My wife and I will be spending 3 days in Houston from December 21st to 24th. I live in Austin and I���������ve been to several times to Houston. But besides Astrodome, Galleria Mall and few Pakistani restaurants, I haven���������t seen too much of Houston. I am pretty familiar with Houston highways and streets. My wife is arriving to United States first time in her life. My question is what romantic spots and fun places I can take her in this time of the year? We don���������t drink so night clubs and bars are out of question. We can only eat halal or kosher meat. I my self love seafood and its pretty easy to find in any restaurants. But she is not into seafood. We both are not into veggie food either. So what are my choices for dinning out under these strict conditions?
I have booked a room in Marriott at West Loop Galleria for an amazing prize of $50 per night. Thanks to priceline.com. I am not sure what kind of room we would get at that bargain. Also does hotel staff treats you differently if you are staying at the place where usually the rate is $150 per night? What kind of service should I expect? Should I be able to ask for normal services that come with normal price? I know these question might sound dumb but pardon my ignorance on this topic. I���������ve stayed in small motels here and there but I���������ve never stayed at a nice 3.5 star hotel; therefore I don���������t know how things work at fancy hotels.
Also what are the other attractions around Galleria Mall? I���������ve been to Galleria Mall couple of times but are there any shopping places outside the mall. It���������s easy to find the list of stores inside Galleria Mall but I couldn���������t find any info about other shops outside Galleria Mall.
My main reason to post this thread was to ask about some good romantic spots besides fine dinning. If anyone has any suggestions please reply. Thanks in advance
