Default Coming to Houston - need hotel opinion

Im most likely headed to houston for the MNF game against Tenn. I came 2 years ago and stayed at the Marriott Springhill Suites which was very nice. However the price has gone up significantly. I am now looking at the Holiday Inn Houston South Loop hotel. It is the holiday inn right next to Reliant Stadium.

Anyone have an experience or relative staying there? I have seen some mixed reviews. Some saying it was good, others saying it smelled and was dirty. I think I would be getting the executive room (to hopefully avoid any problems) but was wondering what ppl in the area know about this hotel.

I recently had a very bad experience at a Super8 so im a little worried. LOL

I have had several fans stay there and they enjoyed the stay or Sleep. Most time was not in the hotel although we did attend a browns backer meeting there

I always priceline my stays. Usually get the Hotel Derek at $109 and the Intercontinental or Hilton at $89. These are in the Galleria area.

What about hitting Pricline or such for a downtown stay?

You could take the rail to the game and back.

I'm at Quality Inn right next to Reliant for the SF game. It's a crap shoot, but the pics looked acceptable. I got it a while back and I believe it was $70 per night.

I stayed there to for that Sunday Night game against the Packers a few years ago. It was fine, no problems, decent for the price. I would stay there again. In fact I probably will for the MNF game this year.

I also stayed right down Kirby of the feeder road of 610, right around the corner from the Platinum lot. Can't remember the name of the place but it was okay, I prefer the Holiday Inn over that one though.

If that's the one right there on Kirby within walking distance, I will probably be there also.

its not much more but it is farther away. I figure i'll try and save as much money as possible and wont have to worry about getting on the metro rail. I dont think i'll be spending alot of time in the room anyways.

I'll be at Quality Inn Reliant for the 49'er game. Any insight about this location is appreciated. I love it, the board is crackling with specifics about the games at hand. We're getting closer.

Cool Re: Coming to Houston - need hotel opinion

Both your hotels are walking distance easy to Reliant. Both your hotels are in the ghetto - so don't go out walking alone at night not on game night. Take a cab to go to another area if you want to go out.

As for tailgating, Blue Crew tailgates right at Kirby and West Ridge, is comprised of a lot of the posters on here, and always welcomes out of towners.

How in the hell could you come all the way from New York and NOT tailgate? Game day is more than just a game...it's an EXPERIENCE.

Seriously...there are plenty of great tailgate parties you can go to. Don't short change your experience.

Yeah, make sure you tailgate for sure! You won't regret it. I will probably be in the Yellow this game not sure yet. I am definetly going to hit Platinum this season I just don't think it will be for this game. We should swap PM's when it get closer, and if we don't hook up at a tailgate we can get a beer before heading over.

You could make a deal . You'd be the host for the Bill's game in return for staying at someone's in Houston .
