Just like its namesake, The Sam Houston Hotel offers historical significance and is a keystone in the downtown area. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places and has stood in its current spot since the early 20th century. The interior is modern, yet retains a historic air, and is in an excellent location for exploring the city's landmarks -- Minute Maid Park (home to the local baseball team, Houston Astros), the aquarium, the theatre district, and University are all within a 10-minute walk. There is also a complimentary shuttle service within three miles.
On-site, there's the *17 restaurant, where a continental breakfast is served each morning. Lunch and dinner is an all-American affair, with ribs, steak and 'honey lacquer' chicken. After dinner, pop into The Sam Bar for a cognac or cocktail. Bar snacks are also available.
All of the guest rooms and suites were redesigned in 2013 and feature free Wi-Fi, a Keurig coffee maker and views of downtown. Upgrade to a Suite for more space and a pull-out sofa in the living room area.

“The location is great, just
2 blocks from the ballpark and Main Street” -- Frommer’s
“The hotel's restaurant, 17,
is just as modern and attracts a hip international crowd of epicures hungry for
