Houston is very spread out and it can be challenging to get around the city without a car. The FotoFest hotel headquarter in downtown Houston is, however, centrally located near Houston’s MetroRail system and bus stops.
The Museum District and the DoubleTree Hotel can be reached by MetroRail. For more information click here.
The city’s principal theatre, opera, ballet, and symphony are also located in downtown. Restaurants, stores, Discovery Green Park and Buffalo Bayou Park are within walking distance of the DoubleTree hotel.
Houston has recently unveiled a public bicycle share program, Houston Bcycle, with station across Downtown, Midtown, Montrose and the Museum District. A Bcycle stand is conveniently located just blocks from the DoubleTree.
