Convenient, Efficient meeting venue, An Eventective User from Washington, DC

I attended a business meeting at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Houston last November. My company was flying in approximately 40 business managers from all over the US, and we needed a central location with direct flights from as many of our cities as possible. The Residence Inn by Marriott was one of many hotels that we looked at. We appreciated that Marriott makes it so easy for business travelers. We were able to book rooms in advance at a discounted rate. Our central office was also able to set up a central account for billing, so the rooms were charged to one corporate account despite the fact that all of us called at separate times to make our reservations, and were flying in and out on slightly different days. The hotel tried to get as many of us on the same floors as possible, which was appreciated though not necessary. The meeting facilities were convenient, if nondescript. We could have been in a corporate hotel anywhere in the world. My colleagues and I especially appreciated the free wi-fi. Most hotels charge $30 or so on top of the already expensive hotel fees, and it feels like you're being gouged. The free wi-fi meant that everyone was online, and made it much easier to share work both during the meetings and after. I used it to FaceTime home with my kids, which was a nice change. The hotel food was fine; again, the kind of food you find in a corporate hotel anywhere in the world. They were good about accommodating dietary needs; we had a few vegetarians and one low-salt person, and corporate catering carefully labeled the special meals for our in-house lunches. The front-desk staff were helpful and directed us to nearby restaurants that could handle our crowd and were likely to be appealing to everyone. Overall, I would highly recommend it for a business meeting. It was easy, efficient and let us get to the real work at hand.
