About two weeks before Hurricane Harvey I toured the Omni Houston Hotel with the Houston Food Blogger Collective. We loved our tour and I actually wrote my review while holed up during the storm. I never shared the post though because I soon learned that the Omni Houston took on several feet of water and would be closed for renovations. Over a year later and $30 million in renovations, the Omni Houston is back open with a whole new look. Just last weekend, our group went back for a tour and I gotta say I love the new Omni Houston Hotel even more!
The most noticeable changes come in the lobby. Gone are the 80s marble counters. Now the lobby has a modern look with sleek black and white countertops and moss backdrops. There is also a touch of Texas with the lobby furniture. Another lobby highlight, the large moss wall fitted with old school binoculars. A peek inside of the binoculars will take you on a historic Houston home tour.
