Rated 4 out of 5 by Natch All is great but the AC
I like this hotel: Friendly staff, nice rooms and food. Although its a construction on going in I 290 & 610, it really doesn't matter against the facilities and comfort of the hotel.
The only bad thing is the AC: it is too noisy when starting and stopping.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Madfrog Sports Club No No
Team reserved as a block but upon arrival was scattered throughout hotel. Breakfast included with reservation was worst I ever had. Eggs were soaked in water, link sausage was very greasy, biscuits were hockey pucks, no fruit available, no toast, no muffins, cereal selection was for senior citizens and ran out early, no apple juice, lemonade instead, who drinks lemonade for breakfast, in rooms coffee for three people, fourth person has to do without.

2nd stay in the last 2 months and again the staff did a great job. Good location for travel to multiple meeting locations around Houston. Check in was easy and courteous.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JackCi not bad
I enjoyed hotel over all however just one thing was not happy with.
So, I woke up in the morning and trying to take a shower, but the water seems a little different.
Bath tub, toilet and whatever I tried it was all yellow. Called front, then they sent someone but did not fix the problem.
Turns out entire hotel was having water problem!
I did not want to use that water and ended up late for my schedule unfortunately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dolly18 Great Getaway!
All facets of amenities and accommodations are excellent with 1 exception. The Club Lounge on weekends doesn't provide adequate appetizers. With the new chef, perhaps he will consider a variety of hot/cold entrees on weekends as he provides the weekday menu.

I would highly recomend this hotel for business trips. I suggest upgrading to the club level. I was very happy with the club lounge service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jason685 Decent hotel, poor wireless connection
I hate to grip about a "free" service but in today's work place being connected to the internet and being about to work regardless of your location is paramount. I found that the wireless internet service provided was very poor, unstable, and slow. I would be working and all of a sudden the connection was gone.
Pretty decent hotel overall. Very clean, staff was very polite and helpful. room was decent, nothing to brag about. Again, my only real complaint was the internet service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlie59 Staff is excellent, and hotel has everything.
Receptionist, shuttle driver, valet, concierge, wait staff (particularly, Alicia) were exceptional. Room was immaculate. Food was delicious. Everything about this hotel is superior. In addition it is an ideal location for all my visits to Houston, whether business related or simply leisure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeeGee60 Overall, very good stay
Very personable hotel and restaurant staff.
Very good restaurant for a hotel.
Only drawback is an Internet that periodically fails requiring a whole repeat login, which is frustrating.
Upgrade that accommodation, and all is good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stillagek Room was quite worn
The room, 832, was clean but worn. I travel for a living staying in hotels 2-3 nights a week...every week. The dresser had burned in stains and the TV power was unplugged. Beyond that it was fine.
I left a very expensive toothbrush in the room. I tried calling that evening (Sunday) and was told to call back Monday as housekeeping was closed. I called twice on Monday and was sent transferred to "Housekeeping"...but no one ever answered. Annoyed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jrh0910 Pretty good
Once I was able to get firmer pillows I could sleep much better. The upgrade to VIP status was not worth it though. Food on the 9th floor was not good and the hot food, though very little of it, was cold

Rated 4 out of 5 by MichaelJ1964 Construction is a problem
The construction around the property was a mess and burdensome. The gym had broken equipment which took 2 weeks to fix (our stay was 3 weeks so I nagged the staff almost every day). However, in all other respects the service and staff were great and the hotel was nice. The only issue I had which was not facility related was the morning breakfast in the Club Lounge was mediocre.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveBB94 Pleasant stay
Had to be in Houston for business in January and February 2014 with some other guys, they had obtained the rooms here, I said fine, and when I checked into my room I was pleasantly surprised. Clean comfortable and quiet pretty well sums it up. With very few exceptions, very kind and attentive staff. Enjoyed the stay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CLM1 Terrible problems with internet connection
I had terrible problems connecting to the internet all 3 nights of my stay. The problem was with the internet service provider (not the hotel), but nevertheless, I was severely inhibited from getting work done in the evenings. Whenever I could sporadically get an internet connection, the connection was ridiculously slow (e.g., 10 or more minutes to pull up Google.com).

Rated 4 out of 5 by biztravelr good stay
staff was very accommodating and friendly. low points for a sheraton in good location. only issue is i feel they should have a safe in the room to lock up valuables. did not like carrying all my important docs or valuables on me all the time.
other than that, it was great for what it was. i would stay here again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GNP1 Find other choices
I was very disappointed in my stay. As a business traveler, I'm pretty picky about my amenities, but usually very quiet when not met, but internet access is extremely important to me. This hotel was like working in 2004, the first two nights I called to see if something was wrong and was just told that it's slow and there are a lot of people there.. I had to leave to send emails to my Asian team that they needed before I would be back in the office.
The other thing that really bothers me is when checking out, I waited 10 minutes while two people talked in the office behind the desk, then when one of them came out, they seemed irritated that they had to help me. Never asked how my stay was, just asked my room and printed my receipt.
The location of this hotel is poor as well. It is right on the highway, but with the construction, etc, it's not the easiest to get too and there isn't anything within walking distance that I saw.
Not what I've come to expect from Starwood!

Rated 4 out of 5 by THD65 Great Staff
All rooms have upgraded the TV service- HD on all channels makes the stay feel more like home- The front desk staff cannot be beat- the restaurant staff in the mornings is the very best of any hotel I have ever stayed in- friendly, courteous and very attentive- I have stayed at this hotel at least 60 times and it continues to get better.

Our stay was exceptional from check in until check out. Room was clean and ready to go when we checked in. Hotel staff was personable and welcoming. We appreciate the hotel being pet friendly so that we could bring our two yorkies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MOG2013 Wedding weekend
Brandi did a great job helping to plan and to coordinate our weekend wedding event. However, the front desk staff, while efficient and helpful, had continuous problems giving our wedding party guests their designated welcome gift bags. We had made more than enough (actually four extra!!!) and found out during the event that at least five were given to guests with another wedding party and six of our guests never received a gift bag. That was a rather large expense on our part because many of our wedding guests came from other countries! Very disappointed with that aspect! Also, our after wedding brunch was from 10:30 to 1 on the Sunday following the wedding but guests were not granted a late checkout to accommodate staying until 1pm. So much food and over a gallon of champagne punch was paid for, but went to waste. Also very disappointed over that situation.

Nice hotel, very nice rooms, comfortable and clean, free wi-fi was a plus. Ate in the bar and the food was good. The only negative at this time was the road construction, which of course is not the Hotel's fault.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fsnmoye Excellent, except for a couple of things....
The bathroom's small....but it's not a major turn off. Everything I needed was there.
The entire hotel temperature felt warm...e.g. the lobby, hallways, the Jasmine room (where the staff immediately solved the problem by cooling it down.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by CA50 Comfortable room, great staff
I stayed here for a conference. The room was well appointed and clean. Bed was very comfortable and I appreciated the large desk, free in-room wifi and complimentary computer usage/printing in the business center. Front desk was always helpful and friendly. Wish there was more surrounding the hotel but the shuttle service to the Galleria is a nice extra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Connie01 This hotel was very nice
Construction on the road was the only problem we had at this hotel. The front desk agents were very friendly. Great bar/lounge to hang out. I am allergic to down, so they made sure my room was the way I requested. The executive level lounge was nice, and it had a computer to print out directions upon departing.
