    Houston, TX
    #1 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1045 reviewsTripAdvisor (1045)
    Free WiFi

Most guests say the customer service is excellent, too (perhaps reminiscent of the famous Italian hospitality). Visitors enjoy spending time by the pool and in Bar Malatesta, where drinks are often accompanied by live music. To top it all off, Hotel Granduca gladly welcomes pets, pampering them with treats and special pillows. What's more, Leaders Club members get perks like room upgrades and complimentary breakfast at this hotel.

    Free WiFi

    Sitting about a mile from The Galleria, The St. Regis Houston is one of only a few five-star hotels in the city. And like others of its caliber, the St. Regis Houston earns its commendation with all of its luxurious amenities. Previous guests say that the outdoor pool is gorgeous and that they enjoy soaking up some sun in the comfy lounge chairs lining the pool deck. The on-site fitness center and spa also garner praise, with R&R-seekers recommend indulging in one of the many body and skin treatments available. When dinnertime rolls around, treat yourself to a hearty steak at The Remington Restaurant. Guest rooms are decked out in hardwood and leather furniture and stocked with deluxe amenities like flat-screen TVs, Italian bed linens and Bose Wave music systems. Because this Houston property is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston
    Houston, TX
    #3 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 38 reviewsTripAdvisor (38)
    Free WiFi

    Sleek decor, modern amenities and a standout concierge are just a few reasons why recent guests heap praise upon The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston. The property's 250 rooms and suites are outfitted in warm cocoa, gold and mahogany hues, featuring 50-inch smart TVs, marble bathrooms (also equipped with TVs, plus dual vanities, a tub and a separate shower), free Wi-Fi access and Nespresso coffee machines. Amenities outside the rooms abound as well: The hotel houses a salon, a spa and a fitness center equipped with weight and cardio equipment, including two Peloton bikes offering live cycling classes, seasonal wellness events and occasional exercise classes. The pool area, billed as a "tropical sanctuary," is lined with cushioned lounge chairs and cabanas – and travelers say it's another fantastic perk of staying here. When it comes to dining, visitors have their pick of five venues, serving everything from steaks to seafood to French fare. The hotel is also home to a chic lobby bar and The Cellar, which boasts an inventory of 30,000 bottles of wine curated by the property's sommeliers. You'll find The Post Oak Hotel about 7 miles west of downtown Houston. Keep in mind, this hotel is part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts portfolio, meaning I Prefer Hotel Rewards members can pay for stays with I Prefer reward certificates.

    The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa
    Houston, TX
    #4 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 879 reviewsTripAdvisor (879)
    Free WiFi

    Sitting about 7 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), it's no wonder a lot of recent guests couldn't find a reason to leave the property. Some visitors even say that this is the "perfect place" to stay, praising the spacious 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.

    Hotel ZaZa Houston

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1880 reviewsTripAdvisor (1880)
    Free WiFi

    ZaZa hotels have a bit of an eclectic reputation, and the Houston branch is no different. For instance, animal-print chairs accompany crystal chandeliers, and bold-patterned carpets offset one-of-a-kind artwork. But somehow it all comes together. Guests describe Hotel ZaZa's ambiance as memorable, and they praise the trendy-yet-comfortable guest rooms (stocked with private bars, complimentary internet access, rainfall showers and Gilchrist & Soames bath products). If you can afford it, splurge on a "concept" suite. The themed decor in these spacious digs really showcases Hotel ZaZa Houston's attention to detail. Travelers also praise the property's facilities, especially the poolside lounge where you can kick back and nurse cocktails all afternoon. Or, you can find your bout of R&R in ZaSpa before digging in to a gourmet meal at Monarch. And should you find yourself going slightly stir-crazy, Houston's Museum District is just steps away.

