Sad to see they Hot Tub no longer there. Staff was GREAT!!! Friday night outside bar was nice -- same duo singing for the 4th year in a row (they are good though).
Rooms clean! Shuttle to Casino very accommodating as always. Casino package was not available this year when we booked, they they brought it back but did not have the same value - so just booked regular rooms.

Very nice

We three gals found The Woodlands to be a very pleasant place to spend an evening. The reception was friendly and efficient. The room was sparking clean and beds comfortable. We went to karaoke bar down on the riverfront and enjoyed the river, pizza snacks, and wine

Cute, but unhappy about canceled rock of ages

Only stayed one night, was giving a gift card. It was cute, the staff was very nice and friendly. I was hesitant to stay a Sunday night, but chose to do so because they had "Rock of Ages" scheduled, so we figured that would be good entertainment on a Sunday night. Well that cancelled, someone mentioned because of rain, but the executive lounge was the backup plan.
Ordered a macchiato at crescenzos... They clearly didn't know how to make one, and it was undrinkable. Also, used woodlands gift card at Shogun, but they couldn't put the balance remaining on the gift card back on. They made it right by giving us cash, so that was cool.
