Hyatt Place Houston Bush Airport: Waiting on SQ Flight

7

The Hyatt Place Houston Bush Airport Hotel Review is part of The Quest Around The Globe Trip Report which covers the following places:

Here is the Picture Preview, the Excel Spreadsheet of all the points redemptions, and my CNN International Business Traveller segment which was filmed in Vegas.


The sooner I finish this review the sooner I can write about something interesting. I include reviews like this for the sake of completion.


Getting There: There is a free shuttle from the airport to the Hyatt Place Houston. It takes twenty minutes to get to the hotel.

The Staff 

I had my new phones sent to the hotel after my Medellin experience and was glad that the staff accepted the UPS packages.

The Hotel 

It’s a Hyatt Place. I’ve stayed at enough of them at this point to know what I’m getting myself into.

The Room 

Prepping for a long journey, I spent all day in the room doing nothing. The room is spacious, the bed is comfortable, but the soaps, cleverly named 1-2-3, are nothing special.

The Incident 

My flight was in the evening the next day. As a Diamond member, I asked for 4PM checkout. Per usual, housekeeping came and knocked on the door even though I had put the Do Not Disturb sign up. When they came the third time, I rushed to the door in anger and opened it to see the housekeeping lady and a huge gentlemen standing in front of her. He asked if “we had a problem” to which I said, “We do not. I have 4PM checkout, call the front desk and confirm.” I then closed the door.

I assume my 4PM checkout was not notated. Still, nobody from the front desk called me to ask if I was extending my stay before sending up a bouncer to my room.

Overall

I would recommend the Hyatt Place Houston Bush Airport as a cheap cash and points option. Just make sure you put up a neon sign that says Do Not Disturb. 4PM Checkout.

  1. Although the hotel does not appear to be in a bad area when actually on property, the Greenspoint area surrounding it is notoriously unsafe. The office towers in that location encourage workers to leave work 7 pm due to security concerns.

    Overall its not a bad Hyatt Place especially for one or two mattress runs depending on the rate.

  2. Hyatt Places are pretty much cookie cutter hotels. On a wildly unrelated note, any pointers on getting 2 seats in 1st or suites on SQ? I just signed up and I’m getting Carpal Tunnel from checking day by day, generally with no availability. I’m considering signing up for Expertflyer.
