As an international port city, Houston attracts guests for both business events and hard-earned pleasure activities.  Considering the city’s extreme sprawl of over 600-square miles, location is vital when choosing the perfect place for a family stay.  

 
Despite living in Houston, our family routinely visits The Houstonian for weekend getaways and extended staycations.  The hotel boasts three gorgeous swimming pools (including a slide integrated into a rock wall and a baby pool), rock climbing, and tennis.  The Houston Arboretum and Nature Center and Memorial Park are a short 15-minute walk away.  Starts at $179/night.

KidTripster Tip:  The Houstonian offers a kids’ "Camp Out” special, a perfect alternative to Houston’s summertime mosquito blues.  Kids receive a play tent with lanterns, glow-in-the dark stars, stuffed raccoons, and sleeping bags.  Have a free dinner off the Campfire Menu and enjoy s’mores and milk for dessert!  Starts at $379/night.
