Pros: Room was nicely equipped and clean. I appreciated the USB charging ports and motion sensing floor lighting. Breakfast in the restaurant was very good
Cons: Expensive parking. Small room. Low water pressure in the shower. Toilet too low to the ground. Safe would not work using the directions provided.
Location: Galleria
Overall, enjoyed our stay. We brought our 2 toddlers and were happy. The pool needs to be enclosed. Too wind and cold. I expect is too hot in the summer

Perfect Get-A-Wau

5 out of 5
by from McAllen, TX
Posted Feb 9, 2017
Pros: Affordable, Clean, Safe, Great View
Cons: Free parking would be a plus... we stayed two nights and it was 44 dollars for parking.
Location: It is located in downtown Houston close to everything.
I chose this hotel because it had great reviews. I was expecting a nice hotel but I was surprised by how great it was. The room was cozy, quiet and had a great view. We even went for a swim at night... it was 40 degrees but that did not matter because the pool was heated. We were given a complimentary breakfast and the staff was friendly and courteous. I will be staying here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone. Excellent!

Everything Costs a lot!!

Posted Feb 5, 2017
Pros: The staff were very nice and were ready provide meals at all hours of the day or night.
Cons: When you pay this much for a hotel, at least breakfast needs to be included with the room. Parking should be free.
Location: This was on the east side of downtown Houston near the Galleria shopping mall. That is all I know.
I am used to getting a nice hotel that provides a nice breakfast as part of the room rate. I am also used to not being charged for parking. This hotel, some 22 floors tall, charged for everything. All meals were $20 or more, but included 20% gratuity. The meals were not of better quality than at any other hotel I have stayed.

Pros: Classy environment
One major problem with room service on third morning. Ordered waffles with bacon for one and eggs Benedict for another. They delivered waffles and bacon but no syrup and no eggs Benedict. Thirty minutes later they brought syrup and eggs Benedict but no silverware. To top it off the salt and pepper shakers were filled beyond top of shakers and unable to shake loose either salt or pepper without removing top of shakers.
