The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed several of the hotel amenities, including the pool and tennis courts. We also utilized the shuttle service for shopping at the Galleria nearby which was convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Nice Hotel Close to Downtown Houston"
We arrived by car after dark and it was very confusing finding the hotel entrance. The driveway lights were either off or nonexistent. Valet parking kind of expensive at $30 a day leaving one not sure whether to tip or not. Our room was on the concierge floor and was outstanding. The free continental breakfast and all-day coffee and snacks is a nice […] touch. The room was outstanding with a nice bed. Only complaint is that the pillows are very soft and uncomfortable for our taste. It is possible we could have had them changed but we didn't try. The swimming pools and spa are very very nice. Definitely would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"No cell phone service"
Hotel was wonderful. There is no cell service, so that can be a major problem for most people. Hotel staff were very courteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Elegance and Peace"
Everyone at The Houstonian was wonderfully polite and friendly from check in, to dinner and drinks at the bar, to check out and during the seminar I attended.

"Fabulous 40 Birthday Weekend!"
I have been to Trellis, the spa at the houstonian, many times in the past 3 years and it is Fabulous!! One of the best in the country and I highly recommend it. For my 40 I decided to have a local getaway with my hubby, we live just outside of Houston. I could not have been happier to have chosen the houstonian. They treated us like royalty and were […] extra special because I was celebrating with them. Even surprise strawberries and wine in my room when we got back from the pool!! We splurged and did concierge level, highly recommend it. If you are considering booking this hotel i would say Just Do It! You won't be disappointed! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Being in Houston, you feel, as though, you're not"
The Facilities were Excellent, the rooms were most accommodating, and, the dining was Excellent. Food, could have been better at Poolside. The Service was Excellent, in the Dining Rooms. The Service, by the Pool, can be much better. Staff was pleasant and helpful. I know, that we'll be back, soon. This was an Excellent "Stay in Houston" Get-a-way!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good getaway hotel in Houston"
My wife and I stayed at the Houstonian for a four night break in Houston. The hotel is comfortable and the staff is very professional. When we arrived, the check in was smooth and quick. The staff immediately brought our bags to room and explained the room amenities. The hotel is located in a wooded region of Houston making you feel like you are at […] a mountain retreat instead of an urban metropolis. The hotel provides access to the Houstonian health club and spa (one of the best in the country). This extra perk made the stay similar to a spa vacation instead of a city vacation. Location is close to the Galleria and only 20 minutes to downtown. We would definitely stay here on future trips. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing staff. Everyone so helpful and friendly."
From arrival to departure the staff addressed me by my name with smiles. No wait for valet. turn down service was nice. i have to say though Im used to a softer pilow top bed. my only complaint. its a biggie thou. I would recommend it thou. The history and heritage of Houston is strongly represented.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worth the visit"
Great classic revived. However some of the staff and the maids need to have better criteria.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Sports club is outstanding!"
Great Spa and Sports Club. A resort style hotel just 2 milles from Galleria.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in a great area"
Spent 3 nights at the hotel with our 2 kids. We've stayed at other resorts in Houston but this one was centrally located and had an expanse that's seldom seen in an urban environment. They have an outstanding sports complex that can be accessed if you stay at the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Relaxing and shopping"
The stay was great very relaxing and a good location in Houston.The hotel was very clean, the reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 was the bathtub was not really clean. The amenities at the hotel was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We love this hotel!"
Everything about this hotel is marvelous! The grounds are gorgeous, the staff is wonderful, the restaurant is reasonably priced and serves delicious dishes for all meals, and the facilities are spectacular.Genuine Expedia guest review
We booked our weekend getaway less than a week before arriving and were very happy with the price along with the ammenities outlined on web. When we arrived though we were blown away! The staff was so friendly and our room was amazing, all the comforts of home and so much more. We barely left the hotel and restort all weekend! We booked a room on the […] concierge floor which we would highly recomend, its worth the extra price per night. Private access floor with continental breakfast, drinks with snacks for happy hour, and desert after dinner all included; plus you can stop by at any time for coffee, tea, bottled water, juice and soda. We hit the Astro's game one night which was an easy drive and The Galleria for some shopping but otherwise stayed on property. The Houstonian is just by The Galleria and close to downtown but you would think you were in the middle of a forest. Coming down from Austin was an easy drive, we will definately be back! The only suggestion for improvement would be a more extensive menu for The Olivette resturant, a bit limited. Otherwise this is a one of a kind destination. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was a great experience, The restaurant bar food was a great price and quality. Try the fish and chips it was great. It hit the spot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel is conveniently located near the Galleria and has numerous wonderful amenities. The hotel staff was kind and friendly. Check-in and Check-out was quick and simple. My hotel room was amazingly comfortable and very clean. I will definitely be back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Houstonian hotel is the best choice I've made for a while. I booked the room for my parents when they came to visit. The hotel is very elegant and high end. It has greens surrounding the hotel so it provided a nice outdoor walking experience all day long - lots of trees providing the shades and nice grass, etc. Hotel guests also have the access to the […] club next door which is one of the top 10 in the nation! There's not enough good thing I can say about this stay. If the price is right, don't hesitate to book it! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very nice hotel, with excellent staff and rooms"
I think this hotel had the most comfortable beds and pillows of any hotel I have been in. The climate control was outstanding and quiet. The staff was responsive and courteous and the food was outstanding.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent outdoor accomodations. Great pools...and poolside service!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staff nice, but not enough of them"
I experienced some poor service but this was due to being understaffed during their busiest times of the day on a very busy holiday weekend. Staff that was there was awesome and doing the best they could with the resources they had.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent fitness-pool facilities-fitness classes"
Hotel met all expectations. This was our second stay and was able to attend group fitness classes this time. Water classes were exceptional. Fitness club facilities excellent and outdoor walking trail a great way to start the day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Oasis in the City"
This property was such a delightful surprise. My room looked out onto a lush wooded area; was able to walk several miles on the trail system; lots of surprise and delights. There were several well maintained pools. I usually stay in the Woodlands, but wanted something closer to Galveston. This property was a gem and I will definitely stay there in the […] future.

