JW Marriott Houston by The Galleria, a luxury hotel situated in the heart of Houston’s bustling uptown district, unveiled the final phase of a multimillion-dollar renovation project that transformed the guest rooms, suites, and corridors. This renovation complements the 2019 refurbishment of the meeting and public spaces, lobby, and executive lounge.
The hotel’s new look reflects Houston’s rich history and culture through a design by Parker-Torres Design intended to provide guests with a warm and welcoming environment. The hotel’s top-to-bottom makeover includes new carpet, wallpaper, technology, lighting fixtures, furnishings, and locally curated art. The design features neutral yet rich tones, mixed materials, and textiles that represent the diverse cultures that have contributed to the city’s fabric. The guest rooms feature new 55-inch televisions and upgraded bedding options, from double beds to double queen beds, providing leisure and business travelers with upscale accommodations in a refreshing environment.
“We are absolutely thrilled to provide such a warm space to welcome guests,” Ramon Ventura-Guzmán, General Manager at JW Marriott Houston by The Galleria, says in a prepared statement. “The enhancements will surely add to the memorable experiences and restful nights we have offered travelers visiting Houston for almost 40 years in this location.” The hotel, owned by Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc., boasts 516 guest rooms and offers 41,500 square feet of meeting space.
Guests can take advantage of the property’s outdoor pool with beautiful Houston city views, a fitness center with cardio and weight training equipment, JW Market for coffee and snacks, and the hotel’s popular Stray Horse Restaurant. The restaurant, which was revamped and reopened last summer, serves Texan-Latin fusion cuisine in a refined southwest setting. The hotel has been a community landmark and an integral component of the Galleria, Uptown, Post Oak, and Memorial Park and Greenway Plaza neighborhoods since it was originally constructed in 1984.
