... as well as one big 'free' bbq for the general public; the livestock and crafts competition (animals, sewing, baking, writing etc submitted for judging) and the rodeo - bull and sheep riding.
We got there about 3.30pm as agreed, but the others who were on the usual Texan time arrived about an hour later. As our tickets were only for the bbq zone and the carnival area, we headed straight to the rides. The kids thought they were fantastic - some were similar ...
The hype is building as we pack our bags for our 7 day cruise on the Carnival Magic leaving from Galveston, Texas. Checking and double checking the weather as heavy fog is expected tomorrow to delay the arrival of the Magic. We are hoping & praying that it clears & all will be on time. We are due to set sail at ...
... park from a typical TV show, and it was the poor and run down version of TV trailer parks..... the rough area of Houston I'm guessing!! So a rather rapid exit out of there and we searched for the next one, while this one did meet our purpose, it was no Arlington RV park! So we cooled off in the pool and then locked ourselves in the RV and set in for the night.
Houston, mission completed..... prepare for departure to Louisiana.......
Day Two Hundred and Seven - Monday 1st April 2013
We awoke to find that Manchester United had been knocked out of the FA Cup by Chelsea in the early hours of the morning our time. We had breakfast and took a taxi to Cancún Airport with a very talkative driver and a very cracked windscreen. Check in went smoothly and we had an early lunch at the airport just before boarding our flight to Austin, Texas. Fortunately we took off on time, as we ...
... I was able to board the plane. Unfortunately, or possibly fortunately, since I had changed my ticket last minute, I was put in the exit row. That's right I was the one armed guy there to help you in case of an emergency.
The first flight was the longest, and I was disappointed that this airplane did not have the built in TVs, I had been looking forward to watching the Life of Pi. I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Houston Marriott Westchase
Stayed at this Marriott over the 4th of July weekend. Staff was very nice and pleasant from the moment we checked in. Unfortunately they weren't very helpful when it came to directions and things happening around Houston (I believe another reviewer had the same complaint). I asked where one would go to see the fireworks and no one knew. I finally found someone at the hotel willing to look at the newspaper to tell me where and what time the fireworks were. I live in NYC and I can tell anyone who asks where our fireworks are and what time they start. I didn't think I was asking an unusual question. We pretty much got lost every time they gave us directions. Thank god I pre-printed maps from google prior to my trip!
Nice Hotel, Clean, Stylish, Good Breakfast, near a lot of good restaurants,
Easy access to the westside of Houston
I stay here just about everytime I'm in town to visit friends and family. The hotel underwent significant upgrades since changing from an Adam's Mark to a Marriott. Parking is free and easy since you can park in the front or side of the building yourself. The lobby is spacious and the staff are pleasant and attentive. The rooms and bathrooms have been updated significantly and are now modern and quite clean. The beds come with more than enough pillows and are very comfortable. Free wireless internet is available. Weekend rates are a steal!
Highly recommend this hotel
Upon check-in, the service was exceptional. Room was nicely appointed and very clean. Hotel location has easy access to downtown and ample self-parking. The dinning at the hotel was above average, and several other options near by. Pool and workout facilities appeared well kept.
I highly recommend this hotel, and would stay here again.
I am completing my third stay at this hotel in a month for a total of 11 nights. This hotel was previously an Adam's Mark that converted to a Marriot in July 2004. There is a previous posting on this website from 2002, I believe, that complains of a bad experience. Since the Marriott take over, everything has been excellent during my three stays.
When I arrived, there were 2 blown bulbs in 2 of the 4 lamps in the room.
PERFECT!!! Will stay here all visits to Houston
This was the best trip to Houston I have ever had. The hotel was beautiful, the pool was incredible, and the staff was polite, kind and attentive. I will never stay anywhere else but here when I make my trips to Houston. You won't be dissapointed if you stay at this hotel. ***** Five stars in my book.
The pool is awesome. It is an inside/outside pool. My kids absolutely loved it. They did not want to leave the pool for anything.
Stayed in this hotel in March 2002 attending a high school student organization convention. Three adult sponsors assigned room with one bed-COZY!! Four large teenage boys per room-1 bed-floor very hard. Front desk not concerned at all-housekeeping very nicely promised rollaway beds-never delivered during the four days we were there!! I finally located a WalMart and bought sleeping bags so they didn't have to cover up at night with pool towels!! While trying to load up, our lock froze-after security tried to open it for 45 minutes, the lock had to be taken apart and battery replaced (room 445-remember???). In hurry to get checked out, left some items behind-security and housekeeping promised via phone to send or notify of search to find them-one month later, STILL WAITING!!! Rude waiters in restaurant evidently upset over all those teenagers!! That's who attend these student conventions!! Overall bad experience!! We could certainly tell that we were a captive audience!! We were the "lucky" ones, some schools (with confirmation letters in hand)were put up in other motels because the front desk gave their rooms to other guests. This meant their attendees had to be shuttled to all meeting and competitions-very inconvenient!! Definitely would not recommend to anyone!!!
