There are a few hotels near the airport proper, and that may be your best bet. There's not a lot of "nightlife" around the airport. I'd suggest the hotel so you don't have to hassle with your luggage if you went out.

Enjoy your short stay in Houston!

Everything pretty much shuts down at 2:00a, so really not much options other than stay at the airport or find a hotel. You will need to be back at the airport by about 5:00a for the 9am flight.

I agree with Posts #1 and #2. Sometimes the Marriott that is in the Airport itself will give you a half night rate, especially if they are half empty. You'll have to check with the hotel directly however.

If you'll be hungry, there are lots of places that cater to late night crowds. Alcohol is no longer served at 2am, but there are several after hours bars and the eateries in those areas are lively at night. You'll have time, but watch the clock.

The airport will be dead. We take a game of Chinese checkers with us when we have to be in the airport late at night.

Edited to add:

Wear pants and bring a light jacket or sweater--the airport is kept at a temperature of about -16.

I don't know of any places nearby,except for a Denny's or IHOP that serve food later after 11pm.

Going to the Marriott, La Quinta or other nearby hotels might be your best option. Be sure to call the off property hotels, to see what time their shuttles stop running, at night.

Hope your trip goes well.
