    Hotel Granduca, Houston
    Houston, TX
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1045 reviewsTripAdvisor (1045)
    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.

    Mokara Hotel & Spa
    San Antonio, TX
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1742 reviewsTripAdvisor (1742)
    Free WiFi

    Sitting just a short distance from San Antonio's River Walk, Mokara Hotel & Spa appeals to business and leisure travelers alike with its elegant decor and long list of amenities. Despite its downtown locale, Mokara Hotel & Spa's rooms are fairly spacious, featuring four-poster beds and plush lounge furniture wrapped in neutral tones. Recent guests highly recommend reserving a Riverview Room, which allows you to look over the River Walk from a private balcony. You can also get a good look at the city from the property's beautiful rooftop pool. When you're not ogling the vistas, indulge in Mokara Spa's soothing treatments or take the advice of previous visitors and nosh on sustainable seafood at Ostra. Previous visitors say the friendly staff makes staying here truly memorable, but those bringing a car should beware of expensive valet parking fees.

    Hotel ZaZa Houston
    Houston, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    Hotel Valencia Riverwalk
    San Antonio, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3448 reviewsTripAdvisor (3448)
    Free WiFi

    This trendy see-and-be-seen enclave on San Antonio's River Walk attracts the hippest and wealthiest lodgers. Dorrego's restaurant set the chic tone of the property, as stylish guests and locals sip impressive cocktails. The guest rooms are just as elegant: The European-style accomodations center around a cozy bed and feature deluxe amenities like flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, Egyptian cotton linens and private bars. And after a fashionable night out, guests find the Hotel Valencia Riverwalk's nightly turndown service (available upon request) to be the perfect, welcoming touch to close the evening. Late-night noise is prevalent, but that comes with the territory. Should you need a little pick-me-up come morning, an in-room massage should do the trick.

    Hotel ZaZa Dallas
    Dallas, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1329 reviewsTripAdvisor (1329)
    Free WiFi

    Located just outside the city center, the boutique Hotel ZaZa Dallas lures style-minded guests with its Poolside at ZaZa (a hot spot often frequented by Hollywood A-listers when they're in town) and its Concept Suites that feature themed decor. Even if you opt for a regular room, you'll find yourself staying in the presence of one-of-a-kind artwork and Mediterranean-inspired decorative accents (as well as 42-inch flat-screen TVs and minibars). Most guests love the furnishings, the service and the restaurant, though Hotel ZaZa Dallas' quirky style isn't for everyone. When you're not snoozing or lounging by the pool, you can pamper yourself with a massage or work up a sweat at the ZaSpa Dallas, or treat your taste buds to a variety of innovative flavors at Dragonfly.

    The Joule
    Dallas, TX
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1212 reviewsTripAdvisor (1212)
    Free WiFi

    Some hotels aim for historical luxury, while others lean more toward contemporary-chic. The Joule does both, combining antique accents (check out the massive mechanical wheel in the lobby) with multicolored lighting and modern art. Recent guests say they were beyond impressed with the decor, as well as the numerous amenities, including a library and several shops. The Joule's stunning infinity pool is also worth a look: Its daring rooftop design earned it a spot on our list of the Prettiest Hotel Pools. And when dinnertime rolls around, grab some contemporary Texas fare at CBD Provisions. The hotel's location isn't bad, either; rooms look out over Main Street in the heart of Dallas' historic district.

    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    The Éilan Hotel & Spa, Autograph Collection earns high marks from recent visitors for its contemporary amenities and clean, comfortable accommodations. All guest rooms are appointed with a warm beige, white and blue or gold color scheme, as well as 42-inch flat screen TVs, work desks, Keurig coffee makers and tiled showers. Other perks like in-room bottled water and internet access are covered by the daily $22 destination amenity fee.

Families can enjoy quality time at the children's pool area, while adults can take advantage of the offerings at the Spa at Éilan. While recent lodgers enjoyed the amenities, they warn that management is not up to par with other Marriott properities. Still, those who participate in the Marriott Bonvoy program can collect or redeem points here. You'll find the Éilan Hotel & Spa located just 17 miles northwest of the Alamo in downtown San Antonio, Texas.

