    Four Seasons Hotel Houston
    Houston, TX
    #1 in Best Hotels in Downtown Houston, Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1566 reviewsTripAdvisor (1566)
    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 to 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giant windows, complimentary Wi-Fi and access to an expansive DVD library, though several thought the rooms were a tad outdated.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
    Houston, TX
    #2 in Best Hotels in Downtown Houston, Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 841 reviewsTripAdvisor (841)
    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 55-inch LCD 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 cited technological issues like the iPad malfunctioning and spotty Wi-Fi service as annoyances they encountered 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 Lancaster Hotel

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1504 reviewsTripAdvisor (1504)
    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 42-inch flat-screen TVs, minifridges, coffee makers and safes. Along with in-room amenities, guests can also take advantage of the hotel's evening wine hours (Monday through Thursday) and the daily hot breakfast buffet; both of which are 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 The Bistro 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.

    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.

    The Westin Houston Downtown
    Houston, TX
    #6 in Best Hotels in Downtown Houston, Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 494 reviewsTripAdvisor (494)

    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 Starwood Preferred Guest or Marriott Rewards program, you'll be able to earn and redeem points during your stay.

    Hilton Americas-Houston
    Houston, TX
    #7 in Best Hotels in Downtown Houston, Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2969 reviewsTripAdvisor (2969)

    Within walking distance of the George R. Brown Convention Center and Minute Maid Park, the Hilton Americas-Houston welcomes business and leisure travelers to its 1,200 guest rooms. Visitors are generally pleased with what they find here, noting the hotel's signature beds, flat-screen LCD TVs and spacious bathrooms come at a good value. 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.

    #8 in Best Hotels in Downtown Houston, Houston
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 525 reviewsTripAdvisor (525)
    Free WiFi

    Guests describe this Houston hotel, which sits just four blocks from Minute Maid Park, as modern yet relaxing. Guest rooms are simple and chic, with classic furnishings and trendy artwork, and the comfy beds, complimentary Wi-Fi and granite-walled bathrooms with glass showers receive a ton of praise. The in-house *17 restaurant also wins travelers over with its funky design and tasty American fare. Although some guests said they'd recommend a stay at this Curio Collection by Hilton property because of the reasonable price, others cite slow customer service, flimsy beds and housekeeping issues as reasons to pay more for another hotel in the area. And because of it's Hilton ties, travelers who choose to bed down at The Sam Houston, Curio Collection by Hilton and are members of the Hilton Honors rewards program can earn and redeem points during their stay.

    Hyatt Regency Houston

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2057 reviewsTripAdvisor (2057)
    Free WiFi

    The Hyatt Regency Houston seems to attract mostly business travelers because of its downtown Houston location. The hotel also features expansive meeting spaces and a full-service business center. But enough shop talk: Previous visitors praise the Hyatt Regency Houston's rooms, which feature warm brown and orange decor, signature beds and iPod docking stations. After a long day on the job, you can take a dip in the sixth-floor heated outdoor pool, while the pleasing ambiance of the LobbiBar makes it a great place for an après-work cocktail. If you have to wine and dine some clients, impress them with stellar city views from Spindletop (the hotel's revolving rooftop restaurant) or with a hearty hunk of meat at Shula's Steakhouse. And because this is a Hyatt hotel, you can pay for your room or earn extra perks through the brand's loyalty program.

    Although The Whitehall Houston first opened its doors back in the late 1960s, recent guests said it's anything but old. The hotel completed a multimillion-dollar renovation in the spring of 2016 that brought sophisticated design and modern amenities to the 259 guest rooms. Travelers will find white linens, hardwood floors and dark furnishings, as well as flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access and coffee makers. Lodgers can also take advantage of the complimentary area shuttle, a 24-hour gym and a business center. Recent guests praised the three on-site food and beverage outlets, which include a grab-and-go coffee and sandwich shop, a Tex-Mex restaurant and an outdoor courtyard with craft cocktails. You'll also find a rooftop pool and sundeck with cabanas and lounge seating. While previous travelers appreciated the downtown location – the hotel is located less than a mile southwest of Houston's Theater District – they cited the Southern hospitality as the main reason for a return visit.
