The Rest of the Best: Houston's Top 10 Hotels to Stash Visitors During the Holidays

Ah, the holidays are here. For many of us that means visiting relatives and friends. Where can you safely and happily stash your holiday visitors? What's the best bang for your buck? Here's our list of top hotels for visiting relatives and friends. They're spread out around the city. Prices are estimates (we requested rates for one room with two double/queen beds, checking in on December 23 and checking out December 27. Ratings and comments are from user reviews and our own firsthand experience.

10. Hotel La Quinta Inn & Suites - Houston Intercontinental Airport South 15510 John F. Kennedy, 281-219-2000

Let's start somewhere close to the Bush Intercontinental Airport. One online price quote for our fictional stay of four nights for four. was $388. Pretty good price.

On the positive side: The hotel has free breakfast, an onsite restaurant and shuttle service to the airport. It's clean, comfortable and located close enough to IAH that picking up and dropping off visitors at the airport should be a quick trip.

On the negative side: There's isn't much within walking distance and the noise from the airplanes flying overhead might disturb some visitors. (We think of this as the In-law special, cheap and close to the airport.)
