The SUM of All Parts Meetings Experience

In today’s new world of social distancing and corporate sanitization guidelines, the ordinary meeting is a thing of the past. Here at The Whitehall Houston, we believe meetings and events will play a critical role in the return of both the hospitality industry and our economy at large. To help lay the groundwork for our future – and to assist meeting planners in mitigating the increased risk inherent to our current situation – we have joined together with our sister properties in the Sotherly Hotels portfolio to deliver clear value and ROI in a new program we’re calling
The SUM of All Parts - Sotherly Understands Meetings.

  • This special provision applies to contracted room and food & beverage revenue
