As an alternative to the more upscale places around the area, Holiday Inn Express is a value for money choice. It is only one block away from the main places and they offer free parking. The rooms are relatively large and clean. Breakfast is above average for the hotel type. It would be even better if it was not served...

This is my second stay- the room was clean, the microwave and mini-frig are bonus. The gym is compact but the equipment all works, and don't forget a swimsuit for the nice indoor pool and hot tub. Your business account will go further here and yet you are still near all the same venues as the larger chain hotels. Service...

First off, the rooms are neat and tidy. Nothing bad to say about that. Breakfast however is served on plastic plates, with plastic cutlery. Nothing in the hotel is recycled. Not the appropriate way forward in the age of plastic pollution and climate change!

The facility was good for a reasonable price and located close enough to main downtown are to walk without having to fool around with parking. Staff was courteous and helpful. Valet parking is somewhat expensive.

If you need to stay downtown in Houston, this is a reasonably good choice. From the front you're just a block from the Toyota center. But the best thing is probably the free parking with in/out privileges, a huge bonus so close to downtown. Unless you like paying $25 per day? The room itself was spacious and fairly comfortable, with...

Quick weekend trip went very smoothly. And the hotel wasn't bad either! Actually, very good. Stayed on an upper floor and the shower had good water pressure. Believe that! Breakfast had a wide assortment of goods and the cookies in the evening were delicious. The clincher for me was "free parking" in a downtown Houston hotel. You say "no way."...
