Bringing up a toddler is not necessarily a walk around the block particularly if the youngster is unpredictable. Possibly that's the reason the proliferation of children training materials has struck the ground sprinting in these recent times. In this particular light, three day toilet training systems are in high demand, merely because they complement a child's development in a manner that not anything else can. However, mothers ...
Went to visit Hamlet's castle, spitting distance from Sweden, drove down the coast back to Copenhagen (got a brief glimpse on the way of Karen Blixen's home and the Louisiana art museum - stuff for next time), and got back in time to take Liv and Hugo back to Tivoli for one last blow ...
... for other parts of the world, it also made us realize how much we love and value our home in Houston. We're really excited to be back in Houston (less excited to go back to work on Monday) and we're already thinking about next year's international trip. Not sure exactly where we'll go or what we'll do, but we promise to go somewhere new to experience new things and enjoy more quality time ...
... on my right, and am not really sure what it's for, but where I was heading was to the left of the road I'm on. And there she is, USS Texas. The last dreadnought class battleship from the battleship arms race pre WWI. She was freshly painted, well, at least in recent years. I climb aboard and take my time to look around. She served both in WWI and WWII so there was a lot of upgrades. There was plenty of echoes of it's pre WWI days. And what I did find interesting was ...
... and set my fantasy sports teams roster. Oh…I forgot the eating and drinking part. I did that too; Rosalind, not so much! About 30 minutes before we were supposed to be at our departure gate, I exchanged $100.00 into Chinese Yuan, just to have some local currency in our pockets upon arrival. Terrible rates, the better exchange rates would be in China. At 2250, we headed to the gate for a 0005 Wednesday morning.

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.
