The $5 million overhaul completed in spring of 2016 at the Crowne Plaza Houston Downtown included renovated guest rooms, an improved lobby, a new restaurant and a 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, Keurig coffeemakers 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. A free downtown shuttle is also available.

After much thought on the matter I decided not to rate visit because wonderful and competent staff struggled to recover/coverup problems. I suggest you remove this property from your list of deals. It is evident that property was once magnificent, but no more. She has not aged gracefully and have mechanical problems. No fault of staff. Property requires updating if she desires to remain relevant and upscale.

The staff was very attentive. They did surprise us with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary. That was very nice. Shuttle driver was very nice and accommodating.

We had reserved an Executive King with bath/shower combo, free breakfast (up to $20 value each person). When we arrived there were no rooms available for what we had reserved. Ended up in a double full bed with bath/shower combo. Breakfast voucher was for up to $15/person. It just seemed like everything we had purchased in the Travelzoo was different from what we received.

The free drinks and breakfast. The restaurant was good.
Other Comments
We live near downtown Houston and just wanted to stay at a nearby hotel to lounge at the pool all day. The Whitehall has some sort of chemical imbalance that turned the pool green, making it very undesirable to get in.
