by | 03 May 2022 | Design

Four Seasons Hotel Houston is celebrating its ruby anniversary with the completion of its multi-year, multi-million dollar transformation.

Signifying 40 years since it first opened, the legendary property is now offering guests a reimagined hospitality experience.

A new chapter

Four Seasons Hotel Houston has long been a celebrated gathering place for both locals and visitors to the city, hosting celebrities, politicians and business icons over the years. 

The property is just moments from leading entertainment and sports venues and a short journey from the Museum District.

“There’s no better way to celebrate our 40th anniversary than with the completion of the Hotel’s magnificent transformation,” said Tom Segesta, general manager of the hotel.

“Our downtown destination is now better than ever, and we’re looking forward to sharing more great experiences with our guests and our beloved city of Houston as we move forward.”

Reimagined and newly created spaces

In its initial phase, the hotel’s renovation included a transformation of the property’s lobby and arrival area, along with updates to the spa and fitness centre and the addition of newly created Bayou & Bottle, Bayou & Bean and Topgolf Swing Suites.

Having now reached completion, the full transformation has also seen the enhancement of the properties 289 guest rooms and suites and 12 specialty suites including presidential and penthouse suites designed by Rottet Studio, referencing big Texas skies and featuring custom-made furniture by Houston-based designer Eric Brand.

Also enhanced are the hotel’s 64 one-, two- and three-bedroom residential suites with full, modern kitchens, separate living areas, washers and dryers for longer stays.

New additions to the property at this completion stage include the award-winning Pan-Latin steakhouse, Toro Toro, from chef partner Richard Sandoval with the interiors of award-winning design firm Meyer Davis and the intimate, modern-day speakeasy, Bandista, reminiscent of a 1920s lounge with a decadent Latin vibe.

The hotel’s 16,500 sq ft of event space has also been fully reimagined and added to with a new Grand Ballroom. Completing the experience, the hotel is now home to the first Krigler perfume store in Texas as an apothecary-style boutique located inside the lobby.
