The 468-room Four Seasons Hotel Houston celebrates its 40th anniversary with the completion of its multi-million dollar, multi-year transformation. The property opened on April 15, 1982 and has been a gathering place for locals and visitors alike, within walking distance of the city’s main entertainment and sporting venues and a short drive from the Museum Quarter.

“There’s no better way to celebrate our 40th anniversary than with the completion of the hotel’s magnificent transformation,” says General Manager Tom Segesta. “Our downtown destination is now better than ever, and we look forward to sharing more great experiences with guests and our beloved city of Houston as we move forward.”

The initial phase of the hotel’s transformation included improvements to the lobby and front promenade, spa and fitness center. Added during the project were Bayou & Bottle, serving an international menu and a host of specialty bourbons; Bayou & Bean, the establishment’s café; and a Topgolf Swing suite.

The hotel lobby now has a soothing color palette of deep sky blue fabrics complemented by warm shades of dark oak wood, rich saddle leather, and antique brass detailing. The public space features custom furniture from Houston-based designer Eric Brand.

289 rooms and 103 suites have been transformed, taking inspiration from the design of the great Texas sky. The 12 special suites – the State, Ambassador, Presidential and Penthouse suites – have been furnished with custom-designed pieces. Notably, the 1,570 square foot Presidential Suite and the 1,935 square foot Penthouse Suite have been completely redesigned and reconfigured, resulting in open and inviting layouts. The 64 one- and two-bedroom residential suites, ranging from 800 to 2,126 square feet, have also been redone and feature full kitchens, separate living areas, and washers and dryers.

On the dining side, Toro Toro is partner chef Richard Sandova’s new pan-Latin steakhouse. Playing on the double meaning of “toro” – bull in Spanish and prized tuna in Japanese – the restaurant’s menu is rooted in the vibrant flavors and friendly food culture of Central and South America, and offers diners a touch of contemporary steak house. with pan-Latin influences and Asian dishes.

The Four Seasons Houston now features a new bar, Bandista, an intimate, modern speakeasy reminiscent of a 1920s lounge. Guests in the 20-seat space are served interpretations of classic and contemporary cocktails, as well as rare spirits of the whole world.

The property offers 16,500 square feet of event space, which has been completely renovated. A new 7,568 square foot Grand Ballroom with 150% more gathering space was created during the project.
