The Post Oak at Uptown Houston is the newest member of Tilman J. Fertitta’s hospitality and entertainment family, and it’s one Golden Child.
Set to open in spring 2018, the 250-room luxe hotel is part of a Gensler-designed mixed-use project near Houston’s tony Uptown and Galleria areas set on 10 acres that also includes office, residential and restaurant spaces. The development is also near Fertitta Entertainment’s corporate headquarters, which allows for the hands-on touch when it comes to planning and monitoring the construction.
The suite offering will include a 5,000-square-foot Presidential Suite and 4,000-square-foot, two-bedroom chairman suites with private elevator access and all the latest high-tech amenities. Restaurant experiences will include the first Texas Mastro’s Steakhouse and a Willie G’s Seafood & Steaks. Other highlights will include a spa, salon and designer retail and boutique office space.
For meetings, a 16,000-square-foot ballroom—the largest in the Uptown area—and conference center, offering a total of 35,000 square feet, will be adjacent to the tower. Two large prefunction areas and a second-level, 3,000-square-foot ballroom and 10,000 square feet of conference and breakout space will round out the meeting facilities.
And when it comes to ultra-luxe, nothing says exclusive like the two-story Rolls-Royce showroom and Bentley and Bugatti showroom on-site at Post Oak Motor Cars, which will be on display from one of the prefunction areas.
The development will also boast an open plaza that features outdoor dining and pedestrian areas. Fitting with the name, Fertitta is said to have spent more than $1 million to transplant mature oak trees, along with preserving the existing oaks.