"Really nice and high class location!"
As a single business man coming from Washington DC I got to stay over the weekend in Houston. I was worn from excessive travelling the past weeks and looked for something relaxing with a pool and an overall pleasant atmosphere. Shot the Houstonian from Washington on Expedia with short notice for a decent rate. I was more than satisfied, actually I even […] extended my stay for one night and shortened may stay in the other hotel I booked for the next days. First class service, rooms, staff, everything, shuttle service to the close-by Galleria. And not overpriced, the beer at the bar as well as the food and other stuff. The whole facility is located in an old forest, very green, like a jungle. A very nice trail leads around the campus. The facility is really worth to see. Inside like an old hunting chateau, everything very well maintained, very clean. Nice spacy rooms with very comfortably beds. Many servants around to help and serve where necessary and even where not ...forgot to mention the two pools, the huge Spa complex and tennis courts, and, and ...I will definitely check availability next time when going to Houston. Just fear the rates then are not the same anymore. In fact it was the not so busy weekend before the 4th July. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Beautiful hotel tucked away in an oasis in the middle of uptown Houston. Great location so it was easy to get out to night life and shopping. Nice spa. Great service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"One of My Favorites!"
For the past few years, I have been attending a yearly event at the Houstonian and always look forward to this one. Even with summer heat/humidity- this hotel experience makes it perfect!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just a hotel really - disappointing."
The hotel was nice, but not a special as anticipated. It was disappointing to find that we were charged for parking at the hotel It is disappointing to be charged for water in any hotel, but an exclusive hotel where a premium is paid, should not charge for water. The bathroom was a dated and small. The pool was out of action due to cleaning. There was […] nothing relaxing about the Spa. Very over-crowded. Everything was expensive. It was a nice hotel, but is being run like United would run it. Charge for anything they possibly can. I can find better hotels in Houston for less money, so will not stay again.

"One of a kind in Houston"
There is truly nothing like this tucked away oasis. The rooms are a bit on the small side if you are trying to fit a family of four in one room for a week or more, but the service is great and our kids would be very upset if we stayed anywhere else during our frequent trips to Houston.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great resort in the city."
We went to this hotel as a family. The service was spectacular. The grounds are beautiful and the amenities are even better. It was like being in a resort in the city.Genuine Expedia guest review
Wonderful place to have a great get-away weekend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Always a great place to stay...classy, elegant, and conveniently located.Genuine Expedia guest review
This place is in a great location in the middle of the city but feels like it's out in the country. From our room we could only really see an unlandscaped forest like green space with a creek. Pretty amazing when you consider where you are. The service was top notch as well as friendly and helpful. The spa facility and pool area are absolutely incredible […] with any kind of activity that I could want. Self parking is a little clumsy and difficult to navigate from the garage to the lobby. Not bad but not great. This is one of the best hotels I've ever seen and may be my favorite. The only downside was an overwhelming air freshener perfume smell in parts of the hallways as well as the stairs going to the parking garage. There was a staffing issue curbside at checkout. There were 2 guys trying to load and unload cars at peak time. There probably should have been at least 6. We were lucky and only had to wait about 10 minutes. Some waited much longer. I would actually consider this to be a destination hotel and look forward to coming back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect getaway!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Amenties but hotel staff need training"
I think the facility is very good. You avoid the Galleria traffic which can be a major hassel. The fitness facility is one of best in the country and there is no charge. The food service at the club is very reasonably priced and the service is good. Unfortunately, the housekeeping staff and guests speak too loudly in the corridors. With doors having […] a 1” undercut the sound pours into our room. The rooms are spacious but the closet is very small. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Look no further"
After a mixup with my reservation (which was Not the hotel's fault), the staff at The Houstonian went above and beyond in making my stay exceptional. This hotel is first class all the way with a great spa, fantastic walking trail, wonderful gym and great food. I can't wait to go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
