    Excellent staff and very comfortable 5 day stay. Close to the George R Bush convention center and great restaurants and metro access. Some homeless people on nearby streets, but we still felt safe walking the neighborhood? Felt valued and welcomed by all the staff.More

    Had a great stay over the Easter Holiday. Everyone on the staff was friendly and were able to help me when I needed it. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for a quick trip or for business travel.

    Here for a wedding! Great place! Service was good, breakfast was amazing. Would have liked to see queen beds instead of double beds but that's minor. Glad they were able to accommodate my pet at the last minute.

    I'm interested to know about the cleanliness of hotel as well as safety of surroundings as I have just read several less than glowing reviews on Google relating to cleanliness, staff issues, smells, soup kitchens and overrun area with less than desirable conditions/individuals. While all reviews and experiences are subjective...I have concerns and would like any feedback from recent guests if possible.
