Hyatt Announces Opening of Thompson Houston

Hyatt Hotels has announced the opening of Thompson Houston, overlooking the Buffalo Bayou Park. This marks the fourth Thompson Hotels’ property in Texas—joining those in Austin, Dallas and San Antonio—and the 19th Thompson Hotels property globally.

Designed by HOK, Thompson Houston has 172 guestrooms, including 34 suites, with floor-to-ceiling windows, custom-made furnishings and spacious en-suite bathrooms with marble vanities. The interiors of the new-build hotel have been designed by Houston-based architecture and design firm Abel Design Group. Good to know: The hotel offers one of the city’s largest outdoor rooftops, with a custom-tiled infinity pool boarded by cabanas and a 2,500-square-foot greenspace, both providing views of downtown.

Sol 7, Thompson Houston’s signature all-day dining restaurant, is located off the lobby. It also offers rooftop seating where guests can enjoy creative cocktails and seasonal fare. Opening soon are two additional restaurants: Chardon, a French brasserie that will debut in summer, and Buck 40, an upscale supper club slated to open in fall 2024. All three restaurants are led by Executive Chef Alexandre Viriot, a Dallas native who has worked alongside Guy Savoy, Joël Robuchon and Alain Ducasse, at restaurants in Saint Petersburg, Doha, Paris and Macau.

Additionally, Thompson Houston is home to the first brick-and-mortar outpost of the local Maven Coffee Company, offering specialty coffees, pastries and coffee-based cocktails. Maven was founded by Houston Astros baseball player Lance McCullers Jr. with local youth entrepreneurs, Juan Carlos Martinez de Aldecoa and Blake Fertitta. Complementing these dining venues will be an additional collection of restaurants opening in spring 2024 from restaurant group Noble33, including Toca Madera, a modern Mexican steakhouse, and Meduza Mediterrania, an inventive Mediterranean dining experience.

Thompson Houston Panoramic Suite

The hotel’s sixth floor is dedicated to the full-service Thompson Spa, housing six treatment suites, indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, saunas, a salon and a 24-hour fitness center. A range of bespoke treatments is available to guests and locals, including massages, facials, body and hydration scrubs, men’s treatments, regenerative treatments and more. Guests will also have access to the EOS fitness center, just steps from the hotel.

Thompson Houston offers more than 17,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor event space to accommodate groups of up to 800 people. All venues have a residential feel, from intimate executive boardrooms to an 8,000-square-foot ballroom and a private terrace with a private entrance for large groups. Customizable breakout rooms and pre-function space also have floor-to-ceiling windows with many rooms affording private, wraparound outdoor terraces.

Guests can explore the nearby trails with complimentary Thompson Houston-branded Bluejay Electric Bicycles. Hydration stations are available on each floor in addition to daily newspapers and complimentary fresh fruit.

Nearby attractions include Galleria, the River Oaks neighborhood, downtown Houston, the Museum District, professional sports venues at Minute Maid Park and Shell Energy Stadium. The hotel is a 25-minute drive from George Bush Intercontinental Airport and William Hobby Airport.
