Urban Leasing

*Photo provided by Urban Leasing

Today, we're doing things a little differently.  A representative of Urban Leasing contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in sharing a photo with you.  When I browsed their website and saw the picture, I was happy to help!  According to their website, Urban Leasing is "...a new-breed of agency who knows Houston's top properties inside and out."  They specialize in helping people find a Houston area townhouse, condo, apartment, or loft to call home.  

This panoramic picture of our beautiful skyline and Buffalo Bayou was taken from a downtown loft.  Can you imagine waking up to this view every morning?  I could get used to that!

Have a great weekend!

Portico at West 8

These apartments, the Portico at West 8, are located near Westheimer and Beltway 8 in the Westchase District on the southwest side of town.  I just love the look of these apartments and you can't beat the location!

Bird's Eye View of the Red Cat Jazz Cafe'

During our Anniversary weekend, we enjoyed a nice evening at the Red Cat Jazz Cafe' downtown.  We listened to beautiful renditions of the classics such as Etta James' "At Last" and Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine"! 

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Hotel Icon

Hello, everyone...I've missed you!  I have a few pictures I'd like to share with you within the next few days.

My amazing husband and I spent our One-Year Wedding Anniversary at Hotel Icon located downtown recently.  It was the first time either of us had stayed there and we were really impressed with the decor, the lavishness, and the food!  I took this picture on the spur of the moment (with my iphone) in the lobby.  I love the chic drapery, the modern lighting, and the overall feel of the room.

According to the hotel's website, the bank building was built in 1911 and was subsequently occupied by Union National Bank.  The building was renovated into the beautiful hotel it is today for around $35 Million!

Need a place to stay downtown?  Give Hotel Icon a try!
