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!
Great location, staff, and beds
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!
The breakfast buffet is wonderful. Made to order omelets w/ several fillings, very fresh fruit, oatmeal, muffins, cereal, juice,, all in a very relaxing atmosphere w/ a view of the city.
My mother and I love to stay here while shopping in Houston,,the location is just wonderful, and you don't have to get up on the Frwy/or Hwy when you need to leave out. The Galleria is 1 or 2 blocks up, w/ very little traffic.
Have a fun trip.
This place is nice...
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!!
The location of the hotel is extremely convenient, as there is nearby access to the west loop (I-610) that gets you throughout Houston relatively quickly. Of course, this area is also the most highly trafficked in the entire city, and much of it is under construction, so you need to be strategic about when you drive through the area. Nonetheless, the location was ideal for us.
The lobby is spectacular, even though it's a bit more modern than my tastes might prefer. The spaciousness and openness of the entire lobby area are reflective of the quality of the hotel. I had been booked in a room with two double beds. When I asked to be switched to a king room, the man at the front desk was friendly and helpful, without any condescension toward my cheap Priceline reservation.
The room was great. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was spacious, with a separate room for the toilet and shower (which I always appreciate). There was a tiny balcony that looked out over the Galleria area. It's not a functional balcony to sit or spend any time there, but it's nice to be able to walk outside and look around the city.
My only disappointment was the expensive parking.
We only stayed here one night, so we didn't get a very clear sense of all of the perks and quirks of the hotel. In our short time there, though, we were extremely impressed. Given the opportunity, I would stay here again in a heartbeat!!
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!!
Disgusted with Doubletree
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.

Our main reason for being in Houston was to visit the Johnson Space Center (JSC). We arrived at 10am and got a spot right by the entrance, because there were not many people there. We immediately jumped on the site tour. First stop was the actual ground control center used for the 60s to 80s rocket launches. The current ground control center is one floor down. Second stop on the tour was a building where they are developing vehicles and ...
... a weekend so the traffic was not too bad. Seabrook is a really nice seaside town. For dinner we found an independent restaurant called Seabrook Classic Cafe. Sam had crab cakes and I had chicken schnitzel, and we shared a homemade key lime pie for dessert. The food was really yummy and there were lots of locals both eating in and taking out so it was a good ...
... Another 30 minutes. We taxi, there are several planes ahead of us. It begins to rain. I nap while waiting. We're finally gunning the engines for take off. We speed down the runway...only to brake suddenly. We wait. "This is Captain Mike. We had to abort take off as a flight coming in had to switch runways because of the thunderstorm and flew directly in our take off path. Well turn around and try this again." Hey...we were only an hour late ...
... to see if the changes I had read about that were being introduced by Homeland security to be more friendly etc... Would make any difference. First thing I noticed was that there were a lot more desks open and that the staff directing you into the queueing mechanism were pleasant and actually seemed to understand what they were trying to achieve. They also seemed to be mostly called Gladys and looked like they could sing in a lively gospel choir. Next were the signs ...
... miles of tunnel systems that allow people to travel from street to street all underground, there are shops no food outlets down there also No taxis are allowed to roam the streets looking for fares, they wait at designated areas and are then directed to clients by radio After the bus trip we decided to go and visit the tunnel system, after having a coffee underground we came back up as there was a Veterans Day parade going on, this is ...
