I chose to stay there because it is located in the theater district and Alley Theater, Philharmonic, Ballet and Opera are either across the street or a block further away. After performances the lobby, bar and restaurant are the watering hole for the people interested in the arts of Houston. Very nice!

The guest services manager is an exceptional young man. There's a tan wan with glasses and excessive jewelry working the front desk that was dismissive and overly stressed out. Still a great stay however the woman was overwhelmed and unorganized as we were waiting over 3 hours and missed our show which we had purchased tickets for because we could not get into our room in time to dress for the evening.
