Shoppers can choose from two newly renovated Westin properties located on site. The Westin Galleria and The Westin Oaks Hotel are ideal locations for anyone looking for a spectacular Houston experience. The Westin Galleria is well suited for large groups looking to host a convention with ample meeting space. Both hotels are connected to The Galleria, allowing guests direct access to over 400 shops and 34 restaurants.
From the neighboring Water Wall, a dramatic 64-foot U-shaped fountain situated among the shade of 180 live oaks to the Houston Museum District which welcomes more than seven million annual visits as one of the top cultural districts in the country, Houston is well versed in entertainment. Sports fans should check out Houston’s dynamic new stadiums for football, basketball, soccer, baseball, or hockey. Those looking for something more dramatic, can visit Houston's downtown Theater District spanning 17 blocks with nearly 13,000 seats in a concentrated downtown area. Located in the heart of Houston’s Hermann Park, the Houston Zoo provides a fun, unique, and inspirational experience fostering appreciation, knowledge, and care for the natural world. Entertainment is abundant at the House of Blues, home to live music, original folk art, and delta-inspired cuisine.
