... 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 I didn't think Herb would get to interview anyone, but he got to talking to the man who owns the restaurant, founded by his grandfather and the folks sitting across from us, who turned out to be from Sweden. We've been watching cruise ships in the harbor outside our room, too. Tonight we placed bets on which ships would still be in port. It's been a great place to stay, the "Imperial ...

I groggily re-packed my computer and miscellaneous items, then Kristin and I remembered the meat. Peter was annoyed that we weren't ready, so he went downstairs to wait in the cab. I was really out of it. The whole situation was annoying and surreal. As I re-packed my meat, I hoped that the plane was actually going to be there this time.
... will need to rebook with a different airline or get a refund back.” I said okay great, well they are giving me the option to change days if I want, so why not leave earlier (the only reason I was leaving on that Wednesday is because it was cheaper in the middle of the week compared to a weekend) so I decided to leave May 31st and that way I can arrive in Spain on a Wednesday which would be easier on the family.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Houston Post Oak
My husband and I stayed at the Hilton on Post Oak Blvd. for four days as a little getaway from home. The service was grand. The room was very clean and comfortable. Although we realized that the hotel was in the center of the Galleria Area, the parking fees for the hotel was very steep - $20.00 a day to park your car and $10.00 for self-parking. Thank God we used Priceline for hotel fees. All and all we had a great time at the Hilton and the staff deserves all the tips and more that they receive.
I loved this hotel. The bedrooms were very nice and clean, as well as the bathrooms. The beds are very comfy! This was my first time staying in a Hilton hotel, and it won't be my last. For the price it is an awesome hotel. After having some problems with my reservations, the manager was quick to come to my rescue. The hotel staff are pleasant and accommodating! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Houston!
We stayed at the Hilton Post Oak and really enjoyed our stay. The valet employees are very nice (tell Murphy the "shoppers " said, "Hello" )and he remembered me from our visit before,,,they always get your car around quick! The front desk is very nice and go out of their way to get you the most comfortable room. The beds are soooo comfy. You just sink into them, and I am not getting you,,the comforter and pillows are great!
My wife and I stayed at this Hilton for one night in mid-May of 2005, having gotten the room for $40 through Priceline. What a bargain that turned out to be!!
Fantastic Renovation! Amazing Staff!
The renovation is complete and is excellent. Hilton Honors members will love the new Lounge. I stay here frequently and this is THE place to stay in Houston. The staff is simply amazing! Location is excellent and the new decor is wonderful.
Stayed for just one night while in Houston on business. A clean, well furnished hotel with fine service. Might be the best value in the Post Oak/Galleria area. Make sure to get a shoe shine, it was excellent. Will stay again for sure!!
The Doubletree was a major disappointment. We had two jr. suites and while they were very large with a balcony... the furniture was entirely outdated and disgusting. It looked like they bought it from a local trailor park. Our beday (french toilet) was leaking and truly a problem. As we were VIPS for the weekend, our car was parked out front the entire time by valet - so that it could be retrieved easily... even though the staff was horrible. The hotel provided a limousine and the experience was not welcoming - as we ended up walking back from the Galleria at 10pm - after waiting outside Neiman Marcus for 45 minutes - in 32 degree weather with rain because the lousy driver and concierge did not coordinate our pickup. The hotel is old and rundown.... luckily... the hotel will be getting a renovation and that is a major plus. God help anyone who stays here.
A room is a room is a....These could be stellar digs. If only there was a desk and a sitting area. The room was definitely large enough to easily accommodate both. And the bathroom. There should be two sinks and the tub, six inches wider. The service was really first class. We had a courteous driver take us to our restaurant one evening. The pool was very nice and the pool deck pleasant.
Good but nothing special
I stayed here for one night on business in November 2003. No real complaints with this hotel. But it wasn't anything special. On the plus side, my room was more spacious than the average hotel room. No high speed internet access in the rooms (surprising since this hotel seems to cater to a business crowd). Staff was very friendly and efficient.
Beautiful hotel from the outside, and inside the lobby. Had a late check in and there were no cookies! Bed was incredibly hard and uncomfortable, not what I expected of a doubletree. Nice balcony in the room. Parking was a bit expensive.
