Welcome to Robin’s Nest. We have ten guest rooms, two with deep whirlpools for two for our honeymooners or business travelers after a hard days’ work:  Barbara Joyce’s Room and  Cindy’s Room. Four of the 10 are suites or apartments suitable for extended and long-term stays: Linda Lee’s Townhouse, Robert’s Retreat, Beverly’s Treehouse, and The Montrose Suite.

Our rates range from $149- $285 a night plus hotel tax. We discount rates for extended stays.  Economical lodging for Houston’s temporary apartment housing and long-term stays in the Museum and Arts District, in the inner city, also called Montrose.  Excellent jogging and walking for runners.

We are adjacent to Houston’s downtown/mid-town, the Museum and Arts District (Museum Fine Arts, Contemporary Arts, Menil, Rothko Chapel), major universities (Rice, University of Houston, U. of St. Thomas, South Texas Law) and the Texas Medical Center (M.D. Anderson, Methodist, Texas Children’s).

We have two breakfast services:  They are: Continental (self serve) or Full Breakfast (full service). We buy or grow fresh, whole foods.  During the week breakfast is from 8 – 9.  On the weekends we kick back an hour: 9 – 10 a.m.,  so guests can sleep in.  See: Ahhh, Breakfast.

The Second Nest, 705 W. Main

Montrose (the Museum and Arts District) is one of the few neighborhoods in Houston where one can exist blissfully without a car. Public transportation includes Metro Light Rail and/or Bus system. From the airports you can take the Blue Van Shuttle. Being in the inner city, taxis are ample. Two of our apartments have private garages, the remainder have street parking.

Museums, art galleries, parks, the Westheimer bar scene, restaurants (casual to starred) are walkable. We’re one to three miles from the Houston Opera, The Hobby Center, Alley Theater, Minute Maid Park,  the Toyota Center, and the Texas Medical Center.  We’re across the street from the High School for Performing and Visual Arts

We love and accept children and pets. We ask that they be well behaved and well attended. Please see our Pet Page for our four-legged children.Why go to an impersonal court house for your wedding/holy union or try to fill a huge reception hall? Our Weddings / Holy Unions., range from the two of you to 50.  For just the two of you, it’s $950 and $30 per guest for the wedding ceremony only. This rate includes the judge or minister, wedding music, a one-night complementary stay (whirlpool for two), champagne (alcoholic or non) and our signature chocolate covered strawberries. If you don’t want to stay over night, the cost is $890 and $30 per guest. The wedding reception is a separate event and cost.

The Staff.

Houston hotel accommodations are typically very good. However, once a good bed and breakfast has been discovered, the guest usually converts. Robin’s Nest consists of three historical houses (c. 1898, 1920 and 1938) setting side by side in Houston’s Montrose Museum District. Our lush gardens are native Gulf Coast flora. Come see us in the heart of Houston. Welcome to your Nest.
