The hot stone massage was hands down the best massage I've ever gotten! I can't wait to go back!

What can you say about The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa that hasn’t already been said? Does the number one hotel in Houston deserve its status as the namesake of the city? You hear the name everywhere in advertising for its restaurant and gym. It’s also known as the place where Halliburton holds its annual shareholders meeting. Nice place if you can find it. The modest sign outside the complex of buildings and winding drives and trails on acres of forest along Buffalo Bayou belies the grandiosity of the place. With its hunting-themed decor and green humid surroundings, the hotel feels like a lodge. VIPs get keys to exclusive top “club” levels with access to their own lounge. Hard to believe Dick Cheney was here.

Wonderful service, but perhaps a tad too eager and rushing of the travelers. The rooms are comfortable with ample space to work or to party (or get ready for a party). Went for a wonderful wedding, so it's also a great large-event venue. The hotel juts into a wonderful arboretum, so through all the huge windows even on the third floor you can see an even taller tree.

This facility is first class all the way. It is a little difficult to get to, but once you're on North Post Oak, just keep heading back and then take a left. The majority of the club members are actually local, so it can be pretty busy the majority of the week, but it is still a haven in busy Houston.

Because there's a club with the hotel, be prepared for countless classes to choose from all for free. There's pilates, various types of yoga, spin and aerobics classes. There's a basketball court that's pretty dead during the day, which is fun for kids. There are actually A LOT of activities for kids and there's babysitting services that require an hourly fee for parents who want to take a fitness class or treat themselves to the spa. There are three pools and one has a slide for the kiddos and parents and guardians will be happy to know there's a lifeguard on duty at all times when the pool is open.

The full kitchen is open 24 hours a day and there's a healthy food cafe for those who want light bites (this isn't 24/7).

The place is supposed to be amazing when it comes to Christmas decorations, so I definitely want to check those out when the season arrives.

The Houstonian's entrance is like a ski lodge with a beautiful fire place. I was here for a wedding which was just lovely. The reception was intimate and beautiful. Overall this is a splendid hotel to be in.
