This 312-unit hotel close to the Galleria blends urban sophistication with Texas style—check out the life-size cow sculpture in a lobby decorated with oil derricks. Standard rooms feature platform beds, mod fixtures, contemporary artwork, and bright orange banquettes set against large windows. The higher up you go, the bigger the rooms and better the views; the one-bedroom Terrace Suites offer two bathrooms, a glass work desk, and a private terrace. The property also features a sleek restaurant serving updated comfort food such as chicken and waffles and lobster pot pie, and a bar pouring wine and Southern-influenced specialty cocktails.
