|Holiday Inn Hobby Airport|
|Is situated on the North Eastern Side of the airport with great views of the action.Hotel is of a good standard with great swimming pool. There is a free car park outside the hotel and the wifi was free with a ticket given to you everyday with the new password. The bar restaurant was very good and breakfast was excellent too and the staff were lovely and friendly|
|Location:||**||Located on NE perimeter of the field.|
3rd floor room facing the airport will give great views of the action, especially Runway 22. Room 622 comes highly recommended.
Following report from Derek Oldham
The hotel is a sort of flat V shape if that makes sense. 6 floors and I was pre-allocated room 620 (a king bed) which is the nearest to the centre of the hotel on the left hand side of the V as you look out. This room had a completely unrestricted view across the whole airfield – lots could be read off with binoculars but an SBS needed for the furthest runway. Even numbers from 620 up to 640 are on this side of the hotel – the lower the number the better. Reasonable prices in the bar/lounge for food with beer $5 a bottle.
A report from Dean Mitchell :
There are six floors and floors five and six are ideal. After checking in I found the room at the wrong angle and so went to change the room which puzzled the receptionist as it meant a downgrade of room type. On investigating the top floor you need an even number room ending in 20 -44 as these are at a favourable angle for airplane fans. So she found it funny that someone was actually happy being downgraded in room type. The new room given was 520 and this provided a much better angle and looked straight down runway 04/22. They did not use it much that night but the next day it was the main runway so result.
As it was a Sunday night bizjets started to move a reasonable amount but it was mainly airliners with Southwest very dominant. Saw about 80 different ones with all models present although the 500′s were the biggest movers. Saw 8 different new 800 models which helped me get to 16 new frames.
Monday morning was great until my check out time of 12.00 with a steady stream of bizjets and kingairs. Could see four different ones on approach at one stage.
