Houston is as diverse as it is colossal. The energy capital of the world is the hub of cutting edge with skyscrapers and boundary-pushing industries, but also home to quirky shops and boho-vibe neighborhoods with bungalows. Visit one of the many shopping meccas, food halls, or art institutions, or go beyond downtown to tour the famous Space Center. The largest city in the Lone Star State (and the fourth largest in the U.S.) has seemingly no end of options.

Where to Stay in Houston

Downtown

Whether you’re catching a theater matinee, ogling city views along the Buffalo Bayou, or cheering at a game with the ‘Stros, downtown is the pulsing nucleus of Houston’s sprawl. Club Quarters Houston sits squarely in the hub, within convenient walking distance to the Theater District, green spaces, museums, and nightlife.

Besides the finger-licking signature Viet-Cajun crawfish, this Asiatown favorite dishes up wok-fried seafood, pho, and rice dishes.

Hugo’s

1600 Westheimer Road

Consistently named one of the best restaurants in Houston, Hugo’s highlights the nuance and complexity of regional Mexican cuisine with dishes such as marinated lamb roasted in agave leaves and pan-fried potato tacos. Not to be forgotten: a robust menu of margaritas and classic cocktails.
