“Best Hotel in Houston!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I have stayed at the Houstonian several times and will continue to stay anytime I am in Houston; this hotel has very friendly and professional staff. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. The gym facility is top notch! You won't be disappointed.

I had a really pleasant stay. Service was good and the staff friendly. The room was ok, the bed very confortable. Overall, what I liked the most is the atmosphere, huge fireplace in the lobby, lots of painting of deers and games, which requires a certain taste but definetly provide charactere to the place.

The surrounding are great, wooden area to jogg, a huge gym and when I say huge it has everytinhg one could dream of to do cardio, weight, even climbing, basket ball and large outdoor heated swmming pools.

I also had the cahnce to try the Trellis Spa for a massage. I have nothing but praises about that place too !

Houstonian is my favorite place to stay in Houston,Texas. Management is hands-on and the staff is professional friendly and offer exceptional service. The rooms are generous in size very comfortable. It's the best night sleep away from home. The grounds are meticulously kept and you feel as if you're at a resort! Either a business trip or time away the Houstonian is the place to be! Don't forget to schedule a spa treatment. It will certainly take you far far away!

I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at the Houstonian Hotel. The service was excellent and the accommodations were lovely.

I was there for 2 nights on business and I found the hotel to be a welcome respite in the heart of the city. The bedroom I had was facing the pool, and I may have been lucky, but it was very quiet. I also thought the room was a nice size, with a sittng area for doing work on my laptop. The bathroom was small but everything was clean and well appointed.

The only thing that was a bit disappointing were the meals. I had lunch and dinner at the bar within the hotel and the food was average.

I also had an opportunity to enjoy the spa and it was fabulous. All my services were very good and the client service was outstanding. It's a beautiful spa, and I've been to many throughout the country. I would definitely come back and enjoy the Trellis Spa.

Overall an excellent balance of work and relaxation!

I stayed at the Houstonian for the first time last week, and I came away impressed. The grounds were a green oasis right in the middle of Houston and the service was excellent. My room was very comfortable, clean, and luxurious. I will definitely be staying here again.

I love it when my husband and I have 3 day getaways! We decided to stay at the Houstonian because of the location and reputation. First of all it felt like it had been there forever (no idea maybe 30 years?). You feel like you are in a park, the Hotel is surrounded by protected green space. The Hotel itself blends into the greenery, not a high-rise and also includes seperate buildings for a gym and spa. There is a walking track around the entire ground which I used every morning, The gym is the best I have ever scene, part of the "Houstonian Club". We spent an afternoon at the spa indulging in facials, massage, steam and lunch......heaven. I do not have any photo's but next time I visit I will be sure to post.
We booked a king room on the "concierge" level which included continental breakfast, afternoon snacks and evening wine. Well worth it.

Room Tip: All rooms are extremely quiet. Use the walking track!

I stayed at The Houstonian for two nights on business. First, the property is beautiful as you drive in and immediately they treat you wonderfully. The reception desk personnel were friendly and had upgraded me to the 4th floor with is the Concierge floor. The room was average size but beautifully appointed. It looked out among the trees and was probably the quietest room that I had stayed in a long time. The bed was very comfortable. They refreshed the room at night and left chocolates on the pillow - another special touch! The bathroom is a little small but again it had everything that I needed. I had lunch at their restaurant - Olivette and it was great. The service and the food were excellent. I was attending a meeting at the hotel and the food served for the meeting was also excellent. I did go to the concierge reception room for breakfast on the last morning and the food was good and it is a lovely way to start the day. Anytime that I had a question of anyone at the hotel they were friendly and helpful. There is a great walking path around the property and you also have access to the Health Club which is incredible. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. I hope that I will have an opportunity to stay at The Houstonian again - it was a real treat!

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on the back side of the hotel which was very quiet.
