I met a friend in Houston to go to the Quilt Show at the George BrownConvention Center in downtown Houston in early November. Many of the hotels were charging $ 300.00 per night. We found the Athens Hotel Suites on line, read the reviews and booked it. The exterior is unassuming and the lobby isn't really a lobby but the... More

The only thing this hotel has going for it, is it's location. It was so bad, I left a day early because of the manager/owner's rudeness, parking, lukewarm water to bathe in, continental breakfast (what a laugh)...Came in to an overheated room, air conditioner was unplugged, the TV was unplugged, the water to the toilet was turned off and would...

We stayed here to attend a conference at the GRB convention center. The location was very convenient and the staff was very friendly. The rooms have microwaves and they provide all necessary utensils. It's close to a lot of really great places. We enjoyed our stay. Would recommend staying here if you're looking for a place in Downtown Houston.

This place is located conveniently in Houston, however the staff is beyond rude and the building is terrible. As good as the price was, I still feel like I over payed. I would definitely recommend the sidewalk as a better alternative than staying here.

Great location and price for downtown Houston. Super staff, very friendly and courteous. Nice, small, quiet Boutique Style Hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family!!! We will be back.

Booked for convenience to nearby concert venue. Found bed bugs and dirty sheets upon arrival. No refund offered since I had "already checked in." Staff reluctantly gave me back the copy of my drivers license they had on file. Sketchy and unhealthy facility. DO NOT STAY HERE.
