I happen to come across a churrascaria named Nelore while browsing through the pages of a magazine while in Houston. My Garmin navigator brought me there without any hassle. I was greeted by the receptionist and was seated immediately. Well, it was around 630 pm, so still early. But for my hungry stomach, any more hour is already over-fasting. I …

St. Francis is the patron saint and next to our hotel is a chapel dedicated to him. while we were looking around we witnessed two weddings taking place there.

Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree Hotel Houston Downtown
Nothing about this hotel was unpleasant. The warm gourmet chocolate chip cookie you get at check-in will make you want to stay at a Doubletree time and time again. The bar at this hotel is open until 2am and the bartender was friendly and on-point! The lobby and bar area is very relaxing and beautiful. I enjoyed my king bed room on the 10th floor. It wasn't a corner room and I was afraid it wasn't going to be terribly big, but it was surprisingly spacious. The only thing I had a problem with was the iron was old and would not steam, and housekeeping promptly brought another one. There was no full length mirror which also disappointed me. However, those were very minor things. The staff was very friendly. When you arrive, the valet will write their extension on your card they give you. They want you to call them for your car before you leave your room. I had absolutely no wait for my car, it was parked right out front by the time I came down to the lobby. I would not hesitate to stay here again when I visit Houston.
I stayed at the Doubletree Houston - Allen Center for 4 days for business in July. I'm really suprised at all of the glowing reviews on this site. The hotel was just adequate. Not adequate for an urban Doubletree -- adequate for a small town roadside motel. The rooms were just kinda OK, cleanliness was acceptable, and the lobby/decor was so-so. The exercise facility was extremely poor: only 1 treadmill, a cheapo lightweight model with no heart rate monitors, 2 ellipticals, 2 bikes, and TVs wtih the channel change button broken and no remote. No pool either. You had to use valet parking which was slow and cost $20/day - no self park. High speed internet was $10/day and it was not wireless. I was attending a conference in the hotel, and the food for our meetings was really poor: not just hotel bland, but bad. The only really good thing about this hotel was that I called for an early checkin and they were very accomodating about that. The location was right in downtown Houston - but there is nothing in downtown Houston. Also, access to the hotel from the freeway was difficult, although the hotel was very close to the freeway. Long story short: For the money, stay somewhere else. I'm sure there are much nicer hotels in Houston.
Highly recommend this hotel
I have stayed here on several occasions and have always been very pleased with accomodations and staff. I am a HiltonHonors Gold member and usually get the upgraded suite room, but even the regular rooms are extremely nice.
The only complaint I have is that the food isn't the best in the world, but that is often a complaint at DoubleTree hotels. The cookies are great though and, realistically, there are plenty of places to eat in Houston and if you don't want to drive the hotel is always willing to give you a ride in one of the hotel vehicles.
It's time for me to express my great satisfaction with this hotel as, well, a place to sleep. My wife and I have stayed here 4-5 times over the past 3 years; we've also stayed at Icon, Magnolia, Warwick (pre-renovation), Derek, and Lancaster. Each of those hotels is more interesting, and a good room at the Lancaster - on an affordable night - is a very good room indeed. But the "rounded-corner" deluxe room at the Doubletree is as spacious and comfortable as any, is very safe for a klutz like me who tends to bump into sharp edges, and is exceptionally affordable (at least on a weekend). I've had no problem with noise in the halls, and I'm a light sleeper. The valet parking is unusually efficient and polite, the elevators are quick, and the lobby is quieter than the other hotels I referenced (the cool young crowd at the Icon is just not my thing). The breakfast buffet has gotten worse, however, and needs to be upgraded with decent scrambled eggs, a greater variety of fibrous fruit and cereals, and more full-bodied coffee.
I was a bit apprehensive about staying here for 11 nights as most of my colleagues seemed to think the place was a bit of a dump, in contrast to most reviews on here.
Excellent hotel - great comfort
Stayed for one night for a concert in Houston. Arrived very late and enjoyed the two cookies (didn't know they did that and since room service ended at midnight it was needed!).
Had a great room top floor of hotel
Breakfast buffet is very good and opened early in the morning.
Great rate - great stay!!
Took advantage of a GREAT weekend rate (this hotel is downtown, caters more to weekday business traveler types) that got us a king room with breakfast for two in the restaurant the next morning. Renovation must be complete (see last review) because our room was VERY nice, especially for the price. Down comforter on the bed, plenty of pillows, very nice bathroom with fluffy towels, etc. All the staff were very nice - valets, concierge, in the restaurant, front desk, gift shop. Great view of downtown, great location as we were in town to sightsee and take in a basketball game. We were VERY pleased with our whole experience and would stay here again without hesitation.
Just stayed at the Doubletree Allen Center last weekend for business. This property is located on the Western edge of downtown with direct access to the Houston "tunnel system". They do have a downtown shuttle, so transportation is readily available.
I booked a night at this hotel over the internet with the "pay now" option (to get a reduced rate). This was supposed to be a relaxing experience after attending the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on Sat., March 12.
Well-appointed rooms, uptight staff
We stayed here January 2005. The hotel is undergoing a major renovation. The rooms were very nice and well-appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable. We did have to call security, as the guests next door to us were extremely loud and boisterous at 2 a.m.. The hotel staff quickly took care of the problem.
We felt that the staff was somewhat uptight and stuffy. A little more friendliness would have been in order. The restaurant offered a tasty breakfast buffet for a nominal charge.
As with all downtown hotels, it was kind of a pain to deal with valet parking everytime you wanted to go somewhere which meant having sufficient money on hand for tipping. Parking was $10 per day.
