How it Ranks: The Sam Houston Hotel ranks #22 out of 184 Houston Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.

Our Take: Guests describe this hotel, which sits just two blocks from Minute Maid Park, as modern yet relaxing. Guestrooms are simple and chic, with classic furnishings and trendy artwork, and the comfy beds, complimentary Wi-Fi, 40-inch LED TVs and room cleanliness receive praise. The in-house *17 Restaurant also wins travelers over with its funky design and tasty American fare. Overall, previous guests were satisfied with The Sam Houston Hotel, saying that it was a great hotel compared to other (much pricier) Houston digs. Others, however, were troubled by steep parking fees, somewhat slow customer service, and late-night noise from nearby nightclubs.
