Help locating efficiency motel/hotel

by roserobert

My husband and I will be travelling to Houston, Texas to the MD Anderson Cancer center for his consult and treatments. We're looking for the most economical housing close to the center. We live on the coast of North Carolina and will be responsible for flights, housing, food, car rentals, etc. Can someone help me out! I know absolutely NOTHING about Texas!

RE: Help locating efficiency motel/hotel

by mccalpin

MD Anderson is located in the large medical complex just south of Hermann Park on the southwest side of Houston. There are a number of hotels in this immediate area, well, some of them are actually part of the complex, having indoor connections (I don't know about MD Anderson since I've stayed in another part of the complex).

If you haven't already, look at http://www.mdanderson.org/patients_public/international/display.cfm?id=DC30E84F-7545-11D4-AEC300508BDCCE3A&method=displayFull and note that MD Anderson has its own travel agency that has access to discounts at the local hotels. Do read the "Frequently Asked Questions" because I think the answers will be instructive.

I don't know how long you plan on being in the area, which makes a huge difference on your housing, but if you look for an apartment very close to the Medical Center, I'd look in the area to the west, near Rice University. This is a very nice neighborhood that must(?) have some cheaper accommodations because of the students.

However, note that Houston, partially because of no zoning laws - goes from from very nice to seedy neighborhoods rather abruptly, without a lot of rhyme or reason.

You will have to have a rent car in Houston. Although the light rail system does go right through the medical district, it doesn't go very many places in Houston. Check out the system maps before committing yourself to public transportation.

The closer airport is Hobby, but you may find it easier to come into Bush on the north side of Houston - see the FAQ page on the MD Anderson website.

Well, that's a start....

i will look for you. i know of some places on 290 near pinemont and near i 45 and 1960. but may be able to find a place closer for you that is not in or next to a gettoo or slum . there is a campground in or near pearland that has become famous as a place to stay while having treatments at the medical center. they might have an rv or trailer that you can rent.
if you post in the pearland forum for more information someone may be able to give you more information.

Travel Tips for Houston

Texas Rennaisance Festival

by jjp76

The Texas Rennaisance Festival takes place on weekends every year from mid October to mid November.

Travel back in time on the festival grounds in a forested area in the small town of Plantersville, which is about 50 miles north of Houston.

This is the nation's "largest, most acclaimed renaissance theme park where the sights, sounds, tastes and beauty of the 16th Century come alive!" according to those running the festival. Many guests would certainly agree.

The festival offers plenty of food, beer, and merchandise ranging from clothes to art to swords. There is also plenty of entertainment, ranging from jousts to dancing to just plain people watching. The festival workers aren't the only ones dressed up; many visitors dress up in Renaissance or Medieval style clothing as well.

This is surely someting you won't want to miss if you're going to be in the area during the time the festival takes place.

riding around the land

Just in general, the favorite mode of transportation is the petrol-guzzling SUV. A common sight, it is commonly associated with Texas, and in particular Houstonians. But anyhow, cars are an absolutely necessity in getting around. Public transportation here is rather limited so i would advice getting a car by renting. Always looking at ways to reduce the heavy traffics that plague the highways, Houston officials havve the HOV lane which is only open during peak hours of office. This lane is only available to cars with more than one passenger i believe. I wouldn't advice using it unless you know where it takes you. Unfortunately, because there are always accidents involving big humongous trucks and trailers, traffic jam can become really often as it involves a laborious process that involves a lot of parties due to litigation issues... also, if you're coming from an European or Asian country, be aware that Americans, particularly Houstonians learn to drive at the age of 15. No offense to my age group, but we can be pretty dangerous on the roads.. so try and watch out.. otherwide, enjoy yourself travelling along the roads of Houston!

Texas Steak Just the Way it Should Be!

by msbrandysue about Saltgrass Steakhouse

When Saltgrass first started expanding their franchises I hated steak. Yea, yea, I wasn't even a teenager though. So I started with the kids menu and have worked myself up to the best steak in the place.

The restaurant is authentic country Texas. The decor ranges from televisions with the game on, deer heads, bear heads, license plates and other country decor. They have a full bar and eating area. The tables are covered in white linens and the waitors wear tuxedo shirts and long white aprons.

I recently went here for my birthday lunch and was surprised to have been given a black napkin and silverware. I think the waitress saw the confusion on my face and said that I was given the black one because my dress pants were black and it was to protect them. Isn't that wonderful? I thought it was very thoughtful of them.

There are many restaurants around the city. So, please, use the website and find the one nearest you. I've never been disappointed by one and I've been to quite a few around the state. The food is delicious!! I would highly recommend the Maudene's Filet. 7oz. is more than enough for me but I believe there is a 10oz. cut as well. It comes with your choice of side (potatoes a few different ways or veggies) along with onion rings on the side. It's soooooo good!!!! When you order a steak you also get a choice of soup or salad. Both are delicious.

You get complimentary bread with fantastic tasting butter. So great.

When you order tea they bring out your own jar of tea so that you can refill your own glasses. My dad likes that.

Our goal in Houston was to...

by ScottyK

Our goal in Houston was to visit Johnson Space Center, headquarters of NASA. The tour was ok, but it was geared for folks who know little about the United States Space Program. Still got some good photos of the place. You'll enjoy it more when it's not humid.

Nasa Tram Tour

by keeweechic

The tours depart every 40 minutes and take around 90 mins. You will have to have a obligatory photo taken before you even enter the queue to board the tram. This is available at the end of your tour if you want it. It is actually a photo of yourself in two 5 x 7 photos as well as in a key holder for $15.00.

The guide we had was a bit hard going. He had worked at Nasa for many many years and was at retiring age (or past it). His documentary was laboured at times from being puffed out after climbing stairs at various stopping points. You felt like cranking him up. A smile now and then wouldn't have hurt either.