    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    Whether in Houston for work or play, recent guests weren't disappointed with their stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Houston. This five-star property is located downtown on Lamar Street, making it easy to get from your room to game day at Minute Maid Park or the big meeting at the George R. Brown Convention Center. However, you might find leaving the premises harder than you think: Previous guests rave about the guest rooms, which are decked out in cozy cream hues and include amenities like luxury bath products, giant windows and complimentary Wi-Fi access; though, several visitors thought the rooms were a tad outdated. If you do decide to vacate your room for a few hours, you'll uncover an in-house spa that offers everything from seaweed masks to hot stone massages, as well as an outdoor deck with a pool, hot tub and fire pit. You also won't have to look far for dinner; previous visitors only had good things to say about the Italian fare served at the on-site Quattro restaurant. But what guests like most about this member of the Four Seasons family is its stellar customer service.

    JW Marriott Houston Downtown

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1145 reviewsTripAdvisor (1145)
    Free WiFi

    This JW Marriott outpost is set downtown (as its name suggests), within walking distance of many Houston attractions like Minute Maid Park and the Buffalo Bayou, businesses and the convention center. The hotel has plenty of on-site diversions as well, such as a spa, a gym, a restaurant and a lounge. After you've explored all the JW Marriott Houston Downtown and the city has to offer, retreat to your guest room, where a shaved chocolate art turndown treat awaits your return. Each room also comes equipped with a Nespresso machine, free internet access, a flat-screen television and an in-room iPad that controls room service and valet retrieval, among other things. Despite the ample amenities, recent guests offer mixed reviews about this property. Some said they were impressed by the service staff and loved the hotel's location, while others were disappointed by the layout and views in their accommodations during their stays. Keep in mind that because this is a Marriott property, this hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program, meaning guests can collect and redeem points here.

    Free WiFi

    Favored by guests for its sheer decadence, Hotel ICON caters to a trendier crowd. Occupying the former Union National Bank just north of downtown Houston, the Hotel ICON offers a highly ornamental baroque style of decoration. Rich colors, lush fabrics, ornate patterns and numerous objets d'art fill the lobby and guest rooms, mingling with in-room amenities like soaking tubs and complimentary high-speed internet access. (Guests highly recommend booking a corner room for more natural light.) Soom rooms come with a private whirlpool, and all guests can indulge in the succulent dishes at Line & Lariat restaurant. Traveler hoping to explore the area surrounding the hotel had best keep in mind that parking is expensive here though. As a member of the Autograph Collection, Hotel ICON accepts and doles out rewards to members of the Marriott Bonvoy program.

    Hotel ZaZa Houston Memorial City beckons to visitors in search of contemporary accommodations and a boutique atmosphere. Located in Houston's Memorial City area, less than 12 miles northwest of the city center, the midcentury modern hotel houses more than 11,000 square feet of event space, a spa, an outdoor pool and a fitness center, among other amenities. On-site dining options are limited to the Tipping Point Restaurant and Terrace, but past guests praised the eatery's delectable offerings. For more options, travelers can visit the adjacent Memorial City Mall or take the property's free shuttle to any restaurant within a 5-mile radius. Inside the 159 guest rooms and suites, visitors will find original artwork, complimentary Wi-Fi access, stocked bars, work desks and upscale toiletries. Several accommodations offer private balconies, and suites feature unique decor inspired by regions like New Orleans, Africa's safari parks, India and Havana, Cuba. Previous lodgers enjoyed the eclectic, spacious accommodations but warned that a stay here is expensive.

    The Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE has staked a good reputation among guests and travel experts alike, boasting numerous accolades.

