Perched on the site of a former summer camp in the rolling hills of Conroe, Texas, Hyatt Regency Conroe feels like a peaceful escape that’s somehow also in the center of the action.
The polished property is just 40 minutes away from the bustle of Houston, 20 minutes from the serene 21,000-acre Lake Conroe, and a quick 10-minute jaunt from the charming restaurants, culture, and nightlife of downtown Conroe.
“Hyatt Regency Conroe combines the beauty of its natural surroundings with the convenience of modern amenities, creating a uniquely Texas experience,” said Ildebrando Salazar, director of sales, marketing and events at Hyatt Regency Conroe. The property just opened in May, and its sparkling new amenities are a draw for conventions and leisure travelers alike.
The hotel boasts seven stories and 250 guest rooms, 13 of which are premium suites offering flexible workspaces and oversized windows. A chic outdoor terrace, garden and outdoor pool with an amenity deck all provide ample opportunity for relaxation between keynotes and breakout sessions.
“The hotel is thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of a variety of travelers by offering the tools to stay connected, provide stress-free environments for gatherings, and promote productivity and peace of mind,” Salazar said.
For meeting planners, Hyatt Regency Conroe is an all-in-one dream come true. Top-of-the-line on-site dining includes a luxe eatery with an exposed kitchen, an elevated lobby lounge and a grab-and-go market with specialty cafe drinks.
“Our banquet food and beverage philosophy really shines through in the quality of our offerings, and our outdoor deck can accommodate cocktail receptions for groups of 125-plus,” said Salazar.
With 30,000 square feet of event space, organizers can choose among a wide range of meeting spaces, from boardrooms to ballrooms, private dining rooms and patio space. These spaces can accommodate anywhere from 14 to 1,000-plus guests.
“Planners typically enjoy the newness of our meeting space and guest rooms and rave about the quality of our food and beverage offerings,” said Salazar.
The hotel’s convenient location right off Interstate 45 is the cherry on top, making it an ideal gathering space for groups of all kinds.
Hyatt Regency Conroe is equipped with 30,000 square feet of event space and eight meeting rooms. The property’s Regency Ballroom, its largest space, offers 14,003 square feet with 20-foot ceilings and can host as many as 1,400 seated guests. The Junior Ballroom offers over 6,000 square feet and capacity for 600 people. Both ballrooms can be divided into smaller spaces to accommodate more intimate gatherings. Two stunning outdoor patios — one at 3,159 square feet and another at 1,344 square feet — offer a change of pace for guests looking for a breath of fresh air. Two meeting rooms, two boardrooms, a private dining room, a club lounge and two expansive ballroom pre-function spaces assure options for every scale of event.
The hotel’s full-service restaurant, Conroux, is its shining star. Diners can enjoy indoor seating with exposed kitchen views or outdoor patio dining. This eatery features a menu of Texas Gulf eats and Vietnamese flavors. Visitors can unwind with a drink at Avenue A, the hotel’s lobby bar, which offers inviting outdoor seating. Guests on the go can stop by The Market, which offers an array of grab-and-go snacks and specialty cafe drinks.
The hotel is located in Grand Central Park, on the site of former summer getaway Camp Strake, surrounded by pine trees and natural Texas scenery. The great outdoors are just a few steps from the hotel, with greenery and wildlife surrounding the property. Nearby Sam Houston National Forest and W.G. Jones State Forest are great hiking destinations, and guests who want to get out on the water can take the quick 20-minute trip to Lake Conroe. With 157 miles of shoreline, the lake offers opportunity for swimming, fishing, water sports and lakefront eats.
Arts and Entertainment
Hyatt Regency Conroe is just minutes from an array of options for experiencing the arts. Crighton Theatre, a former vaudeville venue built in 1934, is a Conroe fixture that regularly hosts concerts and live performances. The Madeley Fine Art Gallery, operated by the Conroe Art League, features monthly galleries. The Heritage Museum of Montgomery County, which is located in a historic house, offers exhibits that explore the local history of the county Conroe calls home.
