Inspector Picks: Five Favorite Texas Hotels with Pools
Embassy Suites by Hilton The Woodlands/Hughes Landing
The Woodlands, Texas
AAA Inspector 556: Swimming to the edge of this rooftop infinity pool will give you a birds eye view of the plaza below. The experience can be intense.
Rooms have separate living and sleeping areas providing you with plenty of privacy. Balcony rooms give you a nice view of restaurant row and the lake. Enjoy an evening reception each day. If you're hosting a meeting, you will appreciate the expanded and upscale meeting space.
Hilton Garden Inn Longview
AAA Inspector 19: Most pools are built for adults or good swimmers. I love that this one seems to have been built specifically for the enjoyment of younger children.
The rooms at this hotel have vinyl plank flooring, upgraded coffeemakers and bright bathrooms. The large pool has a short lazy river feature and other kid friendly features. This hotel has gone completely cashless so be prepared before arrival.