Plus, the Monnalisa eatery contains a fireplace and a starlit ceiling. Although its central location adjacent to the CITYCENTRE complex might mean late-night noise, recent guests still rave about the well-equipped and colorful rooms that include complimentary Wi-Fi. If you can, reserve a room on the opposite side of the hotel for a more satisfying slumber.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 167 reviewsTripAdvisor (167)

    Hotel Alessandra is located in the heart of Houston, near many of the city's restaurants and shops, and some of its top attractions. The hotel's 223 rooms and suites come with floor-to-ceiling windows, monogrammed robes, LED TVs, minibars, free Wi-Fi access and Nespresso coffee machines. Accommodations are decked in white, cream and gold hues, with emerald-green furniture and pillow accents. Recent travelers praised the clean and modern (albeit minimally appointed) rooms and appreciated the various luxury amenities they were able to take advantage of. Hotel Alessandra offers visitors complimentary transportation within a 2-mile radius in a Maserati, a particularly popular perk. Guests staying here also have access to a fitness center, a rooftop pool and bar, and a spa, plus many nearby parks to enjoy walking, jogging, biking and hiking. When it's time for a bite to eat, head to Lucienne for decadent Mediterranean cuisine or Bardot for drinks and light bites. Another highlight for past travelers was Hotel Alessandra's service: Previous guests noted everyone from the front desk to the valet to the housekeeping staff was friendly and helpful. What's more, the property can host meetings and events in its ballroom or executive room.

    Sitting less than 2 miles from The Galleria, these luxurious digs beckon to shoppers with high-end taste. Guest rooms at this Omni property look like they belong in on a magazine cover, with stylish gold and black decor and fantastic views. In fact, black is the Omni Houston Hotel's signature color: The hue permeates the hotel, from the property's pet black swans (yes, swans) to the swanky Black Swan bar and Birdies Cafe & Bar. But not everything about this hotel comes in such dark attire; the Mokara Spa & Salon, for example, appears bright and refreshing, while the outdoor pool and deck see plenty of sunshine. Most visitors love the feel of the property (in addition to its good looks) and appreciate its convenient Houston location. Guest rooms feature marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and coffee makers. Recent visitors do warn that all the superfluity comes at a price. Like its sister hotel, the Omni Houston Hotel Westside, the Omni Houston Hotel accepts and doles out Omni Select Guest rewards.

Visitors are just as complimentary of the guest rooms, which feature brightly colored decorative accents (which add a fun, quirky feel to the hotel's historic architecture), minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi. When it's time to eat, chow down on contemporary American fare in The Lounge or have it delivered to your room. Recent guests say that this Houston property is a great bargain given its location and long list of freebies, but some visitors say that the hotel needs to work on its customer service, citing disorganized staff as its only downside. Keep in mind that because this is a Tribute Portfolio hotel, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn and redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    The Westin Houston Downtown (formerly the Inn at the Ballpark) combines traditional charm with modern amenities in its location right across the street from baseball's Minute Maid Park. But if baseball is not your thing, business travelers still appreciate the location and lobby bar. No matter the reason for the visit, most guests say that you'll find this Houston hotel very comfortable and friendly. Guest rooms feature plush furnishings and warm, earthy tones, as well as flat-screen TVs, high-speed Internet access and signature bath products. If you don't fill up on peanuts and Cracker Jacks while at a game, sit down to dinner at this Westin's Vic & Anthony's, which earns high praise for its steaks. Previous visitors also recommend this hotel for its staff, noting that everyone they encountered was especially friendly. And remember, if you're a member of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you'll be able to earn and redeem points during your stay.

    That saying, "Everything is bigger in Texas," certainly rings true at the Marriott Marquis Houston. Among this hotel's superlatives are a 5,000-square-foot spa and fitness center, a Texas-shaped lazy river, 52 meeting rooms and 1,000 guest rooms and suites. Open since December 2016, this Marriott wows travelers not only with its stellar customer service, but also with its location in Houston: The hotel overlooks Discovery Green Park and is connected to the George R. Brown Convention Center. What's more, it sits less than a mile south of Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros. Back at the hotel, guests will have access to six dining venues and an infinity pool, not to mention well-appointed accommodations. Rooms are outfitted with minifridges, 55-inch TVs, floor-to-ceiling windows, coffee makers and access to 24-hour room service. Though reviewers were pleased with their lodgings, they did lament the $12.95 daily Wi-Fi access fee (which is waived for Marriott Bonvoy members). For the best views of the park and the hotel's lazy river, heed recent guests’ advice and request a room on a higher floor.

