Re: Ravens at Texans
Some hotel help for those coming to my neck of the woods ...
Houston Grand Plaza hotel is the closest ... www.houcp.com ... its a very nice hotel, but there is NOTHING to do around the stadium besides buying boots and hitting a Luby's Cafeteria.
Any hotel near the medical center will have good prices and you can walk / short cab ride to the stadium. Again, you face the problem of having nothing to do before or after the game. The are around Reliant is a BAD neighborhood. Once you cross I-610 towards the south, you're in a hood equal to what you see on The Wire.
I highly recommend staying near The Galleria. Tons of hotels and some of Houstons best restaurants. There is also a Fox Sports Grille and a Champps near by. The Champps always has a Sunday brunch before the games and is VERY good. A cab ride from Galleria area to Reliant is about $25 each way.
Hampton Inn on Post Oak Pkwy is showing about $90.00 a night.
Hilton on Post Oak Blvd is showing $110 a night.
Homewood Suites on Sage Rd is showing about $125 a night.
There are also higher end hotels such as Hotel Derek, JW Marriot, etc all on Westheimer Road. Rooms here run anywhere from $150 to $300 a night.
