Feels like staying at a friends house!
My husband has been going through chemo with MDAnderson since July. This is now our go to hotel whenever we need one. We’ve stayed in A LOT of hotels in the area. High end - discounted - middle of the road - this one beats them all in my opinion. I love the outlets in the headboards, the “at home” feeling, def the comp breakfast, best hotel in the area for your money for sure!!

Family stay
Great little hotel. Prices are very good and it’s an easy walk to NRG arena. Bar service was great and rooms are clean and a good size. I would definitely come back

fun styling, spacious rooms
We’ve stayed here previously and are likely to again. Spacious rooms (king + two queen configs, beds good), front desk staff has always been great. We asked if they might have a HDMI cable for us to use for a few hours – and someone in the back immediately found one – we were quite pleased. Fun décor overall. The only negative we have is one that I’d hoped they’d fixed, but alas no: We all have a hard time with no bedside lamp, only fluorescent lighting in the room (interestingly, the first room we checked into had one normal bedside lamp between the two queens, but we had to move bc the heater had been left on high full blast and we worried the room would not cool off quickly enough before bed time. Looking at the hotel photos -one shows no proper bedside lamp and one shows a bedside lamp). In our opinion the breakfast is on the lower end of free continental hotel breakfasts in terms of quality, but we expect this from lots of free breakfasts and are happy to have the ability to have some cereal and milk. We walked across the street to the “ Kolache Factory” which has Czeck pastries -something different and quite yummy. There are a slew of last/casual food places in easy walking distance. There’s a grocery store and several pharmacies in super close proximity. There is a nice looking bar (we don’t use it, so that’s all we can say) The extended bar area is where one eats breakfast which is a big/pleasant enough space to a good place to sit outside of one’s room.
