How to Get There
I think this has got to be the most unique experience: you are at the hospital, and your family is in the hotel -- but you are all in the same general building! There is a hall that joins the two buildings, and a covered bridge that joins to the medical center, but if you are talking convenience, then this is it. The room was super comfortable, spacious and adequately appointed. I was on a high floor so noise was non-existent. The in room coffee was nice, with a small mini-fridge for your convenience. Three negatives: The elevators have got to be the slowest I have seen in a long time (if you give yourself 5-8 extra minutes just to get the elevator, you will be OK); I was shocked at how expensive food was in the convenience store on the first level ($6.95 for oatmeal!); the iron didn't work. It even said "drip-free" on the side of the iron, but basically drenched my clothes with water rather than steam (at least I had 10 hours for them to dry before putting them on).
I think, when talking about this particular Marriott, location is the main syntax. The hotel has been around for a while and has undergone more than one face-lifts. The staff is very affable and available. They have been without reproach. The rooms are somewhat modernistic, but very clean. You won't see but buildings or the back of other buildings. So, keep the window curtains close. The gym is nothing to brag about, but does have a few machines and free-weights, enough for a maintenance workout. It's reasonably priced. definitely recommended if your in Houston for business in the hospital/museum district.
I just want to start of by saying the service at this hotel is phenomenal. Genet at the restaurant on the second floor was so unbelievably kind and helpful to me and just gave astonishing service. So happy with my stay here.
