Houston Road trip


I will be driving from Covington, KY to Downtown Houston, TX. I want to seek your help and advice in finding stopovers along the way.

Covington, KY- Stop B: 4 to 6.5 hours drive (6.5 hours is really the maximum)

Stop B- Stop C: 4 to 6.5 hours drive

Stop C- Houston, TX: 4 to 6.5 hours drive

I need help coming with destinations for Stop B and Stop C.

** I want to avoid going to Little Rock, Arkansas** So, please advise me of a route that does not involve staying over for the night in Little Rock. Please suggest other routes.

I do not mind traveling out of my way a little if I can avoid Little Rock and stay at nicer full- service Marriott, Hyatt, or Hilton hotels.

I am NOT interested in staying at a limited or select- service hotel (i.e. please do not suggest Courtyard, Fairfield Inn, Residence Inn, Hyatt Place, Hampton, etc) I would prefer full- service Marriott, Renaissance, Autograph Collection, and Hyatt Regency if possible.

If you can please recommend specific hotels (instead of just naming a city), that will be superb.

Thanks a ton.

By the way, my criteria for stopovers is quite similar to my criteria for my road trip to Austin. I will be taking both road trips to Houston (in June) and Austin (in March).

You already got info in your other thread. Can't add much but a great stay will be at The Peabody (with the ducks) in Memphis.

If you want to make a detour and bypass Little Rock maybe also check Hilton Baton Rouge.

If I want to make a detour and take the Baton Rouge route, what is a good stop in between Covington, KY and Baton Rouge?
