The new Crowne Plaza Houston Galleria Area hotel has recently opened in Houston, in the US.

The 207-room hotel, which opens having just completed a £13 million renovation project, is a part of the Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resorts group, a subsidiary of the UK-based owner, manager and franchiser of hotels and resorts, InterContinental Hotels Group PLC.

The hotel accommodation includes 29 regular suites, two presidential suites, and three hospitality suites. It also features an outdoor heated pool and cabana bar, a fitness centre, and a business centre.

Mark Peck, the hotel general manager, said, ‘It’s exciting to be opening as a Crowne Plaza hotel in an area that is so conveniently located. The Crowne Plaza brand is well-regarded for providing guests with a unique upscale experience that appeals to quality-minded business and leisure travellers.’

The hotel dining venue is The Red Oak Room Restaurant and Lounge, offering American cuisine served in a casual environment. For meetings and events, the hotel has around 14,000 square feet of refurbished meeting space on offer, including 10 meeting rooms and two ballrooms. Wireless high-speed Internet service is available free to members of the Priority Club loyalty programme.

Gina LaBarre, the company vice president of Americas Brand Management, said, ‘We’re pleased to bring our seventh Crowne Plaza hotel to the Houston area in such a convenient location for business and leisure travellers. There are several major employers in the area that will benefit from the meetings-savvy products and services that only a Crowne Plaza provides.’
