Premier hospitality management company Davidson Hotels & Resorts has been selected by Development Service Group (DSG, Inc.) to manage Le Meridien Houston Downtown. Located in downtown Houston near Minute Maid Park and Toyota Center, the 255-room hotel is housed within the historic Melrose Building, which was the first Houston skyscraper designed in the International style and is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Le Meridien Houston Downtown is defined by its modern style with touches of European history, featuring 11,027 square feet of meeting and event space and three F&B outlets, including the award-winning Z on23 Rooftop lounge. The property will be operated by Davidson’s lifestyle and luxury division, Pivot Hotels & Resorts.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with DSG, Inc. and true to our core values, our team will create and deliver value in everything we do at the Le Meridien,” said Thom Geshay, President, Davidson Hotels & Resorts. “This highly-styled hotel, with creative F&B and the potential for innovative activations plays to the strengths of Pivot Hotels & Resorts. We look forward to driving market share, profitability, and an enhanced guest experience.”
“At Le Meridien Houston Downtown, our location enables guests to immerse themselves in the culture they crave based on our proximity to museums, theaters, attractions and much more,” said Gary Prosterman, President of DSG, Inc. “We are very confident in Pivot’s ability to serve as stewards for this exceptional, architecturally-significant property. We were drawn to the company’s hands-on approach, the owner’s mentality, and entrepreneurial management style; and we believe they will serve as the ideal extension of our team.”
The Melrose Building was designed by Hermon Lloyd and William B. Morgan, prolific Houston architects responsible for both large scale and smaller projects including the Astrodome and the Allen Center development.
