hmm I'm worried about the lasting aesthetic on this one. I could be wrong, but it looks like they are using a kind of faux stone, and simply placing it right onto the vapor barrier. I don't see any hangers or ties for it to be real stone, or a system of z ties which would indicate a rain screen system (which could use real or faux stone). Nope they are just slapping the faux stone right on top of the vapor barrier. That's disappointing. You might be able to get away with that in a more temperate climate, but our humidity is going to torture that facade over the next years.

Per the Houston Planning Commission, this plat requires a public hearing and a complete application that has yet to be provided by the applicant.  As such, Blossom Hotel and Suites was not considered at the May 28, 2020 VPCM.  Once the applicant provides a complete application to HPC, the commission will establish a public hearing date and updated signage will be posted on the property to notice the public.

Sneak peek: Blossom Hotel to open in Houston's Texas Medical Center area

The Blossom Hotel Houston will open at 7118 Bertner Ave. in the Texas Medical Center area in April 2021, according to a press release.

It's the first U.S. hotel for The Blossom Holding Group, which is based in Hangzhou, China, and began exploring overseas markets in 2014, according to the company's website. The company has owned the 0.92-acre site since Jan. 1, 2016, according to the Harris County Appraisal District. Work has been underway on the site since 2018, according to Houston architecture forum HAIF.

The 16-story hotel will feature 267 guest rooms and over 400,000 square feet of amenities, including three chef-focused restaurants, a lobby library, outdoor pool deck, top-tier fitness center, karaoke room, and 13 event spaces. Services will include long-term storage; laundry; language translation available in Mandarin, Spanish and German; appointment scheduling and travel services.

Blossom Hotel drew inspiration from the city's prominent health care and aerospace industries. There are lunar-inspired accents and décor featured throughout, including minimalist lunar-based color schemes in the guest rooms. Guest rooms also feature marble bathroom, complete with rain shower heads, robes, slippers and Gilchrist & Soames amenities.

In terms of the health care industry, Blossom Hotel will be across the street from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson's Mid Campus in the TMC area. Proximity to the Texas Medical Center is a major draw for hotel developers, which can then market their projects to out-of-towners traveling to Houston for treatment or to visit a patient at the TMC.

“We designed the hotel to mirror the union of both Houston’s unique character and our goal to embrace our international guests,” said Christen Larsen, director of sales and marketing. “Just as Houston has welcomed us, we are thrilled to welcome Houston and beyond to Blossom Hotel, a concept engrained into our brand identity: Be International. Be Houston. Be You.”

The new hotels underway in Houston come a particularly challenging time for the city’s hospitality industry. Social distancing mandates and travel restrictions implemented in the wake of Covid-19 have kept many potential travelers at home this year.

During the second quarter of 2020, revenue per average room — the industry benchmark for success — was down 61.6% in greater Houston compared to the second quarter of 2019, according to a recent report by San Antonio-based Source Strategies Inc.
