My 69 yr old mother will be accompanying me to a 4 day conference at the convention center the end of June. While I am away at lectures most of the day, she will want to go out and explore ... shopping, etc. ... but I know that she will want to do all of her exploring by foot and not take public transportation (unless I'm with her). We also want to check out some museums and go to NASA. We will not have a car. We also would like breakfast included in the room rate daily if possible.
Options for hotels at discounted conference rates are Hilton Americas (headquarter hotel), Courtyard Houston Downtown, Crowne Plaza, Doubletree, Embassy Suites, Four Seasons, Hotel Icon, Hyatt Regency, or Residence Inn. There will be a shuttle provided from some of these hotels to the convention center.
Any suggestions for which hotel to choose which has shopping/restaurants nearby? Thank you!
