28 dollars + tax to park it in the street....

            • Single
              6.6

              The principle of a boutique hotel....but maybe it shall focus on a more effective service towards clients...like brands

              The location in fact is not the best one as around there is nearly nothing you can reach by foot as downtown is a "dead" area (from a european point of view I have to say) service is ok but more focus shall be done towards quick and good quality service, it is a bit too laid back for me. And not having flat tv is not acceptable nowadays...really !

              5.8

              While the Valet/Door Staff were excellent, the Front Desk people were uninterested at best. It seemed to be a bother for them to stop surfing the Internet to answer simple questions. Very surprising.

              8.8

              Nice hotel in downtown Houston. Good value, but a noisy place (wedding parties and bar). Extras are very pricey (valet and mini-bar). Location is very good with great places to eat and drink within a few blocks walk.

              Too much noise from late night partying.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Nice view, very comfortable beds and covers, very nice lobby, complementary shuttle, mini bar, very nice staff professional but not all up tight very nice and funny people.

              I got charged twice on my card but yalls system says only got charged once, still waiting on my bank to post it is still pending, and the tvs made me feel as if I were in a motel.

              Horrible room - no view, to close to street - noisy, small

              The restaurant service was kind of slow and they really don't anticipate your needs . We have to ask for napkins ,butter(for toast )water, no tsp. to stir yourcoffee .That. day I guess is hectic....

              This was our 2nd stay. I will stay again , and again. I really like everything the Hotel has to offer. I have recommended to my friends and family.

              Loved it all the way around!!!
