Our hotel experience this past weekend at the Whitehall Hotel in Downtown Houston was a wonderful experience. As soon as we drove in to valet park, everyone was so helpful and friendly. Our room was very nice and comfortable, we were in room 1210, close to the elevator. The front desk staff, John Flores, and Jorge , were so helpful....

I liked this hotel. The staff were friendly, the room spacious and the food was great. I love Mexican food, so perhaps I'm biased?! The service was excellent and all the staff were really friendly. The breakfast service is fast and efficient but you never feel rushed. The Hotel is 4 minutes from my clients office and perfect for meetings....

We stayed here while in town for college visits. The hotel has a great central location. Staff is very friendly. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. A few parts of the hotel felt a little dated. We had a room with a bath and a half - this was pretty much useless since the half had a sink and a...

Revisiting of long acquaintance it was a pleasure to experience the pulse of downtown Houston from the vantage point that the Whitehall offers. Genuine hospitality, comfortable rooms, fantastic bedding and excellent dining. Sal and his staff from Mohamed at the Valet stand to Carmen at the desk all were at my service throughout my stay.

My partner and I have stayed here for 1 night and so far no complaints and LOTS of positive things to say! They have gorgeous lobby with a spiral staircase and faux water wall.

The hotel was extremely nice (a large room, pretty view). Breakfast was good at the restaurant and staff was friendly. Only downside was the outdoor pool which had leaves floating in it, kinda dirty. I especially want to praise Jorge Flores, the concierge who went above & beyond the call of duty from the moment I got there.

Stayed at hotel becasue my friends birthday party was in Midtown. What a great hotel. The staff is so friendly and the shuttle took us to the bar. We had a drink at the outdoor bar too on property, it was pretty cool. Didn't even know it was there. Breakfast was so good, very different menu.
