Humble Downtown hotels map
Humble, Downtown intro.Mostly used by passengers departing or arriving at nearby George Bush Intercontinental Airport, just over six miles to the west, Humble sits roughly 20 miles north of Houston. Like many cities in the state, this Texan community of 15,000 has an economy based on petroleum, an industry that superseded the timber trade in the early 20th century when oil was discovered locally. A largely insignificant location until the arrival of the nearby airport in the late 1960s, the town today features dozens of Humble City Center hotels that cater for the millions of passengers that choose to stay overnight here before or after flights. There is little in the way of tourist attractions in the city, which was once home to aviator Howard Hughes, with most visitors to the area travelling into Houston proper for sightseeing. In addition to domestic flights, George Bush Intercontinental Airport offers services to cities around the globe, including Paris, London, Tokyo and Dubai.
