Hidden on the fourth floor, away from the pandemonium of the city traffic, is Four Seasons Hotel Houston’s refreshing pool. Completely redone just a few years ago, this pool area is one of the best parts of the hotel. The Brazilian ipê wood decking, which is environmentally friendly, enrobes an oval pool surrounded by plush chaise lounges and sun beds. A trip to Houston in the summer elicits the most pool-centric days you’ll find and basking in the hot Texas sun alongside this outdoor pool is gets hot pretty darn quickly.
After a hunger-inducing dip in the pool, order up some grub from the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel's bar, which features its own pool menu complete with those irresistible fun cocktails. With some of the rooms opening up to the pool deck, the outdoor area becomes sort of a hangout, whether it’s a sweltering hot day or a cool evening with a brisk breeze.
The Turkish travertine tile, wood trellises and oversized umbrellas make this an urban oasis. With the sound of the trickling water wall, you can’t help but be relaxed as you sip on your delicious tropical drink and nibble on shrimp cocktail. If that’s not enough, take the plunge into the soothing hot tub in the evening or light up the fire pit to set the mood.
