Although Houston is the fourth largest city in America, a stay at The Houstonian’s immaculate 18-acre wooded oasis right in the heart of city might make you forget you’re in a city all together.
Upon entering The Houstonian, the lobby exudes a colonial ambiance that looks like an exclusive cigar lounge. With rich colors and textures this is luxury at its best. Guest rooms were plush with character and have every modern convenience right at your finger tips. And the floor-to-ceiling windows offer ample lighting along with exquisite view of their well manicured landscape surroundings.
If you are here for business, after a hard days’ work, the executive lounge provides all facilities that a business traveler would require and is the perfect escape for a much needed evening cocktail.
Their health & spa centre is something you must indulge in and is an oasis on its own. With modern facilities that cater to your every desire, from three outdoor pools, an expansive gym with indoor track, full size basketball court, Pilates room, Yoga, and more. The locker rooms had luxurious lounges with free coffee and tea, plus there was a cafe inside the gym for those who require something extra. The pool water was quite warm, so even with cool temperatures you could still swim outdoors or use the outdoor hot tub.
The Houstonian’s exclusive spa, Trellis, is a gem of excellence. Complete with an indoor heated plunge pool to use while waiting for your massage, hot tub, steam room, and deluge shower. Or, you could wait upstairs by the fireplace and have coffee. Lastly, if you are there at the right time of the day, you may cross paths with former President George Bush, Senior.
If you are looking for a fabulous meal, the hotels exclusive restaurant Olivette is considered to be one of the best dining experiences in Houston. Their Executive Chef presents the best of modern American cuisine with a Mediterranean touch that is an absolute delight and a well kept secret.
I would definitely recommend The Houstonian Hotel, Club and Spa for any nature of your travels. With staff that caters to every guest requirement from business to leisure to romance, when it comes to Houston hotels, there truly is nothing like The Houstonian.
