The Ant Street Inn in downtown Brenham, offers the charm of a bed and breakfast with the amenities of a boutique hotel. Originally constructed as a mercantile in 1899, the building is now a showplace in the midst of downtown's shopping, restaurant, and theatre district. Fifteen luxury guest rooms with twelve foot ceilings, exposed brick walls, stained glass, polished wood floors, and private baths have been furnished in the most interesting collection of 19th century American antiques, including magnificent full and half canopy beds which serve as focal points in the rooms. All rooms include flat screen cable television, wireless high speed internet, and telephones with free local and long-distance calling. Breakfast is served in the award-winning Brenham Grill, a full-service restaurant right in our hotel's lobby.

Really enjoyed our one night stay at Ant Street Inn ( New Orleans room), the whole place has the older feel and touch, and we had a nice girls get away. Will definitely return when going to Brenham. The Owners were lovely and very personable. A place where you can independently go and come as you please.

There were 11 class members staying at the Ant Street Inn. We were welcomed by the owner and given a history of the Inn. He made us feel very comfortable. I think I can speak for all and say that we enjoyed our stay.
