Spent our final 2 nights here for some downtime after a busy sightseeing fortnight. The hotel, although busy, was an oasis away from the hustle and bustle. A stately American hotel which had a ‘hunting lodge’ feel to it. All oak, game and chandeliers. Rooms 442 and 444 ( we travelled with friends) were uber comfortable and we took the upgrade for continental breakfast, supper and complimentary drinks. Multiple swimming pools were a blessed release from the Texas heat and the food served in the main restaurant was expensive but sublime. The best oysters ever! Staff were friendly and helpful. Only downside for which I knocked off the 5th star was that the air con in all public areas kept the place freezing and far too cold for me. I had to keep going outside to warm up. I took a wrap into the restaurant and my friend had to borrow one. The restaurant was obviously used to this as they had them on hand! Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it. Ps. George W Bush’s home in on the property (used when he was head of CIA and now a lunchtime restaurant) and he lived in the hotel for a while when he was Vice President.

Hotel's Favorite
All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and all the facilities were elegant and delightful!! Very conveniently located to many important places in the Uptown / Galleria area - although it hardly seems necessary to lave the facility once one has arrived. The sports facility is fantastic while the spa drew raves from all our lady friends & family who attended.

My daughter and I do a yearly trip together and decided on Houston this year. I have had The Houstonian as a place of interest for a while now. I'm happy to say it was everything I had hoped for in a vacation spot. First off, the staff is genuine. I've stayed at places in the past where it's pretty obvious the staff is slapping on that smile when they see you, but they were frowning just a few seconds earlier. Not here. I caught them many times enjoying their time at work and with their colleagues. That's the first sign that the management and owners are doing something right. You want to know how a business is doing? Look at how their staff is feeling. I come from the hospitality business, so this is the first thing I look at in both hotels and restaurants. The hotel as a whole is sparkling clean, and the food is awesome. I highly suggest the morning room service. It feels good to wake up to delicious food with good ingredients served on a fancy table in my room. Yes please! I thought maybe since this place was a little on the fancy side, the other guests would be a tad cheeky for our taste. Instead the guests were respectful and kind. Lastly, the facilities are amazing with pools, tennis courts, workout gyms and beautiful grounds for a morning jog. The Houstonian has it's own little utopia going on.

My husband and I had a quick 1 day trip to Houston and stayed here. It was lovely. The highlights were the pools, the workout room, and the breakfast at the restaurant. I already miss it and want to go back.

My family has lived in Houston for over 20 years and I had only been to the Houstonian once for an event. I didn't even realize that they also operated as a full-service hotel! My husband booked a Valentine's package for us while we were visiting my family, and it was above and beyond our expectations. We used their car service to go over to the Galleria because my husband decided he wanted something different to wear for dinner. We had parked our car with the valet but I know better than to try to park at the Galleria! The driver was chatty and pleasant and gave us his number for getting back, in case we didn't want to wait for the next scheduled pickup. Our package included a dozen roses in the room, and it was an enormous, gorgeous arrangement. Easily a $200+ long-stem affair! The package also included a special S'mores dessert for 2 in the restaurant, which was unique. We both enjoyed it very much and the food was excellent. We weren't able to try many of the facilities, since we were there in February. I would absolutely go back, though, now that I've discovered what a jewel it is in the middle of the city!
