I'm going to Houston later this month with my wife and 2 small kids. Can anyone recommend a nice hotel (appropriate for families), preferably within walking distance to Jones Plaza? Thanks!
Very true. . . the Resort at the country club has a great pool for the kids and you can always get in a couple rounds of golf on the Gary Player course! When are you going down to Houston?Do you absolutely have to stay in downtown? There is a resort out in the woodlands and also many nice hotels out in the Galleria area. Unless you absolutly don't mind being abandoned in DT Houston after hours as Toad says, you will want a car. The only after hours kid thing to do in DT is the over priced (in my opinion) aquarium. There is ample parking around Jones Hall at almost anytime, so a car here is not a problem.
Woodlands is pretty far out, the Galleria area is probably a better choice if you want to avoid long drives. Lots of stuff to do in the Galleria area as well.Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm going on March 29th for a persian new year festival. I guess I thought it would be nice to be able to walk to it, but if you all would suggest something further out that would be more fun for the kids, it might be worth a drive. How far out is the Woodlands and where would you recommend?
