The Whitehall Houston


When The Whitehall opened in 1963, the hotel’s style and architectural elegance resonated with Houstonians, who delighted in its striking design aesthetic, most notably the iconic spiral staircase that appears to float in midair and the brilliant Italian marble tile flooring. Against this backdrop, it’s hard to imagine a more timeless setting for a wedding celebration or milestone social event.

Imagine saying “I Do” to a romantic Southern wedding at one of Houston’s most iconic venues. At The Whitehall, we layer every celebration with our distinctive blend of sophistication, history and local charm - providing happy couples with a picture-perfect setting and unmatched service on their special day. Our downtown boutique hotel consistently ranks among Houston’s best wedding venues, thanks to staff whose warmth and genuine hospitality anchor every occasion.

Whether you want to dance the night away with up to 300 guests in the Bluebonnet Ballroom or envision an intimate dinner with family and friends in one of our smaller event spaces, our certified wedding planner will ensure every detail is flawless.
