One of Houston’s historic gems, this 27-acre wooded resort in the heart of the Galleria area is known for its grace, Texas elegance and unparalleled guest experience. Scenic, floor-to-ceiling wooded views, gracious décor and complimentary access to the most prestigious health club in Houston brings guests to the The Houstonian Hotel, Club and Spa again and again.
Guests may enjoy four, on-site restaurants, including TRIBUTE, serving “food Houstonians love to eat,” inspired by Texas, Louisiana and Mexico, and the historic Manor House estate restaurant, the former home of President and Mrs. George H. W. Bush. The Great Room Lobby Bar features rich décor and a sophisticated vibe with classic cocktails and an extensive wine list directed by the property’s sommelier. This is the perfect place to relax for a cocktail or a bite by its dramatic 30-foot, stone fireplace.
The Houstonian features plenty of outdoor options within its cozy, yet secluded campus, adjacent to the iconic Memorial Park, where guests can take advantage of picnic areas, playgrounds, cycling, a 3-mile jogging trail and a 600-acre golf course. The Houston Arboretum and Nature Center is west of the park and is a 155-acre urban nature sanctuary with nature trails, ponds and habitats.
Ideal for the fitness focused traveler, overnight guests have complimentary access to the Houstonian Club, ranked by Fitness Magazine as one of the Top 5 Fitness Centers in the U.S. The exclusive 175,000 square-foot private club features deluxe locker rooms, indoor and outdoor jogging tracks, indoor and outdoor tennis and padel courts, an indoor basketball court and over 250 fitness classes per week. A temperature–controlled resort pool with a rock slide, athletic lap pool, and garden pool are open seasonally, along with the property’s new poolside restaurant and bar called The Kitchen and Arbor Grill poolside dining complex, complete with big screen TV’s, outdoor decks and a fire pit. Refuel in the Rotunda offers healthy grab-and-go options at the Houstonian Club.
At 26,500 square feet, the new Trellis Spa at The Houstonian is now the largest luxury spa in the state of Texas. From the outside, it resembles a magnificent European Villa with statuesque architecture and luscious gardens. On the inside, soothing, nature-inspired hues complement a grand, light-filled reception and hallway, leading to all-new redesigned, sophisticated interiors where guests may enjoy hours of undisturbed relaxation. Trellis offers a new outdoor Soaking Pools and Garden experience with open-air cabanas, a scenic treetop dining room, renovated treatment rooms, indoor Reflection Pool, and tranquil lounging areas. The Houstonian also opened Sage ‘n’ Bloom Floral Studio at The Houstonian in July 2020, providing bespoke floral services for weddings and celebrations, client experiences, and corporate installations.
