Crowne Plaza Hotel Houston- Medical Center Reviews
Luxury Hotel by Reliant Park Dec 11, 2009
The Crown Plaza Houston Reliant Park is located in the southwest area of central Houston directly across from Reliant Stadium and Reliant Park. Houston is easy to get around in considering it is billed as the fourth largest city in the U.S. Houston is mostly flat terrain and the only large group of high rise buildings is in the central downtown area. A somewhat simplified geographic sketch of Houston has two highway circles around city center. The inner circle is the Interstate 630 Loop and the outer circle is Beltway 8. These two circles are bisected by U.S. Highway 59 from northeast to southwest and by Interstate 45 from north central to southeast Houston, the highway to Galveston and the gulf coast. The Crown Plaza is located very near the extreme southwest corner of the Interstate 630 Loop at the Kirby exit. This area has a number of hotels due to the long time location of the Houston Astrodome. The Astrodome was one of the first sports and convention domes in the US and is still located directly east of Reliant Stadium. The Astrodome is currently not in use but there are plans to turn it into a movie studio. The hotel is also located close to the famed Texas Medical Center complex of hospitals, just a couple of miles north of the hotel. And 3 miles north is Houston’s renowned Museum District and Hermann Park. There are too many world class museums to list in this review but you can check it out on Google. Also there are many locations with super shopping within a short distance.
The Crown Plaza Reliant Park finished a multi-million dollar renovation of the guest rooms and meeting rooms in April of 2009 along with the public space. The hotel has 85,000 square feet of meeting space and is a popular convention center.
The guest room renovation included many upgrades from normal hotel fixtures including special mattresses and bathroom fixtures. The hotel also has complimentary wireless Internet, a 24 hour business center, breakfast buffet, and spa and exercise facilities. There are several restaurants in the hotel and what else in Texas but the Cattleman’s Club Bar & Grill. If none of these restaurants please you, there is always Shoneys Buffet next door.
