A Good Choice in Houston A review of Hyatt Regency Houston
Of the three Hyatts I have patronized recently (Indianapolis, Washington, DC & Houston), I found this one to be the most attractive.
Security was a little better here than at the others: a room card was necessary to activate the elevator. And the elevators were near the front desk--unlike in Indy where the elevators were extremely close to the street, allowing anyone to easily access the room floors without being noticed by hotel personnel. The king bed was very comfortable even though a bit soft for my taste. The small lobby bar was convenient but had no draft beer at all and charged $5.25 for a bottle of Heineken.
The wait staff at the restaurant were friendly and attentive; the food acceptable and fairly priced. The location is downtown Houston is good and about three blocks from the Light Rail to the Museum District. I had not been to Houston for many years and was pleasantly surprised at how clean and attractive downtown seemed. Across the street is Luther's Bar BQ with good food at very reasonable prices. Recommended attraction: the National Buffalo Soldier Museum-a few blocks from the Museum District. If you are lucky, you may get a personal tour from Mr. Joseph, a true World War II hero.
