Hotel Information

SOCALLT 2016 (April 8-9) Hotels

As we are a small organization and could not afford the possible penalties associated with under-booked room blocks, instead, we offer you suggested hotels here. There is no official conference hotel, conference discount code, or block of rooms available. Please book your rooms as soon as possible, as downtown Houston hotels can fill up fast.

Closest & Suggested Options

HOTEL ICON: The closest option is the Hotel Icon. It’s in walking distance from campus (take Main Street heading north). Rooms are $239 a night and up. Visit their site HERE to reserve. Their address is 220 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002. Phone: 713.224.4266.

LANCASTER: Another nearby option is the Historic Lancaster Hotel ($270 and up). It’s not quite as close to campus, but still walkable. Visit their site HERE to reserve. Their address is 701 Texas Avenue, Houston, TX 77002. Phone: 713.228.9500.

SPRINGHILL SUITES: A more affordable option, but a longer walk (light rail recommended), is the Springhill Suites by Marriott ($135 and up). Dallas Street intersects with Main Street, and this location is also conveniently located along the light rail, making getting to and from campus very easy for $1.25 a ride. Visit their site HERE to reserve. Their address is 914 Dallas Street, Houston, TX 77002. Phone: 713.655.0002.

There are, of course, several other hotels in the downtown area. Visit THIS link for other options for hotels that are all south of the University of Houston-Downtown but still in the downtown area.

While you’re downtown, check out one of its most unique features, the Downtown Houston Tunnel System, an air-conditioned network of underground tunnels connecting much of this part of the city. Visit THIS link for a map.
