Upscale Courtyard in a central SW Houston location
Posted Jan 4, 2017
This is a relatively new Courtyard high-rise (with above and underground parking) that is perfectly located in one of the most interesting and attractive close-in Houston neighborhoods. It is a 20-minute easy drive (if any drive in Houston can be called "easy") from Hobby Airport. You are walking distance (1.5 miles or less) from Rice University and Rice Village, the Museum District, Texas Medical Center, Hermann Park, shopping and restaurants. The hotel sits on a busy boulevard but is set back from the road. The lobby and bistro areas are bright and comfortable, plenty of tables for breakfast. Breakfast was included in our rate. If you do not want to pay for breakfast, there are fast food and bakery o-ptions nearby. We stayed during a quiet holiday period, so we can't vouch for the hotel during busy periods such as football season. They drawback for us for this type of hotel are the in-wall a/c systems that are noisy when running. We cooled the room off before going to sleep and turned off the system. In addition, our carpet had a nasty stain that should have been cleaned or replaced long before we arrived. We have family nearby and would definitely stay here on our next visit.
