Chose this hotel for a week-long business trip to Houston as it was the most economical downtown option. Due to a booking glitch, I ended up taking a junior suite instead of a standard room.
What I liked: Convenient location - 5 mins walk to the convention center & Toyota Center, and 10-15 mins walk to Minute Maid Park as well as most downtown shopping and eating places. Helpful and friendly staff. Spacious and quiet rooms with good facilities (fridge, microwave), cleaned daily. Standard breakfast for HIE but nice touch with the milk and cookies every afternoon. Small pool - good for kids.
What could be improved (if possible): Area around the hotel was very isolated after dark. Hotel looked dated in some areas (elevators, exterior). No in-room safe. Public transportation a little sparse and unpredictable, especially on weekends. Carpet felt a little damp when I arrived, not sure if that was due to a recent cleaning.
