A lovely hotel in Houston
Houston offers a multicultural metropolitan experience that makes it the perfect city break.
Houston is easy to get to. As the city has two airports and there are flights to Houston from all over the world, a holiday in Houston is nothing if not easily accessible. Car rental is available at the Bush Intercontinental Airport or Hobby Airport too, and the city's highway network makes the drive to the city centre seamless. Many of the highways have special lanes for public transport or carpooling, making the trip faster if you travel with a group.
In Houston there are a variety of hotel options available. Whether you want a convenient airport hotel or one close to the centre, Expedia has you covered. Book your accommodation based on your plans.

Holocaust Museum - During your visit to Houston, a visit to the Holocaust Museum is a sobering experience. This exhibition teaches about the cruelties committed during the Holocaust. Through the permanent show "Bearing Witness: A Community Remembers", visitors get to know stories from survivors of the Holocaust that live in and around Houston. There are also stories of hope and of human bravery too; see one of the Danish rescue boats used to help Jews flee from concentration camps.
