“Typical Hilton - Good Quality but Pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights while attending the Boys Junior Nation Volleyball Championships at the convention center. The Hilton is connected by a walkway over the street to the convention center so you never have to go outside which is nice in July with the humidity and thunderstorms. It is also conveniently close to the Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park.

Check in was a fast and had a friendly staff.

My room was clean, quiet, and well done. Typical Hilton quality.
Also, typical with Hilton is you pay extra for EVERYTHING - Internet access being pricey, food is pricey, self-parking is $20 per night, while valet is $34. Typical Hilton pricey.

There are a lot of restaurants within walking distance: House of Blues, and a great Italian restaurant right next door to the House of Blues.

A taxi ride:
Anywhere in the downtown area is a flat $6.
To IAH - Intercontinental Airport is approx. $55.

All in all it was a great stay mainly because of the convenience to the convention center. Probably would not stay here again – I’m not a big fan of Hilton’s. They are more for business travelers that get reimbursed by their company’s.

Dear AZMesaFamily,

Thank you for your review and for giving us such high ratings on your room, sleep quality and the service you received from our team during your stay. As a AAA four diamond rated hotel, it is important that we maintain a high level of cleanliness, great service and amenities that guests would expect,. We are sorry that despite the experience you and your family had, your overall rating was average.

We do offer a variety of packages throughout the year that may interest you for any future travels to Houston.

We appreciate you staying with us and our sponsorship of USA Volleyball/Boy's Junior National Championship.

Regards,

Jacques D'Rovencourt

Hilton employees were very attentive and always greeted us with "hellos and how are you doing" and always offered to lend a helping hand. Try at least one nite on the executive floor for a wonderful time

I try to stay at this hotel whenever I am in the Houston area because I know I will have a problem free stay. The service goes above and beyond. The location is in the heart of downtown Houston which is good and bad, always traffic but close to everything. I didn't give 5 stars only because there rates can be on the HIGH side.

Good location near downtown Houston. Right next to the Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park. Hotel is new and looks great. Rooms were good size (beds were soo comfortable).
Like all big hotels, parking costs extra. If you self park, be prepared to walk to your room from the garage.
Here is a tip-book an executive room. Those rooms are on the higher floors and you get a better view. Those rooms also have access to the executive lounge with free breakfast (don't get that with the regular rooms) and evening reception.

My husband is diamond status and I have to confess we are a little spoiled, but this place is just fantastic. The cleanliness is exceptional. The 23rd floor (if I remember correct) pool, hot tub and workout facility was exceptional (thought we did wish the pool was outdoors) but the outdoor balcony to relax and overlook Houston helped. We were sad we didn't have time to enjoy the Pappasitos downstairs as we know that is good Mexican from our years of living in Texas. It is extremely close to a few of the sports/concert venues in downtown Houston. We did just have two queens and I have to admit that we are usually spoiled by being accustomed to suite upgrades. The executive lounge for you diamond status members was also nice, though I do miss getting the hot items for breakfast like scrambled eggs, but it was very comfortable.

Room Tip: Just ask what your options are to look at... It is all downtown Houston.

Dear sandic1968,

Thank you for your kind words and you recognizing us as a fantastic property. We certainly value you and your husband's loyalty to Hilton Worldwide. We would have hoped to have been able to upgrade you at the time, unfortunately due to availability, it was not possible this time to do. We do hope to be able to really recognize your status and make up for this on your next visit.

Thank you again and we look forward to your return.

Pool is too small and I was unexpectedly charged tax or some fee with parking but no major complaints. Room was nice and clean. We slept well. Be aware they book a lot of private events and the lobby and self parking gets crowded.

We had a great stay and the quality of service provided to us exceeded my expectation. We checked in and the front desk agent offered our fife year old daughter a welcome amenity. He then turned to me and asked if there were any dietary restrictions he should be aware of before calling room service. THAT'S JUST AWESOME. We don't get this in the best restaurants as we generally have to make the server aware that she has a gluten allergy let alone from a front desk agent. Well done, well done and very impressive.
