Built in 1923 for one of the founders of what would later become Exxon, the landmark Fondren Mansion was saved from the wrecking ball and re-purposed as a luxury hotel in 1981 by Steve Zimmerman. More than 30 years later and fresh from a recent face-lift, La Colombe d’Or Hotel continues to attract an international clientele enamored with its unique ambiance. Five, expansive mansion suites are filled with original art and antiques, and nine, residential-style villas surround a lush patio in an adjacent building.
This three-story urban bed and breakfast is one of Midtown’s best-kept secrets. A little slice of Europe in the heart of the city, La Maison is only a stone's throw away from several of Houston’s finest restaurants, clubs, and shops. Enjoy high tea in the parlor each afternoon as part of the amenities.
A great alternative to the average chain hotel, this four-story bed and breakfast is both cozy and charming. Perks include organic and vegan eats, artists' works on walls, and panoramic views of the city.
