Houston Marriott Westchase
Travel Blogs from Houston
So my adventure began today in Houston. After effectively two sleepless nights in a row, there was no time for jet lag with my ride picking me up at 7:30am this morning. Joe Eck - Completions Global Account Manager - picked me up, driving 1.5 hours to the hotel, and drove me out to SRC (Schlumberger Rosharon Campus), to talk sand control and reservoir monitoring. Mark Teek was my tour guide (SRC Client Relations Manager), and gave me the run down in the SRC facility. ...
... and great weather. We are here doing an overnight and back on the bus in the morning. Tomorrow will be lots of scenery from the bus. It's funny how things work out!!!
I will work on the pictures. You will love the pictures from a little town called "Old Mesilla." Plenty of great pictures and lots of history. Billy the Kid hung there and allegedly haunts the courthouse where he was ...
... where are they from, what do they do, children, hobbies, vacations, you name it. 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 ...
... to myself. This wasn't Kristin's first rodeo. Ha ha!
As we pulled up, I couldn't help but notice that a large banner announcing an exhibition of works from Picasso Black and White. I figured that would be a good place to start my exploring, so I entered the large building and purchased my tickets. As I looked at the map, I realized that there are actually three buildings that comprise the art museum, and I was in the midst of a grand ...
... ok! So, the next month was very long and a crazy process of me calling the embassy every day and saying “what is the status of my visa” and them giving me a very rude comment back. By the embassy I have been hung up on, called names, and treated like a child. I turned my papers officially in on May 2nd and the visa process took around a month. I had originally booked my flight on June 12th to leave on Pakastani Airline to ...

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!!!
