The Hilton Americas-Houston hotel has appeared on the list of top 100 hotels in the United States by Cvent, an industry-leading event management technology company, for the second time.

The list was ordered by analyzing group booking activity through the Cvent Supplier Network. Properties were ranked according to various criteria, including total requests for proposals (RFPs), awarded RFPs, total room nights, major metropolitan area (MMA) market share and response rate.

“I am really proud of our team,” says Jacques D’Rovencourt, hotel general manager. “It shows the staff’s pride, commitment and consistency in delivering great experiences for every guest and every event.”  

The downtown Houston hotel is hailed as a superb meetings and events space with 92,500 square feet of technologically advanced meeting space. Some features include digital reader boards in ballrooms and meeting rooms capable of displaying company logos and video presentations, and connectivity available from the hotel to the connected George R. Brown Convention Center for a seamless private network experience.  

The hotel also features rooftop lounges, a Starbucks, restaurants, lobby bars, and meeting spaces with long arched windows that look out to Green Discovery Park. It is located between the Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park. 

“Our spaces offer functionality for guests to be able to navigate through our meeting space with ease,” D’Rovencourt says. “The meeting space was designed based on the feedback we received directly from meeting planners.” 

Lake Austin Spa Resort is recognized by Condé Nast Traveler as the #2 Destination Spa Resort in the world and #1 Destination Spa Resort in the U.S. in the 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards. Adjacent from a nature preserve, the property is fixed among the Texas Hill Country. Located just outside of Austin with easy accessibility by water taxi or car, the resort is the only waterfront destination spa in the world.

The Austin Marriott Downtown is raising a glass to the completion of its structural framework, literally. Instead of raising the “final beam,” the hotel held a “topping-off” event where guests watched a large crane raise three Garrison Brothers bourbon barrels onto the hotel’s rooftop, in collaboration with local spirit masters Garrison Brothers Distillery.
