The $5 million overhaul completed this April at the Crowne Plaza Houston Downtown included renovated guest rooms, an improved lobby, new restaurant and name change to The Whitehall. The new brand has big shoes to fill, as the property lists President Obama, Vice President Biden and Cher among past guests. The curved-edge glass tower stands up to the challenge, its spot in the city skyline illuminated from spotlights in its roof and lanterns in the trees surrounding the front door.

The newly opened hotel features a 24-hour fitness center and outdoor pool shaded by palm trees. Part & Parcel sets the mood for romance under the Texas stars with cocktails in the courtyard. Decorated with robin’s egg blue accents against patterned tile and rustic wood picnic tables, Edgar’s Hermano serves Tex Mex cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a traditional taqueria setting.

Among the largest accommodations in Houston, the property’s guest rooms include free Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions and eco-friendly bath products. Sotherly’s Signature Beautyrest mattresses and complimentary bedtime cookies ensure a good night’s rest for all.

Within a 30-minute walk of major attractions, the hotel is a good fit for sports fans attending games at Minute Maid Park and the Toyota Center, families visiting the Downtown Aquarium or those in town for shopping sprees at The Galleria.

We experienced first-class service from the moment we pulled up! Lovely and charmingly decorated hotel! Fantastic restaurant where we enjoyed daily breakfast at reasonable prices.

Hotel seemed fairly empty so, in spite of staff’’s efforts to be accommodating, not everything was in working order. The valet, who so wanted to drive us to our restaurant, couldn’t find the van keys and his coworker was delayed on another pickup. So we took an Uber. At 7 AM, our smoke alarm went off and we had to have security/housekeeping fix it. A bit unsettling. On the plus side, the room was spacious and comfortable. The perks of free parking and free breakfast (anything off the menu) were terrific. And, the staff genuinely seemed to want to make our stay pleasant.

It was very difficult to get the drink coupons that came with the deal. Also, they couldn’t print statements upon checkout, and it had to be emailed later.
