Get poolside in style at Four Seasons and Omni Houston
The Across-Town Vacation
Gas prices. Over-enthusiatic TSA screeners. Swine flu. There’s plenty of reasons a weekend getaway might be more trouble than it’s worth. To the rescue: the Omni Houston Hotel and Four Seasons Houston, who are opening up their swank poolscapes for us Houstonians in need of a bit of sun and relaxation. The only reminder you’re still in Houston? Looking out at the skyline. And the tariff? A measly $20 spot.
Every Sunday from noon to six the party is on at the Omni’s new pool. Weekly drink specials, a full bar and a DJ spinning tunes keep the energy up, or you could always indulge yourself with a nosh from the poolside grill or a special poolside Mokara spa treatment. Want to make a weekend of it? Book a room for Saturday night (starting at $149, just mention the Sundaycation package) and get two deluxe lounge chairs reserved, a $50 food and bev tab and a late 6 pm checkout on Sunday. For the premiere Sundaycation on May 17, check out a swim fashion show sponsored by Ed Hardy and Juliet & Romeo Couture.
Four Seasons' “My Pool’s Better Than Your Pool” Pass
Sure, you could just hang out by your pool. But the last time I checked, my pool didn’t have attendants offering complimentary frozen fruit and Evian spritzes, a fire pit, a relaxing hot tub, a soothing water wall, and a day bed/lounge big enough for 15. Did I mention the Four Seasons has poured $4 million into making this the ultimate haven-away-from-Houston? And with poolside spa treatments and grill and tapas menus, you’ll never want to leave. Luckily, these pool passes are good all weekend (Fridays 12-8 pm, Sat-Sun 10 am-8 pm), or you can always book a room (starting at $205) and crash.
