When we pulled up to the curb outside of the Residence Inn Downtown, Convention Center, I was some concerned. The area looked a bit rough and men were sitting outside smoking. Was this a Marriott property or an SRO? Once inside we received a warm welcome and an easy check in. The property has undergone a recent remodel and the rooms were both roomy and comfortable. The staff was always gracious and the food served during the hospitality period each evening was both plentiful and well done.
Forgetting about the exterior, which I hope will be improved, this hotel does maintain the Residence Inn character and comfort. Unfortunately downtown Houston appears to be lost to the suburbs and a bit scary with a great deal of aggressive panhandling.
