I travel apx 60% of the time with my job and frequent Houston quite often. The staff at the Holiday Inn Houston-Intercontinental Arpt is without a doubt one of the best around! They are friendly, call me by name and welcome me with each visit. I checked in on Sunday and your security staff was thoughtful enough to bring me the luggage cart... brought it to my vehicle to help me transport my luggage in to the hotel! I've never been treated to such courtesy! Thanks for a GREAT place to stay and sure appreciate your staff making me feel at home...when I'm away from home!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TXPriorityClubMember Older building, but nicely updated
Room 515 was great. Spacious. Firm mattress. Choice of hard or soft pillows. Guest bag for Priority Club member on check in with bottled water, cookies, peanuts. Outstanding breakfast. Minor glitch: Towel hook on back of bathroom door had been pulled off, leaving a hole. No refrigerator although one was requested in advance. Walls a little thin. Could hear neighbor's TV.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ron5 Airport Hotel
Only average for a Holiday Inn. Old and it shows. Only redeeming value is that it is close to the airport.
Internet was lousy to poor, but at least I could get e-mail.
The restaurant was a little better but slow service.
Next time, I'll look at alternatives.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by arjaey Rooms not ready upon check in. Good Service
our rooms have been reserved for a few days before arrival at the hotel, upon check in there are no rooms available because the rooms are not cleaned yet, so we have to wait before we can have our rooms. My suggestion is that every time that anyone who had already checked out, the staff should prepare the rooms for the next guest in order that new guest can occupy the rooms and have a good rest from a long travel. That would be appreciated. Priority Members are recognized but there are no Complimentary Drinks or Some Nuts....

We had missed our connecting flight to Phoinix and had to stay in Houston overnight. The front desk person was extremely helpful, sent a shuttle to pick us from the airport and helped in every possible way. The room was clean and nice, breakfast was fabulous.

We went to Houston area for a 50th Anniverary Wedding. Your hotel was highly recommended. We enjoyed our stay although we spent very little time in the hotel. Everyone was friendly, breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to the Houston area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frank83 Long wait for shuttle but good service experience
After landing at the airport and calling for a shuttle and being told it would show up in about 20 minutes, I waited 45 minutes until I called again. I then was told – after being on hold for 5 minutes – that it now definitely would show up within the next 10-15 minutes; which it did: So finally I waited about 1 h for the shuttle which was very inconvenient after a 22 h journey to Houston. However, I was given a voucher for dinner at their restaurant as apology which I appreciated.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Canddmf High Volume Airport Hotel
Our experience was mixed at the Airport Holiday Inn. Per the airport procedure, we called for the hotel shuttle bus and were informed that the bus would be there in 15 minutes. It actually took around 30 minutes and a second call, and the 2 busses showed up within a minute of each other.
Check-in was very speedy and efficient.
The room was up to date, properly supplied and in good, clean condition.
The hallway carpet is among the most vivid ugly color schemes I have ever seen. Seems they are shooting for a Southwestern color scheme, but chose a zig-zag pattern with high contrast. At least the room was not carpeted that way.
Checkout was speedy but I did not receive a receipt on the way out.
Overall, acceptable place to stay with a couple of minor "bumps".

I did have a problems the last time using this hotel and did report same to IHG. However, I did go back to this Hotel two weeks later and I must say that the manager Mr Miller address the problem and went far and above my expectations. I would recommend this hotel to anyone in need of a hotel around the Houston Intl airport. Great staff,great room and good value. I would site one front desk person that went the extra mile ( Anna ). Thanks.

I am writing this review to commend the front desk staff on the morning of March 27, 2013. When I suggested that the hotel guest laundry on the second floor, not be open after 9:00 PM for surrounding guest rooms comfort; and also recommended that signs with room number locations be posted outside the elevator on the second floor, they were genuinely concerned. I was especially grateful for their response, as I had been on travel for four straight weeks and had this point, lost a great deal of my sense of humor. I always enjoyed staying at this hotel in the past for business reasons, as it allowed me easy access to the Houston/Galveston/Beaumont/Port Arthur areas. Being situated next to the laundry room, the night prior to a big presentation wasn't the best experience, I have had at the hotel, but the front desk staff attitude, more than made up for my inconvenience. I also enjoy dining at the restaurant and interacting with the great staff, there. The hotel could stand some upgrade, but then everybody would want to here.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Enroute101 Overnight stay for a cruise
Hotel shuttle runs only every half hour back and forth to airport and not on need. Can be crowded and the driver drives like "crazy" and not very pleasant to guests. Hotel front check in manager very pleasant but the rest of the desk staff don't really care. Beds are comfortable but pillows poor. Rooms very quiet which is good so close to airport. Food in restaurant is fine and good value. Staff very pleasant but need food service training, as our server hardly knew how to open a bottle of wine, she needed a hand. Young man in morning shift at breakfast however was extremely efficient and chefs for morning breakfast very pleasant.
Fine but would not highly recommend. Will not go out of our way to return. Busy hotel and the staff made you feel as if you were just another travelling passing through and they really didn't care if you ever returned.

