Tilman J. Fertitta has announced the opening of The Post Oak at Uptown Houston—the newest luxury destination and singular mixed-use development that caters to business and leisure travelers.

Set on 10 acres by The Galleria and River Oaks District, this 38-story tower has new design, art collections, technology, fashion, and restaurants.

The Post Oak has 250 guestrooms and suites; 20 executive residences; and a 35,000-square-foot conference facility, including the largest ballroom in the Uptown Houston area.

Before their arrival, guests will be contacted to ensure their needs are met during their stay at the hotel including preferred room temperature, allergy notifications and any necessary travel arrangements.

“We want our guests stay to be luxuriously effortless,” said Jorge Gonzalez, general manager, The Post Oak Hotel. “From the moment they step in to our lobby, it is our top priority to ensure they receive a personalized and unique experience.”

While the standard guestroom offers 500 square feet of living space, the 5,000-square-foot, two-bedroom Presidential Suite has private elevator access, a media room, kitchen, dining area, an exercise room, outdoor patio and wraparound terrace.

Fertitta, Chairman, CEO, and sole owner of Landry’s, Inc., Golden Nugget Casinos and the Houston Rockets always wanted to design a vertically integrated, mixed use development like The Post Oak.

“Houston has never had a property like this and I wanted to be the one to deliver it,” said Fertitta. “The Post Oak will stand up to the world’s best hotels. Guests will see the attention to detail we put into every touchpoint and the level of luxury they will not find anywhere else in Houston. It will certainly be a game changer.”

The Post Oak Hotel offers accommodations including a two-story Rolls Royce auto showroom; a lobby with art by artist Frank Stella, two different sized ballrooms, a 20,000-bottle wine cellar, 11 stories of office space, a designer retail boutique, chic salon, spa, fitness center, a boardroom, business center and library.

Event attendees at the George R. Brown Convention Center (GRB) will now be able to enjoy coffee from the first robotic, connected coffee service in Houston—the Coffee Haus, located across from the Marriott Marquis Houston’s skywalk. Houston First, which owns and operates the GRB, and its hospitality team powered by Levy, Houston Inspired Catering, have partnered with Austin-based Briggo to implement this service.

 

The Perot Museum of Nature and Science recently hosted its annual fundraising gala, Night at the Museum: Rock the Perot, on Saturday, Nov. 10. All five levels of the museum were packed with experiences designed to “rock the senses,” from magnificent minerals, to neon-lit prehistoric giants, live music by The Bridgwater Orchestra and food from Wolfgang Puck Catering.

 

The Rose Hotel Chicago O’Hare, Tapestry Collection by Hilton officially opened this holiday season on November 15 while honoring veteran Elizabeth O’Byrne in conjunction with Veterans Day. O’Byrne and her family received the first guest special experience at the hotel’s grand opening event.
