Some things you have to see to believe.
Today, Houston billionaire Tilman Fertitta debuts his legacy mixed-use luxury development, The Post Oak at Uptown Houston. Primely located on 10 acres of gorgeous, oak-studded grounds, the 38-story tower is an instant must-visit for global luxury travelers and discerning Houstonians.
“Houston has never had a property like this, and I wanted to be the one to deliver it,” said Fertitta. “The Post Oak will stand up to the world’s best hotels. Guests will see the attention to detail we put into every touchpoint and the level of luxury they will not find anywhere else in Houston. It will certainly be a game changer.”

The standard-setting development exceeds your wildest dreams—everything you’d expect from the Chairman, CEO, and sole owner of Landry’s, Inc., Golden Nugget Casinos, and the Houston Rockets. The endless array of unique features includes a jaw-dropping, two-level Rolls Royce dealership, a sumptuous lobby with art by the iconic American artist Frank Stella, and a dazzling 16,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom, complete with a private entrance.
The crown jewel of Fertitta’s development is The Post Oak Hotel, resplendent with the last word in accommodations, made up of 250 luxe guest rooms and VIP suites, all larger than 500 square feet and boasting dramatic views. The hotel also features a 5,000-square-foot Presidential Suite, complete with a wraparound terrace, a private elevator, a fitness room, and a catering kitchen. 22 perfectly-appointed residential apartment units are available to rent on a short- or long-term basis—perfect for those who want to call The Post Oak home.
“We want our guests’ stay to be luxuriously effortless,” said The Post Oak Hotel general manager Jorge Gonzalez. “From the moment they step in to our lobby, it is our top priority to ensure they receive a personalized and unique experience.”
Step into the three-story glass lobby and be greeted by a grand chandelier inspired by the Dubai Opera House. Custom built in Czechoslovakia, the mesmerizing fixture glitters with 15,719 crystals, including 739 Swarovski crystal balls. Look down, and see custom Calcutta marble flooring; surrounding you, find Ebony Woodridge stone pillars, custom fabric wall panels, a hand-tufted silk abstract rug, and spectacular works of art from Frank Stella—fittingly, the space has been named the “Stella Lobby.” Look outside and find gorgeous views of the pool area through floor-to-ceiling windows.
On the first floor of the hotel, indulge in a show-stopping array of four unique dining choices. Bloom & Bee, the hotel’s main restaurant, serves fresh, locally-inspired cuisine—join them in celebrating their soft opening. H Bar is now serving light bites, alongside fine spirits, cocktails, and other libations. Coming later this week, Craft F & B will offer pub-style fare, including wood-fired pizzas, burgers, and craft brews. Greet the day with Bouchée Patisserie, serving Parisian-inspired pastries, specialty coffee, and other indulgences.
Adjacent to the hotel, discover two of Houston’s premier restaurants: Mastro’s Steakhouse and Willie G’s Seafood. The first Mastro’s in Texas is the glamorous place to see and be seen. Meanwhile, long-time Houston institution Willie G’s features stunning seafood on display, served in three distinct atmospheres: white tablecloth, casual, or the outdoor terrace.
Both restaurants offer an extensive wine list; more than 20,000 bottles—a staggering $3 million inventory—are available in the property’s wine cellar, The Cellar at The Post Oak. Order a bottle for your table, or even have it delivered to your room. Over 2,000 labels are on offer, including rare vintages dating back to the 1800s. Consult Master Sommelier Keith Goldston for recommendations for your special occasion.
It doesn’t stop there. Fertitta’s mixed-use project also features 11 stories of prime office space, designer retail boutique 29° North, a chic salon and luxurious spa, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Alongside the two-story Rolls Royce showroom within the hotel, turn to the on-property dealership, Post Oak Motors, for Bentleys and Bugattis available for purchase or admiring.
Needless to say, global luxury travelers and discerning Houstonians have a new must-visit destination on their horizons.
