Editorial review:

Intercontinental Houston offers great skyline views along with a location convenient to the financial district and the Galleria. The service is impeccable, the cuisine is divine, and the restaurant is attractive. The rooms, however, are small. There's a club floor where appetizers are served in the evening. Very highly recommended.

  • Location is great - Free breakfast - Room was fantastic - Pool and whirlpool looked great
  • Room was extremely clean - Service was outstanding - Pool is very small - Nice restaurant
  • Room service was prompt - Gym very good - Internet access is free on the club floor
  • 2 blocks from the galleria - Room was a good size - Bed comfy - Lobby was huge
  • Pool/jacuzzi - Don't bother with valet parking - Self-park is easy with a back entrance

      it was good experience and hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The location was good as it was very close to the west loop and hence easy to connect to other locations . I had an executive room, car park , breakfast and club lounge and Internet were free of charge. Hotel management would need to work on improving the food at the club launge. Thanks
