First time attendees should know to enroll in classes now, so that you can be sure to get a spot in popular lectures and schedule time with friends to attend classes and explore all of the quilts, sewing machines, threads, patterns, materials and other products on sale.

Stay at Lodgeur’s Mid Main Lofts for the International Quilt Festival

Make the most of your Quilt Festival experience by staying at Lodgeur’s Mid Main Lofts in Midtown Houston. Our luxury lofts offer a comfortable and stylish stay just minutes away from the George R. Brown Convention Center. With a whole apartment to yourself, you will have plenty of room to stash all the new fabrics, notions, patterns and tools that you purchase from the hundreds of exhibitors at the show. Even better, check out the extensive fabric collection in the multi-story High Fashion Fabrics only 3 blocks from Lodgeur.

Pro tip: if you want to set up a sewing room in your home away from home, book one of our Digital Nomad Suites which includes an office and desk for your sewing machine and fabric.

Houston Downtown Hotels

The hotels closest to the event action (Hilton Americas-Houston, Marriott Marquis-Downtown and Hampton Downtown) tend to fill up quickly. Parking can run as high as $50 per night at hotels near the GRB.

Hotels Alternatives for Quilt Festival Houston 2023

Midtown is a destination of its own, known for its abundance of walkable restaurants and nightlife. If you’re looking to go beyond the typical chain hotel search and experience a new kind of lodging, be sure to check out Lodgeur in Midtown. Lodgeur is Midtown’s largest hotelier.

With Lodgeur, you can book a furnished apartment like you would book a hotel. Lodgeur has lower nightly rates, complimentary parking and plenty of reasonably-priced restaurants on site.

Benefits of Staying in a Midtown Furnished Apartment Over a Downtown Hotel

Each property is designed to give you more space and privacy than a typical hotel, without sacrificing the convenience of a central location.

Here is what you can expect from your luxury accommodations with Lodgeur:

Convenient Transportation Options

Free garage parking for Lodgeur guests

If you’re driving to Houston, skip the $50 nightly parking fees charged by nearby hotels. While there is no valet parking, Lodgeur offers free parking in the attached parking garage. There is also a dedicated pickup spot for Uber and Lyft rides. (Your average nightly price is always lower with Lodgeur’s complimentary parking!)

Don’t miss a thing. Instead of wasting time searching for parking, you can hop on the light rail to zip downtown past the traffic.

Lodgeur at Mid Main Lofts in Midtown is located directly on the METRORail Red Line to downtown Houston, including The George R. Brown Convention Center. No connection needed. One-way tickets cost $1.25.

Using the METRORail to explore Houston

You can use the Red Line of the METRORail to visit nearby attractions like the Houston Zoo, Downtown Aquarium, or Houston’s many great museums and special attractions.

Check out our blog post about using the METRORail to get around the city without a car. You won’t need a car after that Uber ride from the airport.

Choose the Best Location in Houston

If you’re planning a trip to Houston, location matters! The Midtown neighborhood is Houston’s most walkable location (WalkScore of 91!), so you can easily explore all that the city has to offer at the best price. And the distance to downtown? Just 1 mile.

Houston’s Best Food is in the Midtown Neighborhood

You won’t need to eat breakfast at the same place twice with Midtown’s huge choice of restaurants. While you won’t be able to order a soggy burger from room service or get free breakfast, Home Slice Pizza is right next door and has a takeaway window serving up the city’s best pizza. You’ll be able to order a great breakfast downstairs at The Brass Tap. For an authentic Houston experience, order the toasted sandwiches at Winnie’s.

You’ll find several places to eat or drink downstairs and next door, but you can walk to dozens more locations. Midtown’s affordable restaurants beat any special offers or discounts you’ll find downtown.

Remote self check-in beats an “express check in” line

You can skip waiting in line for the hotel staff at the front desk to help you check in (during the busiest events of the year for Houston hotels). Instead of having a front desk, Lodgeur offers 24/7 remote check in. The leasing office at Mid Main Lofts provides luggage storage for Lodgeur guests on the ground floor of the building. All Lodgeur units are non-smoking rooms.
