Hotels in Houston are reopening their doors just in time for summer vacations. And with many travelers still hesitant to book international travel, these hotel options are a great way for you to help them discover the gems in their own backyard.
Opened just last October, and reopening June 8, the C. Baldwin, Curio Collection by Hilton puts the focus on girl power, with its name honoring Charlotte Baldwin Allen, who used her inheritance to finance the City of Houston under her husband’s name. The hotel also has a female GM and showcases interiors by two high-profile design firms with women at the helm. And because we all know that travelers will be embracing the outdoors, let clients know that the hotel is located just minutes away from the 12-acre urban park Discovery Green, boasting a man-made lake.
New Normal Updates: In addition to social distancing prompts, sanitizing stations, touchless systems and flexible cancellation policies, C. Baldwin is offering tiered savings based on length of stay. hilton.com
The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa, a 27-acre wooded resort, is considered a historic gem, known for its grace, Texas elegance and unparalleled guest experience. Reopened May 18, the hotel is located in the heart of the Galleria area.
New Normal Updates: The hotel is now catering to wellness-conscious travelers with its recently introduced wellness desk, which has been created to welcome and screen guests and visitors upon arrival to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses. houstonian.com
The five-diamond The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston, the love child of Houston Rockets owner Tillman Fertitta, is embraced by 10 oak-studded acres and features a museum-worthy art collection, including a Frank Stella piece in the lobby, high-design (complete with a 2-story Rolls Royce dealership inside), and an over 30,000-bottle wine cellar. The 2-year-old hotel was lucky enough not to have to shut its doors due to COVID-19, and if your affluent clients are looking for maximum social distancing, recommend the private helipad located on its rooftop so they limit exposure to others. For additional privacy and comfort, the property’s impressive 1,500-sq.-ft. Post Oak suite offers vast spaces for in-suite entertaining, including a full kitchen and dining area as well as separate living space alongside of picturesque views of the Houston skyline. Travelers can head to the new alfresco cinema experience at “The Drive-In at Sawyer Yards” to enjoy movies from the comfort of their own car.
New Normal Updates: The Post Oak is utilizing social distancing prompts, thermal entrances, touchless systems and flexible cancellation policies. Guest services can help arrange a private luxury car rental for guests to embark on a tour of nearby street art. The postoakhotel.com
