It happens to everyone – somewhere between work deadlines, school drop offs, and grocery store runs, the relationship with your partner takes a back seat. It’s frustrating for both parties when life gets in the way of spending intentional, quality time with the person you care for most. Fortunately, there’s nothing like a little TLC and a romantic getaway to revive the passion and connection between you and your better half. These Houston Hotels have something special to offer no rekindle your romance.
Art and romance go hand in hand at the Lancaster. Located in the heart of downtown Houston's Theater District, this boutique hotel feels like the start of a love story the moment you walk through the door. The understated elegance of the décor serves as a perfect backdrop to feature a stunningly curated art collection which consists of over 200 pieces of Contemporary art by artists with strong ties to Texas. A stroll through these visual treasures with your sweetheart is a perfect way to start a night on the town. Catch a performance at the Alley Theatre or Jones Hall which are less than a block away from the hotel.
Four Seasons Hotel Houston
Don’t want to leave the hotel grounds? The Four Seasons is the perfect destination for a one stop romantic escape. Start your date night with a Bourbon tasting downstairs at Bayou & Bottle where each bartender is a Certified Bourbon Steward skilled at navigating the diverse flavor profiles of the spirit. In between drinks, guests can take a swing on the virtual fairway at the first-ever Topgolf® Swing Suites. Need a little more time with your love? Spend the next day at the pool and relax under a cabana or book a massage at the spa.
The Westin Houston Medical Center/Museum District
Just because you’re looking to spoil your loved one, doesn’t mean you need to break the bank. Hotels like the Westin Houston Medical Center understand that love shouldn’t cost a fortune. Book their Sweetheart’s Escape package and enjoy everything you need for a memorable stay: $50 meal credit at Terrace 54 Bar + Table and a Crafted Delight welcome amenity. If you change your mind and decide to splurge, this hotel is only a 10-minute drive from NRG Stadium, where you can catch an NFL game or concert.
For some, food is more than substance, it’s a love language. The C. Baldwin is the perfect place to take your lover if the way to their heart is through their stomach. Book a reservation at Rosalie Italian Soul where the comfort of old-world Italian traditions meets bold, innovative flavors designed to make your inner Anthony Bourdain come to life. Don’t forget to try a sip of their Amaro or Fernet after such a robust meal.
There’s something about getting dressed in a tuxedo or an evening gown that always seems to guarantee that a special evening is about to unfold. If your date loves a shaken martini and a lot of luxury, take them to Hotel ICON for an unforgettable weekend. Housed in what once was the Union National Bank of Houston, Hotel Icon still prominently features the bank's original vault in the main lobby which only adds to the mystery and glamour of the ambiance. Since you’re all dressed for night out, reserve a few tickets at the Houston Symphony for a truly sophisticated weekend.

This is Texas' only Forbes Five-Star Spa!
