Expert Tip. The Alden Houston's restaurant, 17, is named after the number of railroads that, on the eve of the Civil War, met here, deeming Houston the hub for the Texas railroad system. The recent renovation of this hotel is one of a dozen in downtown Houston pumping life back into the historic area.
