Beautiful Downtown Houston hotel
The Westin Houston Downtown is a beautiful hotel, nicely decorated, nice ambiance and the staff is excellent from the valets to the front desk to the wait and housekeeping staff.
My room was on the second floor with a view of the lobby/atrium - which was nice, the only downside is you don't get any natural light - since the windows are tinted and the lobby lighting is subdued.
The rooms are nicely appointed - the mattress is so comfortable, I was even told I didn't snore - so there must be something to either the mattress or the pillows - I'll have to find out what brand they use!
The hotel is very close to Minute Maid stadium - walking distance of a block or two and close to a couple of restaurants. The hotel restaurant is very good and reasonably priced for the amount of food they provide. There is also a coffee bar in the lobby which serves Starbucks products - if you need your fix.
It's also close to several highways - so getting to other parts of Houston and the airport are quick and easy. IAH is only @ a 25 minute ride.
Valet parking is $34.00 p/day plus tax - but I never had to wait for my car and the valets were excellent, helping me and three seniors get into and out of the car - sometimes four at a time!
Overall I give the Westin Houston Downtown high marks for location, service and style.
