Downtown’s Melrose building, originally constructed in 1952, is being redeveloped as a Le Méridien, a Starwood Hotels and Resort luxury hotel brand. The building was Houston's first modern-style skyscraper and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Le Méridien will feature 225 guest rooms and 8,000 square feet of meeting space in its 21-story design. The luxury hotel brand with a European focus will add to the score of upscale hotels developing in Downtown Houston. Le Méridien’s pool and sundeck will join the many other Houston hotels that have opted for a rooftop patio design.
Construction on Le Méridien is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2017.
