The Whitehall Houston, Houston
You never know til you try it
We LOVED the lobby, restaurants and service. Although, the room and beds were small. The room was also damp and humid, like the a/c could not keep up. The lobby was not this way. The pool area could use an update and good cleaning. The poolside furniture was dirty and ripped. The pool are is definitely NOT what the website picture portrays. I realize this is an old hotel, but rooms and pool just need an update.

If you like nice hotels, this isn't for you
If you're a hotel snob or just like to stay in nice hotels, this isn't the hotel for you. From the website and reviews, I thought it was going to be nice, but it wasn't. Also, it's a very small room for Houston. I've had a bigger bathroom in NYC. The hotel needs a better renovation; without shortcuts. And, this hotel is far from the convention center.

Beautiful facility. Nice and helpful front desk staff. Great pool area, very clean
Dawn, us1 night trip
The Whitehall Houston, Houston
The hotel is beautiful and very clean inside. I booked a room with two queen beds but they only had a room with one king available. We made it work. The pool area was the big disappointment. The bottom and sides of the pool are very rough, the concrete in the outdoor area is super rough on your feet and hurts to walk on and we had to ask four times for towels.
