I chose the HI for convenience and I will return because of the friendliness of the staff. It was a Saturday night after a long day putting on the Rodeo wine competition and as exotic as that sounds all I wanted was a comfortable bed and a good night's sleep to be refreshed for a 6 am wake up call....

Appeared to have undergone a recent make over. Great location within walking distance of NRG Stadium. After the game we visited the bar; service was good with a generous pour for drinks. Rooms were clean and what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn. We'd stay here again.
