My company (Train company) put me up her for an overnight layover. I have to say the hotel is very nice. It’s in the heart of downtown with all it has to offer. There’s a burger place in the hotel that will open soon. Across the street is Your Pie Pizza. Fresh pizzas made right in front of you. This section is for cigar/cigarette smokers; on the 2nd floor there’s a HUGE patio/terrace that’ll hold 60ppl if need be. Several sectionals to relax and smoke your stick. There’s a place literally around the corner from the pizza place cooked Posh liquor that has numerous sticks for sale. My only interaction with hotel staff was a gentleman name Davine, very helpful & courteous with what to do in area and what see. This hotel is very spacious and relaxing within the heart of downtown. Parking $10 a night so take that into consideration.

For starters I was met by Travis at the front desk who was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and welcoming which is a nice change from the norm. After a long day of travel I ventured into Burger Theory, the local restaurant within the holiday inn. Nancy and Kelly were absolutely amazing Bartenders. Friendly, pleasant and most importantly attentive to what myself and the other patrons needed. Highly recommended Holiday inn Houston downtown.

I booked the wrong location, and the front desk helped us fix my mistake. The hotel was very attractive, with nice amenities. I loved the restaurant in the hotel- Burger Theory. Really good food, atmosphere, and service. So convenient, for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Nice gym, terrace, lobby, and valet parking, with shuttles to the Toyota Center. Room was updated and modern. I enjoyed the view. The look and feel of the hotel felt much more upscale than the price would suggest.A front desk clerk, Divyne, was especially helpful with our stay. Heidi was wonderful, as well. Felt like a luxury stay!

We were there for the Houston Marathon and wanted to be downtown. We really liked our Superior Room with separate pull-out sofa. The King bed and sofa bed were both very comfortable, and we loved the pillows! This particular room has fridge, microwave, coffee maker - all the amenities we needed. Also very quiet. We opted to purchase a breakfast option when we purchased our room - this ended up being a really good deal for us and we enjoyed the breakfast buffet, plus one day we ordered off the menu - no extra charge. It is located in the Burger Theory Restaurant - you can also order lunch or dinner from the phone in your room and go pick it up yourself so very convenient. The location of hotel allows you to walk anywhere in the downtown area, so easy to access convention center and sporting arenas. Tip for getting to the airport - if you have the time, there is a city bus that takes about an hour, only costs around $1.25 and stops one block from the hotel.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Hotel was clean, breakfast was good with happy cheery breakfast staff. The room was fine. The servers in the bar were nice and friendly. The food was nice. The hotel is located alongside the tram, so useful for getting around although we did walk and Uber. Good location. Very clean large city. Would recommend an orgabised tour to get the most out of your stay as Houston is very spread out.
