A 2017 renovation has given the thirty-five-year-old hotel a glossy new exterior and a sleekly finished leather-and-glass lobby. Grab drinks at the chic bourbon bar and practice your swing at the indoor golf simulator projected against the walls. The spa and gym now have a couple’s suite, nail bar, and top-of-the-line facial treatments; the mix of guided workout classes will keep you occupied in your downtime. Not to be outshone, the tricked-out guest rooms are done up in a crisp palette of whites, creams, and the occasional splash of blue; plus, there’s a collection of “specialty suites” that look more like the inside of a storybook castle than a city hotel. Venture outside and you’re a stone’s throw from the bustling Theater District and a short walk over from Discovery Green and Houston’s best restaurants, including the beloved Xochi.
