Regular visitor to Houston A review of DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Houston by the Galleria
I am a regular visitor to Houston, travelling there every 6-8 weeks from London. I lived in Houston for 16 years prior to moving to London so I am very familiar with the city.
After "testing" many hotels in Houston I now stay at the Doubletree Suites every time I visit. The rooms are HUGE (with a large living room/breakfast area, a small kitchen, and a large bedroom w/two large beds). I have adequate space during business trips to hold an impromptu meeting/work session with 3 or 4 people and when travelling with my family (3 young kids plus wife) there is more than adequate space for the entire gang in a one bedroom suite. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful, the rooms (and hotel) are nicely appointed and clean, and the outdoor pool is great. The hotel is large but since the rooms are so large it does not feel crowded even when fully booked. In addition the hotel is in a great location, easy walking distance of the Galleria (huge shopping center) and a number of restuarants.
The only negative about the hotel is the furniture is a bit dated but overall I rate this as one of my favorite hotels anywhere (and I travel a great deal).
