It’s all just lipstick, really...
Stayed here for consult at MDA, so location is very good, albeit kind of tricky to detect and enter off Main. Well, they sure are trying...but only superficially. If there is a phrase to describe this property, it would be, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but in the end...it’s still a pig.” A lot of energy has apparently gone into how to dress this place up, but virtually no thought in to how to bring its bones up to user demand. Example? Just got a call (6:30p) that there would be no water tonite as they “...had to work on the boiler.” ...and that’s just the start... The elevator has been out of order for two days and they haven’t even put an “Out of Order” sign up! ...and they’re still putting people on the third floor. THIS IS A TEXAS MEDICAL CENTER area hotel...think about it. No hot water this morning, and that’s right, sports fans...it’s probably the boiler! Come on...HOT FREAKING WATER!? No luggage rack in any room...or even a closet! Just some cutesy cage thing with 5 hangers...cheezy to the max. Outdoor windows are all fogged...permanently: old double glazed bombers that should have been replaced years ago. Bathroom door won’t even latch...your business night as well be in the middle of the room. They do have a good breakfast...when they keep it stocked. The RE-decoration makes it a Rrally cute place, but it’s still a $60/night property...the lipstick doesn’t make up for not paying enough time and money on its infrastructure to justify its rates and rating

Great Hotel
This is my second time staying here and once again, it was great stay. My friend and I went to Rodeo and the location was so convenient. We could easily walk to NRG Stadium. It was easy to check in and out with friendly staff and nice rooms!!
