    Very bad location, the hotel is renovating without telling the guest so noise issues from 7am in the morning, no elevator available on our floor because they were fixing the carpet, breakfast very bad quality, stAff very unfriendly and were talking the whole time in mexican or watching tv, room service quality very bad the chicken seems in not good quality. Room very small muddy dark. When we recieved the bill, they used the wrong room rate and they did not gave us breakfast coupons! Very poor experience!

    The bathrooms were not clean enough. It was warm in lobby The odor in hotel was old and musty. The workout facility was poor...machines didn't work properly, TV on machines as wells on wall were poor....the bike faced a wall with a tv you couldn't hear...there are no free weights etc! Parking prices are ridiculous! The breakfast buffet was over priced and quality not that great. I generally feel like I was completely over charged for my stay. I will not return with all of this the way it is. Which is a shame as I will need to frequently stayed in Houston. Would not recommend.

    it was convenient to what i needed to do in Houston for a day.

    It was hard to get to the hotel with all the construction around it.

    Free Shuttle Bus to Galeria

    No Shuttle Bus to the Airport. For the airport is best to take the company supershuttle (24 USD for one way to the airport).

    The location was near by shopping area. Friendly staff.

    The valet parking was expensive and the self parking also was not worth paying to pricy

    The desk clerk when checking in was rude and impolite. They charged us twice for parking each day

    Food was very good and priced reasonable

    in my sarsh i put free parking but when icame to the hotel thay told me you must pay to the parking

  • Family with children

    Location, secure environment, large room, comfortable queen size beds, kitchennet area in room, beautiful accommadations,and extremely friendly staff. I did encounter one problem with no hot water in the shower. My parents were two doors down therefore my family used their bathroom. I immediately reported the plumbing problem. We were offered another room and given a credit for not receiveing full sevice in the room. The manager and staff accommdated my family quickly and graciously.

    For a family of three and my parents traveling with me there was no free complimentary breakfast available. I really think this should be included for the price of the rooms

    I had a pleasant stay at Crowne Plaza River Oaks. The staff was very helpful considering that this is my first time in the US. The room was spacious and very clean, and you cant beat such price.

    Reasonably close to the Galleria area

    I thought the breakfast was too expensive. Several of my co-workers commented on their rooms not being clean.
