A Hill Country haven found just minutes from downtown.
If you’re headed to Houston for the holidays, or for any other reason, you may want to give the Sheraton Suites Houston a closer look. Located near the Galleria, the 283-suite hotel just

I tried to pace myself, spending equal measure on each floor, but in the end it was impossible. I lost track of time among the dinosaurs, wildlife, gems and minerals, and weather. (Create a tornado? You can!)
Fresh starts- Renovated convention centers put their best foot forward in the race to attract events.
