Nothing says luxury like JW Marriott, and soon a new hotel in Houston will bear that luxurious name. Due to open in Spring of next year, the new hotel will emerge from the renovated ruins of the aging Samuel F. Carter Building, a move that will simultaneously revitalize the local area but maintain the city's cultural heritage.

Houston Mayor Annise Parker and Pearl Hospitality, the developer of the new JW Marriott Houston Downtown Hotel, announced today the building is undergoing renovations and will be open for business in Spring of 2014. The conversion of the historic Samuel F. Carter Building at 806 Main St. will support downtown growth, preserve a historic asset and provide much-needed hotel rooms while furthering Houston as a tourist and convention destination.

The new luxury hotel will feature 323 guest rooms, a restaurant and full-service bar, a spa, health club, an executive lounge, swimming pool and 10,000 square feet of meeting space.
