After undergoing a multi-million dollar transformation, the Hilton Houston Post Oak Hotel guest rooms are completed. The updates include a modernized bathroom, with marble floors and glass showers, new curtains and updated bedding.

“Our enrichments will further set us apart from our competition, solidifying Hilton Houston Post Oak as the premiere hotel choice for guests seeking an exceptional visit to Houston,” says Jay Campbell, general manager. “We are excited to share our new look with our customers as we had their comfort and ease in mind when designing this project.”

The hotel also added more advanced technology, including a digital key lock system, which can be requested through the HHonors app. Through the app, guests can check in and select their room. Additionally, once guests arrive, they may virtually unlock their room through the app once they are 5 feet from door.

“Many of our loyal HHonors members are business travelers who are incredibly tech-savvy,” says Campbell. “We’re thrilled our hotel is able to offer them this cutting edge Digital Key technology and give them an easier, more convenient stay.”

Along with these renovations, the hotel also updated its fitness center and pool deck. By the end of the year, the hotel expects to finish updating the grand ballroom, meeting spaces and their Executive Level Lounge and Presidential/Hospitality Suites.

The Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) led a coalition of business groups and their communities to drive support to the industry, for SB 8, the federal pandemic relief bill that included $180 million for local hospitality and tourism businesses.
