My family loves all that the hotel and gym has to offer for an active family. Nice restaurant and plenty to do without having to leave the property.
The staff at the Houstonian was top notch in every way. I cannot say enough good about them.
The hotel needs to be updated, especially the guest rooms.
Delicious breakfast and good pool.
Corridors to rooms need a good clean and spruce up.
Everything in the Houstonian is thoughtful and well-planned to make guests feel valued at the highest level. This hotel stands out as an incredible place to put on any bucket list.
Memory foam mattresses have come a long way and I would recommend the changing of the mattresses out for better technology. From a business perspective, that is a huge huge expense but the investment would most definitely make a positive impact.
Peaceful oasis after a busy fortnight
Air con in public areas far too cold
The Houstonian does luxury in big Texas fashion with Texas-lodge décor and 18 acres of woodlands wrapped around the four-floor expansive resort. The hotel is recognized as the long-term residence of former President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush. Guests today are luxury travelers seeking a leisure vacation. The Houstonian is secluded on an 18-acre forested property bordering Memorial Park, just outside Houston’s 610 Loop. Other than office buildings, there is not much within walking distance. By car, the location is convenient to major roadways, Uptown Park Mall and Galleria Mall, which can also be reached with a free shuttle ride and offer 400 shops, restaurants, and an ice rink. Also, 15-to-20 minutes away are The Museum of Fine Arts and Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston Symphony, Alley Theatre, Downtown Aquarium-Houston, and George R. Brown Convention Center. Sporting events at Minute Maid Park, the Houston Toyota Center, and NRG Stadium are also just a short distance away. Luxury is big in amenities on-site. The resort’s star attraction is the Houstonian Club, featuring a state-of-the-art facility that rivals any commercial health club. It offers 250 modern machines, two racquetball courts, indoor/outdoor tennis courts and tracks, an indoor basketball court, rock-climbing walls, and studios for a variety of classes. Steam rooms and saunas are also provided, as is a Kids’ Gym, and a café with healthy options. There is also a Mediterranean restaurant, and another fine dining facility, as well as a stylish Arbor Grill, located poolside and a bar with live performances. Three pool, a full-service spa, a business center, and conference facilities are also available. Accommodations are simple and elegant with floor-to-ceiling views and modern amenities. Suites and Executive Suites offer finer designs and amenities.
