Houston Airport Marriott at George Bush Intercontinental undergoes renovation

Houston Airport Marriott at George Bush Intercontinental is nearing the completion of the first phase of a multimillion-dollar renovation of the 573-room hotel. Both South and North Tower guestrooms and meeting rooms are undergoing total renovation, with South Tower scheduled for completion in May 2015. The upgrades of North Tower rooms and public areas are scheduled for completion by fall of 2015.

Upon completion, the guestroom upgrades will introduce an updated contemporary design with streamlined casegoods, enhanced lighting, luxury linens and transitionally styled carpet and window coverings. The new casegoods package will give the rooms a more spacious look and feel. The custom-designed headboards will incorporate the latest technological conveniences with task lighting, electric outlets and USB capabilities. High-speed wireless Internet access and 47-inch LCD TVs will be room standard with the renovation. Bathrooms will be completely redone with new plumbing fixtures, stone counters, larger mirrors, enhanced lighting and sliding barn door-style doors added to increase floor space in the dressing area.

The 34 meeting rooms of the premier airport hotel, offering 30,000 square feet of total meeting space, will also be updated with new furnishings, carpet and wall covering and will feature the latest in technology. Meeting room and event spaces will be outfitted with audiovisual systems.
