The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa

Houston's ultimate urban retreat
Home to one of the ritziest health clubs in Houston, The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa has it all — from countless kids’ activities and fitness classes to authentic Texan décor and luxurious guest rooms. Settled on 27 acres just a few minutes from the Bayou City’s 610 Loop, The Houstonian is the ultimate urban retreat. 

As a guest, you’ll have access to the 175,000-square-foot health club, three pools, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa and an inviting restaurant. The guest rooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows, revealing views of the densely wooded acreage, which complement the warm décor. Kids will have a blast on the playground, while parents can unwind with a massage at Trellis Spa.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • We can’t even compare your average hotel gym to the fitness center at The Houstonian. As a private club for much of the city of Houston, it offers a 175,000-square-foot fitness wonderland and is consistently ranked as one the top facilites in the nation.
  • Just steps from the lobby is the hotel’s Trellis Spa. With 21 treatment rooms and a full salon, it's the largest luxury spa in the state.
  • From the rustic fireplace in the lobby to the mahogany-accented walls, the décor pays homage to all things Texan. While at first the lobby atrium of this luxury hotel feels a bit like a hunting lodge, you’ll quickly appreciate the easy elegance in the overstuffed sofas and the regal staircase.
  • It’s hard to beat the Houston heat without taking a dip in the pool. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel takes advantage of the lush, wooded surroundings by featuring not one but three pristine outdoor options: a top-notch lap pool complete with anti-wave lane lines, a resort pool boasting a 32-foot slide through the rock-scape and a tranquil therapeutic garden pool.
  • Hidden from the hectic life of the country’s fourth-largest city, The Houstonian certainly feels like it is in a remote location. That’s the beauty of this resort; it feels a million miles away, but in reality you are less than a mile from the 610 Loop, minutes from the shopping mecca The Galleria and a short drive from Houston’s financial district.
Things to Know
  • Set among an expansive, secluded wooded property, the hotel provides plenty of outdoor pursuits, including hiking, a running track and three glistening pools.
  • Be sure to schedule a session at the Houstonian Club fitness center. You can really spend a full day here making use of all the workout classes, sports courts, personal training offerings, restaurants and more with no resort fee.
  • The hotel is not too far from The Galleria shopping mall and neighborhoods teeming with dining, entertainment and shopping. Make use of the hotel’s complimentary shuttle that can take you to various places nearby by calling the front desk or stopping by the concierge desk to get the schedule and make an appointment.
The Rooms
  • The newly renovated guest rooms at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa are light-filled and spacious. The elegant interior design features a palette of blues, creams and gold with crown molding and floor-to-ceiling windows.
  • When we stayed, our room looked out to the woods, offering a scenic vista and privacy. 
  • You’ll find a plush bed, a flat-screen TV, a wireless Qi power charging cube, a mini-fridge, a Keurig coffee maker, a desk, complimentary Wi-Fi as well as plump sofas and chair and ottoman combinations. Slip into a luxurious microfiber robe lined with terry velour and slippers.
  • The expanded bathrooms come with wood flooring, brushed nickel fixtures, in-mirror lighting, granite vanities and marble walk-in showers with soaker shower heads and Bulgari amenities.
  • At the end of the day, sink to the king-sized pillows and cool gel-top mattress with crisp cotton/modal sheeting — a moisture-wicking blend for a better night's sleep.
The Look
  • The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa defines Texas elegance, with a luxurious lodge-like setting. Set within 27 acres of woods, the hotel is secluded  — definitely not what you might expect to find in Houston.
  • Inside the lobby, the warm colors of the furnishings, high ceilings, plentiful wood accents and a large stone fireplace at the center of the sitting area create a rustic and welcoming environment with a country-club-like feel.
  • Sleek hardwood floors, paneled walls and dark, rich rugs and carpeting give the public areas of the Houston hotel a warm and woodsy feeling.
