The Post Oak Hotel in Uptown Houston is known for its impeccable service, luxurious spa, and delectable culinary offerings (including a wine cellar that boasts libations dating back to the 1800s). It is Texas’ only Forbes Double Five-Star rated hotel, after all. With a two-story Rolls-Royce showroom and a multi-million-dollar art collection throughout the property, the Post Oak Hotel exudes luxury. 

The holiday season, the luxury and lavishness continue with the hotel’s expansive holiday schedule bringing the magic of the season to everyone of all ages.

The hotel offers something for all ages this holiday season.

Make It Personal

Personalized experiences are at the heart of The Post Oak Hotel’s identity. This holiday season, you can reserve Stella’s Wine Bar, The Cellar, or the Forbes Five-Star Spa for a private environment — allowing guests to relax and socialize in a more intimate setting.

From the spa all to yourselves (including a personalized treatment, food and beverage menu, and personalized bathrobes) to a private holiday chalet experience with a Master Sommelier at Stella’s Wine Bar, make it a December to remember for your crew.

Holiday Chalet

You can discover the transformation of Stella’s Wine Bar into a holiday chalet apart from a private event, as well. Enjoy many holiday-themed cocktails or your favorite glass of wine while you browse an assortment of special gift items ranging from home goods to your favorite wines and accoutrements. Live music on Sundays and Wednesdays.


Afternoon holiday tea is your next family tradition – trust us.

Holiday Afternoon Tea at Bouchée

There’s just something magical about holiday afternoon tea. Maybe it’s the finger sandwiches, maybe it’s the Prosecco. Transport yourself to a Parisian patisserie during the holidays with Afternoon Tea at Bouchée. Offering a selection of finger sandwiches, scones, and desserts, guests can enjoy these French-inspired delicacies with family and friends while creating a new beloved holiday tradition. 

Reservations are required.

Under the Mistletoe Saturdays

Hotel guests can embrace the magic this holiday season in The Post Oak Hotel’s marvelously decorated lobby with live music, hand-passed hors d’oeuvres, and holiday cocktails. They’ll also have a holiday cart where you can snag unique gifts for those very special family members and friends. Consider your holiday shopping complete!
