This place is truly a mixed bag. The good: Old building renovated to contemporary standards with modern conveniences. Feels European. Smaller hotel which many folks prefer. Great beds, good room decor, individual temp controls, nice bathroom, great bed and linens, other amenities.
Bad news: Sketchy neighborhood, but much of Houston is sketchy. The staff is out to lunch much the time. I asked 4 times for a deposit receipt...could not get. My colleague walked in room, no towels. Other colleague: Room all spiffed up but pile of dirty towels in room. Keurig coffee maker but no coffee pods. Other issue is rooms and halls have deferred maintenance like broken glass on picture in room, or light fixtures in common areas need replacing. One thing I did not like was mandatory valet park at $28 per night. There is no other alternative. My new car was delivered to me with a 3' scrape on driver door. No way to prove it but..................
So, if you want comfy small Europe style hotel and don't have a car : recommendable. Just be ready for a few quirky things. (There is a courtesy car that can drive you anyplace in the area for
