The Houston Marriott Medical Center/Museum District announced the completion of its multimillion-dollar renovation. Located in the city’s Museum District, the 398-room hotel refreshed its interiors and added new amenities. 

The hotel’s new event space, The Oak Room, can accommodate up to 30 guests and includes a private entrance and large screen television for presentations. The property added two new restaurants: Curate and Main & Green. Curate features American cuisine with a Texas flavor and offers cocktails, small plates and dinner. Main & Green serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with an emphasis on healthy, modern dishes. 

Houston Marriott Medical Center/Museum District has also introduced its 1,900-square-foot M Club. A private club with casual and banquette seating, it offers complimentary breakfast, bar service and evening hors d’oeuvres. In addition, the hotel redesigned its fitness center with new equipment and a renovated pool deck with lounge chairs and games such as cornhole and yard-size Jenga for after-meeting relaxation.  

Houston Marriott Medical Center/Museum District is located four miles from Downtown Houston and is adjacent to Rice Village and Rice University. The property is connected to Texas Medical Center via a skybridge and sits across from a MetroRAIL stop for quick transport to NRG Stadium or Downtown Houston. The hotel features 8,700 square feet of flexible meeting space, including a ballroom that accommodates up to 500 people and 12 breakout rooms.  These latest additions and upgrades mark the completion of its third and final phase of renovation. 

The Woodlands Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton has introduced new teambuilding activities for groups gathering at the resort. The experiences focus on wellness and recreation.

The new experiences include:

 

South by Southwest (SXSW) returned live this year! The 35-year-old festival infuses on average $16-plus million of consumer spending into the Austin music scene over the course of nine days. The festival returned in March after its cancellation in 2020 and virtual show in 2021. Both the cancellation and virtual show were prompted by health and safety concerns due to the pandemic.
