• The Woodlands Resort Joins Curio Collection

    POSTED November 21, 2021

The Woodlands Resort will soon become the first Curio Collection by Hilton branded resort in Texas. Along with its January 4, 2022 transition to the upscale portfolio, the 402-room, AAA Four Diamond property with 75,000 square feet of indoor meeting and event space is slated for an extensive program of enhancements projected to begin in the second quarter of 2022. 

Among the key areas of capital focus are health and wellness, food and beverage and outdoor events. Existing amenities include two championship golf courses, a bike and kayak fleet, the Forest Oasis Lazy River & Waterpark, a tennis center with 21 courts, the Back Table Kitchen & Bar, and direct access to 200-plus miles of trails.

The resort's 10,000-square-foot spa will be the beneficiary of a top-to-bottom makeover, and the fitness facility will be expanded and modernized with state-of-the-art equipment. A new lobby bar with water views, gourmet grab-and-go and specialty market will join upgrades to existing restaurant and bar spaces. In addition, the 3,000-square-foot Forest Deck, overlooking Lake Harrison, will be transformed as an alfresco venue for meetings, ceremonies and receptions. 


Keep your eye on the skyline of Austin. The sustainably focused hotel brand, 1 Hotels, is coming to a mixed-use hotel, residential and retail project currently under construction at the meeting of Waller Creek and Lady Bird Lake. The property will be the tallest tower in Texas and will overlook the historic Rainey Street district.  


Located on the River Walk, the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk has completed its $38 million renovation just in time for its 40thanniversary. The renovation broke ground in December 2021. The hotel’s 602 guestrooms and 28 suites were redesigned to reflect an upscale urban experience.  


The City of Bryan has announced that Jamie Cox will be the general manager of the Legends Event Center, a 122,300-square-foot indoor event facility scheduled to open in late 2022. Most recently, Cox served as general manager of the Publix Sports Park in Panama City Beach, Florida.