The staff was AMAZING!!! Loved them loved them! The hotel is old and needs work done to it to get it up to the twentieth century mark. If they fix the hotel and had the staffs attitude, this would be a five star establishment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MicheleK Nice place to stay
A co-worker and I were booked into this hotel on business.we stayed for 2 1/2 weeks.The stay was comfortable enough and the staff was always very nice.The second day we were there we went down to see about getting a refrigerator and microwave in our rooms...refrigerator was sent up immmediately,never got a microwave.We were on the 4th floor and the only microwave was on the 1st. Would have been more convient to have one by the ice and soda maching on our floor.We used the shuttle service to get back and forth to the Airport everyday and only had to wait more the 10 minutes a couple of times. The shuttle service was REALLY nice to have to go to the mall and Walmart. A lot of Airplane noise,but that is to be expected with how close to the airport this property is.All in all my stay was very nice.

Check-in was a breeze. The staff was very professional and courteous. The restaurant staff were very attentive, yet gave you space. My compliments to them. The room was very nice. The water pressure for the shower was fine, but the toilet was slow. I used the exercise room during my stay. There were a variety of machines to get a full workout.. I enjoyed my stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Anthony5 Helpful staff and good restaurant
Close to airport but little aircraft noise. Convenient free shuttle not only to and from the airport but also to a large local mall. Try to get a room at back as the front rooms get noise from trucks passing by. The free WiFi had high bandwidth so was fast. Room clean but a bit tired looking (perhaps too many enthusiatic guests). Simple restaurant with good food and reasonable prices - busy as the locals come in to eat too (a good sign to me).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great Location; Wonderful Food
The shuttle service worked out perfectly -- happened to be waiting for us when we exited. The room was comfortable, nothing exceptional, but the food at the adjoining restaurant was incredible for breakfast. It is a huge hotel (loads of rooms) and a convenient location for IAH. The price was decent for that location.

You get what you pay for. Attitudes are poor. Called for shuttle driver and he asked what terminal I was at. I told him I wasn't sure but I just arrived USAirways and was waiting outside. He advised he could not pick me up unless I gave him a terminal. I repeated USAirways. Wasn't good enough. I had to flag down a Spot Parking van to find out I was in Terminal A. Loud music blaring at pool. I listened to it for 2 hours. Called front desk and asked them to have someone turn the volume down since it was 9p.m. With attitude she informed me she was at the front desk and had no idea how loud the music was. Hello? What was wrong with saying "We will look into it"? About 10 minutes later it was turned off. The next morning my blowdryer burnt out, sparks and smoke. I was trying for the 6 a.m. shuttle but that didn't work because the hotel had no one to bring me a new hairdryer. The male said he was too busy checking people out and housekeeping didn't come in until 630. At 615 (with wet hair) I went to front desk and went to female to check out. She pointed to the male and said he will help you. I asked for receipt because one was not placed under my door for expedite checkout (priority status didn't matter). He went to the backroom and came back with my receipt. I now was able to wait for the 630 shuttle. Oh, had to go back in and ask for receipt with zero balance since that is what I need for expense report. The male finally printed a new receipt. Sat on a full shuttle bus, standing room only, waiting for an airline captain. After 10 minutes he arrived, but since he had to stand he got off the bus and said he would take the next shuttle. Not a good experience for the entire shuttle being delayed for one skygod. Next time, leave him.

My stay at this Holiday Inn was fantastic! I checked in with complimentary water and snacks and I found out that there was a Customer Appreciation event that night. I walked into the event and was amazed at the spread of appetizers, drinks, music and raffles.The personnel were friendly, enthusiastic and the guests all enjoyed themselves! I will definitely stay here again!

I always enjoy staying at your property. The all inclusive package along with the friendly staff bring me back each time I am in Houston. The location and the packages offered are outstanding. Linda and Walter are always warm and welcoming. As a person who travels frequently, the staff means a great deal and brings me back again and again.
