Short Cuts: Give Us Your Tired, Your Jet-Lagged...
Comforts Far From Home


International travelers will find home-away-from-home comforts awaiting them at the 485-room InterContinental Houston. Upon check-in, guests are offered jet-lag recovery kits with aromatherapy products and tips on how to overcome the wooziness. Also on hand are packs of about US$25 in small denominations, which can be billed to the guest’s room; included is a guide to local tipping and customs.

The hotel also offers a selection of newspapers and multilanguage TV programming from around the world, as well as international power and phone jacks in sleeping rooms. Printers and fax machines, guaranteed to be compatible with any equipment a guest brings in, are available.

Best of all: Six Continents Club members and club-level guests are entitled to a complimentary 15-minute massage. The property has more than 50,000 square feet of meeting space.
