The Post Oak Hotel

Lucchese

Beginning tomorrow, Feb. 25, and running through March 18, The Post Oak Hotel hosts a pop-up rodeo lounge from 4-8pm nightly. To kick things off, arrive early on Feb. 25 for a family friendly petting zoon (12-2pm) and live music (2-6pm).

In the lounge, attendees can feast on Texas BBQ fare from King Ranch Texas Kitchen and sip on special Rodeo-themed cocktails and hand-picked Texas wines — all while shopping the latest Western-wear styles from King Ranch and Lucchese. Shoppers can also receive a complimentary boot shine and hat steaming.

In addition to the exclusive lounge and retail experience, The Post Oak Hotel’s Rodeo package includes round-trip transportation, complimentary cocktails and coveted Cookoff tickets (Feb. 24-25).

Blossom Hotel

In the Med Center, the oh-so-chic Blossom Hotel has a straightforward and super convenient Rodeo package. For the duration of the Rodeo, guests can enjoy a discounted room rate, complimentary self parking, two free cocktails, and a $20 Lyft credit to make getting to the nearby NRG Center as simple as possible.

Royal Sonesta

The Galleria-area Royal Sonesta's Roundup package includes Texas-themed welcome gifts — a bucket of beer and beef jerky, naturally — plus breakfast for two and free self-parking. Those who show their HLSR ticket at the bar can get half-off any food item with the purchase of a Texas beer.