    Hotel Crescent Court
    Dallas, TX
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 691 reviewsTripAdvisor (691)
    Free WiFi

    The Hotel Crescent Court provides an eclectic setting in the heart of Dallas' trendy Uptown district. Guests love the Hotel Crescent Court's opulence, though travelers feel that the property would benefit from some renovation efforts. Everything at this central Dallas property – from the paintings on the walls to the guest rooms – feels oversized. Families particularly appreciate the extra-large rooms and give kudos to the hotel's attentive staff. Parents can unwind at the spa or partake in a delightful afternoon tea: The property offers babysitting services as part of its kids program. Meanwhile, gourmands will enjoy dining at Nobu, which serves up an eclectic array of Japanese food. For lunch, grab a table at the The Conservatory and follow it up with a classy cocktail at Beau's.

    Hotel ICON, Autograph Collection
    Houston, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1388 reviewsTripAdvisor (1388)
    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.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 469 reviewsTripAdvisor (469)

    Sitting several blocks west of the Blanton Museum of Art and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, Hotel Ella offers a quiet respite from the rowdier scene found downtown. This 47-room, boutique hotel is housed in the Goodall Wooten House –first built a little before 1900 – and beckons to R&R-seekers and history buffs. Hotel Ella features a pool, fitness center as well as Goodall's Kitchen and the connected parlor-style bar of the same name. The hotel's guest rooms feature LED TVs and complimentary wireless internet, as well as tufted furnishings and marble bathrooms. Travelers also say that Hotel Ella has fantastic customer service. What's more, guests have access to a house car service that travels within a three-mile radius of the hotel.

    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.

    W Austin
    Austin, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1339 reviewsTripAdvisor (1339)
    Free WiFi

    Surrounded by some of Austin's favorite entertainment joints and within walking distance of major attractions like the Austin Bats and Zilker Park, The W Austin puts you at the epicenter of the action. Its ultra-chic design may seem somewhat out of place in this funky city, but recent guests said that the guest rooms and amenities live up to the W's reputation. The hotel did infuse a hint of the city's "weird" culture into the decor: Rooms feature throw pillows with brightly stitched designs, offsetting the serene blue hues that envelop the space. Like Austin itself, the W Austin earns high praise from recent guests for its friendly, fun atmosphere, claiming that they felt extremely welcome here. And they're not the only ones: The hotel's Pets Are Welcome (P.A.W.) program makes sure that even the four-legged members of your party are well cared for. Because W Hotels are part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Hotel Contessa
    San Antonio, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3631 reviewsTripAdvisor (3631)
    Free WiFi

    Perched quietly on the scenic River Walk, Hotel Contessa offers large suites with an atmosphere of class and comfort. Recent guests have been impressed with Hotel Contessa's genuinely friendly staff, which sets this property apart from large chain hotels found in downtown San Antonio. If you are tired of touring the sites, you can retreat to the Woodhouse Day Spa or the heated rooftop pool and Jacuzzi. As the evening draws to a close, indulge in innovative Spanish cuisine at Las Ramblas Riverwalk Restaurant or grab a cocktail at the Cork Bar. And when it comes time to hit the hay, you'll find Hotel Contessa's rooms to be spacious, if not fairly standard with amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi and oversized bathrooms. But compared to room rates at other hotels, recent guests felt they got more than what they paid for at this Benchmark Hospitality property.

    The Highland Dallas, Curio Collection by Hilton
    Dallas, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 600 reviewsTripAdvisor (600)
    Free WiFi

    New to the Hilton brand, The Highland Dallas is the first hotel in Hilton's boutique Curio Collection and aims at adding sleek personality to the hotel. So far, recent guests haven't been disappointed with the swanky digs or the customer service, saying staff goes out of their way to meet their needs (including those of your four-legged friends). Pooches aren't the only ones pampered at this property, however: Treat yourself to a massage or yoga class at the Exhale Spa before spending a lazy afternoon by the infinity pool and an evening at the popular Knife restaurant. When it's time to sleep, you'll find Italian Frette linens and 32-inch flat-screen TVs in your room. And while these features – combined with a great seat near the southeast corner of Southern Methodist University's campus – surely capture guests' attention, most visitors say that it's the warm, welcoming staff that make their stays memorable. Members of the Hilton Honors loyalty program may use their existing points for perks like free room upgrades.

    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 Bonvoy program can earn and redeem points by choosing to stay here.
