Best Weekend Getaways

San Antonio – Hotel Havana

This historic River Walk hotel completed a chic renovation in early 2010, courtesy of Liz Lambert, who also made over Austin’s Hotel San José and Hotel Saint Cecilia. Expect pops of color in lacquered furniture mixed in with pieces that evoke Havana’s historic charm. It seems everything Lambert touches suddenly becomes the latest hotspot, and Hotel Havana is no different, making it the perfect girls’ getaway.

The Inn at Dos Brisas Houston

Houston – The Inn at Dos Brisas

With only four private guest casitas on more than 300 acres of trees, winding streams and wildflowers, The Inn at Dos Brisas is a luxury ranch-style resort that offers a perfect couple’s retreat just an hour outside of Houston. The Dos Brisas restaurant is one of only twenty U.S. restaurants to be awarded five stars by Forbes, and is the only one in Texas to receive the honor. Amenities include an infinity pool and a personal golf cart to explore the property.

Horseshoe Bay Resort Austin

Austin – Horseshoe Bay Resort

Horseshoe Bay was named Best Golf Resort in the Southern Region by Golf Magazine. And its three—yes, three—golf courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. have been featured in the “50 Best Courses in Texas” in the Dallas Morning News every year since 1989. So basically, Horseshoe Bay is the ultimate getaway for a guys’ weekend!

Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa

Austin – Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa

We have it on very good authority (ok, a celeb gossip site) that the Brangelina clan stayed here while Brad was shooting a movie in Texas. With so many activities, from horseback riding to archery to tubing in the Crooked River Pool, Lost Pines is the perfect family getaway. Not to mention the Wolfdancer golf course (named a Top 100 Course by Golfweek) and the luxurious Spa Django for mom and dad.
