Crown Plaza Downtown Houston

by stacy_yx

Hi

I will be stayin at Crown Plaza Downtown for a 2-day meeting. I have half a day before the meeting (arrive airport at 2pm).
What is the easiest n economical way to get to the hotelfrom IAH airport?
Assuming I get checked in by 4pm, what could I do to fill the rest ofthe evening? Any sights or nice restaurants in the vicinity for me to try?
And if I would like to shop a bit, is there any gd mall in the vicinity?

Pls advise. First time in Houston and haven't had time to read up on the place. Bogged down w work!!;)

Re: Crown Plaza Downtown Houston

There is somewhat of an express bus between IAH and Downtown that runs during the day: http://www.ridemetro.org/Services/airport_direct.aspx

There are quite a few restaurants and bars in the Downtown that are a few blocks away from your hotel. It's also a short cab ride to some of the bars in the Montrose. Cecil's is a favorite of mine on Gray, relatively close to the hotel. I wouldn't walk this alone late at night not knowing the city, but it's an option. I like Rudyard's more, but that's a little further.

To fill out the rest of the time, you can take the light rail to the city's museum district. There's a fantastic fine arts museum (Museum of Fine Arts Houston) as well as what I think is one of the best contemporary arts museums in the country (it's also free). Several other museums in that area that may interest you: http://www.houstonmuseumdistrict.org/

There are no malls that you can walk to or access by light rail. However, you could take a bus. The closest mall to Downtown is also the largest: The Galleria. http://galleriahouston.com/
To get there from your hotel, you take route #81 or #82, which picks up right outside your hotel on Smith St., to the corner of Westheimer and Post Oak. This will actually give you a good tour of the Montrose area of Houston also, which is an interesting area.

Hope that helps.

I am a native houstonian and live near downtown, I personally wouldn't walk to any of the bars/restaurants near your hotel. I would cab it. There has recently been a few unsolved murders of women in the downtown area, there was even a story in the www.chron.com a month or so ago about it being a possible serial killer!

Travel Tips for Houston

Houston Greeters

by lunarleo

Houston Greeters is a local organization (part of the Global Greeter network, which is in cities all over the world) that will allow visitors to spend time with local Houstonians, who will share their particular favorite spot in the city. There are many greeters and many activities to enjoy.

Asian Food, Anyone?

by GroovyDoc

If you need to pick up some ingredients for your next Asian meal, take a field-trip like excursion to the monstrous Hong Kong suermarket on Bellaire on a Saturday afternoon. Tons of Asians shop there because they have the largest selection of fresh seafood (including snails, clams, live fish and lobster, and crabs) and fresh vegetables. You'll see fruits and vegetables that you didn't even know existed! On the weekends, they make lots of pastries and quick appetizer-like foods that you can buy. They've got lucky bamboo plants (make good gifts) and other plants you can't find anywhere else. You can even pick up a cheap wok or chopsticks. It's located in a large shopping plaza, so there are restaurants and other shops to explore, too. Be aware that it's so packed on the weekends that it's really hard to find parking... keep driving around. Hey, it's not DisneyWorld, but it's a free indoor activity that kids and adults will all enjoy!

The only way to get around...

by marciaca

The only way to get around Houston is by car. The public transportation system is dismal at best. It had been one of my major complaints about Houston. It consists of the bus. If you want to take the bus, you'll need about 3-4x the amount of time to get from place to place. There are also a lot of shady people that ride the bus.

Great steaks and seafood in the Montrose area

by XenoHumph about Ruggle's Grill

This restaurant is elegant, relatively expensive, but their food is just amazing. Whether you set yourself for a steak or for seafood, it is a burst of subtle flavors in the meat and accompanying vegetables. I highly recommand it!

Space Center

by 10eke

Attractions at Space Center Houston are self guided The Space Center Theater has a 5-story movie screen where you can watch IMAX films that will take you on a journey to outer space.

Other attractions allow you to learn what it would be like living and working in space (the 20-minute Living in Space presentation); test your piloting skills by landing an 80-ton orbiter via simulation or retrieving a satellite with the Manned Maneuvering Unit
You'll have the opportunity to see Mission Control and the astronaut training facilities, including the Space Environment Simulation Laboratory and the Mock-Up & Integration Laboratory
