Front desk was quite efficient. Restaurant attached to hotel was an asset. Shuttle to and from the airport an absolute treasure!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 could be different
I liked the room and comfortable place, everything clean and quiet, but i think you could have more than two people in the front desk with a nice smile, i had to wait for an hour to ask help because they were very busy with all your check in and check out, and no had a good service when needes a taxi. I had to wait more than an hour for it (i should take a taxi from the street) and in my arrive had to wait almost two hours to be picked up from your shuttle to the hotel. I as very very tired in this moment, and waiting isn´t nice.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rococox06 Be carefull when asking for Hotel Shuttle
I spent the week in Galveston and decided to change my last night to the Holiday Inn at the GB airport so avoid the long drive and morning traffic from galveston to houston. After I arrive at the Holiday Inn I asked the front desk about shuttle's to and from the airport. I was told that a Holiday Inn shuttle would pick up and drop off every half hour and that there was no need to call and let them know you were there. So idecided to go ahead and take my car back to the airport car rental the night before my flight, again to avoid the hassel of the morning rush at the airport car rental return and to save alittle bit of time. Prior to leaving the hotel, I again aske the front desk about shuttle from airport to hotel, and again was told that they would pick up every half hour. I then returned my car and went to the terminal and proceded to wait 45min with no sign of a Holiday Inn shuttle. I called the hotel and iwas told that the shuttle would be by soon and there was no need to give them my location or name becouse they always pivk up every half hour. After another 30 minutes had come and gone, I called back again, again I was told that the shuttle would be by very shortly. After another 15min I called the Hotel for the third time, this time with a less than friendly attitude. I again explained the situation and at that time they called the driver and gave him my name and terminal, I was then told he would be there with in 5 minutes. 15 minutes later a Holiday Inn shuttle finaly showed up and the driver asked me how long I had been waiting. I explained the whole story to him from the time I first went to the front desk. He then began to tell me that the thirty minute rule that they had explained to me several times, was not infact the case. The driver went on to tell me that I had to request the shuttle and give them time and location of terminal. Needless to say I spent Two hours trying to save one. It;s obviuos that the employees at this site do not communicate or understand what their shuttle pick up policy's are. So if you need a shuttle from the airport to the Hotel be sure to call ahead and let them know who you are and the terminal you are at and dont fall for the old "don't worry the shuttle comes by every thirty minutes" story.

So dirty I considered wearing my socks in the shower, then throwing them away. They were black anyway from walking around the room. What I though were cracks in the shower was actually hair. Only stayed here because someone booked me here for business travel. This hotel needs to take a class in cleanliness before return.

I like the property for its proximity to IAH airport. The room was comfortable and the staff was polite and helpful. The restaurant and bar on the premises was nice, the food was good and reasonably priced.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by eddie747 Room Condition and Housekeeping
This Hotel is OK however the room condition and the condition of the furniture is very poor. Housekeeping will miss cleaning rooms several times in my stay and their cleaning below standard. Although information went to the front desk but nothing was changed. The price and the food provided by good eats is a value added to the hotel.
Nevertheless the bed is comfortable however two things could improve the breakfast tickets and the internet password.
If you are a guest there were no need to keep getting tickets where it is 2013. The internet since is allowed for free why we need a password every week?

Excellent! Nothing to complain about. My one night stay was perfect. The room was tastefully decorated and the bed was comfortable. The restaurant served great food and I felt good just relaxing and enjoying myself. I'd definitely go there again when in Houston.

The room was comfortable and clean. We were able to get a good night's sleep. The desk clerk was very friendly. The ONLY down-side was there was a musty smell in our room, but it wasn't too bad and we were tired.

Maintenance should step up...
Finishing of tiles and flooring sloppy...
Clean, but marginal at best...
Compare to other Holiday Inn experience and find wanting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bejou The hotel is just great
Big no no is the transportación FROM the airport to the hotel, from the time that you call until pick up some times is more than 45 minutes, back from the hotel to the airport it is always perfect. Will be great if they have an schedule that way you know at what time the are going to be at your terminal or is late in yours you might use other terminal to get faster to enjoy the hotel

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomfromNC Great Stay, Thanks!
I live on the east coast but travel to Texas frequently for business. Not being a fan of the DFW sprint to the gate, I fly through Houston often and drive to my destination. One reason I do this is because this hotel is fantastic -- one of the true gems in the IHG family. Clean spacious room, everything works, and the staff is terrific. Proximity to airport can't be beat and they have a great restaurant as well. Every stay has been 100% positive, efficient, and reliable at this hotel. Thank you!

This is a friendly, clean, efficiently run hotel with a nice restaurant. The staff is helpful and professional. The airport shuttle service needs attention. Must call from airport and wait 15+ minutes.

