Houston’s most buzzed-about new lodge combines all issues Houston and all things retro less than a person A-framed roof.
Now open up to tourists, The Heights House Lodge at 100 W Cavalcade, formerly acknowledged as the Astro Inn, debuts entrepreneurs George Giannukos and Jivar Foty’s Rise Construction’s yearlong $3.5-million overhaul, which turned a run-down motel into a hip hangout for tourists and locals alike.
The three-tale boutique hotel—a to start with for the area—is house to 133 rooms and a 7,500-square-foot courtyard with a pool and turf-lined dining and seating spot.
In real Houston manner, there’s a best notch cafe and bar inside, Area Cowboy, featuring island-encouraged cocktails and cuisine by chef Lyle Bento and beverage beverage director Greg Perez until finally 2 a.m. And, of program, there are murals—two to be precise, from artists Sergio Aguilar and José Kontos from Monterrey, Mexico.
The original foyer was kept the same during the renovations, but it now boasts bright blue and orange accent partitions, funky neon signage, and a putting marbled entrance desk. The elevated mod style and design carries via to the guest rooms (beginning at $100 a night time) with fashionable globe lighting and mid-century furnishings, sourced from the Challenging Rock Lodge in Las Vegas.
Appears apart, the lodge also aims to offer company with individualized, fashionable-working day hospitality, like two-way SMS messaging out there to just about every guest throughout their keep, directed by Basic Supervisor Marrissa Selby (who beforehand served a Director of Rooms at Resort ZaZa) and Visitor Relations Manager Marlene Shunnarah. They’ll also assist set guests up with themed room decorations, discounted tickets to nearby White Oak Music Hall, and even an IV bar (by appointment) after a late night at Area Cowboy or a day in the incredibly hot Houston sun.
The staff has also kept locals in intellect with some of its pre-planed programming. Day-passes to the pool and courtyard are slated to go on sale for $20 in June and the lodge will give early-7 days charges to hospitality pros for staycations on Monday and Tuesday evenings.
