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.
