Houston Marriott South at Hobby Airport Hotel Review: One mile from Hobby Airport and just south of downtown, this ten-story hotel is right off major freeway I-45 (in Houston, the Gulf Freeway) and from there a few short miles by freeway to several tourist and entertainment destinations, including Reliant Stadium, the Kemah Boardwalk and NASA’s Johnson Space Center. Resisting generic chain styling, the hotel is built around an atrium lobby with lush vegetation and a waterfall. The 287 guest rooms are relatively basic, although tastefully decorated, and furnished with small work areas and comfortable stuffed chairs, the better to enjoy your city view. Additional business bonuses include voicemail, data ports and two telephones with speakerphone. Entertainment options include World Cinema movies in-room on 32-inch plasma TVs, Starbucks coffee or cocktails at Bluez Café and four ten-foot screens at Damon's Sports Bar. Additional facilities and services include 21,500 square feet of meeting space and complimentary 24-hour shuttle to Hobby Airport.
