... on that sort of a scale before.
One unfortunate aspect to this is the matter of the portable restrooms - they were worse than the most filthy public toilet I've ever entered - I didn't know where to walk, stand or sit! Say no more.
Well, that was really all we did that night but we hope to head back to the rodeo on Monday, 10 March with Mase's parents God willing and see the livestock and actual rodeo section which should be quite something.
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 ...
... walkie-talkies and earphones, survey, and tip envelope to David. Next, I settled the bill, turned in our room key cards, loaded our luggage on a baggage cart and headed to the bus. The hotel concierge loaded all the bags for us…it was much appreciated because it was very cold outside. As we departed the hotel parking lot, David reminded everyone to check and make sure we had all of our valuables and passports. He instructed us to take them out ...
I arrived at the pleasantly surprising hostel last night after a mammoth flight. Met my roommates who all come from Poole! Had an interesting discussion about Mr Huhne and then I pretty much crashed out. Woke up early this morning and walked to downtown at 7:30ish - downtown is very empty and full of office blocks. Struggled to find somewhere good for breakfast and not seen any Tex ...
... talking to my seatmate, an older American, about my trip and he seemed to be seriously considering moving to Panama and buying a boat. My layover in Houston was only about an hour and a half and I had to go from one wing of the airport, retrieve my bag, go through customs, check my bag and make it to the other wing before my flight took off. Needless to say I was busy and did not see much of the ...

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.
