New Westin Hotel Breaks Ground In The Woodlands

The ground-breaking ceremony for the new Westin in The Woodlands was held on July 31st.

The new hotel has been in the works for 18 months according to Paul Layne, executive vice president of master planned communities for The Howard Hughes Corporation.

Developers of the hotel believe it will serve as a destination for business travelers and vacationers alike. “We think it will also serve as a great weekend destination. It will be a very high-end, yet fun hotel,” Layne said.

The Westin looks to claim its stake as the premier hotel in a city that has seen rapid growth lately. The brand has seen success in similar settings in Memorial City, Downtown, and the Galleria.

The hotel site is in a great location. The Woodlands Mall, the Waterway Square District and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion are all within walking distance for future guests of the hotel.

According to the Houston Business Journal, the hotel will have direct access to the fountains at Waterway Square as a bonus to the long list of luxury amenities expected of Westin Hotels.
