Larry, the manager, was superior. He went over and above what I would expect. We saw him doing any job that needed to be done. He even came to each room individually to get our tv connections back up and running. The hotel was very clean and the housekeeping girl for our room was fantastic!!!

Pros -valet is very accommodating and quick -front desk is professional -hotel housekeeping is reliable and efficient -Spa and their staff are incredible - the massages and facials were excellent -every restaurant is spot on with great food and great service -close to delicious off site restaurants on Seawall BLVD Cons -pool staff is lax, the adult-only spaces are filled with kids and the pool staff walked thru the pavilions and said nothing and made the adults miserable with the kids running around -pool bar had one person behind the bar to serve customers, which slowed down service -great hotel, suite interior could use a facelift -bathrooms are small, no soaker tubs, -Note: you have to request your room be cleaned at no extra cost and they will clean it at the time you request -Do not rent a cabana, the large ones are $700 and the small ones are $600 with no amenities, no ice water, no fruit baskets, no cold towels, nothing other than a room with an ice box

Minimalist style, lunar-inspired color palettes, plush textures and plenty of natural light come together to create an ambiance that relaxes and soothes following a day of travel, meetings or exploring Houston.

Hidden gem

Reviewed By Mfree71

I realize being in the Medical Center, Blossom is probably well known. But as a Houston native staying here the first time due to a housing emergency, I never knew it existed. I had to find a nice place to stay that was pet friendly. I didn’t know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised and the friendly Texas welcome I received. My room was very well appointed with a huge flat screen TV and the Astros game on. The front desk check in was easy and I was informed I’d get a free glass of sparkling wine upon check in! My little pooch seems very happy and content too. I will definitely recommend this place for out of town guests or anyone who needs to be close to the Texas Medical Center.

CONCHOLOGISTS OF AMERICA CONVENTION

Reviewed By C5387KJlindap

What a wonderful experience! All facets of the convention were wonderful, from food to the room accommodations to the meeting rooms. Staff was so helpful; from the hotel porters, the docents at the attractions, to the wait staff at The Cafe, where the ongoing joke about Sophia Loren was so much fun! This is a wonderful place for a convention or a family vacation. Thank you to everyone for making it so pleasant!

Reviewed By princedemondedwards

Because I am a Amex Platinum member - my room was upgraded in addition to my access to some of the extra benefits. My room was nothing special, outside of the high floor - the view wasn't the best. But I chose that without knowledge of what I would be seeing. Personally, I am not a call down and complain or visit the desk when social distancing is available. They had on the Hilton app a messaging system that was absolutely amazing. The response was absolutely quick and regardless of how mundane or weird my question was - they were answered quickly. Being from the Chicagoland area - you become accustomed to certain things and how they are just available. There is no shop in the Hilton open late, so for me working a convention. I couldn't get simple things that I would have loved. I.e. Chocolate milk to go with my cookies or just a bag of chips. The highlight was going up the the Executive Lounge and grabbing my breakfast before the day started. Overall it was good food, outside of the nasty link sausage - which they should truly get rid of. They were horrible. They did a check to see how my stay was going and I told them they were currently at a 7.5 and why: they had oatmeal daily and the sausage links. I like bacon. Before the end of the day - they had spoke with the Food and Beverage director and he gave the directive to prepare some grits and ensure that there was bacon available for the remainder of my stay. When I arrived on the floor, the host jumped up to alert the folks that needed to know. I got my bacon and a fresh batch of grits. There was a snafu with housekeeping and picking up the dishes - but again, after mentioning it in the Hilton chat - they were quickly resolved, which is exactly what you would hope for. I enjoyed my 10 days / 9 nights in the Hilton. Thanks to Shavella, Mackenzie, Claudia, Betty, Monica and the other outstanding staff at the Hilton.
