Rooms were good sized and clean and the staff welcoming.

A few improvements would be welcome particularly the gym which was a major disappointment. Either shut it down or spend a few grand to make it functional. No free weights, towels or water. Two of the three cardio machines are broken and there is only one small apparatus with a few attachments for weight training.

The plumbing in our room was a bit patchy with the need to flush multiple times. There is a shuttle bus but not much in the area apart from supermarkets and fast food outlets.

Funky boutique hotel. I found the staff to be helpful and friendly. We were at M. D. Anderson for tests and the shuttle was a godsend. The friendly driver took us for appointments and to restaurants in the area. Room was large, clean and the bed was comfortable . We enjoyed our stay.

Hotel Ylem is a refreshing gem!
The decor is fun, artistic and inspiring. Love the vintage style mini fridge and antique chest set up in rooms.
Great Linen and comfortable beds!
Will definitely stay again.

Was in a business trip for two weeks in Houston and was booked at Hotel Ylem near Medical Center. Very disappointed with hotel! Bad dark gloomy rooms, old and broken bathroom fittings, plaster feeling off, staff not very engaged, only positive was the good breakfast and probably cheaper rates than neighbourhood hotels

I understand this used to be a Holiday Inn Express that has been converted into an attempt at a boutique hotel. We stayed there a couple of nights and it was clean, comfortable bed, normal free breakfast, and was basically fine if you are not looking for something more. It is very close to NLP stadium and within walking distance of several restaurants.
