This Homewood Suites is on the west side of Houston just across the street from the Galleria Mall - a huge upscale shopping mall. It's only about a 15 minute drive to downtown; add lots of time if the traffic is slow which it usually is in Houston. My wife and I stayed for 3 nights; we used to live in this part of town about 25 years ago, so we know the area well.
The staff was very friendly. The breakfast was acceptable. I think I paid $109 per night, so this was a very good deal for a suite. The kitchen had a full-size fridge, a stove and microwave.
We dined at three excellent eateries while staying here. Bubba's Texas Burger Shack is about one mile south on Sage Road at Westpark Blvd. It's a rustic roadside shack that serves outstanding buffalo burgers and cold beer. It's been around for about 25 years. The El Tiempo Cantina about 2 miles east on Richmond Avenue serves some of the best Tex-Mex meals you can find in the entire Southwest. The Goode Company on KIrby Drive just south of Hwy 59 about 4 miles east of the hotel serves excellent barbecue. It's all about the smoked meat.
We didn't stay at the Homewood Suites just to eat at the terrific restaurants, but we know where the locals go when the get hungry.
