Great value and experience

Posted 27-Apr-2016
Pros: Beautiful grounds, friendly staff, very comfortable rooms.
Cons: Lobby was pretty cold. Maybe turn down the AC.
Location: Convenient to get and lots of shopping a mile or two down the road with the Galleria district.
The Houstonian may not be the cheapest hotel in the area, but I believe it's the best. It's still a great value when you look at the service, amenities, and location. The grounds make it a wonderful oasis in a busy part of the city. Everything is kept up immaculately and is first class. The rooms have everything you could need for a comfortable stay. I loved walking the beautiful and easy to walk path around the grounds each morning and seeing/hearing all the birds. I didn't use the pool areas, but they are gorgeous and spacious. Highly recommended hotel.

Nice Hotel

Posted 24-Apr-2016
Hotel is very nice. High end finishes. Friendly staff. Bed was comfortable. There was some noise both from other guests and maintenance of grounds. Amenities are exceptional. Food in restaurants was also very good.

Classic Houston hotel in park-like setting

Posted 09-Apr-2016
Pros: The classic elegant old Houston style and the excellent professional staff.
Cons: The mattresses on the bed was not the most comfortable, a little hard. Good pillows though. The temperature in the biz meeting rooms was too cold.
Location: Very convenient to the Galleria shopping and near many of Houston's great restaurants and sights. Downtown is just 15 mins away.
Stayed one night to attend a meeting held the next day. Dined at in-house restaurant, The Olivette, where the wine list and the meal were excellent and the service was very good. The attractively decorated rooms are very quiet with a forest view out the windows. It is hard to imagine you are in the middle of a major city here. The room was very clean and there was nice turndown service. The room was adequately lighted and there were outlets to charge electronics. There were nice pillows on the bed and the linens were crisp and new-looking. Check in and Check Out were a breeze. The front desk verified my expenses and gave me a print out of my charges.

Warm and welcomming

Posted 16-Mar-2016
Pros: Just about everything.
Cons: I really can't think of anything. We stayed on the concierge floor and the service was friendly and helpful. The food was great.
Location: Great location near the Galleria. They even have limousine service within three miles of the hotel.
This is our favorite hotel in Houston. It is removed from the intense activity of the area. It is beautifully landscaped and wonderfully serene. From the valet greeting us when we arrive, to everyone working here, they are friendly, helpful and thoughtful. One of my all time favorite place to stay.

Very well looked after

Posted 07-Mar-2016
Fantastic hotel with extremely helpful & friendly staff. Car to the Galleria mall was brilliant with lovely drivers. Nothing was too much trouble & made you feel like a VIP. Only slight downside was the size of our bathroom, quite small but room very spacious.

We stop at the Houstonian every year on our way to ski and my 2 teenage boys just love it. We love the location, the food and the workout facilities. My kids especially love the basketball court!
