When to Visit

Houston has a pleasant year-round climate, and the hotel prices don't fluctuate much season to season, so there isn't really a bad time to visit. That makes the choice of when to visit one that is likely to depend on your own interests.

The humidity can take some getting used to in summer, but this makes it a great time for finding a hotel deal. This season also features festivals such as Carnival Houston in May, the Houston Beer Festival in June, and the Freedom Over Texas Festival in July.

Experts suggest visiting in spring or fall, when it's not too hot and not too cold. These weather conditions are ideal for enjoying the city's outdoor attractions, such as the Buffalo Bayou and the Houston Zoo.
Texas is famous for its barbecue, and you can sample some of the best at the World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest every February. March brings the Livestock Show and Rodeo and an additional 16,000 guests to Houston. If you're a baseball fan, head to Minute Maid Park in April for the start of the season. Fall also has a number of great events, including Fiestas Patrias in September and Dia de los Muertos Festival in October.

Houston has mild winters, but make sure you pack a few warm clothes so you're prepared for the odd freeze. There are fewer festivals at this time of year, except for seasonal celebrations such as the Mayor's Official Downtown Houston Holiday Celebration and Chanukah Fest. This relatively bare event calendar can see some hotels discounting their prices.

Luxury Hotel Options in Houston

4 Star Average Prices: $128.99

Houston's five-star hotels offer unsurpassed luxury to their guests. You'll feel like a valued visitor when you stay at one of these first-class establishments.

According to Condé Nast Traveler, Hotel ICON isn't just one of the best hotels in Houston; it's one of the top 100 new hotels in the world. Located in Houston's busy downtown area, Hotel ICON's well-appointed rooms are matched by the pampering of its BALANCE Day Spa and the gourmet meals served in its award-winning on-site restaurant, BANK.

The St. Regis Houston is conveniently located between the exclusive River Oaks neighborhood and the Galleria, Houston's most famous retail destination. Floor-to-ceiling windows in each room treat guests to views of Houston's parks and city skyline. While all rooms are generous, options such as the Junior Suites, Astor St. Regis Suites, Grand Luxe Rooms, and the opulent Presidential Suite give guests a little more space. The St. Regis's employees pride themselves on customized service that doesn't just meet, but exceeds, guest expectations. The Remington Restaurant on site is a favorite Houston dining spot.

Most luxury hotels in Houston have a classic luxury feel, but Hotel ZaZa breaks the mold. It's a quirkier, more boutique offering in the Museum District. Dramatic décor with dark woods, red furnishing, and leopard print carpets sets the scene. Little touches like down comforters and plasma televisions will help you feel at home. The Urban Oasis, with its pristine pool, outdoor bar, and private cabanas, is the perfect place to unwind.

For more space to spread out, book a room at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. This 18-acre resort is an oasis in the middle of downtown Houston, with three pools, eight tennis courts, and a rock climbing wall on site. If making use of those fitness facilities seems too much like hard work, make an appointment at Trellis, The Spa at The Houstonian. With an indoor float pool and more than 100 pampering treatments, time here will help you forget about all the stresses of day-to-day life.

4 Star Hotel Prices in Houston

Low Cost Hotel Options in Houston

3 Star Average Prices: $102.27

Most of Houston's cheap hotels are on the outskirts of the city. The Red Roof chain has affordable rooms at its Red Roof PLUS+ Houston - Energy Corridor, Red Roof Inn Houston – Westchase, Red Roof Inn Houston IAH Airport, and Red Roof Inn Houston East. Little perks like free Wi-Fi Internet and parking help your dollar go further.

Super 8 is another cheap and cheerful chain with various locations in the Houston area. Rooms at the Super 8 Willowbrook, Super 8 Houston North I-45, Super 8 Houston/I-10/Federal Road, Super 8 Houston/Brookhollow NW, and Super 8 Houston Hobby Airport South are typically available for less than $100 a night.

If you'd prefer to stay closer to the city center, Houston International Hostel is your most affordable option. Located in Houston's Museum District, Houston International Hostel has welcomed travelers from around the world for close to a century. Its Native American artifacts and spacious porch give it a unique character.

Houston: Real Discounts

Many hotels across Houston offer special deals to qualifying guests. The following establishments offer some of the best discounts in the city.

Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria extends a 10 percent discount on the best room rate to AAA and CAA card members and guests 55 and over. In addition, when AAA and CAA card members enjoy family vacations, kids under 12 can order a free children's meal at the hotel restaurant with every adult meal purchased.

All Hilton Worldwide hotels in Houston extend a 10 percent discount to military personnel and their families. Residence Inn Houston Intercontinental Airport at Greenspoint, Courtyard Houston Brookhollow, Crowne Plaza Houston River Oaks, The Houstonian Hotel Club & Spa, and Hilton Houston Post Oak are just some of the hotels that offer this discount.

Magnolia Hotel Houston, once named the best boutique hotel in the city by Houston Press, also offers a variety of discounts. If you work for the military or government, are an AAA or AARP cardholder, or you're traveling in a large group, ask about a discount when booking your room.

Best Value Options in Houston

Houston's bed and breakfasts are great value for visitors. Because they're small, family-run businesses, the owners tend to go the extra mile to entice travelers away from the big hotel chains.

The double rooms at Sara's Bed and Breakfast Inn all feature high-quality Serta Executive Suite mattresses fitted with down blankets and pillows, TV sets, minifridges, and private baths. The inn offers wireless DSL Internet and coffee on demand at any hour of the day or night. The complimentary breakfast includes made-to-order eggs, waffles, pancakes, grits, sausage, cereals, pastries, and specialty items on weekends including quiche and potato casserole.

Robin's Nest, a bed and breakfast in Houston's Museum District, also prides itself on its freshly cooked homemade breakfasts. This spacious inn has three buildings – Big Nest, Little Nest, and Third Nest – each with its own character. All rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi access and high-quality furnishings.

Or you might choose CitySpaces, a centrally located bed and breakfast within walking distance of restaurants, stores, entertainment, and metro services. Guests can enjoy a free light breakfast each morning. With free Wi-Fi and movies, you're not likely to get bored when you're spending an evening in.

Free Attractions in Houston

While it's possible to spend a lot of money entertaining yourself in Houston, guests in the know can see plenty of the city for no cost at all.

Many local museums offer free admission between selected hours on Thursdays, including the Children's Museum of Houston, the Holocaust Museum Houston, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and the Museum of Fine Arts. There are also many museums that are always free, such as the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, the Houston Center for Photography, the Menil Collection, and the Jung Center.

The Houston Zoo is one of the city's most popular attractions, but a family visit can be expensive. Save your pennies and visit for free from noon until closing time on the first Tuesday of the month.

It also won't cost you anything to take a 90-minute cruise around the Houston Ship Channel, courtesy of the Port of Houston Authority. Tours run Tuesdays to Sundays and are so popular that you'll need to reserve your place. Call 713-670-2416, or visit the Port of Houston Authority website to secure a spot.

You can also get a dose of culture for free in Houston. Pack a picnic blanket and visit the Miller Outdoor Theatre, inside Hermann Park, from March to November. Its productions are diverse, ranging from classical music, ballet dancing, and the works of Shakespeare. Best of all, every show is free. Market Square Park also has plenty of free events over summer, such as movie screenings and live music.

Houston is an exciting city with plenty of great attractions and events to keep tourists entertained. Whether you're on a tight budget or you're looking for a more lavish vacation, you'll find just what you're looking for in Houston.
