Downtown Houston Hotels

The hotels closest to the GRB Convention Center tend to fill up quickly during major events like URTeC. Downtown parking fees can also be quite high.

Midtown is a destination of its own, known for its abundance of walkable restaurants and coffee shops. 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.

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.

Midtown’s Ensemble Station takes you to the GRB and other Houston destinations

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

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

METRORail direct to the Convention Center

Ride the rails to Houston attractions.

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 the NRG Center? Just a short light rail ride away.

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 Daley Sports Club. 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 at the Expos.

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.
