^^^ those very shiny chrome numbers in the upper illustration, are rife for a quick lightning strike.  texas thunderstorms can be really dangerous.  also, they need to hurry-up and turn on that fountain in the lower illustration.  those very ugly plants are dying fast...

How are they any more dangerous than a street light?

^^^ i am not at all certain of "CHROME" street lights.  however, these huge chrome address numbers are at a hotel site featuring a high level of pedestrians/workers/officials all over the place.  normally, street lights are situated upon the streets.

however, the level of "danger" would be subjective...

All of the street lights on Post Oak are chrome and are on the sidewalk.

^^^ huge difference between "sidewalk on post oak" vs hotel property.  i would consider this a huge liability...

Do you not think there is metal on top of the building? Lightning finds the quickest path of least resistance.  That's why you see so many pictures of tall buildings being struck.  The odds of that chrome address sign being hit are going to be the same as any piece of sidewalk along any building in town.

^^^ @brijonmang here you go, now, let's look at it again.  "metal on top of the building" is just that... "metal on top of the building.  normally, during a dangerous TEXAS lightning/thunderstorm, people aren't sitting around chilling out in the open... around metal conduits on TOP of the building.  however, my chief and very initial concerns here, are the direct placement of these HUGE/GARGANTUAN polished chrome numbers located right in the front of a pedestrian area of a hotel.  upon how many times have we seen/witnessed/heard-of people getting struck/killed/harmed via dangerous lightning strikes?  please take a good close look at the provided illustration.  see the door directly behind it?  someone could very easily walk right out of that door during a lightning strike and get seriously hurt or even killed.  why on earth, do you think that officials stop football games during lightning storms and the such?  (they are extremely dangerous)  actually, i think that these shiny chrome polished numbers are very elegant, indeed.  however, there are very deadly venomous snakes that can be equally beautiful as well...

I've always approached the world in this way: There is no such thing as a stupid question, but there is such a thing as a stupid statement. Understandable if someone asked this Chrome thing as a question, but as statement...if this person wants to believe that Chrome on a street lamp next to a 16 story building is going to be priority one for lightning over a tall building then I say let them be. Especially if they don't want to take advice from either people in the business or a photographer that flies drones. Best let them believe what they want to believe.

@monarch You are totally right. I totally believe that those letters are dangerous, and so shall be struck by lightning to have them rid from the earth.

I love hotels. Always have.  But, this place?  This place does absolutely nothing for me.  I'm not even curious to inside and check it out.   

Are you saying that those absurdly, laughable, pathetic excuses for cornices don't tickle your fancy?! How dare you...

This has got to be one of the most surprising things I've ever read on this board!

For how slow this thing has come along, it sounds like it will have two pretty great restaurant options between this and AB Sushi:

I stayed here over the Holidays because my Mom and sister live close by. It's got a great vibe. I LOVED the room, especially the bathroom. And a big thumbs up to a real air conditioner that lets you actually control it. It's a bit isolated but when TMC3 opens, it'll be right in the heart of it.

"Blossom Hotel Houston near the Texas Medical Center has secured a $22.5 million commercial property assessed clean energy loan, commonly called a C-PACE loan, to cover the cost of previously installed energy-conservation systems.

Minnesota-based PACE Loan Group issued the loan, which will be paid back over the next 25 years, according to a news release. The company said the C-PACE deal is its largest to date."

Blossom is adding a new restaurant, according to an article Houston Chronicle published today. It's expected to open next year.

Called Molihua, the restaurant is one of three dining concepts coming to Blossom. The restaurants are from Boon Group, a hospitality company from chef Ho Chee Boon.


Details from Houston Chronicle:

When Molihua opens on the second floor of the Blossom Hotel, 7118 Bertner, in the Medical Center, it will be Houston’s most upscale Asian restaurant serving dim sum and sushi. It’s slated to open in February 2024, perhaps in time for Lunar New Year... The restaurant is one of three concepts he’ll unveil within the 16-story, 267-boutique hotel under his company the Boon Group.

After a splashy debut this past summer in San Francisco with modern Cantonese number Empress by Boon, Michelin-starred chef Ho Chee Boon is expanding to Blossom Hotel Houston with Duck House by Boon. It will be an upscale duck-focused Cantonese-leaning spot that will also offer dim sum and stir-fried dishes.
