    Beautiful hotel and service!

    We had our room block at The Sam Houston hotel, and couldn't have been happier with the services. That provided us with a beautiful suite, accommodated a luncheon the next day for our guests in the Pearl Restaurant, and made the process of room blocking very easy for us. Definitely recommend!

    Outstanding service and location, not to mention visually stunning. So why would you want to look elsewhere?

    We had the pleasure of working with Christopher (event manager) and his kindness and eye for details are impeccable. Christopher is just wonderful to work with and each meeting we left excited and couldn't wait until we could return back. You will have a such a great time coordinating things with him!

    In addition to Christopher other staff such as Chef Ed were also a pleasure to work with, he was so amazing and from our first meeting it was nothing but laughs and good food and on our wedding day it was exactly the same, HOT plates and perfectly cooked food. Another staff member to mention to you all is Janice. Should you make the correct decision and book your event here Janice is responsible for bar tending services. She made our specialty cocktail experience so much fun! The event staff as well as the hotel staff will make sure your experience as well as each guests experience is nothing but exceptional. In the end our guest as well as ourselves were treated to a wonderful event thanks to each of these wonderful people!
