We are in our 60's and plan to visit Houston in December. Which area would you advise for us to stay to visit the following by public transportation or organised bus tours:
Tunnel and City tour
1) Do we need to book accommodation in downtown to be able to get to these places either by public transportation or by bus tour companies? Do the bus tour companies pick up from the hotels e.g. Residence Inn Houston Downtown/Convention Center in Dallas St?
2) We want to go out for dinner and have a stroll at night - would you recommend the hotel listed above for this? Is it safe to walk in the streets? We want to pay a maximum of $US150 a night for a room.
