There are lots of these types of hose pots available with a hole for the hose and drainage, of course:
I've also seen folks do a DIY version with those "half wine barrels"
I am in favor of any nice container that hides the hose.
Costco has a nice bronze finish hose container similar to what Steve posted. Something like this is your best bet. The hose reels and plastic box reels never work for very long and are all ugly.
Lisa, I purchased an enclosed self re-winding style from Costco last year and have been very pleased. It's dark brown and looks like resin wicker though vinyl I'm sure.. No problems thus far.
