Contemporary comforts make this hotel a favorite with business and leisure travelers.
A $22 million Marriott makeover brought this hotel a contemporary look and some nice extras, such as Rooms That Work (geared to business travelers) and wireless connectivity. The ten-story atrium, a seven-foot-tall cowboy-and-horse sculpture and a solid location in a well-known Houston shopping district make this property a hot spot for conventions, business meetings and social occasions. Shoppers can be found in the restaurants and lounge either stoking their engines for a day in the stores or resting their feet after a long day. The 534 guest rooms including 66 suites have been brightened up to give them a modern appeal. Amenities include telephone with message alert, voicemail and data ports. Guests can also enjoy the use of PlayStations. For working out, the fitness facilities include a weight room, sauna, tennis courts and indoor/outdoor swimming pool.
