A Stunning Hotel With a Story To Tell

A Historic Setting

The JW Marriott Houston Downtown building has a rich and storied history. Constructed in 1911, the building originally served as the Houston National Bank and was designed by the renowned architecture firm, Mauran, Russell & Crowell. The building's Beaux-Arts style is a nod to the bank's early 20th-century prosperity and is a perfect example of the grandeur and opulence of the era. After being vacant for several years, the building was converted into a hotel in the 1980s and was one of the first to open in the city's revitalized downtown area. Today, the JW Marriott Houston Downtown continues to stand as a symbol of the city's rich history and enduring vitality, offering guests a one-of-a-kind experience in a truly historic setting.
