... First time I'd seen how "alternate path" sand screens work. These screens allow gravel packing efficiency to be increased by diverting sand flow past bridging. Lee Jackson - Product Champion (Monitoring Completions) - gave me the run down on downhole sensors. The most amazing technology was the Wave Glide - a little kayak-style, remote operated, GPS tracking, data collection system, that can detect acoustic data from subsea well heads. Also discussed was Proteus ...

Today is dedicated to exploring Sorrento. It's an ancient city, huge cliffs, gigantic walls, and filled with quaint little shops. 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. We also did a little shopping, sat by the pool and had another delicious dinner at a restaurant that's been in business since 1930. During this trip, Herb has been interviewing people we meet ...
... reminded me of a line from Fiddler on the Roof, so I muttered it aloud. Peter asked me what that was from, so I told him. He said he'd never heard that ever, to which I replied that it was probably the most well known line from the musical. He declared, "No, it's not! This is the most famous thing from Fiddler on the Roof!" and proceeded to sing the opening lines to "If I Was A Rich Man." Clearly the delirium had gotten to us! Kristin ...
... it could take another week or 2, which originally was not what they said. So that weekend, I had a choice: I was either going to be miserable and worry all weekend about possibly missing my scheduled flight or I am going to just have faith knowing that everything works out. So, I choose to just let it be and know there is nothing that I could do and relax, enjoy my family and friends and be car less in Springdale (I gave my mom my car in Mtn. Home the week before). ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Americas - Houston
My new favorite hotel in Houston -- I prefer it over the 4 Seasons for several reasons -- HBO, cordless phone, large bathroom, long hallways (good for safe late night or early morning walks), coffee pot. Clean and comfortable and I found the staff to be friendly and helpful.
I recently spent one night 7/31 at Hilton Americas Houston hotel. 1600 Lamar
The hotel is in a great location and you would thing it would be a natural drawer for conferences, meetings and business trips. With its strategic location to the main sports centers (Minute Maid, Toyota Center, Convention Hall, etc) a meeting planner begins to salivate when they see the place and thing about the savings in trave expense, add in the grad diosece architecture of the first floor and you think that you have found the right hotel.
Pros and cons
First, the pros. Excellent location across from convention center and Compaq Center (Rockets), a few blocks from Minute Maid Field (Astros).
Comfortable accomodations, good restaurants, friendly staff.
The cons: Parking fee is a gouge. Lack of hot water at all times of morning and evening. Room cleaning sometimes doesn't occur until you are getting ready for dinner.
I am sure they are working things out since it is very new, and all in all, I would return.
DON'T LET THE HILTON NAME FOOL YOU!!! THE OPENING KINKS ARE STILL HERE, AND THEN SOME!!!I stayed in the hotel for 3 nights at the end of March 2004, and I have never had a worse time staying at a hotel. 1. The beds were so soft that a 3 month old baby literally sank when placed on top of the mattress. The mattresses were either used or were of super-cheap quality. I ended up with such bad back pain, and I'm in good health without prior issues. I ended up sleeping on the floor for the final 2 nights. I've slept better on gravel (no joke!). 2. The water pressure is so weak in the showers that I could not wash my hair w/ the shower water. I had to turn the water to bath mode to get adequate water pressure.3. I specifically asked the front desk for a room away from the elevators, and was told point-blank that my request would be accomodated only to find out when I took the elevator up to my room that I had a location RIGHT NEXT to the elevator!4. The hotel charges you $12 for self-parking and $22 for valet parking. The hotel actually charges you MORE (not less) if you are a hotel customer. I parked at a lot away from the hotel (paying $5 per day), but on the day of check-out, the hotel tried to charge me $12 per day for parking (AND tried to tack on some taxes for the parking fee as well). The taxes would not have applied to a non-hotel customer. I had to tell the front desk that I did not use their parking structure to get the fee taken off.5. The thermostat did not work adequately, and the room was either too hot or too cold.6. In summary, this hotel tries to use its good location (next to the basketball/baseball stadiums, next to convention center) to get a McHilton mass-turnout and provide poor quality of beds/rooms and service.DON'T LET THE HILTON NAME FOOL YOU!!!
The opening kinks are gone!
The opening kinks are out, from my experience. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms excellent, service just fine. I noted I was given only decaf with the complimentary coffee and I called housekeeping & they sent up two real coffees in a heartbeat. I enjoyed my stay tremendously. The location is right next to the Toyota Center and adjoins the George R.
Brown Convention Center, with Minute Maid Field two blocks away. There are three restaurants and a coffee bar on the property. Spencer's steakhouse is just ok, but the service was excellent and very friendly.
Downtown Houston is exciting and has been newly refurbished for the super bowl. I'd stay there again, even without the super hotwire rate!
I booked and prepaid for a room at the Hilton Americas with the understanding that I would be given a room with either two queen beds or one king size bed. At check-in my boyfriend and I were told they only had "Parlor Rooms" available, and we were sent to one of those.
Could be better ...
Lovely Hotel ... What I did not like ...
1. Car Valet was not a part of hotel ... this is not communicated ... when I arrived, I asked them my options and was told valet or Houston streets ... not true ...hotel has self parking adjacent to hotel 2. No Hot Water for bathing 3. Stayed in room 17045 - 2 double beds ... first bed has a mattress that is either old or broken ... it is not level ... please check it ...
This MUST BE REPLACED!
4. Can not walk out on street to night life
What I liked ....
1. hot tub and swimming area ...
2. staff was very gracious 3. 2 blocks from wonderful Josephine's rest ...
Book a Room for 3 nights $500.00 and got to stay for 1 night. No refund or coupon for another time nothing at all. We checked in on Friday night at 8:00 pm with our 2 small dogs which we paid an extra $50.00 for their stay. Saturday morning we left for AutoRama around 10:00 am and when we got back at about 4:00 to check on the dogs they were gone, needless to say I was having a panic attack so my husband called the front desk and they would not tell him anything but that the manager would be up to see us shortly. She got to the room with our dogs and informed us they could not stay there that for 1 they were disturbing other guest and also they could not be left there without one of us there. we could not very well take our pets with us to the autorama since no pets or aloud. so this meant we had to leave. without any refund at all and still charged us the $50.00 for the pets for 1 night.
New Hotel not equipped for large crowds
The new Hilton Houston Americas hotel is lovely but still has many kinks to work out before it constitutes a well-run luxury hotel.
I spent one night recently - the night prior to the Houston Marathon.
Check in was crowded but went smoothly. However, getting to my room was problematic. The hotel has multiple elevator banks but the elevator service was VERY slow. There were elevator lines in the lobby and we had to wait up to 10 minutes on our floor to retrieve a down elevator.
Our room had no toilet paper when we arrived. Our wake-up call never happened. The building temperature was frigid in parts and oppressively hot in others (elevators). TV checkout, which was encouraged, did not work. The parking card the front desk gave me to exit the garage did not work.
