Take refuge from the hustle and bustle of America's 4th largest city at this hotel, club, and spa. Referring to the Houstonian as another luxury hotel is like referring to a rare Ferrari as just a nice car. Frequently the affluent host of outdoor weddings, this private and exclusive resort's park-like setting radiates beauty and tranquility.

In its 280 guest rooms, the Houstonian successfully creates a classically elegant look and feel without the stiffness and frump we have observed in many high-end Southern properties. Narrow floor to ceiling windows provide views of the acreage and invite in plenty of natural light and in room Keurig coffee machines are a welcome morning boost. WiFi is complimentary.

Our favorite feature is the compound's 125,000 square foot health club. Free to guests, this massive fitness facility is a hop, skip, and jump away from the hotel lobby. Inside, exercise nuts will crack with pleasure when eyeing the stellar equipment, modern facilities, and awesome lap pool. The cardio and weight nerve center is within the perimeter of the Houstonian's 1/9th mile indoor track. Twenty-two ellipticals, sixteen treadmills, fourteen upright bikes, and eight step machines stand at attention. Those in search of a strength session will benefit from the mix of 35 stack-loaded weight stations and 12 Hammer Strength free weight machines. Though you are apt to encounter "social-exercisers," the club's ample space and generous number of machines offer shelter.

Swimmers will do flip-turns over the Houstonian's outdoor lap pool. Marked with floating lines and bottom stripes, the 25-yard rectangle is a competition level pool with all the bells and whistles, except for backstroke flags.

Additional highlights of this urban paradise include: the Trellis Spa and Salon, playing privileges at the private Redstone Golf Club (home of the Shell Houston Open), and access to tennis, racquetball, and basketball courts. Who knew Houston could be so much fun?
