Ok - I like the Four Seasons - all of them. Many I have been to in the last several years all have the same service (excellent) which more than makes up for the fact that several of these properties (Houston, Austin, Dallas, Toronto, Palm Beach, Maui) are older properties, bordering on "tired". That doesn't bother me as much as it does some. What keeps me coming back to the Four Seasons chain is the service and cleanliness. Yes, the Houston D/T property is needing a little updating, but most DT areas all over the world are having to renovate to keep up with demand and contemporary needs. We booked a wonderful BOGO package for a weekend; Book one night, second night free. I got a much better deal than those I traveled with whom booked the Hilton! We had a short 5 min walk to the GRB. Traveling with 3 kids was a little tricky as this D/T hotel has King rooms and Twin rooms - I thought that odd. They put us in an Executive Deluxe suite with connecting rooms (1 K, 2 T) which provided us with 2 baths (they are small in the older properties) and a living area. Was nice to spread out a bit. Upon arrival, we found a plate of homemade cookies (huge) with each child's name written in chocolate on the plate, Sprites and glasses for each with a full ice bucket and a bucket of popped popcorn - what a special touch. They brought in an extra twin and set it up in the twin bedroom (think Brady Bunch style). We were very comfortable for 2 days and 2 nights. We enjoyed an excellent meal at Quattro (Lobster Risotto!)- food and service very good, decor/atmosphere a bit sterile. We enjoyed the lounge and cocktails. Room Service was point on - with a kids' menu to make parents grin (grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, peas - $6!!). Downer was the cold, rainy weekend. We could see the lovely pool area from our rooms, but weather did not permit us enjoying it. Maybe next time. Another thought to beat the boredome - have the girls' nails painted at the spa. THEY DON"T DO POLISH APPLICATION! What?!? I've never heard such a thing at a spa! Oh well...The Houston Center (across the street) seems to offer some decent choices for eating (even a book store I wanted to take the kids to, get out of the rain, etc.) but the hours are very limited on the weekend - nothing open on Sunday at all! Not even Starbucks! We ate at the House of Blues 1/2 block out the back door of the hotel- thank goodness they were open! Good food and Service there, too. If in Houston, I will return to the FS.
