This us one of the nicest hotels we've had the pleasure of staying at! We booked a "suite", which had a queen bed, sofa sleeper, full sz kitchen, stocked w/dishes. The room was like staying in a luxury apt. Immaculately clean, & tastefully decorated. Everyone of the staff was exceptionally warm, friendly & always smiling! All of them! It was... More

I loved everything about this Hotel from the spacious living space to the equipped kitchen. Very large closet,TV in both rooms ,very clean and quite.

In general enjoyed staying in this hotel while in Houston - spacious rooms, good breakfast, very convenient location. Not giving it 5 stars because of minor inconveniences: (1) breakfast area in my opinion was inadequately small - contributing to some crowding (2) in the suite room there's only one AC unit for both bedroom and the living area - causing...

With my job I have stayed in many hotels for almost 30 years (just about every week), and aside from that in my personal travel life I am also a Silver member with Marriott.

This was my first booking at this hotel. It was a pleasent experience for the entire stay. The only reason they didnt get the 5 stars is because our room had a foul smell (somewhat like urine). I checked the beds for stains but the smell came from the closet. It wasn't pleasent but it was bearable. I still bought... More

Stayed two nights at this Residence Inn. Great room with full kitchen. I really enjoyed the breakfast which was much more than just eggs and toast (the fresh fruit was a plus). We had the complimentary "dinner" on a Monday night, and the chicken, rice and fresh salad was good (big plus with free beer and wine). The pool area... More

Stayed here in June 2014 for a few nights with friends. We had a 2 double bedroom booked and got complimentary upgraded to a suite which was very kind and much appreciated! Breakfast was nice and all staff were helpful and friendly. Nice establishment! Will stay again.

I booked this hotel via an online website and got a great deal for last minute booking. For the price, the hotel was well worth it.

We stayed one night in a one-bedroom suite at this RI because the hotel is convenient to the Medical Center. The weekday rate is $279 plus tax, however, we used 15,000 Marriott Rewards points for our stay. The pay-rate is much less for Friday & Saturday night stays. I mention price because I believe for that price, one should expect... More
