Iconic Houston Hotel Named Best Resort by Travel + Leisure in Texas

The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa reigns as the queen of Texas resorts.

A new ranking of Travel + Leisure ranks The Houstonian #1 in the Top 10 Resort Hotels in Texas. The other Houston-area property on the list, The Woodlands Resort, lands at No. 5.

“Built in 1980, this Houston grand dame has long been popular with outsiders and locals alike, who visit this stately property for its award-winning spa, wooded grounds, and tasteful rooms.” Travel + Leisure said of The Houstonian.

Travel + Leisure notes that the 27-acre resort recently completed the first phase of a $23.5 million renovation of its club spaces, unveiling five studio apartments and the renovated basketball court. But it’s the staff and their hospitality that have really won customers over, the publication says.

Steve Fronterhouse, general manager of the 289-room hotel, hails the Houstonian’s staff as “the most passionate hospitality providers in the state.”

“We are an independent property in a portfolio of one,” Fronterhouse told CultureMap. “Everything we create here is attributable to the team at 111 North Post Oak Lane, which means our ideas for menus, food and the entire resort experience are authentic and presented in a distinctive way.”

“The Houstonian has his own personality,” he adds. “We are proud that our property bears the name of this city and feel it is our duty to represent the cultures and tastes here. From our wine list to new room decor, we want to show the world what Texas luxury looks like.
