Elizabth R, San Antonio Texas Mon, 18 March 2013

My stay here was very comfortable - the decorations of the lobby was beautiful! My room was a bit small but comfortable enough for two people; the bed was nice and comfortable to sleep in as well. The only thing I didn't get to see was the view from the rooftop hotel :( If they could stay open until 12 midnight it would be nice. I was at a Tegan and Sara concert so I got back to my room hoping to see the view but it was locked :( Anyway overall I loved this hotel. All the staff were very friendly! I would recommend people to stay here.

Nancy, Granbury Sun, 22 January 2012

The hotel's cons outweighed the pros for us. HVAC set at 64 and room was just marginally comfortable. No bathroom ventilation. Room was small but nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable. Easy walk to Verizon Wireless Theater. Lobby had an awful smell wafting through it any time that we walked through. Valet parking was $25 per night. Wouldn't recommend this hotel to others.

Liked: Good location if you're attending Verizon Theater
Disliked: HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) not great; smelly lobby, valet parking expensive

Liked: Guest services was very friendly. Location was great.
Disliked: Elevators were not working properly. We used the stairs when coming or leaving the hotel which was an issue with our toddler. The air conditioner was not working on the newly renovated¬Ě floor. We heard multiple guests complaining at checkout.

Liked: Location is great. Everything here is very expensive because of location. We loved the historical building this hotel is in.
Disliked: Everything way too expensive. Because of downtown Houston location. Everything from a bottle of water to a meal extra expensive. Hotel restaurant with limited selection and very expensive.
