Husband’ s birthday at the Bar

This last visit was definitely memorable thanks to our cocktail waitress, Noor. She provided friendly, yet very professional and attentive service. I wanted a cocktail that was not too sweet, nor too strong and she proceeded to recommend that we try their “frozen cosmopolitan” and it was a hit. She then discovered that it was my husband’s birthday through conversation and surprised us with a birthday dessert. It was a molten lava dessert and it was to die for. Nice and warm, with a oozing center. We will definitely be back for tasty cocktails and top notch service.

Staff is amazing - Executive Lounge is a Must!

Houston, Texas

Came in to the lounge on Thursday (08.13.19) and Milton runs the club lounge. He was extremely helpful, sociable, handsome, and amazingly friendly. He ensured we had a proper view, full glasses and plenty of hors d’oeuvres. Milton made our visit very warm and enjoyable. Cannot say enough nice things about the display of the hors d’oeuvres, room, and everything in general. After happy hour at the executive lounge, we wondered downstairs for one more drink before ending the night. The hotel was hosting a big event in the lobby next to the Axis bar so we were able to enjoy live music, too. Noor was our waitress and she was top notch! Very attentive and friendly and ensured we had full drinks and a great time. The hotel is very lovely and I cannot say enough nice things about everyone I encountered, even Daniel at the front desk. I definitely recommend staying here.
