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.” 

Available through the end of August, Texican Court plans to beat the summer heat with its first-ever poptail program. 

The poptail, which combines premium spirits and popsicles, was introduced at Valencia Hotel Group properties back in 2016. Texican Court, the group’s boutique hotel, is thrilled to join the summer fun by adding the poptail program to its seasonal menu. 

 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
