Walking distance to the Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park. Easy to get to from I69. Staff members. were very friendly and helpful. Clean, modern hotel with free parking for a fair price. Breakfast is included. Our room was large, the bed was very comfortable and the shower was nice. We would definifely stay here again.

Very nice stay, accommodating and professional staff, addressed minor issue (coffee machine) immediately, fresh fruit and food and wine daily, lovely pool and fitness area. Loved refrig, micro., coffee maker (Keurig). Somewhat remote area of town but it was well lit and did not feel unsafe.

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."...

Good facilities and the great location make this Holiday Inn Express a site we will be visiting again. The facility is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The Toyota Center is a short walk down the street and the convention center appears to be within easy walking distance, too. The only drawback is the scarcity of good dining...

Brought teenagers for a concert. Venue was a 10 minute walk downtown. Very clean lobby with friendly staff. Rooms were great. The pool, even though we didn't get to swim, was beautiful. Warm cookies at 4 pm everyday with milk. Yum!

My room was VERY clean and I am VERY picky about hotel rooms! The front desk was friendly and accommodating related to an extra blanket and a late check out.
