Best Hotels In Houston

Post Oak Hotel Uptown

The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston in Houston (TX) - Room Deals, Photos &  Reviews

Post Oak Hotel Uptown is luxury defined – from private helicopters to the multi-million dollar art collection that adorns the walls. Situated in Uptown District, elegant rooms are contemporary and boast indulgent marble bathrooms. Cocktails are served to private poolside cabanas and the wine collection is second-to-none.

This is a real has-it-all property. Set in 27-acres of woods and offering a vast sports club complete with two pools.

Four Seasons Houston

Four Seasons Hotel - Houston | Hotels in Houston, TX 77010

Houston’s downtown site of one of America’s most iconic luxury hotel brands offers walking distance to Minute Maid Park, Toyota Center, and House of Blues. Inside, Dad can work on his swing at the indoor Top Golf, Mom can relax at the spa, and the whole family can dive into the popular saltwater pool. (Be sure to watch for a visiting professional athlete or celebrity.) Kids can delight in movie time at the pool, which offers a smorgasbord of sweet treats.

Hotel Sorella

The Hotel Sorella is the undisputed draw for those in west Houston looking for a weekend retreat. The Sorella’s CITYCENTRE location makes a family escape a breeze with its kid-friendly, programmed central green, plus a multitude of pedestrian-oriented dining, retail and entertainment options ranging from Studio Movie Grill, Escape Game and Bowl & Barrel. Hotel guests can purchase day passes to the adjacent, 140,000-square-foot Life Time Athletic Club with indoor and outdoor pools, indoor basketball, rock climbing wall, and childcare.

Marriott Marquis

For a waterpark experience without leaving the Greater Houston confines, locals need look no further than downtown’s Marriott Marquis and its massive Texas-shaped (and Texas-sized) lazy river pool. Since its opening, visitors have swarmed the hotel’s Parkview Terrace, where they hop in tubes and drift down the river, lounge in the infinity pool — that overlooks Discovery Green — or soak in the hot tub.

Hotel Alessandra

3 Reasons We Love a Hotel Alessandra Staycation | Houstonia Magazine

Gracefully appointed with European flair (the lobby makes for perfect selfies), the Alessandra brings a romantic, old-world charm to downtown. The hotel’s many packages (spa days, couples, etc.) make for an easy way to explore the Alessandra’s offerings. Food and drink is a draw here: the Bardot lounge is modeled after turn-of-the-century bars in London. Enjoy a sip there, then head to Lucienne for Mediterranean and French-inspired fare.

The Post Oak Hotel

Houston’s billionaire Tilman Fertitta built his palace for an opulent, over-the-top experience catering to society elites (see the exclusive 25th-floor club), titans of industry, and visiting moguls.

The city’s only hotel to achieve the coveted AAA Five Dining Rating is a shining example of the luxury lifestyle: the wine room alone boasts a $3 million inventory. The hotel’s crystal chandelier is valued at $1 million, as are paintings by artist Frank Stella. Well-heeled guests can even opt for the hotel’s helicopter service. Then there’s The Spa, 20,000 square feet of first-to-market treatments and pampering.
