I selected this hotel because it provided free transportation to an event I was attending. Being unfamiliar with Houston, I didn't check the proximity to the freeway before booking. If I stay here again, I will request a room away from the traffic noise that kept me awake during the night. I was also a little disappointed in the restaurant onsite. The food was so-so. I should have ventured out and looked for nearby restaurants but fatigue kept me from doing so. My problem, not theirs. The beds were comfortable and the bath towels nice.
I recently joined TripAdvisor because I wanted to be able to write a review for this hotel. I've stayed before and every time it gets better! We arrived with curbside valet and they were quick to see that we had important clothes for an event and helped me and my brother to our rooms and made sure everything was good before leaving us. The entire staff was friendly from John helping us because we forgot the cards, to Soojin making sure I didn't forget my brother's shoes that he forgot on his way out. Caryna and Sade made sure we had a care kit the following morning and Jennifer made our check-ins seamless. I would stay again and again. The location is great and from door to door service, everything from the bar outside and on 2nd floor was delicious, to valet, to greeting. I travel often to many different locations but this is local and one of my best stays
