Top 10 Hotels for Super Bowl 51
Convenient to Houston hospitals and medical schools, this practical hotel offers a notable degree of style.
Overlooking the world-famous Texas Medical Center, this hotel is frequented by visiting medical professionals and families with loved ones making use of the nearby facilities, including MD Anderson Cancer Center, Methodist Hospital, Texas Children's, Memorial Hermann, Baylor Medical and St. Lukes Episcopal. Architecturally it's quite conservative, and its subdued sand-colored exterior could almost pass for a modern hospital were it not for the bright red Marriott sign at the top.
This 26-floor hotel has an executive floor, 15 meeting rooms and air-conditioned walkways to nearby hospitals and medical schools. Guests rooms and suites have been completely redone in a clean, bright, urbane style. Basics include work desks, speaker phones, voicemail, cable TV, microwaves and fridges, and for longer stays, some accommodations come with kitchenettes. A house restaurant, Driscoll's, serves regional cuisine in a warm, attractive setting, and the fitness center is small but well-stocked, complementing the indoor pool. The Museum District is close by, as are Rice University and the pedestrian-friendly Rice Village shopping area.
