If you’re heading out to cool off in the Houston heat at The Houstonian Hotel, Club and Spa’s outdoor pools, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that there are three pools among 18 wooded acres with various amenities. Head to the Sports Pool, where you can swim some laps, or to the resort pool which features a waterfall, sunning shelf and small baby pool. This pool is also where you’ll find exercise classes taking place, if a great workout is part of what you're looking for during your stay at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel. Kids will also love the 32-foot waterslide. You’ll find plush lounge chairs to relax on after a swim or to soak up the sun.
If you’re looking for a quieter scene, head to the Garden Pool, where you’ll find a more serene setting with warm water, plush chaise lounge chairs, and a lap swim lane. The gazebo by the pool complex is open seasonally and offers a seasonal menu should you want a snack. If you’re in need of suntan lotion, you can just ask one of the staff members who are on guard outside, and they’ll help you out. You’ll also find water stations to stay hydrated out in the Houston heat.
