We had never been to Texas before and decided to visit Houston on July 4th. After comparing prices of hotels in the area, we decided to stay at The Sam Houston. We were greeted by valet who took care of the vehicle so that we could begin our vacation right away. We were pleasantly surprised with the city views from our ninth floor room and found the room itself to be very spacious, modern and clean. The attention to detail was impeccable. From the gorgeous flooring, to the textured wallpaper and even the finishings in the bathroom---I can honestly say I have never stayed in such a luxurious hotel. Also, The Sam Houston is located within a short distance to lots of major attractions and even though we did not know the area, we walked most everywhere we went and felt safe. There was a beautiful wedding taking place on the Friday night during our stay and we didn't find the noise to be an issue at all. We even enjoyed a little dancing in our room before the party died down in the evening:) The front desk staff was beyond helpful and provided us with local magazines, directions and advice for places to see in the area and even ice for our cooler. Our experience at The Sam Houston was far superior to our previous night's stay at the Hilton and we will definitely be staying here again!
