Not everyone can afford this level of resort-style pampering, but if you can, we highly recommend that you experience the Trellis at least once while in H-Town. Located in the luxury Houstonian Hotel in the city’s upscale Galleria area, the Trellis is generally considered the most luxurious day spa in Houston. The Mediterranean-style spa spans 17,000 square feet and includes 21 treatment rooms, as well as a steam room and Jacuzzi. The picturesque 18-acre property that houses the hotel and spa can be viewed from a balcony, further adding to your resort-style relaxation. A couples treatment room is available with two treatment tables and a couples tub and shower. The staff here is experienced and highly professional, and only the best product lines are used, such as Decleor, Carita and Phytomer. Whether you’re looking for a massage, facial, body wrap, manicure, pedicure or relaxing Jacuzzi soak, you can get it here. For a full day of pampering, customized treatment packages are available, which also make great gifts. Packages for birthdays, bridal parties, business functions and other groups can also be purchased. For more details about services, pricing, hours or to book an appointment, call the spa or visit the Web site.
