The Renaissance Hotel & Condominium at the Historic Texaco Building
Porte Cochère Entry
This downtown historic renovation consists of three office buildings constructed in 1915 (with a 1936 addition), 1959, and 1962 for the Texas Company, now known as Texaco. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 1915 and 1959 structures will be rehabilitated as a 370-key, 4-star hotel with 410 apartments located on the 15th through 17th floors of the 1959 building. The hotel’s main lobby will feature a bistro-style restaurant, an upscale lounge, and a lobby bar, which will add in the resurgence of activity in downtown Houston.
The non-historic 1962 building has been razed to allow a new porte cochère entry and multipurpose structure that connects the hotel buildings. This four-story central structure will house a 220-car parking garage, business center with boardrooms and meeting space, a spa and fitness center with a pool, and a 12,000-sf ballroom with pre-function space.
