One night in Houston-bad location

by SkyKat

Hello all!
I'll be in Houston several times over the next little while, each time for just one night/day. My company puts me up at the Houston Marriott North at Greenspoint (255 North Sam Houston Parkway East). I understand this location is close to the airport. Is there anything close by, even if I have to take a short taxi ride there? When I say anything, I'm looking for a wide variety of things-a nice dinner at a non-chain restaurant, a non-country music bar, possibly some outlet shopping, a museum or something I may not have thought of. I may be on my own, as I can't be sure my colleagues will care to join me, so safety is also key(especially in the evening). Thanks for any tips!

Ther Greenspoint Mall is within walking distance, but it isn't the greatest. There's nothing else around culture-wise, just restaurants and more hotels catering to the airport business. There are a few good Texas BBQ restaurants that are local chains. But unfortunately, you're kind of stuck out in the middle of nowhere since the airport is far from Houston proper (about 20 miles).

If you are able to manage it timewise, it would suit you to go to Houston proper and stay at some place there, like the Galleria area where you have all the things you had mentioned. but it might take 45 minutes to get there by taxi. or you may have to rent a car. there are many many hotels near the IAH airport and almsot all of them are bland and without character. the service personnel seem to know that you are staying there because you have to, not because you want to.. service thus tend to be very poor

It's almost all chain restaurants in that area. There's a really good, little Japanese place on the other side of I-45 that I've eaten at for years, but you can't walk it from the Marriott. It's an office area by nature and shuts down after working hours. Greenspoint 15 or 20 years ago was one of the worst areas of the city (even though it's 15 miles from Downtown) and, although it's improved quite a bit, it's still not a good area to walk around in at night, especially alone.
Rent a car, if you can. You'll be able to drive south to non-chain areas (generally just west of Downtown, like Montrose, and into the Galleria area) and really enjoy Houston. There's nothing to do where you're staying.

I would sooner rent a car than take a 45 minute taxi ride. So, that being said, Montrose or Galleria areas are recommended? Any favorite restaurants/bars/shops or streets in those areas?

What's the name of the Japanese restaurant near my hotel-I may consider going there before heading back to the airport to catch my flight back in the afternoon. Thanks for the tips.

The Greenspoint area is not one of the safest areas and the mall is not one of the nicest. It would be worth it to rent a car (would cost about the same as taxi) and drive to the Galleria, great mall and good restaurants in the mall and within walking distance from the mall. The Midtown area (just sw of downtown) has fun bars and restaurants. Feel free to e-mail me if you need more info next time you're planning to be in Houston.

Re: One night in Houston-bad location

The Greenspoint area is not a nice area... the mall is, well, not the best I've been to, to say the least. I looked into renting a car and the cost is ridiculous since it's not a weekend-was even considering going to the Rodeo for a few hours-I've never been to a rodeo. Guess I'm stuck in Greenspoint again... hopefully I'll have more time in town next time and can follow all your great suggetions. Thank you all. :)

Travel Tips for Houston

Visit a downtown.

by barcodex

Not just visit a downtown. Choose the right time to do it. If you're not in a business trip, visit downtown on a holiday. It is so empty on holidays, that you can be even scared by that. It was very strange for me to see a lot of huge buildings, and practically no people.

Enron Field is Houston's new...

by tarush

Enron Field is Houston's new baseball arena replacing the renowned Astrodome.. Located downtown, this stadium embraces cutting edge technology while sticking to baseball basics.. Catch a game or get a behind the scenes tour..

Awesome food and service!

by KelsoTravels about Bonnie's Beef and Seafood Company

This restaurant is located just off the freeway. You could miss it among all the other businesses located along the same stretch but don't! The food is superior and so is the service! The steak literally melts in your mouth, the grilled shrimp was perfect, the salad bar offers a large variety of items to choose from and the desserts are to die for!

If you're looking for entertainment, a live band plays at this restaurant while you dine and when weather permits, enjoy outdoor seating.

Closed on Sundays

A "must try" restaurant! The filet mignon was the best I've ever had!

Burgers and More

by msbrandysue about Red Robin's

Red Robin's is more famous for their stacked burgers than anything else... However, my mom and I go there for their salads and wraps. I have tried all of their wraps and hard time deciding which one to order each time I go...which is fairly often (sometimes up to once a week).

It can be loud in there...Most of the waiters are high school or college kids having a good time. It's very family oriented and has discounts for kids on certain nights with the mascot showing up once a week. In fact their website says Parents Magazine named them one of the top 10 family restaurants.

They usually have games on to watch which I've always liked. They also have a small bar and arcade.

Alcoholic drinks are served!!!

Museum of Funeral History

by GUYON

It is a very astonishing museum located in the North outskirts of Houston.
It is rather funny, not too morbid.
There are the casket of Snowwhite (on the picture) or those made to satisfy the orders of original persons : they look like a fish, a crab, a cow, a shallot (!?).
Ther is also the 3 places coffin. It was ordered by a couple who had just lost his young son and who wanted to suicide. After some months, they changed their mind and did not ask the coffin to be delivered. Several years ago, the wife sent a letter to the Funeral Parlor asking the reimbursement of the price. The answer was : we are not the initial owner of the business and we don't know the deal.
There are also a presentation of the burial of several US Presidents and the one of the King of France Louis XVIII.
Some very beautiful vehicles are also in exibit.
It worths a visit.

Ticket : 6$
Parking : free
Open : 10AM-4PM (Monday - Friday)
