Hi - coming to Houston in 2 weeks, and looking to stay a little south of downtown, but still at a hotel where I can walk to the metro rail line. Looking for a decent hotel - up to $100/night. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

That is a tough question. I'm not aware of any hotels on the rail line anywhere near where you are talking about. You would probably be better off renting a car and getting a motel room on US 59 (Southwest Freeway). It's only a few minute drive from the area you described.

Well, there's Hotel ZaZa in the Museum District and a few others in the Medical Center farther along the line. Don't know about rates. Why south of downtown? There are quite a few hotels downtown near the rail line on Main.

". . and looking to stay a little south of downtown. . "
Not real sure why that (little south of downtown) is your preference but if you want to be near the light rail line I agree with houstoner. The rail line runs through the Museum District and the Texas Medical Center. There are numerous hotels in that area. That area is basically southwest of downtown, 3-4 miles but 10-15 minutes by rail.

I found several using orbitz.com, Houston hotels, and click on "Museum District, Medical Center, Reliant Park". Several should meet your $100/night requirement.

Also, Google Earth (FREE at More Google Products) shows numerous hotels in and near the downtown area.
