    Hotel Granduca, Houston
    Houston, TX
    #1 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1022 reviewsTripAdvisor (1022)
    Free WiFi

    Inspired by Old World Italy, the Hotel Granduca treats Houston visitors to a taste of Europe. From the gourmet cuisine at Ristorante Cavour to afternoon tea, this property knows how to help guests slow down and unwind. You can pick from a number of room types, the most luxurious being the Residenza Imperatore, which has its own separate entrance and 2,100 square feet of space. No matter which room you choose, you'll enjoy plush beds with Italian linens surrounded by antique furnishings and artwork. 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.

    The St. Regis Houston
    Houston, TX
    #2 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 689 reviewsTripAdvisor (689)
    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 Rewards members can earn and use points here.

    Four Seasons Hotel Houston
    Houston, TX

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1730 reviewsTripAdvisor (1730)
    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.

    Hotel ZaZa Houston
    Houston, TX
    #4 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1871 reviewsTripAdvisor (1871)
    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.

    JW Marriott Houston Downtown
    Houston, TX
    #5 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1079 reviewsTripAdvisor (1079)
    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 Rewards program, meaning guests can collect and redeem points here.

    The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa
    Houston, TX
    #6 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 867 reviewsTripAdvisor (867)
    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 ICON, Autograph Collection
    Houston, TX
    #7 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1369 reviewsTripAdvisor (1369)
    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 Rewards program.

    The Lancaster Hotel
    Houston, TX
    #8 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1526 reviewsTripAdvisor (1526)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    The Lancaster Hotel occupies a prime spot in downtown Houston, amid numerous theater venues, including Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, the Revention Music Center, Alley Theatre and the Wortham Theater Center. So it goes without saying, fans of music and the arts often book a room here thanks to its proximity to these venues. Apart from its convenient downtown location, what keeps guests returning time and time again is The Lancaster's customer service staff. Previous visitors said the hotel's employees are charming and friendly. As for accommodations, travelers can choose from rooms or suites; all of which are outfitted with flat-screen TVs, minifridges, coffee makers and safes. Along with in-room amenities, guests can also take advantage of the hotel's daily hot breakfast buffet, which comes included in the $14.95 daily hotel fee. The fee also covers access to the business center and day passes to the nearby gym. Other meals can be enjoyed at Cultivate F+B or from the comfort of your room thanks to 24-hour room service. And according to past patrons, the on-site cuisine is tasty. When it's time to explore what Houston has to offer, The Lancaster offers a car service that will transport guests around town anywhere within a 3-mile radius of the hotel.

    Omni Houston Hotel

    #9 in Best Hotels in Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1938 reviewsTripAdvisor (1938)

    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.

    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    Just a few blocks west of Minute Maid Park, this hotel starts the day off with a complimentary breakfast buffet and ends the evening with a free happy hour reception and bedtime cookies. As well as these perks, recent guests rave about the Magnolia Hotel Houston's rooftop pool and Jacuzzi, describing the skyline views as fantastic. 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 Rewards program can earn and redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    The Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE has staked a good reputation among guests and travel experts alike, boasting numerous accolades. It's easy to see why this West Houston hotel is so popular, with its rooftop infinity pool and its sleek and modern (yet still comfy) design aesthetic. 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.

    If you're in Houston to do some shopping, you're in luck: The Westin Houston, Memorial City rests just across the street from the Memorial City Mall (and is connected to it via skywalk). Even if you don't feel like exercising your credit card, recent guests say that this Westin property is great, as long as you don't need to be in the heart of Houston. Sitting about 13 miles west of downtown, The Westin Houston, Memorial City earns high praise for its friendly staff, with visitors commending everyone from the bartenders to the cleaning crew. Guest rooms feature flat-screen TVs, plush bathrobes and internet access (for a fee). The hotel's 18th-floor infinity pool and fitness center are also appreciated perks, and many recommend dining at the 024 Grille at least once during your stay. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here.

    Located in west Houston by The Galleria, a large mall roughly 10 miles away from downtown Houston, the Hyatt Regency Houston/Galleria provides an oasis for both business and leisure travelers. Families will enjoy the property's outdoor pool and sun deck, while those who are staying here for work can make use of the hotel's business center and 19,000 square feet of meeting space.

After working up an appetite, guests can sit for a meal at Urban Star Restaurant or take the complimentary shuttle to any eatery within a 3-mile radius. Or, retreat to one of this Hyatt outpost's 325 accommodations, which sport a simple, modern design and include amenities like flat-screen TVs, coffee makers, minifridges and walk-in rain showers. Most recent visitors praised this Hyatt Regency's cleanliness and staff, but some lamented the expensive valet parking fees. These frustrated guests suggested looking for cheaper parking options off-site. World of Hyatt members can also save some money by using accrued points to pay for stays 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 Rewards program, you'll be able to earn and redeem points during your stay.

    Formerly an InterContinental hotel, the Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria occupies prime real estate near The Galleria – and thanks to the hotel's complimentary shuttle, you don't have to spend all your shopping money on transportation. Recent guests say that they were wary of the property's re-branding, but were pleasantly surprised by the Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria's luxurious feel. Though, some still feel service isn't as good as it once was. Visitors describe the guest rooms as plush and spacious, approving of the simple, neutral decor and cozy beds. The Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria also wows with its fifth-floor outdoor swimming pool and 24-hour fitness center. Many guests find the international fare served at ARA Restaurant to be well above par and the restaurant staff to be excellent.
