In the heart of downtown Houston, steps from major attractions, restaurants and businesses, this private club-like hotel features contemporary accommodations with many of today's modern conveniences.
Score from 603 reviews Very good
Just one mile from downtown Houston, this luxury hotel features BALANCE Urban Spa and a hot tub. Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, is a 5 minute drive away.
Score from 117 reviews Wonderful
Some small but noticeable flaws take this down a notch--succession of odd musty smells in the elevator and halls, poorly positioned furniture, standing puddle in the bathroom. I'd still pick it over the bland chains but your mileage may vary if you're a stickler for the details.
Nicely decorated boutique hotel close to all the main downtown attractions and lots of restaurants/bars. Rooms are spacious (we had a King Deluxe) and stylish. One of a few alternatives to the big chains downtown.
My room was right above what I think was the mascinery of the hotels central air conditioning The noise was very disturbing. Had to sleep with air plugs. I asked the receptionist at check-in if the room was quiet, and was told it was. As a solo male traveler one get used to always be given the worst room of the hotel, and I usually complain/pick a fight to get it changed, but this time I was to tired from 2 weeks of work so I just put up with it
location,interior style, spacious room
Nothing nearby on a Sunday even for breakfast. Lots of homeless around...not a nice area.
Very comfortable and clean rooms. Friendly staff.
Mandatory valet charges of $28 daily. Breakfast was skimpy, especially considering the room rate. At least they could buy a toaster for the bagels.
The ability to walk to or take the rail to many points of interest. The very helpful and polite staff.
Large homeless population in area and was deserted on weekends. No area restaurants open on weekends.
Great little breakfast, beautiful bathrooms, comfy bed
THE LOBBY HAD A BAD ODER.
Good value and good location.
Staff and facilities were excellent. Room looked like it had recently been updated. We had a great view of the Texas Court of Appeals Building (very cool old building).
NO WHERE TO GET A COKE !!!!
Staff was nice. Room was clean
Although hotel itself is well kept the lots around the hotel are less than desirable.
Friendly front desk staff. Comfortable bed and pillows. Nice bathroom with great shower
Location was a little in the ghetto part of downtown, but never felt unsafe.
Great restaurants and bars (prohibition) within walking distance, as well as discovery green. The hotel also has a free shuttle that takes people within a 3 mile radius.
neighboring properties were less than desirable, no vending machines on property, no restaurants around this area open late, hotel bar said open until 2:00 a.m. it was closed when we got back to hotel shortly after midnight, so plan on getting food & drinks before you head back to hotel after a night out on the town unless willing to pay outlandish prices for a bottle water or snacks in room!
nice staff, clean room and very well decorated, overall very pleasant experience
The breakfast was a little skimpy but not too much too complain about
Very good location to everything downtown. Veryclean, great facilities. Really nice bathrooms
Our room had silly string on walls & curtain. The glass on picture had something smeared on it? The shower leaked all over the floor every time, even though closed.
We had our sons wedding at the hotel. We are the Grooms parents...The bed was comfortable & wedding went well!
Parking is kind of a pain and the blinds in our room had just enough space to let the sun shine right in our eyes at about 8:30 a.m.
Beautiful room, comfortable bed, within walking distance of many downtown nightlife destinations. And the wife LOVED the tub..
Very small quibbles only: Times for the breakfast service listed in the room guide are inaccurate. The hotel gym also has a mostly mismatched collection of free weights; the only dumbbell pairs I could find were 15's and 45's.
The Sam is a real find. It's less expensive than other first-class downtown hotels, but boasts large, ultra-modern rooms; ours had two flat-screen TVs. Service was outstanding—a front desk concierge was always present, extremely friendly, and ready to help with transit arrangements, dining suggestions, and sightseeing advice. The Sam's also super-convenient to the rail line, and the Museum District is only a few stops away. I'd definitely stay again!
the parking was like $28, which i did not expect since i was a guest. Valet was nice though.
Bed was super comfy, staff was very friendly and professional, decor was very fun...kind of retro and modern...eclectic
Inside staff. Very unconcerned and unfriendly.
The suite was nice.
The parking/valet was a nightmare... When we got there, the valet looked at us as if we were in the wrong place... had me take all my bags out and then proceed to ask if I needed help. The nightmare was the next morning... granted it was New Year's Day, the texting system to get your car does not work.. We came downstairs to see 20 people waiting for their car. 10 minutes later, the unfriendly valet brings a nice Audi around the corner and the whole passenger side is completely smashed in. The family who owned the car was extremely surprised and tried to handle the situation peacefully but the valet was unresponsive and realistically did not care. It was handled terribly, they were very rude and it took 45 minutes to get my car that I paid $30 to have valeted. I would not reccommend this hotel to anyone, as nice as the rooms were, the parking/valet situation had enough impact to never have my business again.
The room was clean
Over priced. Valet damaged a guests car while I was there
Bathroom floor looked dirty, pillows were uncomfortable.
Location, shuttle, clean sheets!!
Breakfast could be included in the price room
Location, spacious room años bathroom, wifi works properly
I do not have anything really to point out.
Cleanliness and comfort.
