  • Not recommending for several reasons

    by yahootraveler64 on 2018-01-17 04:43 am

    First the plus side--good steak and fish in the dining room. Room was clean and adequate. Now the downside. Seamy side of town a few side streets from the transit line. Lots of questionable people wandering the streets, drunk, homeless. Asked the night before leaving for a wake-up call and a reserved taxi--neither happened. Next morning had to recall for a taxi and one finally showed up--not many around. Pearl restaurant was very odd. No bread or rolls. Not much salad on the menu. Seemed to be surprised to have customers at 5 when it opened. Had to get waiter from the bar, who did not know much, but was pleasant. Very noisy bar with ice shakers, etc. We finally figured out the transit system and went to the museum district--bad part of town until we got there, then not much there but the museums. Instead of being called a Curio Hotel, curiosity might be a better name. Stay somewhere closer to where you want to be with a real restaurant. Final comment--management of the restaurant needs to review the menu, train the staff, but keep the chef.

  • SAM I AM

    by N2837LSrichardc on 2018-01-17 04:36 am

    We love the SAM. We don't even live out of town. We just like to come down to the theatre district on the weekends and this hotel is a great jumping off point. Actually, with the Pearl downstairs you really don't even need to leave but if you do... you are a quick walk away from Prohibition, the Conservatory,etc. Or take the hotel sedan (complimentary of course) to Petes Piano Bar, III Forks, Sambuca, Lawless, a ball game, theater under the stars... The theater district is a destination spot but so is this hotel. Tastefully appointed rooms, smart d?cor throughout the hotel, what's not to like? Staff are excellent. Stay here.

  • Marathon base

    This is a great place to stay for the Chevron Marathon. Location is ideal and very close to the starting line. It's a very nice boutique style hotel with personal service unlike many of the larger hotels.

  • Already ready to return

    by David F on 2018-01-09 11:09 am

    It's been a while since I've left a hotel already planning my return. Was highly impressed with the building, my room, location, but most of all I was impressed by the hotel & bar staff. I'm already planning my next trip!

  • Beautiful renovation

    by Texastravveler on 2018-01-09 10:24 am

    I had a little trouble locating the hotel. The facade is rather plain and the most visible signs says The Sam. But I was glad to be inside and see how lovely this former abandoned building has become. The only complaint I would have about the room is that I prefer a tub, big and luxurious, to a shower. But this is preference. The amenities were first rate. The room was clean and well appointed.
