Hotels near Minute Maid Park

by Stef619

I am visiting Houston in June to see my beloved Yankees take on the Astros. I have not been to Houston since I was 16 years old so I don't know the city or the area surrounding the ballpark at all. Can anyone help me find a decent hotel near the park? The Inn at the Ballpark is booked. Does anyone know about Club Quarters? It's about 5-6 blocks away on Fannin Street. I don't plan on renting a car so I would like something close to the ballpark and within walking distance to local attractions (if possible).

Keep in mind this is a weekend series, so I prefer not to be staying in a ghost town. Thanks!

If you are downtown in a hotel, you will be close to the stadium.

The Hilton is another very close by option.

Oh and to you "ghost town" comment - Downtown Houston has changed *a lot* in the last 16 years. It is actually quite vibrant, and there is plenty to do day/night/weekend.

Re: Hotels near Minute Maid Park

by Stef619

thanks LaCoHa. I made the ghost town comment because I know of many major cities that are very busy during the week when people are working and then you can't find a soul there on the weekend. Parts of downtown Atlanta for example (I know I used to live there). and since I don't know the area I just wanted to make the clear. So the Hilton you say?

Re: Hotels near Minute Maid Park

The Hilton (Convention Center) definitely is the best choice for Minute Maid park. There will be plenty of people there since it is Convention headquarters. If you are looking for places to go afterward, there are many options, and Midtown has a bunch of clubs and other spots. If you want a drink and people watching, my best man runs a bar called XO in Midtown. His name is Joe Beck, and would be glad to serve you a drink or two.

The Alden is right next to the ballpark too. Its the old Sam Houston, completely revamped. Its usually a good deal as well. The Hilton Americanas is a little further away. I believe that both hotels have free town car service. I know that its free at the Alden, you might have to pay at the Hilton.

Don't want to hijack your post but I too will be in Houston for the series. I am from CA but living in New Orleans and still loving the Yankees. Have you booked a place yet? We were thinking the DoubleTree but its kind of far, or so it seems. I too, haven't been to Houston in about a decade. If you aren't crazy (and it doesn't seem like you are) we may be able to team up and cheer on our boys. LOL

Club Quarters is within walking distance but the Hilton Americas is closest. Hyatt might be a bit more affordable, still downtown and more of a walk to the ballpark. My favorite hotel downtown is the Magnolia, close to ball park and Sambuca (good bar downtown). There is also a Holiday Inn Express close to the ball park as well.

Travel Tips for Houston

The Karankawas: the Indians of the Houston area

by XenoHumph

Before Europeans came to what is now the Houston area (the first explorator of the region being the spaniard Cabeza de la Vaca in 1528), indians called Karankawas roamed the Gulf Coast area. The last Karankawas were killed in 1858. Karankawas were nomadic hunter-gatherers, living mainly on fish.

More on Karankawas can be found in the Handbook of Texas Online
This picture was taken from a website on the Karankawas of Padre Island
A map of Karankawas territory can be found at http://www.TexasIndians.com
Authentic descriptions of Karankawas by early European explorators can be found here

Houston's Galleria Area

by jjp76 about The Galleria

I know this is a touristy area, but it also has some of the city's best shopping and restaurants. Sometimes considered Houston's other downtown, the Galleria Area is about 6 miles west of the real downtown.

In and around the Galleria, you will find most of the high-end shopping including Tiffany, Versace, Fendi, Hermes, etc. and countless other retailers. You will also find notable restaurants such as Cafe Annie, Tony's, Americas, and Grotto.

While in the Galleria area, you must also visit the Williams Tower (formerly the Transco Tower) and the neighboring Waterwall. The Williams Tower is the tallest building in the country outside of a central business district, and is a great example of retro modern architecture. High-end and designer items.

Great Tex-Mex!

by rsleisk about Doneraki Restaurant and Cantina

Erakio, an Indian from the small Mexican town of Anahuac, created Tacos al Carbon using his own method of preparing marinated strips of beef and pork on a rotating up-right spit, known as 'El Trompo' or 'The Top.' Erakio?s tacos and other original creations became so famous that people began to call him Don Erakio, a way of showing respect.

Continuing the culinary tradition of its namesake, Doneraki Restaurant serves delicious grilled dishes like the Tacos Al Carbon del Trompo and Carne Asada, as well as filling house combos like the Doneraki Tipico (Taco al Carbon, Enchilada, Fajitadilla, Flauta, rice and beans). The Enchiladas, Mexican beer!

Great Seafood, With a Gulf Coast Feel!

by H-TownJourneyman about Goode Company Seafood

Goode Company Seafood is another restaurant in the local Goode Company chain of restaurants. There are actually 2 locations, but I have only been to the one on Westpark. The restaurant building itself is quite interesting, as part of it is an old Amtrak train car, sitting on tracks (hopefully the brakes are locked, but I have never asked!). Inside you will find decor that reminds you of a local seafood kitchen found in a small town along the Gulf Coast. Lots of old pictures of fisherman on the walls, as well as fishing tackle and nets, even some fish (They are dead, and have been taken to the taxidermist). The part of the restaurant housed in the train has the bar, as well as tables. You'll find patrons dining at both. The other half of the restaurant is strictly tables. The food here is top notch Gulf seafood. Appetizers such as shrimp cocktails and shucked oysters make great starters. They also have excellent gumbo to begin with, or make a meal out of. The Poboy sandwiches here are also really good. Main entrees include a long list of various fish dinners, crab, shrimp, oysters, etouffee, and even steak. The Pecan pie will be sure to finish off your hunger quite nicely! Catfish filet. Some of the best fried Catfish in town!

Touching the moon...

by Djinn76

Yipeee, I'm touching the moon ;-) An example amongst the different attractions of the center is this tiny moon part visitor can touch...

I haven't learned anything new but well, now I can say I've been in contact with the moon ;-)
