too expensive for the room

The hotel was too expensive for what I paid for the room. Plus, we found dead roaches in the bathroom. When I complained the hotel manager suggested that we brought them in thru our luggage. I was very offended. The manager reduced the price by $30.00. Really!?!? She offended me then reduced the price by $30.00, not ok!!!!

This hotel provided great value for it's proximitey to the convention ctr.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
From arrival to departure the staff exuded a willingness to make my associate and myself welcome and comfortable. Even when everyones' keys were being electronically erased at the Convention Center causing abnormal use of the elevators and lines at the desk for rekeying they remained cheerful and on task. The full breakfast was excellent and the breakfast area was kept quite clean considering the heavy traffic of a sold out hotel. The room itself was well appointed and very clean, and spacious enough for two businessmen. The hotel even provided us with security for our luggage, at no charge, during our last day after checkout so that we did not have to take it with us to the convention ctr. I would definitely stay there again and recommend highly.

This hotel felt slightly outdated.

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
Cons: limited breakfast selection
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Downtown Convention Center in Houston. I was not aware of the age of the hotel, but it definitely felt older on the inside than it looked on the outside. The room was clean, but a newly refreshed room is more comfortable than an old one. I selected this hotel for it's proximity to downtown Houston, but now that I have stayed there once, I think I would be more inclined to look for a newer feeling hotel, even if it ends up being further from downtown.

All-in-all very nice

Desk help very friendly( a little touch & go as to new trainee not familiar with checkin) Had to explain it was prepaid, help came over & it went ok, til following morning when we got a bill under the door for balance due(which was the full amount) took to desk and they apologized and said we owe nothing. Room very clean, plenty of towels, soaps, etc. Breakfast was VERY good except sausage, it was terrible. Would stay there again.

Excellent stay

Booked this hotel online and hoped and prayed that it was ok. My prayers were exceeded. The hotel was super clean and just a few steps from the Toyota Center. The staff was always friendly and had extra touches like cookies and milk in the lobby and a wonderful breakfast buffet. There cannot be a better stay for your money in Houston Downtown.

hidden treasure

We stayed at a much higher priced hotel nearby for 2 nights before moving here. This room was equally as nice. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Very convenient to convention center (2 VERY SHORT blocks). Great breakfast buffet.
