Urbane design and a clever lazy river define the unique style at this upscale hotel.
They say that everything’s bigger and bolder in Texas, and the Marriott Marquis Houston is no exception. The hotel’s soaring façade of glass and steel makes an impressive visual statement that continues well past curb appeal, from the geometric design of the massive lobby area to the groovy lazy river in the shape of Texas. The interior décor would feel more mid-century New York than Lone Star state were it not for the rich leather detailing throughout.
The contemporary guest rooms and suites show off an elegant look with a soothing color palette. Along with spacious bathrooms, they come with mini-fridges, 55-inch flat-panel TVs and custom-designed desks with ergonomic chairs. An attractive list of facilities includes a fitness center that stays open 24/7 and the full-service PURE spa. An impressive selection of dining venues can be found on-site. Biggio's is the spot to watch sports events, while Cueva offers a completely different mood with a menu of tapas and more than 200 wine varietals. In addition, Walker Street Kitchen serves Gulf Coast fare, and Xochi introduces diners to the cuisine of Oaxaca by way of chef Hugo Ortega. With more than 150,000 square feet of meeting and event space, this hotel is a natural choice for large-scale conferences.
