Rice University Hotel & Travel Guide

You'll definitely enjoy your visit to Rice University.

Houston, the city where it's located, is a popular place to visit any time of the year.

Are you rather particular when it comes to hotels? You will be sure to find something that ticks all your boxes here, with around 25 accommodation possibilities within an easy commute of Rice University. The Hotel Zaza Houston Museum District, 0.9 miles (1.4 kilometers) away, is one place to start looking. You may also like to check out the Houston Marriott Medical Center/Museum District, 0.6 miles (1.0 kilometer) away, and the Robin's Nest Bed and Breakfast Inn, 2 miles (3 kilometers) away.

A good sleep is even sweeter if it doesn't cost a fortune. Luckily enough, the Rodeway Inn And Suites Medical is only 1 mile (2 kilometers) away.

After a hectic day, rest your worn-out legs at a first-class hotel that's just a short drive away. The St. Regis Houston and Hotel Granduca Houston are ideal choices that are worth considering.

If you're feeling a bit frazzled from all your adventures, get yourself a much-needed caffeine hit at Rice Coffeehouse, just a brief walk away. If it's a larger meal that you're looking for, try Au Bon Pain, a nearby eatery that's popular with locals and travelers alike. Round out an excellent afternoon with a drink at Valhalla, also very close by, and be sure to raise a glass to your colleagues back at work.
