Hilton Garden Inn Sugar Land, TX

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Sugar Land a couple of weeks ago and I must say I really liked it. The hotel is located in Sugar Land, TX (a suburb of Houston), a city that constantly ranks as one of the best places to live in the U.S., with the energy sector jobs dominating the playing field.

The room rate was around $210 or so, which I found quite pricey but I suppose it was because it was a Wednesday stay and the hotel certainly has a predominantly business crowd. Before heading out to Houston, I had registered for Hilton Honors’ Weekend promotion and was able to earn an additional 1,000 bonus points on top of the regular hotel points and bonus points for being a Gold member. No big deal, but they were still free extra points.

Check-in:

Check-in was non-eventful, and I was promptly recognized as a Hilton Honors Gold member. I was given a breakfast voucher for the following morning, since Hilton Honors Gold status includes free breakfast and internet. Parking at the hotel is free.

Lobby:

The hotel manager told me that the hotel will be renovated soon (not sure how much construction impact guests will experience in the future). However, I don’t know that the hotel needs any renovating. The lobby is very modern and nicely decorated. It is very spacious, with a dual-sided fireplace and some couches, large windows that make it very bright, and the restaurant and bar with plenty of sitting area just next to it. There are several comfortable couches and chairs to sit at throughout the main lobby.

Room:

The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. Not much of a view since it is a business area. The workstation was spacious as well and there was a chair with a reading lamp and a small ottoman, although I found the chair itself to be uncomfortable to sit back and watch TV.

Restaurant:

In my opinion the best feature of this hotel is the restaurant and food service. The breakfast was outstanding and the spread had lots of variety. Besides the usual fruit, yogurt, cereal, milk, eggs, meats, toast and bagels, they also have a full kitchen, so they serve eggs cooked to order, a big plus for me since I love fried eggs and I can’t usually get them at a buffet. They also serve Starbucks coffee and have an espresso machine, so I had a really good double espresso after breakfast.

Overall impression:

If you’re in the Sugar Land area, I would consider this hotel for a good, comfortable and quiet stay. The rack rate was a bit pricey and I wouldn’t personally pay over $200 for it, but it is a good option if staying on points. The breakfast is really solid, and the hotel staff is very friendly and welcoming.
