Do we want to spend the weekend at the airport, swimming in the pool, eating at the restaurant and watching giant airplanes? Well, yes, yes we do.
We won a 2 night stay at the Marriott at George Bush Intercontinental Airport and did just this!
The lobby, restaurant and rooms are all remodeled and very clean and comfortable.
Our room was in the round part, right by the courtyard with the pool. In the courtyard, you could hear the planes pulling up to the gate.
Just steps away from the pool was our room... and here you could not hear the airplanes. I honestly only heard one plane take off during our two night stay.
Also, the wait staff was very friendly and treated us just as well as all the business travelers and non-kid groups.
Check out is 1:00pm, which I really like. I bet a lot of people check out at 4:00am for early flights, making the late check out do-able for the hotel.
The rates look quite reasonable for this remodeled hotel... but I'll let you decide for yourself. We really enjoyed the weekend by the airplanes and were able to come and go as we wanted... watching the planes the whole time. And if you or a guest has an early morning flight, the Marriott at IAH is a very very convenient place to stay!
