Texas Medical Center Hotel Caters to Families in Need of Fall Break

Even though summer is over and the kids are back in school, the Houston Marriott at the Texas Medical Center has just what the doctor ordered for families looking to have a little fun while saving some cash over a weekend.

Parents can find deluxe accommodations starting at $144 per night with the Houston Medical Center hotel’s Children’s Museum package. The deal, which must be booked stat, includes two admission tickets to the Children’s Museum of Houston plus a healthy complimentary breakfast for two. Free transportation to the museum will save parents the frustration of trying to find and having to pay for parking while giving kids more time to explore.

Guests can spend an entire day checking out 90,000 square feet of interactive exhibits geared for youths but also fun for the young at heart. Whether kids (or adults) climb the 35-foot tall PowerTower, go on a quest to save cyberspace from an evil hacker or explore the wet and wild world of hydropower, there will surely be learning going on in each of the 14 galleries. A special TotSpot catering to kids 35 months and under features tons of mirrors, knobs, switches and door bells designed to hold the attention and interest of all little ones. The museum also features the Fresh CafĂ©, serving nutritious treats, fresh salads, preservative-free breads and vegetarian options at prices that won’t give parents a serious heart attack. An onsite gift shop sports educational toys and games for under $10.

Explorers can then rest their tired feet and challenged brains at the Medical Center Marriott, one of the recently renovated hotels in Houston, TX. Parents will enjoy the casual elegance that awaits them once they step foot into one of 373 rooms featuring luxurious bedding, down comforters and custom duvets. And, because the facility is one of a few pet-friendly hotels near Reliant Stadium, families can bring their beloved Fido along with them for the weekend getaway. The excitement of other amenities such as wireless high-speed Internet, complimentary coffee, mini-refrigerators and irons and ironing boards will surely raise guests’ pulses in a positive way.

After a solid night’s slumber, Mom, Dad and the kids can grab an affordable healthy meal when taking advantage of the Houston hotel deal’s complimentary breakfast for two at Driscoll’s. The casual, onsite restaurant features regionally inspired cuisine that is made to order. Mouthwatering menu items that will tempt any palate include grilled breakfast burritos, steak and eggs, Texas hash and a Southwest scrambled skillet.

The Children’s Museum package is only available Thursday through Sunday through Oct. 31, so folks should book now using promotional code EB5.
