C. Baldwin Officially Opens its Doors, Honoring the Past and Welcoming the Future of Hospitality in Downtown Houston

The hotel’s 14,000 square feet of premier, flexible function space was conceived to host events spanning from society galas and unforgettable weddings to a range of corporate needs. Each distinctive venue is named after a female leader or innovator, including Barbara Jordan, the first African American woman elected to the Texas senate; Adina De Zavala, the renowned Texas writer and preservationist; and legendary Port Arthur, Texas rock and soul legend Janis Joplin. The largest of 11 spaces, the 5,580-square-foot B. Jordan ballroom can accommodate up to 650 guests.

Upon leaving the hotel, guests can find themselves in the center of the action – from the offices of Fortune 500 companies and the trails of Buffalo Bayou Park to the Theater District, Market Square, George R. Brown Convention Center, and the nearby nightlife of Midtown and EaDo. Just a few blocks away from the property, guests can easily access the light rail line for quick trips to Hermann Park, the Museum District, Texas Medical Center and NRG Center.
