OMNI HOUSTON HOTEL COMPLETES $30 MILLION RENOVATION WELCOMING A MODERN LOOK AND NEW AMENITIES
HOUSTON (November 8, 2018)
– Omni Houston Hotel
has reopened its doors and is welcoming guests after undergoing a $30 million renovation that elevates the guest experience. The transformation positions the hotel as the perfect luxury oasis in the prestigious Uptown Houston area.
Embracing Houston’s culture and attitude, the design of the renovated spaces at the 378 guestroom Omni Houston Hotel begins on the first floor. The inspiration draws from an authentic local aesthetic that includes leather, bronze, brass and lush greens, providing a new take on a “modern Texas.” The urban oasis will welcome natural light throughout with floor‐to‐ceiling windows and open communal spaces. The lobby features a captivating moss wall behind three copper reception desks providing guests a warm welcome.
“Throughout this renovation, we collaborated with the design team to showcase Houston’s natural surroundings while also giving a nod to the city’s rich history,” said Laura McKoy, vice president of interior design and creative director for Omni Hotels & Resorts. “Each space is a testament to Omni’s ‘local flavor’ and you’ll see various colors, materials, textures and patterns highlighting this throughout the newly designed hotel.”
The first floor evolution continues throughout various public spaces including La Reserve whiskey lounge that pays homage to Houston’s history. COMMONCOLOR, a high-end retail venue, features treasures from What Goes Around Comes Around and showcases vintage handbags and jewelry from Chanel, Hermés, Louis Vuitton and more. The Lobby Library offers guests plush sofas, leather armchairs, a bookshelf wall and fireplace, which creates an inviting atmosphere. The overall aesthetic has clean lines that fuse rich and natural textures for a more residential feel. Birdies Cafe & Bar takes inspiration from Memorial Park’s lavish greenery while providing views of the outdoor landscape seen through floor‐to‐ceiling windows that line the venue. The restaurant is designed to encourage guests to gather, collaborate and socialize around the curved shaped bar for a communal feel.
The hotel’s iconic nightclub, Black Swan, also returns with a similar modern design, melting both luxury and timeless energy, providing guests a vibrant nightlife experience. Meeting space on the first and second floors were redesigned and include an additional 2,500 square feet of flexible meeting space. The property offers two new conference areas with boardrooms and breakout space.
Mokara Spa & Salon’s new aesthetic embodies nature as designers used soft, whitewashed woods and lush green walls. The use of stone, wood and dark metals throughout create a mix of texture and contrast. Treatment rooms exhibit earthy elements such as raw wood accents and stone and pebbles are weaved throughout to marry the spa with the natural outdoor landscape for a serene experience. As spa guests step out and enter the salon, they will see a more contemporary setting featuring a clean palette of white washed wood and bronze metal accents.
“Our new renovation allows us to amplify the excellent guest service we are known for,” said Allan Codore, general manager of Omni Houston Hotel. “We can’t wait to help create memorable experiences for our guests, regardless if they’re here for business, leisure or upcoming holiday travel.”
