Houston Vacations

Houston epitomizes the Texas way of life. With a super-sized cityscape that celebrates cowboy culture, Latin American history, the performing arts, and Texas-sized appetites, Houston is clearly both big and bold. Dine on slow-cooked barbecue and savory Tex Mex cuisine between museum hopping, theater performances, and more. Among all the hustle, bustle, and sprawling neighborhoods, Houston stays true to its historic nickname, The Big Heart. Vacations in Houston are always brimming with easygoing hospitality and Southern charm. Book Houston package deals and see the galaxy from the Space Center, or find a cozy coffee shop downtown and watch the city whirl by.

Top Houston Hotels

Houston is all about hospitality, so finding a warm welcome and a lovely hotel to mix and match with your ideal flights is easy as pecan pie. Consider these guest favorites as you book:

  • Hilton Americas – Houston: Whether you’re flying in for a business conference at George R. Brown Convention Center or a spa getaway seasoned with Southwestern barbecue sauce, this Hilton hotel is a fabulous option. Stay within walking distance to all of downtown’s most popular attractions and pamper yourself with facials and massages at the full-service spa.
  • Magnolia Hotel Houston: Located on the north side of downtown, this vintage hotel is a stunner. From guest rooms to suites with fully equipped kitchens, the Magnolia will make you feel right at home. Like Houston, each room is presented with a seamless mix of nostalgic and contemporary décor. Whip up your own take on Tex Mex tacos in your vacation kitchen, dine at the hotel restaurant, or order up room service.
  • Hyatt Regency Houston: This elegant Hyatt Regency captures the dynamism of its Central Business District location with unique contemporary design, a business center, and meeting room options. Don’t let all work and no play turn your Houston visit dull, though. Enjoy a drink by the poolside bar and abscond for some sightseeing and a performance at Theater Under the Stars.
  • Wyndham Houston - Medical Center Hotel and Suites: If we could describe this Wyndham hotel in a word, it would have to be “chic.” Simple and sophisticated rooms are the perfect home base for your whirlwind adventures at the nearby Houston Zoo and Houston Maritime Museum. When you’re in for the night—or morning—order in room service and stay connected with complimentary wireless internet.

A City of Neighborhoods

Yes, you’re thinking, Houston’s a grand, sprawling place. But did you know it’s a city of unique neighborhoods and districts that delight travelers and locals alike? As you plan your Houston vacations, stay near your favorite landmarks, but don’t stop there—explore Space City. The aptly named Museum District is just one of the city’s cultural hubs and home to the nationally recognized Children's Museum of Houston as well as the Houston Museum of Natural Science, which houses an IMAX Theater, planetarium, and butterfly center.

Mix up museum hopping with visits to the tennis courts, pool, and winter ice rink at Memorial Park in River Oaks and Discovery Green Park downtown. While you’re downtown, see the Houston premiere of a new play in the Theater District, which has one of the highest numbers of theater seats per capita in the United States. These seats are in high demand, though, so get your tickets as soon as you set the dates for your vacation package in Houston, TX.

Festivals and Events

A full calendar of festivals and events are perks of Houston's larger-than-life presence…and many events are free to join. If you want to plan a cheap vacation in Houston, keep these city celebrations in mind. Getting away at the end of February or the beginning of March? Bring your appetite for the World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest. While it's not the only barbecue fest in the Houston annual calendar, it is one of the largest, spanning three days. Prefer spanakopita over a slab of pork? Join the international revelry of The Original Greek Festival in May and October.

With warm weather and plenty of space for visitors, Houston is a year-round vacation destination with both sass and class. Save time and money for new experiences when you mix and match flights and hotels in Travelocity’s vacation packages in Houston.

Houston is a marvelous place, with approximately 596 accommodations to choose from. Reserve your accommodation as soon as you like via Travelocity's Houston hotels guide.

If you and your family are looking for a high-end haven, you could stay at the St. Regis Houston or the Hotel Granduca Houston. If those don't suit your tastes or budget, maybe you'll prefer the Four Seasons Hotel Houston, at 1300 Lamar St, or the Hotel ZaZa Houston, at 5701 Main Street.

You are sure to visit the Johnson Space Center - NASA while in Houston. Why not stay at a nearby hotel? The Staybridge Suites Houston-Nasa/Clear Lake is located 2 miles (3 kilometers) away, and the SpringHill Suites by Marriott Houston NASA/Webster is 3 miles (5 kilometers) away.
