On this trip I chose to stay at The Post Oak Hotel in the heart of uptown Houston. The Post Oak Hotel is the only Texas Forbes Five-Star Hotel and Spa and Houston’s only AAA Five-Diamond hotel. The 38 story tower has 250 oversized modern guestrooms and suites with 20 executive residences. There’s a two-story Rolls-Royce showroom and onsite Bentley and Bugatti dealerships.
One of my favorite spots at The Post Oak Hotel is the outdoor heated pool, a true tropical oasis. The pool area is amazing, surrounded by a stunning fire pit, cozy modern chaise lounges, in-water recliners, a waterfall spilling from the hot tub, and dedicated pool staff serving up the most flavorful food and cocktails.
Another favorite spot at The Post Oak Hotel is the Bloom & Bee with their extravagantly gorgeous blooms and cocktails that taste like spring in a glass.
