I stayed one night for business. After an initial check in mishap I found my room to be pleasant and modern, comfortable and pretty fresh (not always the case with courtyards...). Staff were pleasant and the hotel had an extensive fitness center, better than one typically sees at Courtyards. The hotel is part of a complex with a Residence inn...

The room was very nice and the beds were comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff. Stayed here for an Astro baseball game. Perfect location. We walked to a great restaurant they recommended; then walked to the stadium. Cab ride back to hotel after game was only $6.00. I will definitely stay here if going to Minute Maid park or other...

Did I mention location - perfect for downtown! Easy access from the highway. Usual high standard from Courtyard - Marriott. Room - spacious, comfortable and clean. Nice and quiet up on the 7th floor. Excellent customer service! Would definitely use again... Highly recommended.

I recently had two separate stays at this hotel on a business trip. I found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone I encountered was enthusiastic and welcoming. The location of the hotel is pretty good, it's within walking distance of the stadiums and a light rail runs outside. Food options in the neighborhood are limited at night...

Platinum premier member. Reservations made a few weeks earlier. Called early in the afternoon to say I would be arriving around 1 AM due to late flights. When I arrived I did not have a room. Extremely frustrating at 1:00 in the morning. I was put up in another hotel twice as far from the office.

I stayed at the Courtyard Houston Downtown for 2 nights during the week for business. I thought the location was great with plenty of shops and restuarants in walking distance. The hotel was also very nice, updated and clean. Also the hotel staff was very friendly.

I would call the whole experience pretty average and what you would expect; this is by no means a criticism because the hotel met exceptions. The staff was friendly and the room was decently sized and clean. The location is really good with a mall right across the street and the rail right on the street. If you're staying her,...

I have tried to stay for business before, but rooms are always too expensive. Finally stayed for a personal trip, and enjoyed the central location and proximity to bike share and light rail. Downtown is a mixed bag at night and on weekends, so you will probably come here for a specific reason, not to just hang out and explore...

This is my favorite hotel to stay at in downtown Houston on business. The rooms are big and clean. The gym is impressive for a business hotel. The location is good for business, but I would probably recommend somewhere else for other purposes. It's very quiet nearby the hotel at night (i.e., almost no nightlife). The breakfast service is quick...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Old-style luxury and state-of-the-art technology converge at the recently-updated Courtyard Houston Downtown hotel just a 10-minute walk from the George R. Brown Convention Center. A true stand-out among downtown Houston hotels for our historical ambiance housed in the 1921 Humble Oil Building's neo-classical exterior with newly-renovated rooms equipped with modern amenities. Guests enjoy in-room perks such as free WiFi and HDTVs. The gem of our historic building is our renovated Presidential Suite. Originally the office to the Humble Oil CEO, we've updated this stunning suite with stylish furnishings while keeping the original marble fireplace. The highlight of our lobby experience is The Bistro. Eat. Drink. Connect., Which offers guests food and beverage selections in the morning and new dinner service. Our downtown Houston hotel is within walking distance or a free shuttle ride to Minute Maid Park, Convention Center and Toyota Center. A short ride on the Metro Light Rail takes you to NRG Park and the Museum District. ... more   less
