The historic Sam Houston Hotel has returned to Downtown Houston. The Alden Houston – located at 1117 Prairie Street – recently finished renovations and reopened using its former name.

As such, the hotel is also known as “The Sam.”

  •     Complimentary overnight valet parking
  •     Breakfast for two in *17
  •     $25 credit in The Sam Bar

In addition to the new name, the hotel made sweeping renovations to guestrooms, meeting and event spaces, public spaces, and touch-ups to the award-winning onsite restaurant, *17, among other improvements to onsite and in-room amenities.

New Guestroom Amenities at The Sam:

  •     In-room Wi-Fi
  •     Keurig® coffee makers
  •     Russian blue granite-walled bathrooms
  •     Sleek glass showers
  •     40” LED flat-screen televisions
  •     Well-lit work desks
  •     Herman Miller ergonomic chairs

Visitors can still expect the same great dining experience at *17 Restaurant, serving market-driven, modern American favorites with hand-crafted cocktails and local beers.

Events and meetings at the hotel remain remarkable. The Sam has 7,000 square feet of meeting and event space for memorable occasions like weddings and corporate functions.
