Houston is the fourth-largest city in the United States of America and the largest city within the state of Texas, where it is located at the east border. Being the cultural and economical centre of the US Gulf Coast, it provides for a large number of hotels, many of which are located in Houston’s beautiful historic centre. While staying in Houston, we recommend you to visit the open-air museum in Sam Houston Park.
There you will learn quite something about Texan culture. The Houston hotels are surmounted by the highest building in town, the Chase Tower. The view over the city from the 75th floor is tremendous.
Not far from the Houston hotels you will be able to visit the high-class shows in the “Alley Theatre” or a concert of the Houston Symphony Orchestra. And you will easily reach “Katy Mills”, where you can go for an entertaining shopping spree in one of its 100 shops. We also recommend you to visit a baseball game in Bayou Place. If you are staying in a Houston hotel in February, you should make sure not to miss the world’s greatest rodeo in the Astrodome stadium.
