Located northwest of Houston and northeast of Austin, College Station is home to Texas A&M, or Aggieland. The town of Bryan is next door, and together the two form the Bryan-College Station metro area. There is a real college-town feel here with shops, restaurants, entertainment, and of course, anything sports-related. Head there for a dose of Texan culture, a burgeoning nightlife and plenty of opportunities to stay active both indoors and outside. Book one of these top College Station hotels, available via Culture Trip.

Across the street from Texas A&M University in Century Square, an urban, mixed-use area full of stores, dining, and restaurants, these hotel rooms have a rustic feel—think leather headboards and wood panels. Terraces overlook some of the four acres of landscaped courtyards where outdoor activities abound, with lawn games, bicycle rentals, firepits, and an outdoor pool. Every weekend, they offer live music while you dine and sip a cocktail at the Canteen Bar & Grill.

2. The George, for refined rustic rooms

This College Station hotel reflects the era when these Texan parts were known as old rail stops, with rooms and communal areas lined with rustic and historic décor. Located in Century Square, near College Station’s main attractions, take your key card from the hotel to enjoy discounts at local businesses such as 10 percent off food options like Paris Crepe & Café, spa services, and movies. If you want to spend a night in, enjoy local spirits at the elegant 1791 whiskey bar and catch one of many live events on display here.

3. Courtyard Bryan College Station, for outdoor pool time close to the stores

Located in the southeast area of College Station, the Courtyard is located in a shopping district close to the George Bush Museum at College Station. Sleep well in rooms and suites with pastel feature walls, many with balconies, before sliding into the hotel’s Bistro for a morning Starbucks or morning eggs over easy – if you like it that much, return for dinner. For relaxation, spend some time under the Texan sun in the seasonal outdoor pool, surrounded by well-tended lawns.

4. Hilton College Station & Conference Center, for classic comfort

Close to the college and the Northgate area of College Station, stay in classic, red-themed rooms near Kyle Field and the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library. Don’t worry about parking or taxis as the shuttle service will take you around town. Later, hit the pool deck overlooking a cooling waterfall and hot tub before a cocktail at Gallery Bar before tucking into Southern and Southwestern fare such as steaks at Bell Ranch.

If you’re visiting college friends, they’ll love the first-floor lounge that offers free wi-fi and the WXYZ bar for catching up over coffee and cocktails. Make memories in the outdoor splash pool before hitting the nearby bars and restaurants.

Dine at Proper Texas Kitchen on locally sourced Texas ingredients or at Block T Bar & Grill for a pint of Texas brew and a serving of spicy wings while watching the game.

Bush. After resting up in inky blue and beige-colored suites, sleeping four to six, you’ll love the hearty meals at the Saber Bar & Grill. You’re in Texas, so order a large, juicy steak and a loaded baked potato. Before heading out, enjoy a light complimentary evening reception with wines and small bites.
