I enjoy the community of residents at The Rice. I've been able to make a few friends, and appreciate the kindness of of my neighbors. The staff here is professional and friendly, especially the concierge staff. I do believe that the cleaning staff could be utilized more frequently, but overall the building is kept tidy. It's wonderful being able to walk outside and have quick access to a variety of dining and entertainment options.
My only issue is the security of the parking lot. I've witnessed many non residents enter the parking lot during weekday afternoons and weekends. I wish there was a way to prevent that.
Overall, I like living at The Rice, and I love being downtown Houston!
