I stayed here for a conference at the George R Brown Convention Center. The hotel is within walking distance of the convention center, just a few blocks. The initial appearance of the hotel may distract you from what lies inside, there is nothing wrong with the hotel- it was simply built in 1920. The check-in process was quick and easy....

I stayed here in April solo for an event at the convention center. Check in: Was greeted by a nice, albeit unprofessional looking, staff member. She asked for my room payment and I informed her that I already paid via Orbitz and thusly had to call Orbitz or else I would have had to pay extra. No elevators, only stairs....

We stayed here for 5 nights with a large group of students while attending an event at the George Brown convention center. It was a very quick walk over to the facility each morning which saved us a fortune in taxi or Uber fees. This is an old hotel but it was clean and the beds were comfortable and the...

For this hotel, I think the question really is: what counts for a good traveling experience?great facilities or great people? These two aspects are not suppose to be at odds with each other, they certainly don't go in tandem either. At Athens Hotel, according to my personal experience, hotel guests are guaranteed to have super nice nice people to welcome...

We stayed for 2 nights as we were attending a concert at HOB. The room was lovely and very functional. The kitchen was a great help as the grocery store was only a few blocks away. The place-ware and table made eating in a breeze. VERY close to the venues we were attending this trip. The rooftop patio was very...

Wow - I thought people in Texas were friendly! The customer service is probably the worst I've ever experienced. The toilet was clogged when I checked in - and was STILL clogged 14+ hours later. Shabby room, unfriendly service, attitude when I tried to get things fixed - I won't stay here again - and I'll tell everyone ELSE not...

This hotel is a NIGHTMARE to deal with. Avoid at all costs. Hotels.com randomly charged me in a foreign currency. They then cancelled and re-booked me. The hotel's system showed multiple cancellations instead of one. The agent from the hotel was less than helpful--all the information recorded in their system was wrong, except of course, the credit card number. I'm...
