... 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 ...
... hang. Old Mesilla is actually my new fave place. Our cab driver told us to go, or we would not have made this incredible discovery. The restaurant we ate dinner at was amazing looking, and I took many pictures, but the food only so-so.
Can't wait for our next segment to this journey, and to be able to share more pics. You will notice I stay out of most of the pictures.
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 ...
... we LOVE some barbecue! Peter said he would meet up with us as well. We picked up David and Ms. Ramsey then headed on down the highway.
Rudy's looked like a large gas station or truck stop, but inside the aroma was kickin'! Meat! Meat! Glorious MEAT!!!! David advised to get the moist brisket and burnt ends. Peter ended up ordering a little of everything on the menu, which was really fun! At Rudy's, you eat off butcher paper, which is ...
... and I was beyond excited. I thought that was the end of it, and I was just awaiting everything in the mail. Well, then I called and they said well it needs to get approved in Houston and then approved in Spain and that could take weeks. Weeks that I did not have if I was planning on leaving as planned. So daily, I called the embassy, with the same response “Please stop calling, whenever it is ready we will call you.” Days past and my date I ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston
I recently spent a couple nights at this hotel for a wedding. The hotel is beautiful and the staff & concierge very helpful. The rooms are great, modern/classic decor and have the most comfortable beds!! The hotel has one of the nicest gyms I've ever seen, located off the outdoor pool and hot tub. Hotel is located right off the highway and within walking to tons of great shopping and restaurants. Would stay there anytime!
Very good hotel!
This is a really comfortable hotel in a good location. The room was lovely and room service quick and efficient (I arrived very late and desperately needed food!). I would recommend this hotel and I will stay there again.
Great hotel great price
I had the opportunity to stay at this hotel while on a business trip, and this one ranks as one of my favorites. The staff was very helpful providing excellent room service, and anything I needed. The downstairs restaruant is excellently maintained - the same can be said for the conference/ball rooms, the business office, and bar. Great location - walking distance to the galleria, and excellent driving distance to downtown. I would definitely stay here again!
Stayed Oct 21 thru Oct 24. Staff extremely professional, helpful, and courteous. Rooms large, clean, well stocked. Loved the Aveda amenities in the room. Hospitality lounge nice. Bed and bedding comfortable. Will definitely stay there again.
The Intercontinental Houston is top notch in every way. I found the most incredible deal right on the hotel's own website. Friday and Saturday nights through the end of this year INCLUDING NEW YEAR'S EVE!, you can book this hotel for $54.50 for one person if you have an Entertainment Card. Just select Entertainment Card from the rate drop down menu. For two people, it's $74.50. The rate increases by $10 on 1/1/05. I've already booked it for New Year's Eve. I run BiddingForTravel.com which helps people bid on Priceline.com and even Priceline.com cannot beat this deal.
Exceptionally nice hotel with a friendly staff. In addition amenities mentioned in previous reviews, I'll add that my standard room had a VCR, 3 phones (one in the bathroom) and the TV had a VGA connection on the front for connecting a laptop. Greatest showerhead ever with powerful water flow. Highly recommended!
Stayed at the InterContinental Oct 8 - 19, 2004. We hosted an awards banquet with over 250 guests and even though there was a larger event going on with 700 guests, the staff made us feel very pampered and saw to our every need.
Loved the Intercontinental Houston
My husband and I stayed for 2 nights over Christmas and on new years eve. We stayed on the club level and received complimentary evening back massages as well as fantastic wine and good hors d'oevres. For new years we received a bottle of champagne and chocolate strawberries.This hotel is magnificent and the service is beyond excellent. The hotel and restaurant are so friendly and helpful.The gym is very new and has great equipment and individual tv's! Even though we live 45 min away we will be back for short and very relaxing stays. Location is great and comp. shuttle service is provided to Galleria area. Great place.
Great hotel. Great location.
We were assigned to this hotel when we asked Priceline for a 4 or 5 star hotel in Houston and we couldn't have been more pleased. Beautiful hotel. Large luxurious room. Big bathroom with all ammenities. Staff could not have been more courteous or more helpful. Concierge knew everything and when we got lost, we just called him on our cell phone and he talked us to our destination. Location is 2 blocks from Galeria, near many good restaurants and Cafe Annie (which was a major disappointment). Parking was a little pricy but I guess that's par for a 4.5 Star hotel in a big city. We'd give it 5 Stars and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Great place to stay!
This hotel is 5 star!!!!!
We stayed there on New Year's eve. The rooms/bathrooms are very well decorated. The king size bed had 8 pillows. The shower curtain in the bathroom was bowed so that the curtain doesn't touch you like most hotels. They even had bathrobes for us to use as well as a full size Vidal Sasson hair dryer. We had a great view of the Galleria. I can't wait to stay there again. Only problem is that my husband is 6'7" and the celings in the parking garage were kinda low by the elevator as well as in the bathroom when he was trying to dry his hair.
Besides that I LOVED the hotel!!!
