A stone’s throw from the Galleria and the traffic-congested streets of Houston, the St. Regis offers the biggest luxury of all: quiet. For such a sprawling property (232 rooms, plus a pool, a spa, and several restaurants), the rooms feel decidedly homelike, with the fluffiest beds and d├ęcor that doesn’t feel at all stale or corporate. The hotel relies on simple touches to leave a big impact, like the Texas-shaped chocolates at check-in or the live harpist strumming airy accompaniments on the staircase. On weekends, the hotel’s Remington Bar draws a crowd with live music and dancing.
