Housed in what was originally the corporate headquarters for Shell Oil Company, the landmark Magnolia Hotel Houston has history to spare. With an awesome downtown location, guests will find themselves within 10 minutes' walking distance to Minute Maid Park, the Houston Ballet, Verizon Wireless Theater and tons of restaurants, bars and boutiques.
Rooms are big, stylish and super comfortable, with chic marble bathrooms equipped with soaker tubs and huge showers. Freebies abound: Wi-Fi, hot breakfast, shoe shines, evening reception, and bedtime milk and cookies, which kids get a kick out of.
It's the kind of property at which some guests will expect a spa and be disappointed when there isn't one; however, the rooftop pool is beautiful, with amazing views of the city, and a 24-hour fitness center has modern equipment.
