Houston college visit--need lodging advice, tips

Jump to last reply

Hi, we will be visiting Houston to see Rice University next month. Suggestions of where to stay or not to stay near the university? How close should I be and are there areas near Rice to avoid? If anyone has done PL or Hotwire, for Houston, any suggestions.

I will have the evening of the overnight and then the two of us will have another afternoon/evening free as well. Suggestions appreciated!

Should I rent a car or get a hotel with a shuttle to the airport? We are flying home early morning on a weekend day--should we move to a hotel by the airport? The negative is that it's extra hassle to move lodgings and cuts into our visiting time the day before.

Thanks for all advice!
