Exceptional 10.0
Great bar and bartender!
What a charming place to stay. I usually stay at Comfort Suites across the road, but this place has a full bar! Would love to stay here again!

Our go to hotel in Houston
Always stay there on our trips to Houston for medical appointments. Very convenient location to all our needs. Hotel staff is always very welcoming and helpful. Rooms very comfortable and clean. Parking lot well lit, always feel safe going in and out.
Sandra, us1 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Took care of their customers
Hotel was very nice and trendy. Check in was fine. But our room had a horrible mildew smell. Went to the front desk and asked for another room and they took care of us. Got us another room with no smell. Breakfast was great. Started out rough but ended up being a good trip in the end.
Krystal, us1 night business trip
Fair 4.0
Too expensive what you get!
The room was decorated so cute, but it was all a mask for the bad upkeep of the room! They put me in the room right above the bar on the 2nd floor, that looks out onto the lobby. The music was so loud, even on a Tuesday! I was there for family in the hospital, this just stressed me out more! The shower rail was broken, there was no towel rack, new caulk was sloppily applied over the old moldy caulk, there were huge holes in the wall at the baseboards, the plugs were exposed and plug covers missing by the bed. I was also freaked out by the tablet set up on the night stand. It was supposed to be for convenience of auto coffee maker, alarm, etc, but there was no way to turn it off. It had a camera and microphone I didn’t trust! Overall, I would not recommend this hotel at all! Please beware. The convenience of being by the hospital is not worth the money.
