Even and I only stay one night for Eric Clapton's concert, the time me and my wife spend in your hotel was very good.

We were in town for the weekend to go to the zoo and just a quick family getaway. We were greeted at check-in with goody bags of candy, water, and granola bars - my daughter was very excited about those. The hotel was quick access to the Toyota Center, Convention Center, and Minute Maid Park. The parking was free and we never had any problems with safety.
The rooms were average. Some renovations had been done but painting and some finishes were not done well. The carpet was old in our room but the room was spacious and the beds were comfortable enough. The breakfast in the morning was decent and had a good variety. The pool area was very nice. Overall, I would say for the price it was a decent stay - the rooms could stand to be updated more but most everything else was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LauraG9554 Nice stay, a few changes need to be made
When I arrived at the hotel, the staff were very friendly and helpful. I was able to check in very quickly and it was effienct. When I got to my floor, it smelled very strongly of smoke, and I was not aware there were smoking rooms on that floor. It was lingering throughout my stay. The next moring, there were very few options for breakfast, and what they did have was not very appealing. Luckily, they did have some bananas. Overall I would rate my stay as excellent, but I was disappointed with the food options and smell. I would reccomend this hotel in a bind!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JET123 Great location to the Toyota Center
The room was dated with the ironing board mounted to the wall by the bed. The chair was stained and dirty. The breakfast selections were fair to average. The hotel was very clean in public areas and the bathroom in the room was clean. You could not beat the location as you could walk the one block to the venue.

This property was a conveiennt location for our needs while our stay in Houston. Since the Toyota Center was only 2 blocks down walking there was easy. The staff was courteous, rooms are average, the Lobby was quite nice.
Thank you for a pleasant stay.

We recently had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Our room had one king-sized bed, the room was large, extremely quiet and stayed nice and dark in the morning. Breakfast was your typical Holiday Inn Express breakfast, but had all that one needed to get a good start to the day. We loved the milk and cookies that were offered every day at 4:00 (chocolate chip and oatmeal raison cookies), great idea! We felt safe walking around the neightbourhood. We walked many times to Minute Maid Park for baseball games. Strolled downtown, trying restaurants in the Pavillion area, Starbucks, and even went to a local grocery store and brought back some food to later warm up in the microwave in our room. The staff was always friendly and answered any questions that we had. We would definitely stay at this hotel again, especially if we were to go to an event at Toyota Center, Downtown Convention Center or Minute Maid Park.

This hotel was phenomenol!!! We were in town for a concert at the Toyota Center and we could literally walk across the street. That convenience itself was well worth the cost. Fresh hot chocolate cookies at check in and a great variety of breakfast foods (i.e. pancakes, biscuit, eggs, fresh fruit). I have stayed in a dowtown Houston Hotel a couple of other times and HANDS DOWN the price, amenities, and location by far exceed expectations!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GBTEXAS Didn't Know it was here in my Home Town!
Ran the Houston Chevron Marathon, upon arriving at the George R Brown Convention Center to get Running Bib and Packet, saw the Holiday Inn Express and thought, when did this appear? I've lived in Houston for over 20 years. So I decided to stay so that I could walk over to the GRB and marathon. THE BEST DECISION I'VE MADE IN A LONG TIME!
A very nice Holiday Inn Express! They started breakfast early due to a lot of runners staying at the hotel. They allowed us late check-outs due to not knowing our race times, etc. The weather was COLD and raining, so I myself had a slow run. And when I called telling them I would be later than given to check out, they said NO PROBLEM! Very nice of them! This really makes me feel great about being a member of Priority Clubs and making Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express my hotel on the road! I've stayed at several Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express locations, and this one is up there on the list!

Great hotel in a great location downtown very close to the Toyota Center and Convention Center. Outstanding and very helpful hotel staff! Came to Houston helping my son relocate to attend University of Houston. Although I had no pryor reservation, was able to get a nice room and hotel staff made us feel very much at home. Hotel has daily complementary breakfast and cookies and milk in afternoons. Also has a great indoor pool and hot tub that was very relaxing! Hotel staff was very accomodating and really took that extra step! and on top of all that, price was a GREAT value!!

We had an amazing time. The property was spotless. I was so impressed with how clean the place was. The children loved the indoor pool. I wish the hottub would have been hot and working but I enjoyed watching kids swim. The hotel was perfectly located to Discovery green. The breakfast in the morning was a huge treat!!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by passiton wonderful experience
Pleasantly surprised upon arrival to receive a free upgrade. First night our room was directly above the outside music speakers. It was not unacceptably too loud, but not great. When I mentioned it to the staff the next morning, they were wonderful, friendly, and immediately took care of the problem. They made sure the volume was lowered and turned off at the correct time. Beautiful, clean facility. Great location. Good access to downtown and local transportation. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Will stay here again.

We had a wonderful stay and it started with how friendly we were greeted by Inez and previously speaking to her to confirm our reservations. I was surprised at how attentive the voice at the other end sounded. It made me feel resassured that we would have a great stay. I am glad to say that we were not disappointed with any single aspect of the hotel. We visit the downtown houston area often and have now found the perfect hotel to stay during our future visits.

I was recognized at check in as a Platinum Elite member and I received a very nice Priority Club Rewards Goody bag. The only problem at this hotel is the limited parking on the front side of the hotel and to make matters worse, some hotel guests do a very poor job in parking. It is sad to see a vehicle parked over or on the lines that prohibts others from using the parking space next to them. These inconsiderate guests are either very poor drivers or they park that way to keep someone from hitting the side of their vehicle. Someone is going to key the side of their vehicle someday for parking like this.
I had a very nice stay and a very pleasant and quiet room. The only negative that I noticed during my stay was that the lobby and breakfast areas were very very hot in the mornings. This was not a problem on the third floor that I was staying on. I noticed this temperature problem before on previous stays.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SWESue fabulous breakfast
This was a pleasant surprise. I booked this hotel because it was less expensive than others in walking distance to the Convention Center and free wifi. But the breakfast was superb! I did not expect eggs and sausage/bacon, biscuits, and other pastries for breakfast everyday. Nor did I expect the lemonade and chocolate chip cookies in the late afternoon when I got back from meetings at the Convention Center. Nice stay and helpful staff!
