We all need a break once in awhile, specially if you’re married with children. Am I right?! So the hubs and I packed our bags left the kids with my sister and quickly planned a couple days to just relax, reset and have a little kid free fun.
So off we went to Houston where we stayed at the Marriott CityPlace for a quick couple getaway and to attend the wine fest and we loved it! The hotel is brand new, so it still has that amazing smell, everything is new and clean. The staff was incredibly attentive and sweet. They have a great pool that oversees a little lake and we saw lots of birds and it was gorgeous.
The restaurant is delicious, if you go you must try the one of their different kinds of queso, I had the gulf queso, which is full of crawfish and gulf shrimp and it was divine HUGE! so you can easily share with a ton of people. For the entree we shared the A la Brasa beef tenderloin and it was amazing, the beef was tender and the mushroom sauce was the perfect accompaniment and to stay in the Latin flare flavor combination we the grilled corn which was a bit tart and amazing! And to finish it off we got the deep fried brownie with Chantilly and it was heavenly.
We also took a walk down City Place with is right next door, they have shopping and the park has lots of sitting and is both romantic and relaxing. It’s the perfect place to take a walk, play with the kids or just take a book and enjoy the weather. It’s very well shaded so even in the summer months it would be a great place to have fun.
We will be back for sure!
