Four Seasons Hotel Houston is located in the center of a a bustling city. The twenty-story hotel tower in downtown Houston features 392 guestrooms, in addition to twelve spacious suites. The 750,000 square feet also provide space for special events, recreation, dining, and business meetings.
The accommodations, which range in size from more-than-adequate guestrooms to expansive suites, offer fantastic views and contemporary decor. Guests will enjoy such luxuries as flat-screen TVs, marble bathtubs, and wireless Internet access. Every room comes with a slate of complimentary coffee and tea service as well as twice-daily housekeeping service and daily papers.
Unlike some luxury hotels, children are especially welcomed guests at the Four Seasons Hotel Houston. When mom and dad check into the room, the hotel staffer gives the youngster a gift called Hiding Horse. The plush animal lives up to its name. During the day when the family is exploring the nearby Museum District or wherever else they'd like, the horse will be relocated to somewhere else in the room.
The housekeepers leave a clue during turn-down time, making it a lot of fun to find where the horse is hiding. And once the kids return home, they have a reminder of their Houston vacations. If parents need a playpen or something else for their kids, they can ask at the front desk to get what they need.
Young visitors and anyone who likes to relaxation will want to spend time at the 65-foot pool. Located on the fourth floor of the Four Seasons Hotel Houston, the outdoor pool affords amazing views of some of Houston's biggest buildings. With the feel of a Caribbean resort, this place to relax includes wooden decks, live palm trees, and towering oaks. You'll also find Turkish tiles and even a wall made out of water. Even if you're not a guest, you can purchase a day pass to enjoy the pool.
On Thursday evening, a poolside happy hour features hors d'oeuvres and wine for the adult guests of the Four Seasons Houston. On Thursday, or any other time, the onsite restaurant serves tasty meals in a fine-dining atmosphere. Named Quattro, which is Italian for four, the eatery serves all three daily meals along with antipasto. The dining space has a new infusion of cool, getting rid of the stuffy white table clothes, the waiters' ties, and other old ways of doing things. You'll find dark wood tables, waiters dressed all in black, and a hip lounge.
Another addition is the enoteca menu, which is similar to idea of Spanish tapas. The menu features small appetizers and tastes designed to share. Italian wine is served in small portions, so diners can sample several during one meal if they would like. Traditional menus are still available.
The Four Seasons Houston is located closed to many other restaurants, so you can experience some of the best of Houston's dining scene without going far from your room. Many of the restaurants and shops can be reached without worrying about the weather. A system of tunnels links the hotel with many of the downtown visitor amenities.
The Park Shops, a three-level mall, also are connected to the Four Seasons Houston by a climate-controlled elevated walkway. You'll have the chance to enjoy excellent shopping without worrying about that infamous Houston humidity.
Houston's main airport is also close by, just a twenty-minute drive from door to terminal. The hotel staff can help arrange rides, including taxis and limousine service. The friendly professionals are also happy to make suggestions for things to do and places to explore in the nearby Theatre District and beyond.
