Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 97-room hotel recently went back to its original name, The Sam Houston Hotel. The boutique property, which opened in 1924 and reopened in 2002 as Alden Houston after a period of closure, completed an extensive renovation of the guest rooms, meeting spaces and the lobby.
New guest room amenities include free in-room Wi-Fi, Russian blue granite-walled bathrooms, sleek glass showers, 40” LED flat screen televisions and Herman-Miller ergonomic chairs. The hotel also features 7,000 square feet of event space, including the 2,400-square-foot rooftop Veranda.
The Sam Houston's award-winning restaurant, *17, offers an enticing variety of American cuisine paired with an extensive domestic and international wine list. And, in The Sam Bar, the hotel serves up old-school-inspired cocktails and an assortment of premium bites.
Sam Houston Hotel is walking distance from the downtown business district, George R. Brown Convention Center, local courthouses, Minute Maid Park, the Theater District, nightlife and the downtown light rail system.
