JW Marriott Hotel Downtown At 806 Main St.


Houston19514

Recommended Posts

While I am disappointed with the restaurant atmosphere (a shame really), I have already reached out to my company's travel/logistics buyer to attempt negotiate a rate for this hotel. My guess based on what I have seen here is that the service and accommodations will be top notch.

I think that people will enjoy staying there and tunnel access is a big plus. We do a bunch of entertaining (business dinners, etc) those likely won't work well (bar, lobby, TV's, etc) and we will need to go to our other haunts. I also didn't see on my one visit if there was a "private dining area" that could be booked for small parties. Quattro has the wine room and two other function rooms. Same with Mortons and others. JW might, I just don't know. If it did, that would be a plus and we might be able to book a few more things there.

I think that my takeaway is this: put folks up there for their stay but plan business meals elsewhere.

Well, that will be great. I am fairly often in need to book a dinner for 8-12 people. If the room is too small it's terrible. If the room is too big it feels like a cave. Hopefully this space might work. Personally, I like the way Quattro at the four seasons is laid out..... Bar area in the front, big dining room and 3 function rooms off to the sides. It is gracious and accommodating. Not sure how a room on the 9th floor will seem --- i don't want things to feel like a "function" but more of a "restaraunt dinner". after it is open, I might go take a quick look.

Regardless, I commend Marriott for rehabbing this building and I wish them total success.

Hot-riveted iron support beams at Historic JW Marriott Houston Downtown

Throughout the lobby, hallways, and even inside some guest rooms, the original iron support beams have been uncovered and made a central design feature as a nod to the hotel’s history. Made by the same workers who built the Brooklyn Bridge, the workers’ original stamp is still visible on some of the supports.

  • The title was changed to JW Marriott Hotel Downtown At 806 Main St.
  • 2 months later...

According to documents recently filed to the Harris County Clerk's office, the parcel where JW Marriott Hotel Downtown Houston is located has been sold. The building is also known as S.F. Carter Second National Bank Building.

Documents indicate SWVPHouston Hotel LLC  acquired the hotel property at 806 Main. SWVPHouston Hotel LLC is an entity of Southwest Value Partners, a San Diego-based real estate investment company.

A termination agreement was also filed this month between Marriott Hotel and AVR Houston 806 Main Street LLC, a JW Marriott franchisee and previous property owner of 806 Main St.

Work was underway on the adjacent, abandoned building yesterday.    I'm pretty sure I read here on HAIF that the abandoned building is going to become part of the hotel next door.

Construction workers were inside and appeared to be gutting the place.  Lots of debris.

There is always that weird smell going from the building whenever I walk by

I could've sworn I read on here that the building (former Battlestein's) was sold by whoever owns the JW Marriott, but I can't seem to find the thread, so maybe I dreamt it.

Thanks, I thought the adjacent building (former Battlestein's) was sold, not the actual hotel, so it wasn't owned by the hotel anymore.  But, then again, maybe I dreamt it.

Does this mean that it won't be a JW Marriott anymore or will the new owners keep that brand?

I think JW Marriott will remain at 806 Main St.

About two or three weeks ago, new owners Southwest Value Partners filed a sales tax permit for JW Marriott. I assume that means it will continue to operate as a JW Marriott.

Good to hear it is staying. JP Morgan has most execs and VPs from NYC and London stay at this location, and we've heard nothing but good things about it whenever someone stays there.

I've stayed here once and it's a really nice hotel.  My room had an ipad in it for guest services which didn't work.  Spoke with the front desk and they said none of them worked correctly.

I recently stayed at the HALL Arts Hotel in Dallas and had the exact same issue!  Not sure why these 4 star hotels can't get their technology in order!

You're referring to the Battlestein's Building at 812 Main St. The property was purchased recently by Southwest Value Partners, who also acquired 806 Main St this fall.

Here is the post about it in the Battlestein's topic:
