Residence Inn Houston West/Energy Corridor
Ranked #166 of 517 Hotels in Houston
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2012

We stayed here for 3 weeks as a young family while relocating. It is more of a long stay type of hotel than a hotel with all the standard amenities (bar, restaurant etc). That said, it was clean, rooms neat and in good condition and in a good location for this part of town. You can walk to restaurants etc. and there is a nice bayou park nearby to go jogging in etc. The hotel feels quiet (which we liked) and the pool was decent. There are not lots of staff but those that are there are helpful and polite. The breakfasts were ok for standard American style. They were also serving free light meals on week nights (one specific meal per evening, nothing fancy) which was an alternative to eating out every night. Car parking is free too. I would stay here again if working in the Energy corridor.

Staff is so friendly. Breakfast was convenient, happy hour snacks were great. Spent 56 days here after my house rented out...on my way overseas- near everything we needed. Would highly recommend for extended stay.

Room Tip: We stayed on 5th floor looking over "sharky's" got plenty of natural light.

Good location, close to most oil company and other large businesses and also close to several decent restaurants. The room layout is efficient and the sleep quality is good. We had a two bedroom suite. The living area is of adequate size, the bedrooms are rather small, with a queen bed in each room. The sofa in the living room opens up into a bed and is reasonably comfortable. The free breakfast is of average quality. We for the most part prepared breakfast in our room. The coffee is good. Overall a good choice for extended business and weekend family stays.

This hotel was recommended to me by the oil company I was doing consulting for as it was very close to their office. The front desk staff that greeted me was friendly and efficient. The room (a queen studio) was relatively spacious but not huge. This property does not offer king beds in any of their rooms, which I found a bit odd for a business class hotel. The A/C was a bit noisy cycling on and off but that could be mitigated by setting the fan to run continuously.

The room is equipped with a full size fridge, two-burner cooktop and microwave but no oven. This proved to be adequate for light meals and leftovers. There was a single large-ish flat screen TV that you could swivel to watch in the sitting area or bed but you can't watch it from both areas at the same time. Many of the 40 or so channels offered were in high-def and they have Showtime rather than the more common HBO. There is both free wired and wireless Internet. I used the wired and found the speed to be outstanding, especially for a free system.

The hotel has a complimentary breakfast with your typical free-breakfast offerings - scrambled eggs, Sysco sausage, potatoes and a waffle iron for hot items with the usual assortment of cereals and breads. In the evenings, there is a light meal of varying quality along with beer and red wine. Fortunately, there are several restaurants within easy walking distance.

Marriott properties have been making a concerted effort recently to stamp out literacy by being chintzy with their newspapers. I was pleasantly surprised to find a paper at my door every morning. I did not see this at many doors so this is probably due to my Marriott Rewards status but this is still better than many of their other properties do.

All in all, this is a great choice if you need to be in this area of Houston.

I have been working on a project with an energy company for the last few months and have had to commute to Houston for at least 1 week each month. I have stayed every time at the Residence Inn Energy Corridor and have not yet been disappointed. The hotel is your standard business hotel with the benefit of having a full kitchen. The rooms have always been spotless and the service friendly. The hotel is within walking distance of several good restaurants including Mexican, Mediterranean, and sushi restaurants next door. There is also a very nice grocery store approximately 1/2 mile down the street where you can get any provisions you might want for an extended stay. There is an excellent dry cleaner and a salon/day spa across the street. The pool area looks nice although I haven't used it. The fitness center consists of two treadmills, a stairmaster, and a stationary bike. I think there are also a few free weights.

My only complaint is that the hotel seems to set its thermostat a bit on the low side for my taste. I walked into my room one time to find it set on 65F. The common areas also tend to be a bit chilly.

Bottom line I will continue to stay at this hotel anytime I have to travel to the Energy Corridor.

We've put our friends and family here recently and spent some time there. Great facility--good location-very close to highways and great dining.

Free breakfast was actually decent--when other Marriotts might have so-so.

Rooms could stand an update-but they're very comfortable.

I have nothing bad to say about his Residence Inn at all! The room was spotlessly clean, great amenities and a wonderful value for what was included. The pool area was clean and we enjoyed the hot tub. There was a gas grill, lounge chairs, and plenty of clean towels. The breakfast was far better than most free breakfasts, and the staff worked diligently to keep the food stocked.
The area of the hotel was safe and secure and very quiet. We would certainly stay here again!
