Midland, Texas, is most famous for two things: as the former home of the Bush family and as a major hub for the oil industry. Located in the Permian Basin oil fields, its natural resources have seen an economic boom of epic proportions. But while the city’s inhabitants may be the second richest in the US – after Connecticut’s stockbroker belt – you don’t have to splash the cash yourself. Get one of these Midland hotel deals and you’ll sleep easy, knowing you’re getting a great deal – bookable on Culture Trip.
