Tilman J. Fertitta creates one of the world's luxury destinations with soft opening of legacy hotel and mixed-use development
Businessman Tilman J. Fertitta is setting a new standard of luxury, comfort, and elegance in the nation's fourth largest city with The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston, an opulent soon-to-be five-star property with such unique features as a two-level Rolls Royce dealership inside the 38-story tower, a dazzling lobby with art by iconic American artist Frank Stella, and a glittering 16,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom with a private entrance now debuts as the premier gathering spot for high society galas this spring.
Fertitta, Chairman, CEO, and sole owner of Landry’s, Inc., Golden Nugget Casinos, and the Houston Rockets, has created one of the world’s premier luxury destinations in a lush 10-acre setting located in Houston’s tony Post Oak Uptown area.
“Houston has never had a property like this and I wanted to be the one to deliver it,” said Fertitta. “The Post Oak will stand up to the world’s best hotels. Guests will see the attention to detail we put into every touchpoint and the level of luxury they will not find anywhere else in Houston. It will certainly be a game changer.”
The centerpiece of the development is The Post Oak Hotel, with 250 ultra-modern guest rooms—each over 500 square feet—and VIP suites, all with every possible amenity a guest could imagine, and dramatic views of the surrounding area. The hotel also includes a 5,000-square-foot Presidential Suite with a wraparound terrace, a private elevator, fitness room, and catering kitchen; a 1,500-square-foot Post Oak Suite; and 22 superbly-appointed residential apartment units with full kitchens, washer and dryer, large walk-in closets, and deluxe accommodations that can be rented on a short or long-term basis.
Works of art from Fertitta’s private American art collection, include pieces by Robert Motherwell, Alex Katz, Donald Sultan, Joseph Glasco, Friedel Dzubas, and Howard Hodgkin, are strategically placed throughout the hotel, giving it a museum-quality feel.
The master-planned mixed-use project also features 11 stories of Class A office space as well as a designer retail boutique, salon, spa, and fitness center. In addition to the two-story Rolls Royce showroom located inside the hotel, an on-property dealership, Post Oak Motors, offers one-of-a-kind Bentleys and Bugattis available for purchase or just admiring.
Guests will find unparalleled service as the hotel is on track to receive the state's first prestigious Forbes Five Star rating reflecting the highest quality of service and accommodations expected by the discerning global traveler. Before their arrival, guests will be contacted to ensure that their every want or need is met during their stay at the hotel including preferred room temperature, allergy notifications, and any necessary travel arrangements.
“We want our guests stay to be luxuriously effortless,” said The Post Oak Hotel general manager Jorge Gonzalez. “From the moment they step in to our lobby, it is our top priority to ensure they receive a personalized and unique experience.”
