I’m stopping over in Houston on my way home from the US in May. I fly in from NOLA and have Wednesday afternoon, all of Thursday and most of Friday, needing to be back at the airport for about 1800.
I was going to visit the Space Centre. There is a nice hotel there, the Hilton Clear Lake. Alternatively, the Hilton Pole Oak downtown. I have Hilton membership.
The Space Centre has, as far as I can tell, zero public transport options so either I am going to have to drive myself or use Uber/Blacklane/Similar.
Has anyone been to the Space Centre and is it worth staying local to it, or better to stay downtown and travel there?April 15, 2019 at 1:43 pm NZST #5640
I’ve been to the Space Center twice, and both times have been by car.
I assume you mean Hilton Post Oak, not Pole Oak? I’ve stayed there a couple of times as well.
There are buses that goes from Downtown, but the Post Oak is in the Galleria area, and not downtown itself, which means you’d need to get across there first. Looking on Google maps that would be about 2 hours each way.
I was going to stay at the Hilton Clear Lake when I was there last time, but opted for the Holiday Inn Kameh instead for an IHG points promo.
I don’t really have a view as to what’s best – but if you didn’t want to hire a car it’s potentially going to cost more than an Uber, which looking at it now is US$30 from Hilton Post Oak.
I do recommend staying in the Galleria region rather than downtown. Downtown Houston isn’t really a convention downtown and has nothing there. The Galleria area is the best spot.
