Omni Houston Adds New Meeting Space

The Omni Houston Hotel has reopened its doors and is welcoming guests after undergoing a $30 million renovation.

The design of the 378-guestroom property's renovation aims to embrance Houston’s culture and attitude. 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.

The project's design inspiration draws from an authentic local aesthetic that includes leather, bronze, brass and lush greens, providing a new take on a “modern Texas” and welcoming natural light throughout with floor‐to‐ceiling windows and open communal spaces. The lobby has a moss wall behind three copper reception desks.

“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, in a written statement.

The first floor  continues throughout various public spaces, including the La Reserve whiskey lounge, which 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. 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 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 nightclub, Black Swan, also returns with a similar modern design. 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.
