328 Room JW Marriott Houston Downtown Now Open

JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts and Pearl Hospitality, one of Texas’ leading hotel development and management companies, officially opened the 328-room JW Marriott Houston Downtown.


Located on 806 Main Street, the hotel is housed in the historic, 104-year-old Samuel F. Carter Building and is the JW Marriott brand’s first adaptive reuse project in Texas and its second property in Houston. To celebrate the iconic opening, JW Marriott worked with celebrity event planner and brand partner Colin Cowie to create an interactive grand opening celebration filled with live performance art, memorable culinary experiences and headline entertainment so guests can see, touch and taste their way through the new property.

The exclusive party will take place the evening of Wednesday, November 19. Artfully designed by Gensler, the hotel is inspired by Houston’s rich heritage and modern attitude. It beautifully incorporates the building’s original design elements, including the hot-riveted steel beams, into sleek, welcoming spaces. The luxurious guest rooms, exquisitely crafted cuisine, the first Spa by JW worldwide, a curated art collection and its central location on Main Street, make JW Marriott Houston Downtown the new heart of downtown Houston’s hospitality.
