        It was pretty tough to spot at night

        The room was amazing. Room and bath were large and very luxurious. I'd expect to pay three times as much for a room like this. Lobby bar is classy a reasonably priced. Great weekday happy hour specials.

        No ice machine on floor.

        Fitness Center - comfortable bed - location

        Expensive restaurant - $28 daily parking fee!

      • Single

        Distinctive room design, but comfortable - not merely design, for design's sake. Loved the folding louvered shutters that opened the jacuzzi tub to the bedroom - not only visually interesting, but it allowed you to watch TV from the jacuzzi tub. Room was spacious and had decent work area. Would go back in a heartbeat.

        Ice only available by room service - took 25 minutes for ice to be delivered at 10pm, when I was trying to settle down and get to bed. Minor issue, though - the rest of the service was excellent. Room service lunch was delivered right on time.

        The design was incredible.

        When I arrived, the room i had chosen (king with jacuzzi) was accidentally given to someone else, they gave me the Penthouse suite. I was grateful, but the A/C was not working and the whole suite was extremly cold. I tried to adjust the A/C but it did not work. They ended up giving me a regular room since that is all they had available.

        The pick-up from the downtown bus station to the hotel was sweet. The staff were nice and the room was gorgeous.

        Bathroom is huge and comfortable.

        No icemachine. Had to request ice and tip for each delibvery.

        Room was clean and comfortable, and the staff was great! I thought the shuttle service was convenient and made our stay more comfortable.

        Lots of homeless people around the street of hotel, as long as you take the shuttle it doens't really matter.

      • Single
        8.8

        Staff were very friendly and helpful. Lounge is very nice. Breakfast at the restaurant was good but quite pricey. Hotel was extremely clean and had very little mold/mildew, which plagues even 4 & 5 star hotels in Houston.

        The pillows were not great and the restaurant was too expensive for extended business stays (French toast + coffee + OJ + tip = $25).

      • Single
        9.6

        The bathrooms are fabulous! The whirlpool tub was great after a hard day at work.

        I don't think there is a pool which is odd.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The hotel is beautiful - loved the room decor and all of the nice touches.

        We asked the valet if he could round up a cab for us as the restaurant we were going to was over 3 miles away -- he said they would drive us - which was nice, but the location ended up being over 4 miles away and they seemed put out -- which made us feel bad -- which is why I wish they just got us a cab in the first place.

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        The room was good and the bed was very comfortabe. Mini bar and coffee machine well stocked.

        There is no outside patio area to sit and have a drink. As a smoker the only place is in the garage. Not good enough.
