Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PF75 Nice hotel w great breakfast/ no early check in
Overall my experience was good. My only complaint was we arrive early around 11 am and were told we could not check in until later. Understandably so we did a little site seeing before . I arrived by by 1:45 and the room was s not ready . I agreed to wait inside the hotel. My room was still not available( and I + 4others in my room )had a meeting to attend and get reay for at 5:00. I asked several times for an update and never received a more than it's not done yet .
The room was ready shortly after 3pm. We immediately raced to get ready for our event.wothin the hour I was getting a call from the front desk that I was not properly checked in and had to return to the front desk . Here I waited another 5 minutes to clear up the problem. - I would have thought since I asked for early check in the day prior when I called to confirm and also that am that arrangments would have been made to expediate the cleaning of the room. I don't feel anything was done to help in the situation and it made my stay very stressful.

The hotel was great. The staff was freindly and helped me any way they could. The only problem that I had was the cable tv was acting up. I know that it was out their control. Thank you all for making my stay there enjoable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smann51 Best ever
I have been staying at this location quite often over the last few years. The staff has had little change and their hotel shows how well that works! Everyone is friendly, helpful, and always ready to help with anything you need. I will not stay anywhere else if at all possible. From top to bottom this hotel is the best.

If you're out from out of town and are going to a concert or game at the Toyota Center, this is literally across the street. Indoor pool and hot tub, their own parking lot, and couldn't be closer. Great free breakfast too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelinGuy01 Great staff
Stayed for convention at nearby convention center. Easy two block walk. I was very impressed at the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff and especially the front desk. Out of three hotels I stayed at during this trip this was the best. Would definitely stay here again if needed. Several local restaurants also offered free local delivery.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Danny@VT GREAT SERVICE GOES SO FAR
I stayed at the HI in DT Houston with a group of students while attending a national conference hosted in another hotel. The staff at HI were amazing! They were courteous and customer service oriented. Rene, the front desk attendant, offered exceptional and personalized service even when busy. Our rooms were clean and well maintained. I would definitely stay at HI in DT Houston, again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie14 Very nice visit
Stayed here for several days. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Room was comfortable and clean. Housekeeping did a nice job of keeping things neat for me.
The surrounding area was open and clean. Walking at night probably should not be done alone though.
The breakfast was pretty well the best "free breakfast" I have experienced. Plenty of tasty hot eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy. The pancake machine was a bit less impressive.
No restaurant or lounge. I was attending a conference at a nearby hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marsh53 Great bargain
Rooms were fairly recently remodeled - bed and pillows were new, nice and comfortable. We were given an upgraded room for our membership without asking. We had a little trouble with the door key - but were able to work around it. Best part - it was easy walk to Toyota Center and to Convention Center - just a block - at a fraction of the price of other hotels in area - and had a great breakfast bar, free internet, free parking. Pool and gym looked nice - but I did not have time to use either. Free cookies and coffee/tea all hours, too. Will stay again if I need to go back to Houston.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James1904 Excellent reasonable lodging near convention center
Very clean up to date facility with excellent staff personnel. Was a 2 block walk to convention center and felt safe even after dark walking to convention center/park area. Only 4 block walk to huge assortment of food options- you really do not need a vehicle if in town for convention only. You cannot beat the fresh cookies every evening!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joeshmo23424 Nice hotel
Nice hotel very close to sporting events and restaurants. My only complaint is not really anything against this hotel but holiday inn in general. The breakfasts are so repetitive can't we have something other than eggs everyday and sausage or bacon. It's over and over. Even just waffles would be an improvement but that's just my thought.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Travel Hero To hard to get recurring reservations
I need to stay weekly Mon - Thur, but the conventions cause me to go elswhere.
They don't do a good job of reporting your stay for points.
Not very many eating places close by.
They also have issues with accounting and charges.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stampinsundevil Great room and hotel!
Our stay was great...comfortable room, nice and quiet, close to convention center, and great breakfast. The only thing we didn't like was the bathroom did not have a fan to help control the steam when taking a shower which is not good for the hair when you have two of you sharing the bathroom. Do wish there was a restaurant nearby that you could walk to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moekows Grat Location Excellent Value
We really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Downtown Houston. Everything is within walking distance. Our grandchildren came over for a dip in the indoor pool, which is kept nice and warm and the hot tub was very relaxing. The Otis Spunkmeyer cookies were a great touch for after swimming. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have seen. I highly recommend staying here.

I had a great experience at this hotel. My trip was for business and one thing that I loved is the fact that the room had lots of electrical outlets. The room was clean and very ample. Great job!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarwar70 Fantastic !!
I was trying to book another Hotel close to the George R. Brown Convention Center. Having no rooms in other hotels, I hesitantly choose this Hotel. But I am truly amazed by the property. I had a wonderful stay without any complains and it was just too fantastic just like a 5 star property. I will definitely be staying here again without any doubt next time I visit Houston for a Convention or Exhibition.

We stayed there for one night during the Christmas season. The staff was very nice and the room comfortable, clean, with an in-room mini fridge. It was excellent stay. The breakfast area was clean with good variety in the food selection. Parking was secure for downtown and we were pleased. The indoor pool looked very inviting we just did not have time to try it out. Definitely a great hotel in Houston.

The staff was amazing! The indoor heated pool was not working properly, which was the primary reason for the stay. However the management and guest relations department were very concerned about making our stay a pleasant one and overall it was.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VC62 Rene was the best!!
I was lost on a rainy, foggy, night in Houston. After a day of travel and a frightening experience being lost coming from the airport. I saw the Holiday Inn sign. I had no idea where I was and was tired and scared. I went to the front desk and the most amazing young man Rene- greeted me and helped me to calm down. He said you're here now and you can relax. He checked me in and gave me complimentary snacks and water and I began to calm down. He was at the desk the next morning, again greeted me and I told him the story of Kemmons Wilson who founded Holiday Inns. I am from Memphis, just as Mr. Wilso was. I think employees like Rene exemplify the best in Holiday Inns. Mr. Wilson would be proud. I am happy I stumbled onto this hotel and this aamzing young man. The next morning, refreshed and calm, I continued my journey to far West Houston. Thank you Rene and Holiday Inn.

We absolutely love this hotel. The beds and pillows are awesome, the place was clean and it's close to the George R. Brown center. The only thing that threw me off was Hilton Americas was cheaper, with valet and breakfast????

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FEMMO13 STAY AT HOLIDAY IN HOTEL, DOWN TOWN
The hotel environment was the first thing that attracted me. It was very neat and decent. Internally, the rooms were spacious, neat and off course, the bed was really what is expected- big and accommodating. Ffunctional and essential facilities that makes you feel as if you are still at home were available such as a desktop, printer with printing papers enough to serve as many as desired to print, not minding the existence of a business room. Front desk reception were supperb. Check in and out were with no problem and overall quality and behaviour of staff rated excellent. PLEASE REGISTER ME AS A CLUB MEMBER.

I am hard pressed to go to any other hotel. The rates are affordable, the rooms are clean, and if there is a problem with plumbing, it's fixed within 15 min. The staff is very hospitable, and the food choices are great for breakfast. I don't have any complaints about affordability, convenience, and membership privileges.
