Between working at the office, caring for children and falling into the never-ending tasks on your memo pad, life can be a whirlwind. If you’re in need of a glorious recharge, a weekend trip to one of the city’s best hotels should do the trick. Although it’s tempting to sink into those soft hotel beds with the curtains shut all day, unwinding at a tranquilizing hotel spa surpasses any relaxation that you’ll get in a suite. From a radiant face mask, overdue massages and dip in the wellness pool, the thoughts of Monday will repose as you recharge. Relax at five of Houston’s top hotel day spas for a stress-free stay.
