Recently, I was able to get away for the night. I wish I could say that I looked this happy and refreshed when I arrived, but that wasn’t the case. I couldn’t sleep the night before we left. My head was spinning with thoughts like, was everything going to go ok without me?, were all my preparations going to pan out?, did I forget to sign my son’s folder? I’d also be remiss if I didn’t mention the guilty feelings nagging at me. I mean, who did I think I was getting away to do something entirely for myself? Maybe this is the exact reason I needed to get away for a night. To realize that I’m just not that big of a deal and one night is not that big of a deal. I was taking myself way too seriously. The kids were fine. It’s not like I’m the president -ha! A night away is just what I needed!
Just in case you are in need of a night away in Houston, I have the perfect spot for you- the newly renovated Four Seasons in downtown Houston! If you ask me, Houston was in desperate need of an updated, modern, chic hotel by a service oriented brand, such as the Four Seasons. I love staycations just as much as anyone, and this will be my new spot. You’ll see why…
Here’s a sneak peek at the new lobby. It’s so cozy and chic for a lobby, no?
Yucking it up with the girls in the lobby. Apparently I think Georgia is hilarious. My sister? Not so much- ha!
The Bayou and Bottle Lounge. Clearly I could never be a bartender, since it appears all I can do is point at empty decanters? Pretty cool bar though.
Just off the bar and restaurant are two Top Golf Simulator rooms. You can reserve them for a fun activity while you stay at the hotel or just for a fun night out in Houston. Your friends hang out on the sofa and chairs and chat while…
…you take turns playing Top Golf. We thought it was so fun, we reserved one of the rooms that weekend to bring all of our friends back for a fun night out!
Ok. I’m sorry, but I can’t help myself… I have to show y’all the bathrooms. I always love it when you go to a new restaurant and someone says, “You have to check out the bathrooms.” This is exactly how I felt, so I have to show them to you.
The womens… Now, can I renovate my bathroom at home and make it look exactly like this? Ha! The mens… They each have their own tv!
The fun pictures:
The outdoor area beyond the Lounge. It was so clean and pretty! I wanted to transport the entire seating area straight to my backyard.
I didn’t get a pedicure because you know I couldn’t possibly part with my high tops -hahaha! I swear, I do have other shoes.
I stared at this piece of art outside The Spa for way too long, and then my sister walked up and did the same. I want it in my house.
Even the elevators were cool! Leave it to Traci Ling to take the best elevator picture and then…
… The Spa locker room picture.
This is me trying to portray how relaxed felt after getting a treatment at The Spa, but I just ended up looking I’m like I’m toasting my sister with my eyes closed. HA!
This is a picture of the next weekend when we went back to the Top Golf Simulator room! It was so fun!
If you are looking for a place to stay in Houston, the Four Season’s Houston will not disappoint!
