Our Favorite Houston Hotels

We love to travel far and wide, and we know that you do too! Sometimes though, you just need a quick getaway to a hometown hotel for a little R&R and to let the amazing staff spoil you. Everyone loves a staycation – so we’ve put together a list of our favorite Houston hotels for a weekend (or a week!) getaway.

Houstonian resort and Spa

The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa

1This Houston icon is a historic gem and offers the truly rare experience of feeling fully secluded while still being conveniently located in the heart of the metropolis. The hotel, the renowned Houstonian Club, and the newly renovated Trellis Spa are surrounded by 27 acres of wooded beauty. However they are still conveniently located near the Galleria and Uptown for easy access to shopping, dining and nightlife. If you would prefer to escape from it all, there’s no need to leave the property during your stay, as the four onsite restaurants offer a perfect option for everyone looking to wine, dine and unwind.

la Colombe d'Or

La Colombe d Or

2This landmark Houston hotel had just reopened after a multi-year, head-to-toe renovation that perfectly maintains the property’s history while reimagining it for the modern day. Nestled in the heart of Montrose, the hotel offers guests easy access to great dining, museums, and boutique shopping while providing an escape from the hustle and bustle. With three unique accommodation options, including suites in the historic mansion, residence-style suites in the newly constructed towers, and bungalows clustered around a private courtyard nearby, there is something for every traveler.

Post Oak Hotel Pool

The Post Oak Hotel

3Soaring above Uptown and the Galleria, The Post Oak Hotel is a beacon to modern design and modern living. With an entire city block of space, the hotel offers access to an award-winning spa, multiple dining options, both casual and fine dining, and even an auto showroom (in case you want to take home a new ride), all without leaving the grounds.

Zaza Hotel

Hotel ZaZa Museum District

4While Hotel Zaza has opened some new hotels, including their second Houston property in Memorial City, we still love the original best! Set in the heart of the Museum District and just around the corner from Downtown, the hotel offers a unique and luxurious experience for travelers. Whether you’re staying in a traditional guestroom or the NASA-inspired “Houston, We Have a Problem” suite, the property’s quirky personality shines around every corner.
