Historical Traveler Reviews Houston Marriott Westchase
Very Nice Hotel..
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!
The rooms were very nice even though the bed was a bit to firm for my taste. It was very quiet except our last night when someone was lost (or maybe drunk) and tried to come into our room and was annoyed when his key didn't work in our door. When I got up to see what the problem was, he realized he was at the wrong room. The pool was nice, not as great as I expected.
All in all, it was a very nice hotel. My boyfriend was impressed especially since it was only $79 a night. The breakfast was good for the price. Can't speak for lunch or dinner since we didn't eat there.
I would definitely recommend this hotel if you want something out of the way and for a good price. Hotels in downtown Houston were well into the $150 plus area. I would definitely stay there again if I'm ever in the Houston area.
Marriott Westchase & Men Clay court Tennis Tournament
Nice Hotel, Clean, Stylish, Good Breakfast, near a lot of good restaurants,
Very close to the Westside Tennis Club,Nice Indoor outdoor pool, The pool closes at 11:00pm but they turn off the hot tub early for some reason, We asked maintenance to turn it back on at 10:30 pm put they pretended like it was broke, then 8:00 am next morning it was working again, strange huh,
Hotel Staff was pretty clueless, no one could recommend a place outside the hotel to eat breakfast, were unable to give directions or recommendations for local tourist attractions or events,
Over heard another guest talking to the clueless Concierge, and had to help them myself, find the International festival.
Marriott website listed that the hotel ran a courtesy shuttle to the local mall, but when asked about it played pass the buck then offered to call a cab,
Asked if the courtesy shuttle could drop me off at the tennis club, which is less than 3 miles away, same thing offered to call a cab,(tournament was great highly recommended, parking poor, hilton accross the street offered hotel shuttle service)
Service at the restaurants we went to was also poor, so maybe people on this side of town are just not helpful,
Hotel Very Nice, great price $35 night on priceline, Staff back to the training room with you, Your in the Hospitality industry, act hospitably, we are out of town guests at your hotel,
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.
Houston Marriott Westchase is a Great Hotel: Bring Your Bathing Suit
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.
The standard rooms are a little small, but very nice with every ammenity. They are tastefully decorated in blues, and maize with butter-colored walls and granite countertops. If you can get a larger room, the extra square footage is nice to have. The hotel has ample complimentary parking.
This hotel also has a great indoor/outdoor pool and very nice outdoor lounge chairs. I was here in December and one day it was almost 80 degrees and sunny. The pool was fabulous. I recommend you bring your swimming trunks in case you are here on such a day.
Service is very polite, prompt, and professional. The location of the hotel is excellent - - right near the intersection of the Sam Houston Tollway and the West Park Tollway 1 block south of the intersection of Westheimer and Briar Park. This is critical for Houston because these toll roads make access to almost everypart of the city very easy. You will need to buy an eztag at the Harris County Toll Road Authority but it's well worth it if you're going to be in Houston for any amount of time and will be driving around. Go to eztagstore for information. Otherwise, you'll have to take the regular interstates and roads which are very crowded most of the day.
This hotel also has a business center with free computer access. I believe you can print out up to 20 sheets at no charge. This was very nice.
The restaurant is average, but there are so many restaurants right in the area that it's not a big deal. The hotel is located right off Westheimer which is a main east-west thoroughfare with tons of restaurants, shopping, etc. etc. right near the hotel.
Possible warning: The only possible warning is that the rooms do not have a fan control for the air conditioning/ heat. There is a thermostat for each room, but you cannot raise or lower the fan speed. Air circulates continuously at one speed. I was here during very mild weather so the system kept all three of the rooms I stayed in very comfortable. I would wonder about the summer when Houston is very hot and humid. Tip: If you stay here during hot weather, I would request a room with an eastern exposure to avoid the blistering afternoon sun baking your windows.
Other than this caveat, I can heartily recommend this hotel. I plan on staying her for at least two more trips to Houston in January.
Good place to stay
When I arrived, there were 2 blown bulbs in 2 of the 4 lamps in the room.
I left a note for housekeeping, and the next day one bulb was replaced. The following day I had unscrewed the other blown bulb. The maid must have picked up on the hint and installed a new bulb.
It took 2 days to get coffee/tea accessories replenished, but after day 2 all was 100% o.k.
The room was comfortable, but can't really understand that it is necessary to install the TV such that the only place to watch it is from the beds - and not from the armchair.
The room also featured a very comfortable office-chair and a table well suited as a desk. This coupled with complimentary high speed wireless internet access suited me and my laptop very well. No disturbances from other rooms/guests.
I did not use the pool and health club, but this is available without further charge.
I'll most likely stay at this hotel next time I visit Houston, and can therefore recommend it to others.
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.
Beware of This Hotel
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!!!

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 ...
... us out to the ranch which was not even 5 minutes up the road, we could have walked only it's illegal to walk up a highway which is sensible because us donuts would have walked it. The ranch was a two story log cabin, there were horses everywhere in the surrounding fields. How exciting!!! We went around the side and found even more horses all saddled up, good job they had picnic benches under waterproof gazebos as the heavens opened and I mean it poured for a good 10-15 minutes and ...
... One chick just lay flat out, exhausted beside it's shell for ages - it looked like I felt after childbirth! I guess exhaustion is relative.
Another display had the chicks that were a few days old and they were standing and running around under the lights and were the usual yellow balls of fluff - gorgeous.
In the lobby area of the stadium behind glass, were the winning quilts. Now quilting is not usually my cup of tea but one of them ...
... very long and moved quickly, and we were to the automated kiosk in about 15 minutes, then bypassed the luggage pickup, which saved loads of time. The customs agent only asked what we have bought overseas (just $130 worth of souvenirs) and we were on to TSA. This was short and quick, and used the full body scan. The officer there asked to pat down my back, because I guess the scan showed the sweat running down from carrying ...
