“Concert at Minute Maid”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2011

Took grandkids to a concert at Minute Maid and wanted a hotel within walking distance. Did not feel unsafe walking back after the concert ended around 11:30 PM. The hotel was typical Holiday Inn. The room was a little frayed around the edges with a really worn and dirty carpet, but breakfast was good. An added plus was nearby Discovery Green where the kids played in the park the next morning. The room was quiet even though the hotel is extremely close to I-45 and 59.

We wanted something close to the Toyota Center and this works........but it is also just minutes from major freeways AND close to most downtown attractions. Great location. The place was also very clean and well kept with a spacious lobby. It was also in a very open location with police stopping in for breakfast every morning and coffee all day long. Clean and Safe. The rooms were large enough that our family felt comfortable all the time. No one had to move around if somebody else moved. They also had cookies and milk everyday at 4, nice gesture. But what saved us $40 every morning was the hot breakfast. I don't eat breakfast except on vacation. Every day I had cereal, bacon or sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy and either french toast or waffles. We left every day fortified. The staff was friendly and helpful. I don't ask a lot of a place, but this one surpassed my creature comfort requirements. Oh yeah there is a small indoor pool that others used and looked like fun and a small exercise room, but that's not what we were there for.

All the other hotels were booked near where I needed to be on other side of downtown. Hotel was in an unsafe neighborhood. Room carpet looked dirty so didn't take my shoes off. Bathtub drain was clogged so I was standing in 6 inches of water before my shower was done.

off the lobby at the Holiday Inn express, so we know the wi-fi, which is fast and free, is up and running. I just finished a delicious and complimentary breakfast and I'm relaxing with a cup of coffee waiting for my travel companion wake and join me for a day of sight seeing in Houston and the surrounding area. The facility is up to if not exceeding the high standards I'm used to when staying at Holiday Inns. My friend and I enjoyed a evening at Discovery Green and dinner at the Grove last night and had no issues walking the two, maybe two and a half blocks back to the hotel at 9:00P.M. Given the rates and overall performance of facility and staff my opinion is you can't do better for your vacation dollars.

While planning for a four-day non-business event, I reserved this HI-Express primarily because it offers free parking in spite of its downtown location. It was nice to pull in and without fail, access plenty of ground-level parking, one lot in front of the hotel and another fenced and gated behind. Easy walking distance to the Toyota Center and George Brown Convention Center. We never felt any more concerned for our safety on this end of downtown than we did anywhere else in the city. True to the brand, staff was genuinely helpful and responsive. We needed a roll-away bed one night, and it was available in spite of a very full house. Extra pillows and towels also provided with a smile and upon request. Warm cookies, lemonade and ample tasty breakfast offerings also were true to brand. Hotel is beautiful and updates were in progress. Workers were painting rooms and replacing furnishings. We didn't use the pool or hot tub, but the area looked very nice -- natural stone waterfall and decking,lovely poolside furniture, all which may be brand new updates considering earlier guest comments. There were a few untidy areas, but I'm giving them a mulligan because it seemed related to work in progress. Occasionally on a non-smoking floor, I could smell smoke in the hallways. But in general, an overall pleasant stay and a good value for a downtown hotel. After all, they're all pricey but free parking is a big plus.
