Location, spacious room años bathroom, wifi works properly
Breakfast could be included in the price room
Cleanliness and comfort.
I do not have anything really to point out.
Rooms nice and updated. Shuttle was nice car, didn't have to load into a van with a bunch if other people. Quick response time.
No convenient parking!!!! Had to pay $28 for valet parking. The policeman or security out front during busy time, blowing whistle, didn't give you time to get in or out of parking spaces after 6pm.
You could have been in London swank or New York hip. Just had a really good vib, all the staff ready to help, nice boutique style accom and made a perfect stop off before flying out. Did not eat here as the restaurant is closed on a Sunday but locals we met said it is very good.
Nothing really annoyed so nothing to add, why knit pick I say!
Welcome Location Speedy resolution of a couple of issues
Loud music from a wedding party - but we were warned and given a top-floor room, and it did not go on very late
A beautiful hotel with an energetic and helpful staff. Our stay was so great. The hotel was hip, clean, and in a great location to other things in the downtown area. Great job Sam, and I can't wait to stay again.
great location, friendly service, very nice building
Super rooms, super wifi, and DT location. Great value and would come back again.
Front desk staff couldn't have been more helpful; bar staff also friendly and gave good advice for drinks and food - the fish tacos were perfect!
Waitress in the main restaurant needed more training; make sure you're not on the 2nd floor - The Sam has many functions and they are constantly moving tables and chairs to accommodate them - they are stored on the 2nd floor and on two occasions were moved early in the morning and after midnight.
I loved everything! The only reason I would give it a poor rating would be to make sure it would not be completely booked so I could alway get a reservation.
Close to minute maid park
no vending machines
The hotel is modern and comfortable and is reasonably well placed for a range of restaurants on Main Street. Most of the staff are helpful and pleasant.
The area in which the hotel is situated seemed to be a rendezvous for street people. There were at least twenty sleeping rough on the corner opposite the hotel. The 'valet' parking at $28 consisted of the driver picking up the car at the entrance and driving it 30 yards, turning the corner onto some void land between the hotel and the next building and then leaving it in the open. On the second morning the police were in attendance as one unfortunate 'valet' parking customer had had his car broken into during the night whilst in the 'care' of the parking staff. The major problem with this hotel is its restaurant in the evening (it's fine for breakfast) which is sterile in atmosphere and grossly overpriced for the quality of the food which it serves. Whilst my wife and I were dining (c$130 for two entree's, two desserts - selected from an extremely short menu - one glass of wine and one beer), a family of four came in, sat down, read the menu and then left and took a cab to go and eat somewhere else - my wife and I wished we had been able to join them. Service was slow as there was only one member of staff on duty - we had to chase up our drinks. There was a group of four/five people who were having a taster session ahead of a wedding and they were clearly more important than us as immediate customers.
The shuttle was wonderful and fast. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The bar closed earlier than it was supposed to. We should have been notified of the wedding that was taking place that used the entire lobby and was loud. Room service was said to take only 16-20 and ended up taking 45 minutes!! We weren't able to eat the food because it took so long and we had to go.
I handed in laundry and Italy was not sent off. This was on Friday. Unwashed clothing returned on Monday despite assurances over weekend that I would receive my clean clothes back. Poor show!!! Makes for a difficult following week when travelling with a bag of dirty washing. I would not recommend my staff to use this hotel on a business trip. No real concern and no solution offered to my situation.
We arrived 4 hours early for check in and the man t the front desk was very nice and very helpful! He checked with house keeping to make sure we got a room right away. We did not spend much time at the hotel but it was within walking distance to many bars and resturaunts and the ball park (which is why we were there).
Nothing bad to say.
The bed was nice.
I didn't like that there was no refrigerator in room.
clean and comfortable beds
the valet price for vehicle was extremely expensive. wish the room had a fridge
I like the Hotel,the location,the Staffs,the Environment, and Their services.
There was no Refrigerator inside my room,and I found it difficult to preserve some of my items. They got spoilt. The Wifi network was not stable
$100 for a 4 star hotel. The bed was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in my life and the pillows matched. The bathroom was very nice. The coffee maker was a kuerig and was the best complimentary hotel coffee i've ever had. The complimentary shuttle was very convenient and the driver was very nice. The lobby was modern and clean. The tv was inset with the wall. They placed me in a room at my request, facing west. They gave me a late check out when i was running behind. Awesome hotel and if I can get another good deal, I will definitely stay again!
-No ice machine -No vending machine, therefore pushing the mini-bar options which are more expensive. ($6 for a small bag of less than a dozen, quarter sized chocolate chip cookies) -Did not provide enough sugar and creamer to go along with the coffee and when I requested more I was told i would receive it outside my door by the following morning, but never did.
Located next to a metro station, very comfortable and clean rooms.
We asked for a taxi to be arranged for an early morning airport run which didn't turn up though the woman at the desk in the morning was helpful and rectified the error.
Courtesy car was convenient, location was within walking distance to many venues.
Housekeeping was a little stingy with the towels, too many homeless across street at mission after dark. Roof access would be nice as a smokers area.
Convenient location to the the theater district. Room was small yet intimate.
Staff seemed not to care about the details.
Great decor, very comfortable and fashionable room. Bed was extremely comfortable. I was booked in a handicap accessible room and the bathroom was great! Walk in shower, large, clean.
The surrounding neighborhood is not excellent, but the location being just a 5-minute walk from Minute Maid Park was great.
Breakfast was decent, didn't eat anything else at hotel. Bar was dead Friday night but jamming after the game on Saturday. Used the free shuttle to go to other bars. But plenty of bars near hotel to walk to. Great price for the location and ammenities.
