Where to stay in Houston for 2 nights

We are finishing our Texas trip with a 2 night stay in Houston.

We will be arriving from San Antonio and will have 1 to 2 days sightseeing. As we are with small children (3 and 1) we wanted to see NASA and the Children's Museum.

Can someone advise me of a good area to stay with the kids, given the travel we will do getting the museums and then also heading to the airport on our last night. Many Thanks!

Hotel Za Za is close to the museum district (and downtown). It is also easy to get to NASA. As other options any of the other downtown hotels.

Hotel ZaZa is great, but it's one of the more expensive hotels in town. If you're going to be here on a weekend, the hotels in the medical center area are usually quite inexpensive, have access to the metro rail system, are very close to the museums, and will give you everything you need, and are probably more kid-friendly.

Recommendation was made based on assumption that you'll have a car at your disposal, as NASA is about 25-30 miles away from Houston itself. You'll really need a car (or take an expensive round-trip cab ride) to get there.

When you say you'll be heading to the airport, the assumption is Houston Intercontinental, which is approximately 20-25 miles north of the city, but most of the car rental agencies have dropoff points there. That airport is really not close to the museum district at all. I hope this clarifies the recommendation a little.

Yes we will have a car with us. We'll be arriving from San Antonio on a Wednesday afternoon. Thursday we'll do Nasa and then Friday we'll do museum district before driving to the airport in the evening
