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.

The Sheraton Dallas Hotel, a Marriott International property, has announced the commencement of a multimillion dollar renovation of the downtown Dallas hotel and convention property.

The Sheraton’s location in the downtown Dallas Arts District has made it a favorite gathering place for businesses and venue for social gatherings.

 

Texas Live!, Arlington’s new $1 billion entertainment complex officially opened on August 9. The Texas Rangers, The Cordish Companies and the City of Arlington project, located between the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park and the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium will also feature several new options for meetings and event planners, including 35,000-square-feet of meeting, event and convention space.

 

This August, the new Doug Pitcock ’49 Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center will be open to the public holding a new membership in IACC. This credential, better known as the International Association of Conference Centers, is an elite acknowledgement of stellar service and hospitality. As the only international association representing small-to-medium-sized venues, this membership includes thought leaders of the meetings and events industry.
