Hi all. Two of us are attending a course/conference in Houston in May at the Texas Children's Hospital. We will only have a few free hours each evening because the course gets over at 5:30 pm.
We are thinking of staying at the Holiday Inn Express near the medical center or Hilton Medical Center due to the proximity to the hospital. Is there an area close by that would be good for a little walking/exploring/dinner in the evenings?
I would like to see a little bit of Houston but with the limited hours, not sure where to look. Would Rice Village be a good area to walk in the evening?
Would you recommend that we consider staying in a different area? There were some good rates for downtown hotels, but then we would rely on cabs to the medical center each day. We are on a budget and hoping not to go over the $130/night that we would pay near the medical center.
Any and all advice is welcome.
Thanks a lot.
