Houston Museum District Hotels

If you’re looking for a traditional hotel experience, the Hotel Zaza Museum District and the Blossom Hotel are the best Houston Museum District hotels. Hotels in Houston typically charge $50/night for parking. (The Zaza doesn’t disclose its parking prices, but it is a valet-only hotel.) Most other hotels in the area service patients and healthcare professionals visiting the Texas Medical Center. Other Museum District visitors opt to stay in Houston downtown, at a convention-style hotel, and drive to the museums.
