Rated 5 out of 5 by MsSLK I Never Knew...
I never knew that the Sheraton was such an amazing hotel. I knew of it...had seen it...passed it. I assumed it was a decent hotel. However, I had always elected to stay at more familiar and better publicized hotel chains. This was a big mistake. The service I received at the Sheraton far surpasses any service I have received at any other hotel chain in the U.S.
Also, I was made to feel like a guest, not a credit card holder. There were no hidden fees or charges. Everything in the business center was complimentary, unlike another hotel in the area that is a part of the Starwood line. The staff was genuinely accommodating and always went the extra mild.
On my return flight home, I was already giving the Sheraton rave reviews and recommending it to a couple I encountered at the airport that had missed a connecting flight and was trying to decide on a hotel for the night

I travel strictly on a debit card. At check-in for a 5 night stay, staff wanted an additional $50 per day to cover incidentals. When I pushed back, they first said they had no control over what was pre-authorized on my card - that the bank determined the amount - patently absurd. Then they said they could authorize only the room charges (suddenly they could control it) if I left a $100 cash deposit. They were either lying or stupid.
Besides that, the room decor was tired and the ceiling in the shower had significant mold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deb117 OK once the stressful check-in was done!
This facility is clean and comfortable. However, the check-in process was stressful. We had flight delays so I called to let the hotel staff know we would be getting in very late and to ensure that they did not give our room away. We had reserved a King suite with a pull-out sofa bed (there were 3 adults sharing this room). Upon arrival we were informed that there were no rooms matching our reservation available and that we would have to be put into a room with two double beds for one night, and then possibly change to our desired room. Eventually, afer a long wait at the check in counter while a housekeeper went to ensure that the room with a King Bed and sofa had a pull-out sofa, things worked out...but it was stressful and it took a long time after being already tired from problematic flights. The convenience of a suite is good for people traveling with a teenager...a separate bed for them (the pull out sofa), and a fridge are definite pluses. And, this hotel is very convenient to Galleria and downtown. I do wish that there was a microwave in the room though!

Turned on the water in the bathroom everything shook. The pipes to the shower, the knob turning on the water - not connected to the wall. you could touch the faucet and everything up to the shower would move. The toilet flooded the bathroom - took them 1.5 hr to come up and that was only after we went down and told them again. Bathtub was rusted from constant dripping of water. Trash left in the room on the floor from previous stay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Karen101 Not spectacular for price!
I stayed at this Sheraton for one night on a business trip. Receptionist was friendly and rooms were clean, but this was not a spectacular hotel for the price I paid! There was no cold water in the bathroom sink and shower! When I turned the knob to Cold, the water was hot and when it was on the Hot side, it was scalding! Room service was a bit on the slow side (it was after 8pm). Room needs a facelift.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DeeK Bad experience
Check in was great. The room wasn't as clean as it should have been. Carpet was stained. From the 2nd floor to the 9th the ice machines where broken. On my second day there the hotel held a event that some group booked one of the ball rooms. That night I went to dinner and when I returned there wasn't any parking for several of the guest staying at the hotel. I spoke tomthe gentleman at the desk and his response to us was the group at the event paid good money for the room and there was nothing he could do for us. We had to leave the cars out front and come down and see if spaces where available. I do believe I paid for the hotel and parking and drove several hours the day before and parking my car near the hotel and paying for it should have been just as important as the group function. Of course we couldn't get in touch with the manager. I wouldn't stay there again
