Even in a state known for big things, Houston is an exceptionally big city. Named after the legendary Sam Houston, this is the fourth largest city in the United States and an amazing place to visit on business or for pleasure. Second only to New York City for hosting the headquarters of Fortune 500 companies, Houston has a strong, diverse economy. Home to major operations of five of the six supermajor energy producers, Houston is considered by some to be the energy capital of the world. As if this international notoriety weren't enough, Houston is also home to the Texas Medical Center, the world's largest concentration of healthcare and research institutions. For a somewhat more traditional tourist experience, join the nearly seven million culture-seekers who annually visit Houston's Museum District. Here you will find the Museum of Fine Arts, featuring classic art, a sculpture garden and the Bayou Bend exhibit of uniquely American art. For the lover of non-traditional art, there is the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. Houston has no shortage of great places to visit while you stay at our several Extended Stay America locations in Houston. We look forward to hosting you with a big smile and free W-Fi in all rooms.
