Even though the COVID-19 pandemic appears to finally be winding down and travel restrictions are starting to be lifted, many people are still opting for a staycation rather than a vacation. If you are one of the many who prefer a staycation at the moment, we at Proguard are ready to help. Since Houston has plenty of great hotels from which to choose for a staycation, knowing which one will give you the relaxing experience you desire can be a difficult decision for you and your family. To make sure you spend less time trying to pick a hotel and more time having fun, here are our top five Houston hotels you should keep in mind for your next staycation.
Hotel Granduca Houston
Should you want to stay at a hotel where everything you need is at your fingertips, we highly recommend the Hotel Granduca Houston. A hotel that will let you get away from the usual spots where many tourists tend to stay, the Hotel Granduca Houston offers such amenities as free Wi-Fi, a large outdoor pool, garden terrace and cabana area, and even a hot tub. As for your room, expect to find a fully-equipped kitchen, mini-bar, plenty of comfortable seating, and a large flat-screen television. Also, the hotel is known for serving exquisite Italian cuisine, so give it a try.
Hotel Derek Houston Galleria
If you want to have a staycation where you can still get a bit of work done along the way, we suggest you book a room at the Hotel Derek Houston Galleria. Once you get settled in, you can spend some time at the work desk in your room, fix some coffee at your room’s state-of-the-art coffee machine, or even get your cup of coffee from the on-site Starbucks. But once you’re ready to relax, take a dip in the outdoor pool, sit back and select one of the many satellite TV channels to catch your favorite show, or simply enjoy the amazing view from your balcony. If you want, you can take a short walk to the Galleria Mall or Water Wall, where you can have even more fun.
The Lancaster Hotel
Often considered to be the highest-rated hotel in all of Houston, we here at Proguard absolutely love the Lancaster Hotel.
