The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa sits on an 18-acre wooded oasis right in the heart of the city. Combining first-class comfort with casual elegance and attentive, personalized service, this classic Houston hotel is kitted out for the most discerning visitor. And it’s pretty darned lavish—the grandeur of this palatial hotel is equaled only by the 125,000 square foot fitness facility, where walking from one side to the other could be considered a workout. All this luxury draws a thriving business in high-end weddings. With a gargantuan kiddie Centre Pompidou-like climbing complex in the spa, we suspect you won’t see much of your kids while you’re here.
