Very Good8.0
Used Professional Drunkards on the ProAm Tour.
I needed a place to stay, within stumbling distance of the bars on Main Street and Market Square. I left my car with their valet, checked in and walked off to celebrate with no worries. I guess I have stayed here about half a dozen times, starting back when it was called "The Alden". It used to be cheaper than a taxi ride home and another in the morning, to pick up my car. Prices have gone up considerably the last three or four years.

Bathroom is not made for travellers, there is no place to set a bag or anything. After our first night our do not disturb sign disappeared, so we asked for one at the front desk, which they could not give us for some reason. After being gone all day at baseball games, come back to room with a do.not disturb in on our door. So room was not cleaned, no towels,etc, so back down to desk to get towels and of course they could only find 1. This at 12:30 at night and we have to leave at 5:30 am for early flight. No one seems to know anything about the area either but now we know Houston is known for its homeless population and would probably not stay in this area of town if we ever come back.

Very Chic Boutique Hotel in the Heart of Downtown Houston. Not too far from Market Square Park. A block away from Prohibition where you can see a burlesque show, drink gin out of a bathtub and eat $1 Oysters that were delicious and fresh(I survived to write this review). The decor is super trendy and sleek. Definitely a small gem!

Wonderful, service-oriented hotel
Our return to New York from Mexico during a snowstorm resulted in an overnight stay in Houston at the Sam Houston Hotel. The warmth and kindness of the staff was incredible. As city travelers, the location in downtown Houston was great for exploring the old city and its distinctive landmarks. The hotel itself is a National Register-listed property.
