The Sam Hotel - Wedding Venue

ABOUT The Sam Houston, Curio Collection by Hilton

A boutique hotel in the historic heart of the city.

Our doors first opened in 1924, when Prairie Street was covered in railroad tracks leading to Union Station, making The Sam the oldest operating hotel in the city. Today, we are just minutes from some of Houston’s biggest attractions and conveniently located in downtown. From vintage-inspired décor to a warm welcome at the front door, you’ll find The Sam a beautiful venue rich with Texas history.
