Marriott Houston Airport at George Bush Intercontinental
Travel Blogs from Houston
So after a very nice 4 hour flight from Vancouver, we are here in Houston.After arrival we found a really great airport restaurant called PappaDeaux. Ross had the aliigator, I stuck with the shimp. Really enjoyable and 2 thumbs up for sure. A much better experience than my "strip search" at YVR prior to boarding our flight. I don't know what it is …
Fred and I flew in Friday afternoon and checked into the hotel. It's nice enough, round, and right in the middle of the airport. We went down to registration and got our name tags and tickets for the tour on Saturday. We had asked for the 777 simulator, but got the mystery tour at 0'dark:30. The reception was nice, good food, and I met Larry …
We got up at 6 AM to meet the bus for the 7:30 Mystery Tour. On the bus, they announced we would be on CO 9920 (check flightaware for the map), which is a 757 outfitted with AVOD (audio video on demand) and in seat power at all seats. New for CO. At the plane we got to walk around everywhere, take pictures of everything, and in general climb all …
Un po' scombussolato per aver viaggiato indietro nel tempo e per aver fatto un giro assurdo sopra l'islanda, la groenlandia e il canada per ingannare la rotazione terrestre e riparmiare tempo..ma sto bene! l'aeroporto è enorme..le bandiere americane, ovunque.
I got to the airport at about 9:30 ready to start my day. I got a bus ticket to the place where my bike was shipped. Then I waited. And... waited. And... waited. It felt like I was already in Mexico! Finally, an hour later, an angry bus driver took me to my bike. From there I headed south. After about 150 miles I stopped to check my directions at a …

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Houston Airport at George Bush Intercontinental
Since our flight was so early, we decided to return our rental car the night before and stay at the Marriott right at the airport to save as much time as possible. While the hotel was okay (clean room, dark and quiet) the attitude of the staff was unhelpful and nearly insulting. The hotel was experiencing problems with their escalators and some elevators. No staff were posted at key positions to assist arriving guests (including many elderly travelers)as they got off the underground tram from the airport and tried to figure out how to get up two floors to the lobby. The front desk staff were annoyed and unknowledgeable when we asked which elevators were in service.
Excellent place to stay
I love Marriott hotels. I rented a day room at the hotel for the layover between flights. The location right on the airport tram is excellent. The room was average but the bed was the most comfortable one I have slept in in a long time. The room was quiet and cool. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I stay in Marriott hotels whenever I can and have never been disappointed.
I chose this hotel primarily for its location and, if you have an early flight, it's the place to be. The airport tram stops in the hotel basement, and it takes literally about a minute to get to the terminals. That's the good news.
I stayed at this Marriott for 2 wknd nights. I chose this hotel because I do frequent Marriott and had an early morning flight to catch. This is the closest hotel to the terminals, which you can reach by an underground tram in a few minutes. The tradeoff for being so close to the airport is that there were fair amount of noise even though I stayed on the top floor. Otherwise, it's a regular Marriott. The self-parking is free. I had dinner at CK's. It was a nice meal although a bit pricey.
This hotel is too close to the airport. I am a light sleeper and between the road noise and the sound of planes I got very little sleep, and this after changing rooms to what was suposed to be the "quieter side of the hotel".
The food was not great and pricey, the room was clean, bed was comfortable, but the hotel staff seemed very new and inexperienced. When I asked for a couple of things, it took me several attemps to get what I needed as they just seemed to forget about me. Very courteous, just not very efficient.
Great place to stay
High end hotel adjoining Houston Bush Int'l Airport that caters to business people. Very accessible to the airport via a subway car system but also via a shuttle if you have lots of luggage which we had. You pay for everything extra from internet access, porters, parking, etc. but that's to be expected from such a high end hotel. The very best bed and bedding we've experienced in a while. Lovely rooms with lots of amenities. Great stay and we recommend this hotel especially if your flight out is very early morning.
Perfect Location for Hotel
My husband and I stayed here between flights from Richmond, VA to Ixtapa, Mexico. We arrived in the evening and were so impressed with the location of the hotel and how easy it was to get there from the airport. We left the next moring to catch our flight and had a nice quick checkout and made it very easily back to the airport thanks to the trams that took you to each terminal. We never heard a sound from the planes and enjoyed a nice room with a king size bed.
Confort and Convenience
This hotel is incredibly convenient if you need acomodations near the airport. It is inside Houston's Intercontinental Airport with direct access to the terminals. Perfect if you need to catch an early morning flight. All ammenities you can expect from a business hotel plus friendly staff and tidy facilities. Enormous gift shop at the lobby. Nice bar and restaurant with views of the runways. Soundproof rooms. If only all airport hotels were like this...
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights last May when he got a job offer in the Houston area to try to find a house. This hotel is perfect in every way. Our room overlooked the airport concourse and we could not hear a thing! It was absolutly quiet as we watched planes come and go out of our window. The gift shop and the restuarants are also great. We really enjoyed dining in the revolving room on the top floor. Downstairs there is a tram to take you back and forth to the airport which is great if you just want to go over to eat or walk around. It runs every 3 minutes until after midnight and you can't even hear the tram or announcements anywear in the hotel except downstairs. There are several seating areas with couches and chairs throughout the huge lobby that are great to hang out in and read the paper or have a cup of coffee. The staff was very friendly and bell boys and valets were always available without a wait. This hotel was so perfect that we can't help but find flaws in all of the hotels that we have stayed at since then (even though they have all been truely great) I could not imagine staying at any other hotel when in Houston.
This is standard business Marriott with a handy airport location. I had a business meeting here and, except for late night arrivals, this is this hotel's strongest selling point. There is a convenient underground tram that services all of the airport's terminals, with the Marriott one of its stops, so you can arrive in the midst of a Houston thunderstorm and never have to brave the elements, wait for an outdoor shuttle or shell out for a very short cab ride. The underground tram runs every three minutes in two circular directions, making last minute connections easy, in theory.
