This CP is located in a unique place; within two miles on either side, you have Rice Village, the Galleria, Montrose and Rice University. There are few hotels in the area that are this well located; the Crowne Plaza's location next to 59 is fantastic and makes it easy to zip in and out. The staff were very friendly during my stay (as they are at most places in Houston) and gave me a helpful explanation as to how to work their parking garage gate. The room itself was clean with a good view, although the furnishings were not really new and seemed a little faded. The bed itself was comfortable, although the door jams of each room come with metal plates that clack loudly every time someone closes the door down the hall. This can keep you up if you like to nap, although I did not hear this at night after I went to bed. The only thing I did not like about the hotel was the sorry state of the parking garage; the stairwell seemed old and dirty, and it was difficult to maneuver if a lot of cars were parked in the same area. That said, it seemed easy to get in and out with my room key, so it was not that inconvenient. Overall, I had a great stay at this hotel and will likely book again in the future, if only because of its convenient location and friendly service.
