JW Houston by The Galleria

Enhancements throughout the hotel showcase thoughtful design that ties
to historical, physical, and social elements of Houston
HOUSTON – Located within Houston’s thriving uptown epicenter, JW
Marriott Houston by The Galleria [1] recently unveiled the last
multi-million dollar renovation phase of the guest rooms, suites and
corridors to finalize the hotel’s complete transformation. The
enhancements join the refreshed meeting and public spaces, lobby and
executive lounge which was finished in 2019.
The revamped spaces reflect thoughtful design choices by Parker-Torres
Design that represents Houston’s rich history and culture, while
creating intentional transitions throughout the hotel’s interior.
Attention was given to creating spaces that enhance the guest experience
while also evoking a warm and welcoming environment.
“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,” says Kristen Emory, Senior Interior Designer
at Parker-Torres Design.

The dramatic re-imagination of the hotel fuses new carpet, wallpaper,
technology, lighting fixtures, furnishings, and locally curated art in
the top-to-bottom makeover. 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 notable changes in the
guest rooms include new 55-inch televisions and upgraded bedding options
from double beds to double queen beds. The transformation provides
leisure and business travelers with luxurious accommodations in a
refreshing environment.
The renewed property showcases a design that captures expressions of
Houston’s diverse history is built on the ship channel, railway system,
and oil and gas industry; the physical location of the hotel nestled
between the city’s most exclusive neighborhoods; and the redefinition
of the city’s traditional values into the rich culture and hub of
innovation that it currently represents.
