Looking for one of the most historic hotels in Texas? Check out the Magnolia Hotel in Houston. The 23-story space was erected in 1923 and boasts beautiful views of the Christ Church Cathedral. Be sure to take the elevator up to the top floor where you can view the entire city from the open-air roof deck.

One of the best hotels in Texas, Hotel Zaza is feels like a French-Mediterranean villa. With marble baths, crystal chandeliers and African prints, the hotel drips with sophistication.

From a relaxing spa to the general store to a restaurant and salon, the resort has it all. And the championship golf course is not to be forgotten, of course.

Unpretentious oasis on Lady Bird Lake; public spaces are distinctly Southwestern (a hide-covered sofa and the like).
