    The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston
    Houston, TX
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    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
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    The Whitehall Houston
    Houston, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 752 reviewsTripAdvisor (752)
    Free WiFi

    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. What's more, members of the iPrefer hotel rewards program can earn or use points here.
