Houston continues to be an area of interest as Rosewood Hotels & Resorts announces plans to open Rosewood Houston…
Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been selected by McNair Interests to manage a new, ultra-luxury hotel in Houston. Set to open in 2023 in the city’s Uptown District, the hotel will be Rosewood’s second in Texas and their ninth in the United States.
The 150-room hotel will be located in an exclusive mixed-use and high-rise development led by McNair Interests, managed by the Patrinely Group and designed by architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP. In addition to the hotel, the six-acre site will include 80 luxury residences atop the hotel, multi-family residences, lifestyle-driven amenities, and retail and office space.
“Texas is the birthplace of the Rosewood legacy, which launched with the Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas in 1979, so we are thrilled to expand our presence in one of Texas’ most vibrant cities,” says Sonia Cheng, Chief Executive Officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Offering innumerable cultural attractions, a sophisticated culinary scene, and unparalleled shopping, Houston is a natural destination for Rosewood’s affluential explorers. Ideally situated in the Uptown District, Rosewood’s new property in Houston will serve as the ultimate urban retreat from which travelers can explore everything this exciting city has to offer.”
Boasting two distinct dining venues, including a full-service restaurant and a vibrant outdoor pool bar, the hotel will offer visitors a sophisticated urban dining experience. Guests will also have access to Sense, a Rosewood Spa, as well as an outdoor pool and fitness center. The property’s extensive meeting and events spaces will accommodate a variety of private gatherings, conferences and special events.
“This is a defining development for McNair Interests and the city of Houston,” said Cary McNair, Chairman and CEO of McNair Interests. “Our vision redefines the southernmost entrance of Post Oak Boulevard and the Uptown District, fusing a distinctive, sophisticated design with Houston’s future. We are excited for what this project will bring to our city and to visitors from around the world.”
The news that Rosewood Houston will open in 2023 follows statistics showing that more than 2,300 rooms will come online in the area in the next few years, which heavily suggests that Houston continues to be a major hot spot for travel, tourism and business travel.
