Retreat to a luxurious oasis at the Omni Houston Hotel, tucked away amidst the trees alongside Buffalo Bayou and near the heart of Houston’s Uptown.
Hidden back in an unexpected lush green forest, nearby the passing Buffalo Bayou below, the Omni Houston Hotel is at once both a total escape from the bustle of Uptown and a luxurious city hotel near all of the action.
After turning in at the big red Omni entrance sign on Woodway, you’ll wind your way past office buildings to the hotel’s beautifully landscaped grounds. Surrounded by greenspace and the trees alongside the bayou – out of sight below – the commotion of Woodway, the 610 Loop, and everything else suddenly becomes impossibly distant.
As you enter the hotel, the large open lobby welcomes you with cool, crisp air and a classic, luxurious décor, featuring lush plants and modern art. Beyond the seating and dining areas, you can easily spy a view of the lush hotel grounds and modern pool through large picture windows.
The four-diamond hotel boasts 378 guest rooms, including 33 luxurious suites, which have all been recently refurbished. Rooms offer striking city or pool views. Guests overlooking the city with the stretch of forest that lies below, will particularly appreciate the Omni Houston Hotel’s uncommon mixture of respite from and access to Houston’s bustle.
The resort-style pool itself (pictured above) features a modern, welcoming design. Surrounded by greenery, water features, and multiple levels for relaxing in the sun, it’s one of the Omni’s showpiece features – and a sharp contrast from the swimming pools found at other city hotels.
Food and Drink
You’ll find both hotel guests and Houston locals dining at the NOÉ Grill. While the food there is sourced from local farmers, growers, artisans and fishermen within a 500-mile radius, the dishes themselves are globally inspired and feature Pan Asian undertones.
On Friday and Saturday night, the Black Swan nightclub also draws in the locals for dancing and cocktails.
