Home Away From Home, Four Seasons Hotel In Houston

When I think about Luxury hotels, Four Seasons are always the first ones that come to my mind. A few months ago, I had the chance to stay at the fantastic Four Seasons Hotel in Houston for two nights.

This Four Seasons hotel is the luxury 5-star hotel in the heart of downtown Houston. Not only does it feature a relaxing spa and fitness center complete with pools, it’s an amazing location for any social gathering, and includes fine dining options such as authentic Italian cuisine, small plates and the finest wines. It is tucked away in the thriving business district. The Four Seasons Houston Hotel features 404 well-appointed guest rooms and suites that reflect the urban elegance and laidback Southern charm of the city. Its location in bustling downtown is in close proximity to tons of trendy cafes and artsy coffeehouses making it a prime home away from home destination.

The Four Seasons brand represents excellence when it comes to service throughout your stay. I have been to so many newer luxury hotels. I loved their brand new facilities and cool modern technology, but I always feel like there is something missing. For me, the materials are important for a luxury hotel, but the most important part is the service. It is the people who work there really loving their jobs and caring about the guests. When I am traveling, I love to feel like I am being treated as a queen! 😉 That is one of the pleasures of traveling, right? I definitely felt this when I was staying at the Four Seasons Hotel in Houston.

My room was very spacious and my bed was super comfy. I have a sleep number bed at home which I love very much, but the bed at the Four Seasons is even better than my own bed! I also love the Nespresso coffee machine in my room very much too! It makes very yummy espresso. Ok, now let’s talk about the wonderful staff there. It didn’t matter where I was in the hotel, the staff always gave me a big bright smile, greeted me and asked me if I needed any help. The staff at the front dest were totally outstanding. They remembered my name and always gave me very practical suggestions for food, shopping and entertainment choices. The part I really appreciated was they weren’t pushy with guests about eating at their own restaurants, they listened to your needs and found the best choice nearby. They even made reservations at a few restaurants and bought a radio ticket for me.

This is the second post about Shanghai, you can read the first one here. If you have read the first one, you probably have already seen the modern side of this huge city. In this second post, I want to show you around of the traditional side of Shanghai.

Shanghai represents the most populous city in China with a population that reach more than 23 million people. Shanghai as many of the most developed cities in western countries, is divided in two districts by the Huangpu River. The west area is named Puxi (older part of the city) while the east Pudong, (new part of the city) is characterized by innovative developments and a modern landscape. You should have already seen the modern parts of this city in my first post.

From a tourist point of view Puxi, being the older part of the city has more historical background; this is especially visible in the walled Old City district. The latter indeed remained the same without any western influences, and tourists can still experience the authentic China. The Old City district includes many must-see attractions, such as: the Xiaotayuan Mosque Dajing Tower, Old City wall, Yuyuan Garden, Chenxiang Temple and the Temple of Gods. All the photos here were taken at the Yuyuan Garden when I was there this past February.

There are often people asking me, what Shanghai looks like. I usually tell them to think about the size, Shanghai is bigger than New York City, and the weather is comparable to Atlanta’s. 😉 Shanghai has great scenery and the food is some of the best eats in the world. If you love boutique shopping, you are in your little heaven! There are so many cool independent designer boutiques in Shanghai with the cutest clothing and accessories.