Room smelled, over head room to loud people literally running and stomping at 3 am. Staff was friendly but appeared to be very busy and not in touch or tune with guests needs and request.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lorinvic Terrific staff, comfortable rooms
Welcoming and accommodating, the staff made us feel at home. They gave us our favourite room, which accommodates a small dog, and we had a great stay. It is close to the airport, but allows for shopping etc. in the area- perfect for passing through.The restaurant offered a great breakfast buffet and the supper menu was varied for all tastes. We would recommend this hotel to anyone coming or going from Houston.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Acidman1979 Service is good. No complaint.
Just one thing for bad.
I waited for the shuttle bus more than 40 min at the airport even though I heard from the staff by phone to wait for it 10-15 min.
Except the shuttle bus access, most of the service is good for me, and I would like to use next time, too.

Room was very humid and turning down the air conditioning temp didn't help. No internet access except in the lobby. Found out later that the regular "Holiday Inn" wifi was too weak and had to log on to a different wifi router.

I was extremely tired by the time I got to the hotel after a long week and was greeted with a great smile from the hostess. She was quick to get me checked in and welcomed me as a priority member. She also reminded me about a wake up call as I had to get up early for a flight the next day. Great experience.

I arrived at this property at 0930 in the morning. The front desk clerk was very friendly and explained to me that there wasn't a room ready just yet but they could have one cleaned within 30 minutes. I was grateful & enjoyed a cup of coffee in the lobby while I got some work done. She made a point to come find me and had me sign the paperwork right there & gave me my keys. Very classy.
Then I was lucky enough to be there on your guest appreciation day. The staff did a great job hosting a social event by the pool. it was a really nice touch. We had planned to meet at Clayton's for happy hour but decided to enjoy a few beers poolside instead. I'm glad we did!
Room was very nice as well. Spacious & modern.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MMColorado Good Value
Unfortunately, that's the best I can say for this property. Despite an apparently major makeover, this place still seemed dated, with woefully inadaquate room lighting, noisy, low tech cooling system, slow elevators and a polite, but disengaged staff.
If you're looking for a moderately priced room near the airport, this is a good choice. If you're looking for anything more, I'd look elsewhere. If you typically like the Hoiday Inn Express experience, this isn't it!
I must say that the restaurant was better than many I've experienced in other Holiday Inns.

It took three hours to get back to the airport in the morning because it took almost an hour to locate the shuttle driver. Then another 45 minutes to find a shuttle van. Then the van broke down on the way to the airport. As a result I missed my international flight. Not a place I would care to count on again. If you must stay here pay the extra money for a taxi.

6 of us were laid up in Houston for bad weather and the first resource I used was the priority club 800 number for local area hotels. My travel companions decided to follow suit so I booked us rooms with the Holiday Inn personnel - they took great care of us. We were in transit for 3 days trying to get back to Florida because of cancelled flights. Spent many hours in the Airport chasing standby flights. Ruby and Pamela (front desk - I hope I got their names right) helped out immensely checking us out each day and then getting us a room after a disappointing day at the airport from more cancelled flights. The service and food was great (I believe it is called the Good Eats Grill) at the hotel and seemed to draw a lot of locals. The bartenders were excellent and we all felt very at ease. In the mornings, breakfast was fantastic and everyone was always welcoming us with a smile. I know if I travel through Houston in the future - I will definitely stay here. Heck, maybe next time I can actually use the fantastic pool they have. Thank You Bob

You know when you earn points and the privileges that come with Platinum Status in the Priority Club you expect service.
The lack of service started with no priority check-in for Priority Club members.
Technology is basic to business travellers and the total inability to use my iPhone with the free WiFi in my room was exasperating to say the least.
And it did not work in any other part of the hotel being the lobby or restaurant. The young man who checked me in finally admitted to me that even his iPhone did not work at this hotel!
The food in Good Eats, was poor, cold - says it all.
The kicker was at check-out being rebuked by the front desk clerk at 6.30 am that I was the only guest who ever complained about not being able to use an iPhone on the free WiFi was enough to inspire me to write this review.
Maybe if I had not used my well-earned points for my stay I might have got better service and an enjoyable stay - somehow I think not!
Only positive - the hotel-airport shuttle left on time and the driver was courteous.
Perhaps this hotel should take a cue from him!

I found the front desk personnel helpful, the room service was good and the peach cobble at the restaurant delicious, however I cannot understand why the policy for the priority club members are not similar at all locations, I used to get a free drink/night and this was not applicable at this location.

The people that I met, was great from all over the world. The staff that I encountered, were at the front desk, restaurant and the bar. They were great people and very helpful. The food was okay, aspect for breakfast the eggs were always runny no-madder how you order them and the hotel rooms need updating but okay. A great experience for meeting people from around the world.
