St. Regis Hotel, Houston

    Set on three wooded acres in the Southern mansion–filled enclave of River Oaks, the St. Regis Hotel, Houston has a residential ambience that befits its surroundings. Fresh flowers and abstract artworks decorate the 12-story property’s ground-floor lounge, where a harpist plays by a marble fireplace during afternoon tea. In the restaurant, skylights bathe a conservatory with natural light, while windows offer bucolic views of the adjacent Post Oak Park. The St. Regis’ bar has a more masculine appearance, with dark wood tones, generously sized booths, and artworks depicting images of the Old West. Guests stay in any of 232 rooms and suites, all of which feature floor-to-ceiling windows. Accommodations The 12-story property’s superior and deluxe guest rooms start at 500 square feet each, while the Presidential Suite has floor-to-ceiling views of the stunning downtown Houston skyline. Facilities Climate-controlled outdoor pool, complete spa and fitness center, and a complimentary afternoon tea, a tradition at the St. Regis, Houston. Dining The Remington Restaurant has a distinctly southern menu, and at night it turns into one of the hottest night spots in the city, with live music featured on weekends. Rates From $480 to about $5,000.
