Experience the warm culture and unique flavor of Houston at downtown’s most iconic boutique hotel.

Since first opening our doors in 1969, The Whitehall has made a name for itself as a landmark destination among downtown Houston hotels. With 259 meticulously renovated guest rooms featuring Sotherly’s Signature Beautyrest® mattresses, an outdoor rooftop pool, three thoroughly authentic eateries, a 24-hour fitness center, and signature treats including our “Sothern Delight” cookies, you’ll enjoy an unforgettable Houston experience with the perfect blend of sophistication and
Southern charm.

The Whitehall’s coveted location in Houston’s Central Business District is the perfect starting point for exploring the city’s hidden gems and can’t-miss attractions. We’re just a short stroll from the Theater District, sports arenas, and eclectic shopping as well as Houston’s trendiest restaurants and bars. Traveling on business? Our boutique hotel is less than a mile from the George R. Brown Convention Center and connected to Houston’s major corporations via skybridge as well as the Downtown tunnel system. The Whitehall’s friendly staff is also ready to help you experience Houston like a local with insider information and complimentary shuttle service to all downtown Houston destinations.

Downtown Houston’s Icon…Redefined

Celebrated for our genuine Houston hospitality and a distinctive design by renowned Los Angeles architectural firm, Welton Becket and Associates (including our famed Italian marble floors), The Whitehall remains the city’s premier choice for business and leisure travel. We’ve recently completed a total transformation of our guest rooms, public areas, and eateries, including the creation of Edgar’s Hermano, our casual coffee bistro, Buffalo Bayou Coffee, and a new outdoor restaurant and bar, Part & Parcel. Now beautifully refreshed yet remaining true to the hotel’s rich history and design, The Whitehall once again welcomes guests to an unmatched Houston original, immersed in authentic service and downtown’s vibrant local culture.

The Whitehall is a member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts and the Historic Hotels of America.
