Located in the heart of the Central Business District, The Whitehall Hotel is a classic revival hotel, designed by Welton Becket and Associates, having first opened its doors in 1963.

In 2016, the property unveiled a $5 million renovation, as it rebranded from The Crowne Plaza Houston Downtown to The Whitehall. In addition to updating the hotel’s Brazos restaurant, the property renovations included updates to the 259 rooms, meeting spaces and common areas.

Conveniently located near the George R. Brown Convention Center, The Whitehall boasts its own elegantly designed meeting and venue spaces for business meetings, banquets, weddings and special celebrations. The property is also well-positioned to host large events, boasting more than 12,000 feet of flexible space.

Inside the revamped rooms, guests will find Tempur-Pedic mattresses, an ergonomic work desk, coffee/tea maker and in-room safes. Other features include 32-inch flat-screen televisions, complimentary wifi and complimentary premium movie channels. Beyond the room, guests can dine in the elegant, yet welcoming Brazos Restaurant, which offers a mash-up of southern fare and Mexican cuisine, or take a dip in the outdoor pool or workout in the 24-hour fitness center.

The Whitehall offers a complimentary shuttle throughout the Downtown area. Airport shuttle services are available on a regular basis at a nominal fee. Brazos Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, daily.
