Houston Marriott Medical Center Reviews
Affordable family motel Dec 13, 2009
Residence Inn / Marriott Houston Astrodome / Medical Center is located at 7710 S Main Street in the southwest part of Houston. This motel is one of about 30 in the area.
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 is from city center, the city has two highway circles around it. The inner circle is Interstate 630 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. This Residence Inn facility is located on South Main Street very near the extreme southwest corner of the Interstate 630 Loop at the Buffalo Speedway/S Main St 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 Astrodome has a long history and a tour can be arranged in the Park offices. The present location of Reliant Stadium was the location for many years of Astros Park, one of the early large amusement parks in this part of the U.S. The motel is also located fairly close to the famed Texas Medical Center complex of hospitals, VA Hospital, and Texas Children’s Hospital about 2 miles north of the motel. And 3 miles north is Houston’s renowned Museum District and Hermann Park.
This motel looks more like an apartment or condo than a motel. The rooms have a full kitchen with pots, pans, and dishes. There is a large Kroger grocery store next door. The motel does not have a fitness center or other amenities seen in a large business oriented hotel. The rooms are large and spacious. There is a little construction noise at the present time as the company is building a new hotel on the lot next door.
If your destination is any of the hospitals or clinics in the huge Texas Medical Center complex, this would be a good place to stay especially for a long term stay. The motel has a shuttle to take you back and forth to the medical center.
To reach this Residence Inn facility coming from the east on I630 the exit to take is Buffalo Speedway/ S Main St and coming from the west take the Stella Link exit. After taking either of these exits, go to the north side of I630 and travel about 4 blocks north on S Main Street. The motel has no restaurant but there are several restaurants nearby within walking distance.
