Inspiration for the 21-story, 226-room hotel – an adaptive reuse of the iconic Great Southwest Building, originally known as the Petroleum Building, drawn from Houston’s unique history and rich culture. Take note of the property’s Art Deco details, including stone carvings from the original 1920s building; custom artwork highlighting the city’s oil industry roots, storied cowboy culture and NASA influence; and sophisticated, modern furnishings.

Located in the heart of the central business district at 1314 Texas Ave., the Cambria Hotel Houston Downtown Convention Center is a short walk to the George R. Brown Convention Center and Minute Maid Park, the home stadium of the city’s professional baseball team. The hotel is also conveniently near many of the city’s major corporations and the region’s largest employers, including Chevron Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and United Airlines, as well as many entertainment, dining, culture, history and performing arts offerings.
