In February, American News and World Report ranked Tilman Fertitta’s luxury Post Oak Hotel # 13 in all of its top 50 hotels in the US in 2021 – and # 1 in Texas.
The opulent Post Oak still retains its status as Best in Houston in a new ranking, but an Austin hostel has been named Best in Texas by said outlet. Condé Nast traveler has just presented this title to the Fairmont Austin.
October 5, Condé Nast Traveler released the results of its 2021 Readers’ Choice awards. In addition to The Post Oak, three other local hotels are among the top 20 properties in Texas:
- The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa, Houston
- ZaZa Houston Museum District Hotel
- ZaZa Houston Memorial City Hotel
Since opening, the Post Oak has remained the only Forbes Double Five Star rated hotel in Texas. The 10-acre property in the heart of Post Oak has 38 floors, 250 rooms and suites; 20 executive residences; and an elegant 35,000 square foot conference room, including Uptown Houston’s largest ballroom.
Meanwhile, a massive 5,000 square foot two-bedroom Presidential Suite offers private elevator access, a media room, exercise room, and secluded patio. Another draw is the clubby, private Oak Room, where Houston’s elite mix and mingle.
Customers can visit the two-story Rolls-Royce showroom and the on-site Bentley and Bugatti Post Oak Motors dealership. VIPs can fly in the hotel’s private helicopter.
For this year Condé Nast traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, the magazine polled hundreds of thousands of readers from April 1 to May 31. Readers rated hotels on these criteria: rooms, service, food, design, location, value, activities and facilities.
