Rich History

A mid-century architectural gem, The Whitehall has been a part of downtown Houston for nearly a half-century. It opened in 1963, setting new benchmarks for design excellence that remain unsurpassed to this day. Hint: Just take a look at the iconic spiral staircase that appears to float in midair.
