“West University” (or “West U”) – a neighborhood for professors west of Rice University – is one of the top four richest areas in Houston. Because West U is a wealthy residential district, there are no hotels – or many businesses, really – actually in West U. So, “Courtyard Houston-West University” is not only inappropriately named but also annoyingly upwardly mobile. The hotel is nowhere near West U, so I don’t know what these people are talking about. Naming controversy aside, this place – off a side street parallel to the busy Southwest Freeway – has a real Starbucks in the lobby. As with a lot of Courtyards, the bed faces the window, not the television. Hopefully, the television turns so you can watch from either the bed or the couch.

This Courtyard Marriott is great! I love the fact that it is centrally located. Very close to nice restaraunts, attractions, & multiple shopping centers.
There is a Starbucks and a deli in the main lobby, as well as a big screen TV that tells you the weather, local news, & happenings within the area.
The room was more spacious than I would have expected, & there was a refrigerator included. Clean bathroom, and hallways too. The staff was very kind to me. I recommend staying here if you are looking to shop, and enjoy the city of Houston. The famous Lakewood Church is right across the freeway, too.

This place has free Wi-Fi, plus there are a lot of convenient stores nearby like Kroger (groceries) or CVS (pharmacy).

The hotel is clean and depending on when you book, you can get a good price for the room considering the location.

This hotel is nice because it's slightly outside of uptown, but everything (restaurants and shopping) are still plenty accessible. There's a pool and hot tub, and the property recently underwent a pretty large renovation, so the look is a bit more modern than other Courtyard by Marriott hotels.

Check out Barnaby's Cafe on Shepherd for yummy light food like salmon, the best grilled veggies and delicious salads. If you're a fitness buff, this hotel does have a gym, but it's also a nice area for jogging outside (provided it isn't scorching hot outside).

First to Review

I recently spent a couple of comfortable nights here. I had a work-related class in Bellaire and if you don't count the Courtyard up front, this was the closest "Room at the Inn". This was especially important as there was some huge conference in town, and Hotel rooms were very hard to come by. I initially thought it might be Rodeo-related, but I was about a week early on that event.

It was a bit of a walk and climb (including a mandatory card swipe) from the Front Desk to my Room, but once I was there I settled in nicely with free Internet, the flat screen TV within a direct line of sight, and snacks (Spanish cheese and wine, plus bread) purchased from Central Market. The bed was comfortable and considering my trouble sleeping away from home (and Gayle), I did well.

Down at the Lobby, Marriott staff were very friendly and helpful. The Breakfast and Happy Hour food offerings were also generous and tasty. I have certainly stayed in more luxurious places, but for the comfort and safety I wanted during this short business trip, my expectations were more than met.
