U.S. News Review

The Westin Houston Downtown (formerly the Inn at the Ballpark) combines traditional charm with modern amenities in its location right across the street from baseball's Minute Maid Park. But if baseball is not your thing, you might want to avoid this hotel, since America's Favorite Pastime is a theme that pervades the property. Still, most guests say that you'll find the hotel very comfortable and friendly. Guest rooms feature plush furnishings and warm, earthy tones, as well as flat-screen TVs, high-speed Internet access (for a fee) and signature bath products. If you don't fill up on peanuts and Cracker Jacks, sit down to dinner at Vic & Anthony's, which earns high praise for its steaks. Previous visitors also recommend this hotel for its staff, noting that everyone they encountered was especially friendly.
