My company insists I stay with another brand because of our "corporate rate", but I found this hotel to be a better value and MUCH better accomodations. I used to stay a couple doors down at the
Holiday Inn Express and it was nice but they allow pets and that doesn't work for me.
Crowne Plaza - Galleria made an amazing 1st impression on me when the other chain was sold out and I needed another option. Since then, it has been my exclusive choice for all my visits to Houston. In fact, I have stayed there over 21 days total on multiple occasions since the beginning of the year. I have also introduced the hotel to 4 other colleagues that now stay there per my recommendation.
The best feature of the hotel is the staff. RJ, Jon, Steven, Dani, and Liz are amazing and all know me by name when I walk in the door since my first stay. The restaurant and bar staff also treat me like a VIP. That's impressive! The entire staff goes above and beyond to make my stay so enjoyable. It's worth braking our corporate travel rules to stay there. [Less]
