While most hotels in the city are designed to accommodate business travelers’ every need, if you’re looking for where to stay in Houston, there are options for visitors interested in art, history, shopping, or simply a charming experience.

La Colombe d’or has just five rooms and a handful of villas. Formerly the domicile of an oil wildcatter, it’s modernized but still designed to make guests feel they are staying in the lavish home of a wealthy relative—one with a very impressive art collection. With all the splash its name implies, Hotel ZaZa has an unbeatable location in the Museum District, and a trendy after-hours scene to match. Closer to the city’s Energy Corridor, Hotel Sorella is an elegant boutique hotel in the heart of Citycentre, a well-planned mixed-use development where one could spend an entire weekend without running out of things to do. Downtown, the historic, boutique Hotel Icon is popular.

Most of the best hotels in Houston are concentrated either downtown or a 15-minute drive to the west, near the Galleria shopping mall. If you are headed to the city on a leisure trip, remember that Houston hotels, especially those catering primarily to business travelers, often have good weekend deals.
