We stayed here as we were attending a convention in the same hotel.
Check in was prompt even though we were early and the staff were very pleasant and helpful.
The lobby is very nice, with a large fireplace, a few computers and a large screen with all of the travel information you would need.
There is also a coffee bar just off to the right of the lobby as you walk to the elevators.
The room was nicely decorated and very clean and I thought the bed and pillows were comfortable.
There was ample space for clothes, a small fridge, microwave, coffee machine with coffee, TV, a nice sized desk and a small couch.
The bathroom had everything you expect: hairdryer, shampoo etc
The bonus was free wi-fi..it made things so much easier.
Downstairs, the small courtyard was pleasant to sit in. There are some water features and a big fire pit. We were sitting around this and was asked if we would like it turning on, but as it is Summer in Texas, we declined lol. I expect this looks really nice when it is lit and it is a little chillier.
Our room overlooked the courtyard and although there were people down there, we never heard them.
We never got to try out the pool as it was always quite full and to be truthful, we didn't really get the opportunity, but it was indoor and looked very inviting.
The gym was near the pool and look very adequate for your needs.
There is a lot to do around the hotel, shopping, restaurants etc, so you can always occupy yourself.
If there was one thing I would suggest, it would be to put vending machines on each floor. There was an area for them, but there was only an ice machine there, (unless we missed it).
Sometimes, you don't want to have to go all the way down to the lobby to get a drink.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would stay there again.
