Patient housing near the Texas Medical Center (TMC) is difficult to find on short notice. If you’re a patient traveling from out of town, it’s tempting to settle for a hotel or an Airbnb listing, but neither living situation is ideal. You may end up in a cramped hotel room or worse- an Airbnb that looks nothing like the pictures. Then when it comes time to extend or shorten your stay, you may have no option but to pay cancellation fees or find other furnished apartments in a matter of days.

However, Lodgeur knows a thing or two about finding the ideal home-away-from-home, so let us take care of it. After all, life is stressful enough without worrying about a comfortable place to stay.

Lodgeur is the top provider for furnished apartments Houston Medical Center

furnished bedroom

We have hosted more than 7,000 guests, and we are the largest furnished apartments provider in Midtown and the Medical Center area.

When you book a Lodgeur apartment, you can expect a professionally designed space that’s fully-equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We’ve thought of it all- from our cozy, memory foam mattress and high speed internet to an organized kitchen and lounge-ready living room.

Now here’s come the hard part, deciding which Lodgeur location best fits your needs: Mid Main Lofts or Elan Med Center.

Living at Mid Main Lofts in Midtown Houston

At Mid Main Lofts, we have fully-furnished apartments ready to rent for healthcare travelers, including studios, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units. Take a 3D virtual tour of Lodgeur’s furnished apartments in Midtown and see floorpans for the unit types. You will also find tours of the expansive gym, pool and other amenities.

It’s conveniently located between downtown and the TMC with its own stop on the METRORail line right outside the building. Driving to TMC can be a headache (especially during rush hour), so oftentimes patients and traveling medical professionals opt for the METRORail instead. (If you’re new to this kind of public transportation, don’t worry, we have a fool-proof guide to help you get around the city like a local!)

The METRORail makes getting around a breeze, but on those days you don’t feel like traveling far to grab a bite to eat or order to-go, you have access to all kinds of restaurants and bars within a three-block radius. Midtown is known as one of the most bustling and walkable parts of town, so you’ll have plenty of places to explore right on your doorstep!

Living at Elan Med Center in the Texas Medical Center

Situated in the Texas Medical Center neighborhood directly across from MD Anderson Cancer Center, Elan Med Center is an extremely popular place for patients and traveling medical professionals to stay. It’s within walking distance of TMC (You can see MD Anderson from your window!) and is just a short drive away from some southwest Houston’s most iconic locations: Hermann Park. Houston Zoo, Rice Village, and the Museum District.

You can also take the METRORail from the TMC and be in Midtown or downtown in minutes. Some of our guests take our complimentary wheelchair across the street to MD Anderson for appointments, because it’s just that close.

A fully-appointed gym and infinity pool provide more opportunities to leave the hospital behind when you come home. The building has offices on each floor, which can be reserved for work, conference calls or other quiet activities while your patient is catching up on quiet time. Amazon and Uber Eats deliver directly to your door.
