Omni Houston Hotel

Omni Houston Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 378-room Omni Houston Hotel is big on both style and substance. Well-appointed, modern, and comfortable, the hotel sits in a lovely residential area just outside Memorial Park. The huge, white exterior may be a bit commanding and cold, but inside the hotel attempts to sooth with a Zen-like lobby with calming water features and delicate white orchids. Beautiful, updated guest rooms have flat-screen TVs and alarm clocks with MP3 hookups, while damask-printed accents provide a sophisticated touch. In the bathrooms, oversize mirrors and wallpaper add a designer look. Perks of the property include two geometric pools with a bar and private cabanas, two restaurants (one for dinner, one for all three meals) and a bar, a spacious fitness center, and a full-service spa. Kids have something to enjoy too -- fun-filled backpacks upon check in, as well as free milk and cookies during their first night's stay. On the downside, both valet and self-parking cost extra, and the hotel is far from the city's major attractions.

Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston

Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 485-room, business-oriented chain hotel is located off the busy West Loop freeway, within walking distance to shops and restaurants. The big lobby has comfy seating areas, and a large curving staircase stationed next to a baby grand piano adds wow factor. The classic, chain-like rooms have big, comfortable beds with crisp bedding and fluffy pillows, and leather arm chairs. Suites feature small kitchenettes, while all rooms have flat-screen TVs and minibars. The bathrooms are simple and clean and feature high-end Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. The Royal Sonesta has no on-site spa, but the concierge can arrange in-room massage services. Amenities include a modern fitness center, a classy restaurant and bar, and an outdoor pool in a sunny courtyard.

Magnolia Hotel Houston

Magnolia Hotel Houston Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 314-room downtown hotel is housed in a 1926 building that was the original corporate headquarters of Shell Oil Company. But it's not all about historic appeal here -- guests are greeted by the fantastic modern lobby, which features high ceilings, curved suede sofas, soft lighting, and a cool fireplace. Each room is outfitted with premium bedding, thick velvet drapes and flat-screen TVs. Gorgeous bathrooms feature marble and granite, and each has a separate walk-in shower and big soaking tub. There's no spa, but guests can access the 24-hour fitness center or hit up Houston's only rooftop pool and Jacuzzi for some sun and relaxation. The hotel also offers some great perks, including free shoe shines, free daily breakfast, and an evening reception with assorted beers and wines. Bedtime milk and cookies are also served -- a cute and comforting touch.

Omni Houston Hotel at Westside

Omni Houston Hotel at Westside Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 400-room Omni Houston Hotel at Westside is an upscale business chain located in a suburban area near Memorial City Mall. This older property completed a multimillion-dollar renovation, and the stunning lobby now features a large koi pond where tall, slender trees extend from small circular islands. Other additions include a makeover for Black Gold Bar, a down-home place accented with animal skulls and dark wood. Rooms have contemporary, but bland, decor, and flat-screen TVs. The bathrooms are clean but generic, and shower/tub combos have dated pink tile. The fitness center is big and modern, and the outdoor pool is huge compared to those at comparable properties closer to downtown. The hotel has several meeting rooms for business travelers, but free Wi-Fi is only available to Omni Hotel members (it's free to join). The location is far from Downtown Houston, so it's best suited for those doing business in the area.

Hotel Indigo Houston at the Galleria

Hotel Indigo Houston at the Galleria Rating: 3.5 Pearls

From the outside, the 131-room Hotel Indigo resembles the Embassy Suites chain across the way, but its interior is considerably more stylish. Cool cobalt blue walls, striped chairs, and beachy murals make it feel like a beach resort in the center of Houston. The rooms are fresh and bright, with tall ceilings and nautical-themed furnishings. Small kitchenettes feature sinks, tiny coffeemakers, and mini-fridges; microwaves are featured in all suites as well, and in standard rooms upon request. Modern bathrooms have walk-in showers, half enclosed with glass (there's no door). Crossroads Bistro & Bar serves casual fare for breakfast and dinner, and the small fitness center has modern equipment (though the free weights are beat up). Business travelers will likely appreciate the business center and meeting rooms, as shopping-minded visitors will appreciate the proximity to the Houston Galleria.

Embassy Suites Houston - Downtown

Embassy Suites Houston - Downtown Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Embassy Suites in downtown Houston goes above and beyond the expected standards of a mid-range chain hotel. Rather than drab furniture and so-so amenities, this hotel features bright, modern decor throughout, from the lobby to the 262 suites, while the heated rooftop pool has cool water features and quality lounge chairs. The hotel largely caters to business travelers -- with amenities such as free Wi-Fi, a 24-hour business center, 24-hour room service, and a 24-hour fitness center -- but families can also appreciate the big suites featuring separate living areas with sofa beds, wet bars, and huge flat-screen TVs. Freebies such as hot breakfast and a nightly reception are additional upsides. If you're bringing your car along, however, be prepared to pay a steep daily parking fee; unfortunately, that's the norm in the area.

Sheraton Suites Houston Near the Galleria

Sheraton Suites Houston Near the Galleria Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Sheraton Suites' reputation as a business-friendly chain lives up to its name in this professional, unpretentious hotel near the Houston Galleria. The 281-suite property features a sophisticated lobby with a grand painting of the Texas landscape. One- or two-bedroom suites are well-appointed with flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers equipped with Starbucks coffee. The rooms are classic and modest with cappuccino-colored walls and basic, contemporary hotel-style furniture. The beds have fluffy white bedding, and the bathrooms are nice and clean (although the wallpaper is a little old-fashioned). Amenities include a solid fitness center, a well-known steakhouse chain, and a lounge serving alcohol.

Best Western Plaza Hotel & Suites at Medical Center

Best Western Plaza Hotel & Suites at Medical Center Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 150-room Best Western is a budget hotel within a medical center, just a few blocks from Rice University. It largely caters to business travelers in the area and often those visiting the hospitals; the hotel provides a free shuttle to the nearby facilities. The hotel features an indoor pool and a fitness center but both are mediocre -- the pool area is a bit drab and the fitness center is very small, with only a few cardio machines. Nonetheless, the hotel is a solid value: Rooms are spacious and offer free wired Internet access (though no Wi-Fi), hot breakfast and parking are free, and inexpensive suites are available with kitchenettes. The hotel does not have a full-service restaurant.
