This Mother’s Day, Treat Yourself to a Staycation in Houston

This Mother's Day, Treat Yourself to a Staycation in Houston | Houston Moms Blog

Mother’s Day is coming up! While we all love the wonderful drawings from our kids and the obligatory new set of PJs {or the best socks eva!} from our partner, sometimes a well-deserved break is just what the doctor ordered. You don’t have to go far to enjoy a little “me time”.  Houston has several options available for a wonderful staycation!

Here are a few Mother’s Day staycation ideas!

For Moms That Want to Relax

If you are looking for a little downtime, peace, and quiet to celebrate your Mother’s Day, then the Houstonian might be a great spot for your special weekend!  Arguably one of the nicest hotels in Houston, the Houstonian is a spot of seclusion right in the middle of all the action of the city.  This tree laden property has several restaurants on site, a spa, a state of the art fitness center, and everything else needed to enjoy a dynamite staycation.

Indulge in a special Mother’s Day brunch in their grand ballroom then enjoy their many spa services geared towards mothers and mothers’ to be.  A Vitamin C facial, a manicure and pedicure, or a full body wrap are just what the doctor ordered for a quiet Mother’s Day staycation.

Alternate Option:: Hotel Zaza Museum District

For Moms That Are True Foodies

If the way to your heart is through your stomach, consider a staycation at the Woodlands Resort!  This hotel has five on site eating options.  Yep, you read that right — 5! Enjoy a lavish breakfast buffet at The Woodlands Dining Room.  Then relax at the Cool Water Cafe with a casual lunch {with a lap or two in the lazy river after}.  Devour a delicious surf and turf dinner at Robard’s Steakhouse that evening.  Cap that off with an after dinner drink at The Bistro.  Tired from all that eating?  Order desert in the comfort of your room with room service.  All of this without leaving the property!

If none of those options tickle your fancy, you’re still in luck!  The Woodlands Resort is surrounded by some of the best eateries in Houston’s dining scene like Schilleci’s New Orleans Kitchen and Hubbell & Hudson Bistro and Cureight.

Alternate Option: Hotel Sorella or Sugar Land Marriott 

{If you choose to go to Sugarland, make sure you stop by The Sweet Boutique for a cupcake or two! You won’t regret it!}

For Moms That Want to Party Like Its 1999

If your ideal Mother’s Day involves dropping it like its hot or shaking it like a salt shaker, then first of all — you go, girl! — but secondly, you might enjoy a staycation at the Marriott Marquis!  The hotel itself is home to Biggio’s, an upscale sports bar named after the Houston Astros Hall of Famer.  The hotel lobby also has a wine and tapas bar called Cueva.

But the real treats are in the surrounding area.  It’s within walking distance to GreenStreet, a downtown entertainment area, with tons of options to leave you feeling like Beyonce.  Catch some live music at House of Blues, bowl and boogie at Lucky Strike, or sing along with the pianists at Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar.

If you venture a little further into downtown, you’ll find even more options to help you light up the night like Engine Room or Jet Lounge.

For Moms That Love a Good Sale

If your ideal Mother’s Day includes purchasing a new handbag {or two}, then a staycation at the Westin Galleria might be the thing for you!  There are actually two Westin hotel options inside The Galleria:: The Westin Galleria Houston and the Westin Oaks Houston at the Galleria.  They are almost identical and both provide direct access to the mall so take your pick!  Both hotels even offer package deals that include a gift card to the mall with your stay.

The Galleria has everything from Neiman Marcus to Forever 21.  It is the largest mall in Texas with over 300 stores so you’re bound to find something to you like!  It also includes several dozen restaurants and an ice skating rink!

Alternate Option: Hotel Zaza Memorial City or Westin Memorial City

For Moms That Just Want to be {Beach} Bums

If you want to spend your Mother’s Day weekend lounging in the sun with a cool sea breeze blowing across your face, head to Galveston for a stay at The Holiday Inn Club Vacations Galveston Beach Resort!  The hotel is condo style so all rooms are 1 and 2 bedroom villas with a living room and kitchen.  Most of the villas feature a balcony with a beach view!

The beach is only a short distance away and is easily accessible from the hotel.  If you’d prefer the pool, the hotel has a heated outdoor pool and hot tub.

While you’re in Galveston, don’t forget to enjoy the other joys of the city like the Strand Historic District, Pleasure Pier, and Moody Gardens!

Alternate Option: Moody Gardens or Hotel Galvez & Spa
