Because the three couples on our Liberty of the Seas sailing were all arriving in Houston separately, I decided it was best to spend our cruise night there instead of Galveston in case of any flight delays. We ended up booking three king bed rooms at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Houston Hobby Airport property.
What this nice internet photo doesn’t show you is the sketchiness of the surrounding area of the hotel. I wouldn’t recommend walking anywhere from there in the dark!
Our three rooms were adjoining on the fourth floor. There’s one elevator which resulted in short waits and it’s pretty tiny which made it hard for us to go down together with our large bags.
The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. Steve and I enjoyed the in room coffee.
The shower had a nice rain shower head. The towels were large and thick. What we didn’t like is that the bathroom light switch automatically turns on the fan which is pretty loud. Wish they had separate controls.
One of the reasons I selected this hotel was the free shuttle and it was prompt and the driver was very helpful. In fact all the staff we interacted with was great from the front desk to the breakfast room hostess.
I have gold elite status with Marriott and enjoyed the free premium internet which worked great for downloading some Netflix and amazon. Prime. Shows to watch on the ship. There was no other perk; I often get free bottles of water but not here.
The breakfast was very good for a free breakfast room meal.
The biscuits were soft and fluffy and the sausage gravy actually had sausage in it. 🙂
Steve started with the waffle which was the first time I’d seen a four piece waffle maker at a hotel. He let me have one while he went back for eggs and sausage. There were also hard boiled eggs, bacon, yogurt, bagels, toast, muffins, cereals, juice and oatmeal.
All of our group enjoyed the breakfast and service.
Staying in Galveston would be my first choice pre-cruise, but if you need to stay in Houston this is a great one night option.