Most recent visitors praised this Hyatt Regency's cleanliness and staff, but some lamented the expensive valet parking fees.

But while they may not mind the initial room rate, some visitors didn't take too kindly to this Hilton's long list of additional fees, lamenting having to pay for internet usage and parking. But sometimes, convenience costs: Not only does this hotel provide prime access to downtown Houston, it also houses a full-service spa, a fitness center, a pool and two restaurants, 1600 Bar + Grille and Pappasito's Cantina. And because of its Hilton family ties, this property accepts and rewards points to Hilton Honors loyalty club members.

Recent guests appreciated the on-site amenities like the indoor-outdoor pool, fitness center and sauna, but reviews were mixed on service and decor. Some recent visitors felt the service was top-notch and enjoyed the updated rooms (most of which were renovated in 2015), while other guests cited thin walls and lackluster cleaning service as not being up to "JW standards." Though they may disagree on whether or not you should sleep here, visitors do recommend the on-site restaurant, praising the locally sourced "Texas cuisine with a fresh twist" served at Destino. Because this hotel is a member of the Marriott hotels family, Marriott Bonvoy members can use points to pay for rooms or upgrades.

    The Westin Galleria Houston
    Houston, TX
    #23 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1098 reviewsTripAdvisor (1098)
    Free Parking

    Serious shoppers (aka shopaholics) should look no further: This Westin, as its name suggests, is not just next to, but actually connected to The Galleria. The hotel even gives guests a complimentary "Passport to Shopping," which contains exclusive coupons for some of the stores. Chances are that if you're staying here, you won't be spending much time in the hotel itself. But if you need a break from mall madness, this Houston property boasts all the Westin classics, including Heavenly Beds and a WestinWORKOUT fitness studio, as well as a pool and the trendy White Oak Kitchen + Drinks restaurant (which is shared with its neighboring sister hotel). Though some guests complain about the high room rates and hefty parking fees, members of the Marriott Bonvoy programs can save some dough by paying with rewards points.

    DoubleTree by Hilton Houston - Greenway Plaza
    Houston, TX
    #24 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1149 reviewsTripAdvisor (1149)

    Many say DoubleTree by Hilton Houston - Greenway Plaza is a good choice for both business travelers and sightseers given its affordable rates and convenient location around 6 miles southwest of downtown Houston. Still, some say that while the hotel is adequate, it doesn't afford the same charm that some of Houston's other properties offer. The guest rooms are fairly typical of a DoubleTree hotel, with gold and blue decorative accents, large beds and high-speed internet access (for a fee). The property also boasts a nice lobby bar to enjoy an après-work drink, a well-equipped fitness center to burn off some stress and an outdoor pool to kick back and soak up the rays. And at the end of the day, you can sit down to a tasty meal at Rocks @ Greenway Bar. Plus, this hotel participates in the Hilton Honors rewards program.

    Omni Houston Hotel at Westside
    Houston, TX
    #25 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1781 reviewsTripAdvisor (1781)
    Free Parking

    Sitting around 17 miles west of downtown Houston, this Omni hotel isn't exactly convenient if you plan to do some sightseeing. However, recent guests were surprised by how much they liked this location. Rubbing elbows with Bear Creek Pioneers and George Bush parks, the Omni Houston Hotel at Westside offers easy access to nearby golf courses and jogging trails, and you'll have free use of the hotel's expansive outdoor pool and fitness center. Previous visitors love the newly renovated rooms – decked out in soothing brown hues, plush furnishings and large bathrooms – and common areas. Enjoying a sizzling steak at Café on the Lake (with great views to boot) is another must-do, travelers say. And because of its family ties, the Omni Houston Hotel at Westside participates in the Omni Select Guest rewards program.
