Hotel Zaza, Houston
Rates: From $200

Highlights: In Texas everything is bigger - and that includes the rooms at the Hotel Zaza, which can measure up to 3,000 square feet for suites (some of which have decadent touches, such as outdoor bathtubs). Built in 1926, it was formerly known as the Warwick; the latest renovation has updated rooms with an Asian influence, subdued tones, and red-lacquered furniture.

The Zaza is a welcome addition to Houston, which is home to 25 Fortune 500 companies - more than any city but New York. Situated on the light-rail line, it also boasts easy access to both convention centers.

Don't miss: Complimentary car service to neighborhood locations; complimentary snacks, tea, and coffee on every floor.
