Cool Place!”

We loved our stay at Hotel Ylem! I was looking for a place in that specific area because we were going to an event at NRG. Of all the hotels, I chose Hotel Ylem because of its unique atmosphere (artists, décor, pledge to giving). We were not disappointed! The staff, the food truck, the bar, the room...everything was on point...we loved it! We wish the bar had been open on Saturday night though. We thought it was odd for it to be closed. We would've stopped in for a drink!

Hi Monica! We hope you will be back to see us! The bar is now open 7 nights a week!

First time we made reservations at the Hotel Ylem. What a surprise, it was great. Very clean, well appointed, though quirky. The desk personnel were gracious, the room was spacious, well appointed and the beds were great. I would heartily recommend this hotel.

Comfortable but housekeeping needs to pay more attention to detal”

First the good: room was tidy, bed was comfortable with a variety of pillows (soft/firm) for a good night's sleep. In room they offer a Lily coffee maker which brews a good cup of coffee. Drawback for me was limited inventory of decaf. No biggie. The counter staff were friendly and helpful. They accommodated my room selection cheerfully and quickly. Always a big plus. The negatives: eggs and bacon available in the breakfast buffet were barely lukewarm. No microwave to heat it back up again. All outside windows were dirty. The elevator walls were smeared with hand prints. What was cleaned had streaks indicating use of dirty rags. The mirrors in my room were the same. The toilet ring tended to drop. As a guy standing up, thats REALLY inconvenient. When I climbed into the shower a long black hair strand adorned the wall above the handles. Overall the positives out weighed the negatives. I'm willing to try it next time in Houston.
