... Screens and Flow Control Device Product Line Manager - briefed me on SLBs sand control division. Sand screens, ICDs - got to see what nozzles look like, including the ResCheck nozzles that have dissolvable balls (w cages) that seal the opening in the nozzles whilst running in hole, then are dissolved by acid when production is required. Also, a developing technology that includes a SSD to open and close the ICD. Then I got a bit of tour by Mark of the sand ...

Low and behold, we had to take a bus!!!!
The sound of this was terrifying, "36 hours on a bus from Houston to Los Angeles. But you know what? It was actually as bad as it sounds, and it made Amtrak not so bad, however, we split it up and discovered one of my favorite new places that I had never been to, Las Cruses, New Mexico. Very friendly people, ...
Today is dedicated to exploring Sorrento. It's an ancient city, huge cliffs, gigantic walls, and filled with quaint little shops. St. Francis is the patron saint and next to our hotel is a chapel dedicated to him. while we were looking around we witnessed two weddings taking place there. We also did a little shopping, sat by the pool and had another delicious dinner at a restaurant that's been in business since 1930. During this trip, Herb has been interviewing people we meet ...
... It has been a weird week starting with last Saturday, when I woke up very sick, with no voice, short of breath and fever - and ended at the Urgent Care Clinic down the street. So - instead of celebrating my eldest grand son's 4th birthday (Michael) on that day (which we had planned around as I did not want to miss it - thus scheduling the trip for this week) instead I was laid up ...
... leave came on May 31st and still no word of the visa. I spend that weekend very confused and wondering when it would come. The airlines had to confirm a flight for me and made another flight for me on the Wednesday the 5th. At this point I wanted to leave the 31st, but then I was starting to wonder if my visa was even going to come on my actual flight date on that Wednesday. That Friday the 31st I called and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Omni Houston Hotel Westside
The Omni Houston is such a great hotel in many ways, but in others they really drop off. Great lobby, great restaurants (though pricey) amazing service in the restaurants and the valet folk are excellent too - very attentive. In fact to give them extra credit - they were awesome!
Very pretty hotel with nice service
I stayed at the Omni while in Houston for a conference. The hotel was very nice with great service. My conference was not at the hotel, so I spent relatively little time there. However, after a long day, it was nice to come back to a relaxing atmosphere. One evening, another person and I decided to return to the hotel for drinks. We went to the restaurant, and they told us we could sit in one of the many lovely seating areas in the hotel and a server would come to us. That was very nice. The simple touches were elegant and much appreciated. The only draw back I can think of was the terrible road construction outside to hotel which made access difficult. Of course, this is no fault of the Omni, but a nuisance nonetheless.
I stayed at the Omni Westside in Houston for 4 nights in January 2006. This was a business trip and the hotel was chosen because its location is near to the major oil company offices in Houston. It's alongside Interstate I-10 which is a very busy freeway which is also having allot of construction work by the hotel and which is impacting the various other roads nearby.
This is a wonderful hotel just recently renovated. This is my second time to stay here in as many months.
I had previously read some bad reviews about this place so I was a little bit leary. However, once I got there and saw the hotel, my fears were put aside. This place is awesome. The service was excellent, the room was clean and simply beautiful. The bathroom was stocked, the towels fresh, the bed comfortable. I paid 100 including tax for one night and it was a steal. The inside of the hotel is awesome, with a beautiful fish pond. We ate breakfast at the cafe and it was great. The place was simply great. I will go back again.
We stayed at the Houston Omni Westside for one night in October 2005. I have previously stayed at the Houston Omni (near the Galleria) and thought it was a very nice hotel. We placed a reservation online for this Omni for $89/night. The hotel staff was courteous although they only mentioned upon our checking in that we may hear some construction noise between the hours of 9 AM and 6 PM. The lobby was spacious but filled with a wedding party when we arrived. The koi pond had oil or some type of chemical floating on the top of it. (Made me feel sorry for the fish!) The fifth floor looked like it had already been renovated because the carpet looked new and the furniture was of modern styling. However, there were crumbs and cereal bits on the floor. The bathroom was tiny but well appointed.
Let's start with the lobby that is lush with plants and vases of orchids...water flows all around, inside and out, filled with huge koi and turtles...the kids loved feeding them and being able to be close to water...
Wish I could live here
I stayed at the Omni Westside in February 2005 and was very impressed by the service. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful, and the hotel itself was very nice. Room service was very fast, and the courtesy van was convenient and ready to go (at least to the BP campus) with just a few minute's notice. Altogether an excellent hotel experience.
The Omni Houston Westside is a lovely hotel. I stayed for three nights (in May, 2004 - over Memorial Day) while visting an old friend who lived near by in Katy, TX. The staff was very helpfull and gracious, the lobby was spacious and inviting, room service and wake up calls were always on time. The ONLY problem was mositure. My room, and the entire hotel for that matter, seemed damp. However, that could have been due to the weather outside(extremly humid). Overall, it is a lovely hotel and I plan to stay there again.
Very nice room on I-10 on west side of town. Given that the hotel was rated 3 stars I was not expecting a place as nice as this. One nice freebie was wireless internet access included in the price.
Everything was what you would expect in a fine hotel. I would definitely recommend it.
