Pasadena, Texas, United States, was named after the city of the same name in California due to its rich vegetation. It is the seventeenth most populous city in Texas and is located within the Houston–The Woodlands–Sugar Land metropolitan area. So, if you’re ever in this part of Houston and are looking for places to stay, here are some of my suggestions:
This hotel is close to the Pasadena attractions as well as Houston attractions. For example, NASA’s Johnson Space Center is less than 10 miles (16 kilometers) away. The rooms are comfortable, clean and cozy. There is an outdoor pool and spa, where you can sit out on the patio and soak up the hot Texas sun. What keeps people coming back to this place is the over the top customer service.
