    Historical Traveler Reviews The Sam Houston Hotel

    Wow

    from

    WOW what a hotel!! Stayed at the Sam houston for four nights. What a staff of people working there. I am a CFO of a fortune 500 company. Because of an overbooking problem at a "sheik" boutique hotel in Houston. My reservation was re-booked at this hotel. I will never stay anywhere else and I have instructed my companies' travel agents to always book this hotel when our sales people stay in Houston

    Sleeping in the beds are like sleeping on clouds

    from

    The atmosphere is great, but the beds are greater. You feel like you are floating on a cloud once you've climbed into the bed. Down comforters, down pillows, elegant bathroom, warm bathrobes. You couldn't ask for anything more.

    Exceptional Hotel And Staff, A Must Stay!!!

    from

    We spent a romantic evening in one of the suites and were spoiled. Room service, valet, food, and over all quality are hard to surpass. We frequent the downtown clubs and theater disctrict and will definately stay there again. Quick hint: The hotel rooms are cheaper on Friday and Saturday, just the opposite of most hotels. This is due to the hotel being usually booked during the week with business men/women and CEOS. So take advantage of the cheaper weekend rates and you won't be dissappointed. Highly recommended from a couple who travels frequently.

    Fabulous hotel

    from

    I agree whole-heartedly with all the other posts! We live in the Houston metro area and spent last Saturday night at "the Sam" as a birthday getaway. The the hotel is sleek and beautiful, the room/beds are divine, and the service is phenomenal. For example, the person delivering our room service noticed that we were having difficulty with the TV remote - she replaced ours literally within minutes. The Riviera Grill food is delicious and innovative. Although not inexpensive, the hotel is very reasonably priced considering what you get. A king-bedded room with wonderful features, several cocktails and snacks at the bar, room service (first courses), full breakfast, valet parking, tax, and gratuities came to just under $300. There is a comlimentary town car for transportation within the downtown area, but we were too pleased with where we were to leave!

    Just about perfect!

    from

    Things got off to a great start when I was upgraded to a suite without even having to ask! The Sam is ultra sleek and luxurious. You never feel uncomfortable though becuase the staff is so friendly and helpful.

    My suite was v. nice although the "color scheme" was a bit too monochromatic for my taste. I think the bed must have been the most comfortable thing on this earth! I also loved the flat screen TV's and the gorgeous glass and granite bathrooms. Complimentary Town Car service within the downtown area was greatly appreciated. The Rivera Grill was a good spot for dinner too! Just an all-around fantastic boutique property. You must stay here if you're coming to Houston!

    Excellence at the Sam Houson

    from

    The revered Sam Houston would be proud to have his name associated with this excellent establishment. The Sam Houston Hotel lives up to its advertising in all respects. My husband and I just spent the Labor Day weekend at the Sam Houston and cannot find anything to complain about. The hotel is sleek and modern, yet the staff is warm and friendly. They have a sit-down check-in desk which was very comfortable, if unexpected. The valet parking was quick and efficient. We were in our room within 10 minutes of arriving. The rooms are beautifully furnished and most importantly, they are CLEAN. A hotel's reputation is always at the mercy of its housekeeping, and the Sam Houston has twice daily maid service. We had a room on the top floor with a nice view of the downtown area. Our room rate was $139 which included an excellent cooked to order breakfast and valet parking. Hard to beat, folks. We also took advantage of the complimentary transportation within the downtown area. All provided by smiling and friendly staff. Additionally, the hotel is a breeze to get to off of I-10. This probably sounds like a commercial for the Hotel, but I really must rave. It was excellent. We will definitely be back.

    Wow - Great rooms!

    from

    Beautiful rooms with great service! I loved the granite bathroom and products provided. This is a great change from the corporate environment of the large hotel chains I normally stay in. Try this hotel and you won't be disappointed.

    Great Service

    from

    This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. Rooms are great, a little small though. Beautiful bathrooms!! Top notch staff, very helpful. I would stay there again in a second.

    Great Astros package

    from

    This newly renovated hotel had an attractive Astros package: room, Astros tickets, full breakfast, parking, and Astros goody bag (with a baseball and big foam finger) all for $190 for two. That sounds pretty good, but what made this truly exceptional was the superb quality of this hotel and its services. The concierge arranged an upgrade in our Astros tickets to the sixth row just in front of third base; such good seats were unavailable through the internet or Ticketmaster. From the warm and inviting sit-down registration to the luxurious rooms (in a sort of unusual '50s style with large flat screen TV with DVD-free movies included,free very high speed internet hook-up for your laptop, and a flashy granite and glass bathroom) to the large and delicious breakfast choices, our stay at the Sam Houston hotel was terrific. The hotel is about a three block walk to the ballpark. The only warning I would give is that this is an area of urban Houston that is in the process of renewal and there is a fleabag hotel across the street that had some unsavory types loitering outside when we walked back to the hotel at about 10 PM. The Sam Houston Hotel does offer complementary limo service around downtown and you might think about using that amenity.

    Excellent Experience in a luxurious, yet historical environment

    from

    Very professional, personable service, excellent Downtown Houston location, beautifully appointed rooms and a very trendy bar (The Sam)--what is there not to like?

Look they have no idea what a cup of coffee is here, and as my daughter Rebecca warned me well before I left for the United States, is Dad, Starbucks will be your best and only friend when it comes to coffee, and sadly she was right. Starbucks makes the ONLY real expresso coffee here for the masses, and ...

    ... when the ceremony began. It was a small and quiet ceremony hosted by an American which sounded a little odd to me. There were 4 flag polls in front on the monument and only one was used, for an American flag. I initially didn't see an Aussie flag but later found it on a small poll behind the monument. It was a dishevelled affair. The American who spoke first tended to make his opening announcement personalised and toward people he knew, making quips with a wide ...

    ... I saw that three IAH-DCA flights have been canceled today, which explains why the 31 seats that had been open on my 6:55 p.m. departure suddenly vanished as customers on the canceled flights were rebooked. Argh. Looks like we’ll be stranded overnight in Houston.
