As the second-largest state in the United States, Texas is brimming with some of the best attractions in the south. From wildlife parks to arid deserts, ultra-modern cities to small towns, Texas resort hotels put you in the heart of all the action.
Accommodation in Texas ranges from upmarket resort spas, such as the Hyatt Regency, to rustic Hill Country cabins in the Edwards Plateau. Wherever you choose, one thing is for sure: at a Texas resort hotel you will be treated to warm Southern hospitality.
Many resorts in the area offer free Wi-Fi, in-room entertainment, mini-bars, on-site restaurants and children’s play areas – high-end resorts also often include swimming pools, and hot tubs, too.
Shopping in Texas ranges from sleek, chic shopping malls, to mom-and-pop small-town stores and farmers’ markets. If you opt for a luxury Texas resort hotel in Houston, you won’t be far from designer clothing and boutique shops. If you make Hill Country your vacation spot, you’ll find handmade goods, local crafts and fresh produce on offer at the local street markets and stores.
Explore the wide, open spaces of Hill Country, enjoy exciting water sports at Horseshoe Bay, or practise your swing on some of Houston’s championship golf courses.
From the Old Settlers’ Music Festival in Caldwell County to the Pasadena Strawberry Festival in nearby Houston, there’s always something happening in the Lone Star State. Book your Texas resort hotel in advance to be sure of a guest room during festival season – this is especially pertinent when the Rodeo comes to town. If you’re interested in saving a few dollars, look out for the special offers which many Texas resort hotels offer during off-peak seasons.
In the city, cabs, buses and subways are the quickest mode of transport, while in the Hill Country it’s a good idea to rent a car. Of course, if you plan to explore the trails, it’s time to don your walking boots and head out into the wilderness.
