I just stayed at the Houstonian Hotel and Spa and got engaged while i was there. I was torn between staying at Hotel Granduca or this hotel and stopped by for a tour of each the week before. Hotel Granduca was newer and nicer, but the service, the beautiful grounds, and the opportunity to pop the question at the gazebo in the courtyard were what sealed it for me. The level of service provided by Daniel Eekele was outstanding. He gave me a complete tour of the hotel on my initial scouting visit and went the extra mile to show me all the hotel ammenities. When i explained the the purpose of my visit, he told me that they could reserve the gazebo for me and set it up nicely for the big event. That sold me on the Houstonian. Leading up to checkin that day i was in contact with Daniel to make sure everything was good to go and that the weather was cooperating (a storm passed through about an hour after, so things were dicey). When I arrived after dinner, my future fiance and i went for a walk in the courtyard to the gazebo where i proposed. Everything was perfect and Daniel came by with perfect timing to take a few pictures for us. Hats off to Daniel E. for making our stay at the Houstonian outstanding! The only thing that kept me from giving a 5 star review was that the bed wasn't quite as comfortable as we'd have liked it to be - good, but not great. Overall, highly recommend the hotel.
