Three Day Potty Training

A travel blog entry by birdhelen1

... and caregivers should ensure that they make enlightened judgements anytime purchasing these systems in order to avoid a "square peg in a round hole predicament" Indeed, three day potty training describes a systematic training process that gives your toddler more confident and organized. It explains the way to handle stubborn kids or those who are less enthusiastic including those who fear using the potty. In addition it ...

... conversation drifted to Matt being handsome and having great head of hair. Although Dennis was a rotund 72 year old with little
hair atop his head, he thought the idea of Matt having long hair was a great idea. I instantly didn’t care for Dennis anymore even though Matt seemed inspired to let his hair grow long again.

We got off the road early with Paula conjuring up her “pick a hotel mojo” and running the drill where she ...

Day 14 - Back to Houston

A travel blog entry by chadspurgeon


Fortunately, everything was on time for our flight home today. We took a taxi to Charles De Gaulle and departed right around 12:30pm. Our 8.5 hour flight to Washington, DC was fairly smooth (except for a little turbulence upon our descent). We got through customs and immigration really fast and headed back to the concourse to catch our flight to Houston. Coincidentally, our friends Donald and Luz ...

Rainy day in Texas

A travel blog entry by louiseandblake


We woke to the sound of heavy rain and our room being like a sauna for the first morning of our ranch experience.

We had booked in to go horse riding at 10am but it was still hammering down and therefore we cancelled. We took the opportunity of having nothing on in the morning to cooking a hot breakfast of bacon and eggs. The bacon in the US really does suck being very thin and half ...

... the columns start collapsing . The library houses enough books to read 1 per day for 300 years. 6 doors are amongst book shelves which open to let more light through the windows behind the book shelves. All book shelves and books are numbered. Pair of globes made in 17th century are in library. The library houses handwritten books. The oldest being from 9th century. In 5 days we have walked 20.8 miles. We still have 6 days left. Hope to hit 50 ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews JW Marriott Houston

    Unlike any Marriott Hotels in the country!!


    Very impersonal front desk clerk on afternoon shift. Lacked the warmth and welcome you feel in Marriott and Four Seasons.

    Great Deal! Family Loved It


    Family spent two nights at New Years to go shopping at Galleria

    JW Marriott does not respect privacy!


    I have been a business traveler for more than nine years and wanted to post an experience I had recently at the JW Marriott in Houston, Texas. Apparently, the JW Marriott does not consider personal privacy to be a priority. I had requested a wake up call, and in response someone broke into my room (past the security bolt I had engaged) and saw me completely naked. When I spoke to the General Manager, he explained that he had actually authorized the break-in because I had not picked up the phone for the wake up call. In my experience, the wake up call is typically automated; and even if not, it typically ceases to ring after 3 or 4 times. I was in the shower and busy getting ready for the day when someone broke into my room without even so much as announcing them self or their intention. For all I knew, someone off the street was breaking into my room. But when I learned from the General Manager that this break-in was actually authorized, I was (and continue to be) appalled beyond explanation. The General Manager provided a weak excuse that this was in my best interest as I may have suffered a seizure or some such thing. To me, the fact that someone does not pick up what is typically an automated wake up call is hardly reason to jump to the most outlandish conclusion that something drastic is occurring with the guest in the room. If the JW Marriott wishes to practice such an inappropriate policy, I believe other travelers should be aware.

    Good location, excellent staff


    The JW is conveniently located across from the Galleria in Houston, as well as 610-handy for excursions away from shopping. The staff in the entire property were attentive and pleasant, particularly in the restaurant.

    The rooms are in need of a rehab, as noted by other contributors, which is currently in progress. The furniture and fixtures are dated...finding an electrical outlet to charge more than one cell phone and use the iron at the same time was a challenge! The room was extremely stuffy, and no amount of A/C helped. Look for packages like the 2 for breakfast.

    Overall, a decent property with a some opportunities to improve, which is already underway.

    Will only stay in a marriott if nothing else available


    I took my daughter on a cruise for her 21st b-day out of Galveston and we stayed at the JW the night before the cruise. Our stay was so awful I will only stay on a marriott if there is nothing else available.

    Beautiful Hotel, Wonderful Service


    The JW Marriott is conveniently located across the street from the Galleria Mall in Uptown Houston. It offers a free shuttle to and from the mall. The hotel is beautiful, the beds are comfortable, and it offers upscale amenties. There is even a second small tv and telephone for the bathrooms. The staff is so wonderful and makes you feel like royalty. It is definitely worth the money.

    Great Location, But Desperately In Need Of Renovation!


    After reading all the reviews of for the hotel on this website, I had high expectations, but unfortunately they were not met. The hotel is in a great location with the Galleria mall just across the street, but the hotel rooms are quite outdated and had extensive wear (dirty walls, air conditioner vents, carpet, etc.).

    There are 2 Marriotts in the area. This one has a better location, but the other is in better shape overall. I travel a lot with business and it was always my understanding that the JW Marriott's are a step above the regular Marriott hotels, but unfortunately it's not true here.

    An excellent Hotel. Elegent.


    Mt wife and I had a most enjoyable 4th of July vacation at this hotel. We were placed in the"Tower", 19th floor, with use of the spa, pool, and other amenities. The staff were receptive to our needs, extremely professional in their decorum and presentation, and always presented a aire of confidence. The room was large and elegently furnished. The king bed was super comfortable with large fluffy pillows. The towels were top quality and very soft. Absolutely no noise from the hallways and the view of the Galleria and the surrounding area from the window was awsome. Self-parking was only $14 and quite a bargin. The restaurant was extremely good. The waite-staff was always there to keep the glasses full. This is a big plus! We highly recommend this hotel to any and all. You will not be disappointed.

    Kids loved the indoor/outdoor pool!


    we enjoyed the rooms and the staff, but the best part was the pool and the price!

    Great place to stay; terrible employees


    The location is great; just walk across the street to the Galleria. Down the stret, great nightclubs for 30/45 somethings. The rooms are clean, fairly large. Nice health club w/ large weight room. Not much so far as dining and dancing in the hotel. The Concierge and the front desk help were terrible! At one point we stood at the Concierge desk for several minutes while the Concierge talked on the phone. It sounded like a personal call at that! Email me for more info.I'd say it's a 4.5 to 5.
