Good stay!
The elevator was pretty slow and parts of the hotel were extremely hot/stuffy (and we had to wear masks the entire time) but other than that it was an overall great stay! Highly recommend to anyone that wants to experience downtown Houston for a weekend.

The best staff
I loved this hotel so much! All the staff was great from the Valet guys to the front counter ladies. I really appreciated them following up on my request to a top floor. I give this hotel a 10/10.
Mayra, us2 night family trip
Fair 4.0 unable to make customers happy
Being that this hotel was in the center of downtown, my expectations were really high. Hotel exterior and hotel lobby was beautiful and staff was really great. Up until my family and I got to our room, we were really bummed out how small the room was and had no idea how close we were going to be to the elevator. I requested another room but unfortunately they were booked so we tried to get past those issues. But as the night progressed, the entire night was so noisy, we constantly heard the elevator opening throughout the night, walls are very thin in that room, at one point I stood out waiting for the elevator while my wife and toddler were in the shower and can clearly hear every word they were saying and doing! I must to have been about 2 rooms down but literally felt as if they had the doors wide open. and also the constant "thump" we heard all night long. We were so confused where that noise was coming from. Not sure if it was construction being done or if it was coming from the elevator shaft. Maybe if we had gotten another room that was not so close to the elevator we could have had a different experience but unfortunately we got stuck with this. This is the second straight Hotel where we had a problem booking through and I think after this they just lost a customer.

Fair 4.0
Too noisy, there’s not enough privacy between rooms. I heard 4 alarms beginning at 5 am!! And you can easily hear when people is walking on the aísle. I think that for the price I can find a better place to stay
