In the heart of the downtown neighborhood, near the Bayou City’s business district, sits Four Seasons Hotel Houston. The rustic brown brick building soars above the street with its 30-storeys, overlooking the bustling oil-centric city. At 1300 Lamar St., this Four-Star hotel is near the home of the Houston Astros and Minute Maid Park. It’s also in walking distance of many of the city’s biggest companies.
Though the exterior isn’t stylish, the Southern charm and elegance of the staff overwhelms you with hospitality — so much so that you’ll completely forget about the dated exterior. The old school décor in the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel's lobby and the grand staircase that looks as if it leads all the way to the sky have the elegance of a 1980s mansion.
Just 30 minutes from the two Houston airports, Bush Intercontinental and Houston Hobby, Four Seasons Houston is easily accessible. Just keep in mind that what is a lively business district during the day pretty much shuts down in the evening. So if you are looking for a hotel surrounded by a busy nightlife, this isn’t it.
