Located near the vibrant shopping and dining found at the Houston Galleria (they even provide a free shuttle to the mall), this Marriott property provides a comfortable place for families to stay while visiting Houston. An indoor pool and onsite dining at its new 17 Fifty Bistro can be enjoyed when not exploring the city. Guest rooms feature one king bed with a sitting area of two double beds. A Concierge level, located on an upper floor, features lounge access with complimentary breakfast, hors d’oeuvres, desserts and non-alcoholic beverages. However, the lounge is only open Sunday through Thursday and seems to target business travelers. Concierge Lounge Access Rooms are larger guest rooms with one kind bed and a sofa bed. Complimentary Wi-Fi is featured only in the lobby and public areas; in-room Internet is an additional fee. Parking, both self and valet, is also at an additional fee.

My husband and I attended a two-day conference here. The hotel, grounds, staff were all amazing. We ate lunch at their Bistro in the lobby. The food was excellent, portions large enough to split and well priced. We enjoyed fried avocado chips with chipotle sauce and split a fried chicken sandwich. The conference rooms were exceptional. The awards dinner banquet meal delicious. Session breakout rooms and vendor area - all comfortable and accessible. We had one issue with unexpected billing and the front desk staff resolved it immediately. The room was lovely. Only detractor was late night freeway noise as the hotel are located across the feeder from the West 610 Loop. Fitness center, pool - all clean, well maintained areas. Staff was professional and courteous from housekeeping on up.

The beds are always comfy and the gym is well equipped. But the concierge lounge is my favorite part of this hotel. The food is always appetizing and there is always a delicious spread. Compliments to the chef and Amber for always providing excellent customer service.
