Needed hotel close to wedding & this was convenient, easy to park, clean, and a good price. Plenty of space in room. Delivered consistent Marriott quality. With a little more personal touch at check-in could have been a 5 rating. Easy to get to from Reliant Stadium using Buffalo Speedway.

We arrived over 4 hours before check in time, but they had our room ready for us. Front desk staff was very warm and welcoming. The studio room was nice-- however, things could have been a bit cleaner- lots of hair on the couch pillows. Breakfast was also very average- only sugared cereals and the eggs tasted powdered. Potatoes had...

Very nice, very clean, stylish and modern. My room looked just like the pictures. I was concerned bc they had just remodeled that I would get an older room. But it was perfect. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, serving dishes, and a couple of pots and pans. Also a dishwasher and condiments. The fridge is small but plenty...

Room was spotless, bed was comfortable, and feather pillows delightful. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, and the shuttle driver Arnold was a wealth of information, in addition to being a safe driver and getting me to my appointments timely. Good restaurants nearby, and a grocery if you don't want to go out. Very convenient to have breakfast...

easy location. close to Rice and hospitals. neighborhood is questionable. rooms are quite spacious, but dated, and could use a thorough cleaning. breakfast was nice, with quite a few options. i'd have to think twice about staying here again.

I had a business/ sales trip to attend in Houston. We had an event around the corner so I opted to stay with the Marriot Chain. I ended up with a large, large room for the regular rate.

The hotel is well situated, and the staff is very friendly. But overall the property is a bit dated, and the room itself was mediocre. It had that musty smell of an old hotel room that desperately needs to be aired out. The bed was loud and creaky. We were there for only one night so it wasn't worth changing...

It was our first time bringing our kids to houston & also their first time in a hotel. They loved the breakfast (was too much to choose from...lol), & the pools.

We spent three nights at the Residence Inn and were quite satisfied. The 2-room suite was spacious, though we would have preferred a king to a queen-sized bed. The kitchen was well-equipped if you plan to eat in. The AC was a bit noisy but performed adequately. The entire place was clean and bright. There is a small but adequate...

The hotel was okay until I found a dead roach on the bath room floor. It was the last night of my stay. Check in was quick and the friendly staff. The hotel was in a good location to restaurants. The pool area was nice, wish they had bigger towels in the pool area.
