A New Houston Hotel Nods To The Influence Of Women


Opening this summer in downtown Houston, the C. Baldwin hotel is named in honor of Charlotte Baldwin Allen, a 19th-century developer, businesswoman and philanthropist who funded much of Houston’s early growth.

The hotel, a renovation of the former DoubleTree, showcases the work of two contemporary women: internationally acclaimed architect Lauren Rottet of Rottet Studio in Houston and interior designer Kate Rohrer of ROHE Creative in Philadelphia.

Catering to leisure seekers and business travelers, the property will include 354 tasteful guest rooms, eye-catching common areas, a signature restaurant and bar, a lavish nail salon, selected local retailers, activated green space, and 14,000 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting and event offerings.
