A multimillion-dollar renovation to the guest rooms has been completed at the 516-room JW Marriott Houston by the Galleria.
Revamped by Parker-Torres Design, attention was given to creating spaces that enhance the guest experience while evoking a warm and welcoming environment.
“The JW Marriott Houston by the Galleria renovation incorporates thoughtful details that provide a mindful connection to the world around you, while small-scale textures add interest and help create a relaxing, reflective environment,” said Kristen Emory, senior interior designer for Parker-Torres.
New carpet, wallpaper, technology, lighting fixtures, furnishings and locally curated art were used in the top-to-bottom makeover. The guest rooms now sport 55-inch televisions and upgraded bedding options, from double beds to double queen beds.
“JW Marriott Houston by the Galleria stands at the crossroads of multiple important neighborhoods, and we take our commitment to hospitality very seriously,” said Ramon Ventura-Guzmán, general manager of the property. “The enhancements will surely add to the memorable experiences and restful nights we have offered travelers visiting Houston for almost 40 years.”
Chef Julio Cesar Valdivia sources local and foraged ingredients for his versions of classic Texas dishes at the Stray Horse Restaurant, which was revamped and reopened last summer. The hotel also offers 41,500 square feet of meeting space, an outdoor pool with Houston city views, a fitness center with cardio and weight-training equipment, and the JW Market for coffee and snacks. Upgrades to the event and public spaces, the lobby and the executive lounge were finished in 2019.
