An iconic boutique hotel in the central business district, with a complimentary shuttle to downtown sights
Looking for a quiet corner in Houston? The Whitehall may be in the heart of the fourth-largest American city’s bustling business district, but it doesn’t feel that way in your peaceful guest room. Expect a Sotherly's Private Label Signature Beautyrest mattress, to help you unwind. When it’s snack time, get a taste of Tex-Mex and Southern flavors at Edgar's Hermano, one of three property eateries; you can also take advantage of the fitness center with PRECOR equipment, or page through some light reading by the pool.
And when you’re ready to explore, taking on the big city is as effortless as lounging on the hotel’s sun deck, since some of the top local sights are a short walk or drive from The Whitehall’s front door. Catch a ball game at Minute Maid Park, or admire masterpieces at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Splash cash at the Galleria, too, newly home to a Saks Fifth Avenue outpost, less than 15 minutes by car. Everything may be bigger in Texas, but true to its laid-back approach, The Whitehall puts this sprawling metropolis' greatest hits at your fingertips.
The Whitehall accommodations are set up to keep you connected to goings-on in the world outside, each with a flat-screen cable HDTV, as well as complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi. But they’re also peaceful retreats, with sweet little details to make you feel at home – literally so, in the case of the complimentary Southern Delights cookies.
Along with room-service options, the Whitehall dining scene includes three eating or drinking spots. The main restaurant is Edgar's Hermano, where Tex-Mex fare meets that of the south in dishes like pork chicharrón and cotija cheese, as well as drinks like the signature Edgar's Truth bourbon. This eatery opens for three meals a day, but you can change it up with a cup of JAVA PURA coffee and a light bite at Buffalo Bayou, open early morning till early evening, or a creative sip at Part & Parcel.
The fourth largest city in the nation, Houston offers up shopping, dining, museums, theater and sports the only way Texas knows how – in the spirit of "go big or go home." It’s second only to New York City in theater seats, so the arts-and-culture scene is a must. And the dining and nightlife? Exceptional. Your only difficult decision will be what to do first, because the Whitehall puts you in the middle of it all.Don’t forget to check out iconic attractions like the Johnson Space Center, the Galleria, with its 375 stores and ice rink, the famous Livestock Show and Rodeo and the Williams Tower Water Wall – all within easy reach of your accommodations.
