The Houstonian Hotel was founded in 1980 by a wealthy Houston entrepreneur and became more widely known as ‘west White House’ for President George H. W. Bush. Situated in an 18-acre wooded campus along Buffalo Bayou, the hotel is famous for its health club, spa, restaurants, conference center, and “Texas estate” architecture.
The Sam Houston Hotel opened in 1924 and now resides on the National Register of Historic Places. A few blocks from the downtown theater district, it nods to history while offering all the modern conveniences. Its public spaces, including the rooftop event space Veranda and The Pearl restaurant, are famous for exceptional service.
