On a recent visit to Houston we'd thought we'd take a detour the first night and look for a spa/hotel for some R&R. After much searching we discounted anything in Houston and settled on The Woodlands only 30 mi north of Houston and short drive from IAH (Bush airport). Driving in we marveled at the truly "wooded" setting, lush like a park. The hotel is older but very nice, more like a golf resort and conference center but perfect for our needs. The spa was delightful with an attentive staff, hotel staff the same. We had a wonderful Sunday brunch, delicious and excellent value. It exceeded our expectations. Although the buildings were built in '70's lack some styling the room was large and nicely appointed. No complaints at all. There were many pools, we can see it is a great place for a family stay as well. We will definitely come back for a "quiet" stay. Nearby is the Woodlands Waterway in the town that is also worth visiting. That was an amazing surprise, very impressed with this hotel and community.
