U.S. News Review

Sitting about 8 miles west of downtown, this hotel calls itself "a wooded oasis in the heart of Houston." And with its multiple pools, tennis courts and jogging paths (all set in 18 acres of forest), that's exactly why a lot of recent guests couldn't find a reason to leave the property. Some guests say that this is the "perfect place" to stay, praising the enormous guest rooms not only for their space, but also for their amenities. Inside your digs you'll find L'Occitane bath products, Keurig coffee makers and occupancy sensors to let housekeeping know when you're in the room so as not to disturb you. If you're looking to burn some energy, you'll find a rock climbing wall and a gymnasium — where more than 100 fitness classes are held each week — at your service. Meanwhile, The Houstonian houses four distinct eateries. Visitors claim that you need several days just to explore the entire property, but do warn that if business or pleasure takes you into downtown Houston you'll need a car.
