Upscale hotel for sure. All food was top notch no disappointments there. My home state Texas hospitality was much appreciated. Drinks were very pricey. No coffee in rooms was kinda of a pain. Loved the place, even with the nickel and dime philosophy.
Was told by the expedia representative that I needed to book the room because it was the only one remaining. It turns out that I was only one of two people at the hotel. All the remaining rooms were vacant. My car was the only one in the parking lot the second night. Do not expect this to be a top rated hotel but it is adequate and takes very good security measures at the hotel and parking. The location is kind of isolated for being within walking distance of MD Anderson Medical facilities and it seems to be located in a less desirable area of town.
It would a bit helpful if the staff would tell you about or give you a brochure about the amenities of the hotel. Place a brochure in the room at least. Ex. Location of ice, vending machines, hours of restaurant
Stayed here for a conference at the medical center. Compared to the alternatives:
1. It is 15min walk from medical center, the alternatives will be actually on the campus.
2. It is at least half the price of the hotels on the campus.
3. It is in a nice quiet environment, with palm trees and a residential neighborhood. The alternatives are big glass boxes.
4. Rooms have a full kitchen with refrigerator, stove and kitchen sink. Perfect for extended stays.
Located near Texas Medical Center. Close to Rice University, downtown, Convention Center, shopping and restaurants.More
Visible for miles amid Houston's flat terrain, the Texas Medical Center is the world's largest, with 49 institutions on 1,000 acres. Simply put: the best and brightest practice medicine here, and patient rosters often include heads of state and royalty. Also a cultural hub, the area's oak-shaded boulevards lead to the Museum District, Hermann Park, Houston Zoo, Reliant Stadium, and the Astrodome.
