Recently, as you may know already, we stayed in Houston Texas for about 2 weeks for my PRRT cancer treatment. We stayed at the Homewood Suites by Hilton. It was very disappointing considering how much money we spent there. So, I decided to post a hotel review of the Homewood suites by Hilton in Houston Texas. Let me just give you the facts and you can decide for yourself if it works for you.
We spent well over $2,3000 for a 2 week stay. The suite included 2 separate rooms with bed and bath and an area to relax and watch TV. Also included was a small kitchen and a complimentary breakfast and light dinner most days/nights. My room, with my AAA discount was well over $160.00 per night and was supposed to include a walk in shower rather than a tub/shower. The floor on the shower was cracked and the crack ran the full length shower pan. I was fearful of falling through the floor as the entire crack opened up and the floor seemed to weaken under my feet when I stepped in. In addition, there was mold on the rug near the air conditioner which was leaking water.
Now, you may have already surmised that I am not the “squeaky wheel” type of person but I did complain. That was very disappointing. Especially since they had tried to patch the floor previously. You could see the previous efforts which were showing cracks. So, they rented this “suite” to me under the guise of it having a wheel chair accessible shower yet they already knew it was broken. Very disappointing. They gave us $10 credit per night.
So, here’s what I did learn. When you sign up for the PRRT treatment at Excel Diagnostics they give you a list of hotels to help you find lodging. This list is only a suggestion. They will come and inspect your room at any local hotel as long as it is accessible to them. If you remember, they inspect your room and “clear” it for future occupancy because of the radiation threat posed by the PRRT cancer treatment.
My next task is to find another place to stay for my next treatment. Hopefully, I will find something a bit less pricey!
