JW Marriott Houston by The Galleria completes guestroom renovations

JW Marriott Houston by The Galleria recently completed the last phase of its multimillion-dollar renovation, updating the guestrooms, suites and corridors to finalize the hotel’s transformation. The refreshed meeting and public spaces, lobby and executive lounge were finished in 2019. The revamped spaces reflect design choices by Parker-Torres Design that represent Houston’s history built on the ship channel, railway system, and oil and gas industry.

“JW Marriott Houston by The Galleria renovation incorporates thoughtful details that provide a mindful connection to the world around you while small-scale textures add interest and help create a relaxing, reflective environment,” Kristen Emory, senior interior designer at Parker-Torres Design, said in a statement.

The guestrooms have new carpet, wallpaper, technology, lighting fixtures, furnishings and locally curated art. Visual elements feature neutral yet rich tones, and mixed materials and textiles to represent the many cultures interlaced into the fabric of the city. Other changes in the guestrooms include new 55-inch televisions and upgraded bedding options from double beds to double queen beds.

Owned by Host Hotels & Resorts, JW Marriott Houston by the Galleria has 516 guestrooms; 41,500 square feet of meeting space; an outdoor pool with city views; a fitness center; the JW Market for coffee and snacks; and the Stray Horse Restaurant, which was revamped and reopened last summer. The hotel was originally constructed in 1984.
