One of more than 530 Hilton Hotels worldwide, the Hilton University of Houston stands alone as the primary teaching facility for the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management. The hotel, first built in 1975, recently underwent a $12.5 million renovation and reopened as a "new" hotel in April 2010. The extensive renovation combines contemporary style with authentic Houston hospitality, giving guests a vibrant, warm and welcoming home away from home and allowing hospitality students to gain hands-on experience in guest service, hotel operations and banquet and restaurant service.
Hilton University of Houston features 86 hotel guest rooms. And with 25,000 square feet of flexible banquet space—including seven meeting rooms and three ballrooms with capacities ranging from 10 to 600 people—it's the ideal destination for meetings, banquets, receptions and special events. Additionally, business casual dining is available at Eric's Restaurant, just off the hotel lobby. Eric's also is a popular spot to meet for happy hour. The Fred Parks Boardroom, on the second floor of the hotel, offers a stylish alternative venue for breakfast, lunch or dinner meetings and features a remarkable wine collection. The boardroom can accommodate customized menus with wine pairings for up to 28 people.
Designed by Houston-based Portfolio and Associates, the hotel has international elements while staying true to the iconic language of Texas. From the driveway, porte-cochère and courtyard to the lobby, guest rooms, public spaces, meeting rooms and ballrooms, every detail of the hotel has been redesigned to express the vitality, style and hospitality of the Hilton Hotels brand.
Each guest room is furnished with the Hilton Serenity Collection, generous workspace and flat-screen TV. Other amenities include a 24-hour business center and complimentary wireless high-speed Internet access. Hotel guests also can access the nearby Campus Recreation and Wellness Center, complete with state-of-the-art workout equipment and an indoor and outdoor pool. Guests are also encouraged to explore the many venues at the University of Houston, including the Blaffer Gallery and performances at the Wortham Theatre on campus.
Hilton University of Houston's prime location—just three miles from downtown Houston and 10 minutes from William P. Hobby Airport—gives guests quick access to the world-class restaurants, exciting sports activities and cultural arts events that make Houston a top destination for business and leisure travelers alike. It also is the ideal hotel and meeting place for potential students, faculty, conference attendees, UH sports fans and other visitors to the University of Houston campus.
